What is Chin Augmentation?
How much does chin Augmentation cost in Iran?
chin Augmentation cost in Iran is around $1300.
Chin augmentation surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure which uses either an implant or patient’s own jaw bone to enlarge the appearance of a “weak” chin and create better balance among the facial features. When the patient’s own bone is used to enhance the chin the operation is referred to as a sliding genioplasty.
Today, there is also the option of using safe silicone implants to provide better chin projection. Although surgery provides a more permanent option to chin projection, FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly used to shape and enhance the chin size. Often times a chin augmentation is done in conjunction with a rhinoplasty to create better overall facial harmony.

During Chin Augmentation
Chin Augmentation Surgical Techniques
The two surgical options that exist for chin augmentation include placement of chin implant or a sliding genioplasty.
How is chin implant surgery performed?
Chin implant surgery is usually an outpatient procedure, performed using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. A small incision is made either underneath the chin or inside the mouth. Through this incision, the cosmetic surgeon creates space for the chin implant and fits it around the chin bone.
Chin implant surgery alone typically takes less than 1 hour to perform; however, if you are having additional procedures, operating time will increase accordingly. Following surgery, the incision is closed with sutures and the chin may be bandaged.
What does a chin implant look like?
Chin implants are small, solid devices made from a biocompatible material, usually silicone, which has been molded to fit around a patient’s chin bone. Chin implants vary in size and contour; your cosmetic surgeon will help you choose an implant that will achieve your desired degree of enhancement and provide the most natural looking result.
When inserted, chin implants feel very similar to a natural chin bone, and when performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon, it is usually impossible to tell that a patient has had chin augmentation.
A sliding genioplasty is an operation where the patient’s own jaw bone is cut and the lower region of the jaw is moved forward and held in its new position with permanent screws. The main advantage of a sliding genioplasty over a chin implant is that both the chin height and projection can be altered. For patients that are concerned about having a foreign body or implant placed inside their body this procedure provides an alternative approach. A sliding genioplasty is a much bigger operation than a chin implant placement and is almost always performed under general anesthesia.
After Chin Augmentation
Recovering after chin augmentation surgery
Most chin augmentation patients experience relatively little downtime and are back to desk work and most other daily activities within 7 days after surgery. Discomfort is typically minimal and easily controlled with pain medication or cold compresses.
You will need to sleep face-up, with your head elevated, for a minimum of 1 to 2 weeks after surgery to help control post-op swelling and protect your healing incisions. Your cosmetic surgeon may also require you to consume a liquid-only diet for a day or two after surgery. Strenuous activity can typically be resumed within 3 to 4 weeks after chin augmentation. It is important to follow your cosmetic surgeon’s specific instructions during recovery to ensure you heal well and your results look great as soon as possible.
Results look close to final within one month after surgery, and are considered final after about 3 months, when residual swelling has subsided.
Expected surgical outcome
Chin implants are very strong, durable medical devices and are intended to be permanent. While the aging process will affect your facial appearance in other ways, your enhanced chin contour will not change. There is a slight risk that trauma to the face could damage a chin implant and require another surgery to replace it.
