A Small Change Makes a Big Difference
There are a few ways to improve the shape and prominence of a small chin. For example, dermal fillers can subtly build volume to enhance your chin’s contours.
Fillers are minimally invasive and produce temporary results that will need to be maintained with touch ups On the other end of the spectrum, some people seek surgical revision of the bone itself—a more invasive procedure that requires a longer recovery time. Another option is to have Mission Viejo chin implant surgery.
Implants are an attractive option because they permanently and significantly enhance the chin without requiring a lengthy surgery or recovery. The implant is made of a solid but flexible biocompatible silicone that mimics the natural curvature and projection of the chin. Implants come in a range of shapes and sizes, giving you and your surgeon exceptional control over your results. They are placed via a small incision that will not be visible once healing is complete.
Permanently Strengthen Your Profile
A chin implant improves your appearance in a few ways:
The results of a chin implant are permanent though it’s always possible to remove the prosthesis later if desired. The enhancement provided by a more shapely, proportional chin can subtly but significantly elevate your entire appearance.

Care Crafted for You
During the planning stages of your chin augmentation surgery, you will select the best implant for your face from a range of sizes and shapes. For your comfort, your procedure may be performed using a combination of local anesthesia, and intravenous sedation. First, Dr. Bolourian will make a tiny incision either inside the mouth or below the chin. Next, he will fit the implant against the bone of the chin; depending on the details of your specific procedure, he may secure the implant in place with a small screw. He will then carefully close the incision with sutures and bandage the treatment area. The chin implant procedure takes about an hour, and you will be able to go home to recover on the same day.
A Positive Transformation
When it comes to the look and feel of our biocompatible silicone chin implant Mission Viejo patients tend to be very satisfied with this procedure's beautiful and natural-looking results. People of any age or gender who want to improve the look of their chin are good candidates for chin augmentation via implant. Revising the shape and size of your chin to better complement your features and face shape can positively transform your appearance for increased pride and confidence in the face you present to the world.
Here to Support You
Downtime after chin augmentation is relatively short, and most patients return to work and other regular routines after a few days. Discomfort is minimal and easily managed with pain medication. You may apply a cold compress to reduce swelling at the treatment site.
For optimal recovery, follow all provided aftercare instructions. You should not engage in strenuous exercise for three to four weeks. You may also have to alter the way you sleep for a little while to protect the treatment area and keep swelling down. Your final results will be visible at three months post-surgery when the swelling has completely subsided and your implant has settled firmly into position.
Chin implants offer permanent facial enhancement. However, they can always be removed and exchanged if desired.
Yes, chin implant surgery is considered a safe procedure. The implant is made of an FDA-approved biocompatible silicone elastomer that has been used in different types of medical implants for decades. However, as with any surgery, there are certain risks, such as an adverse reaction to anesthesia, infection, or internal bleeding. The implants are solid silicone elastomers, therefore there is no chance for leakage or health concerns that silicone breast implants may present.
