Chin Augmentation

By correcting the appearance of a weak or recessed chin, chin augmentation in Manhattan can improve the overall balance of your facial features.

An established plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, New York City (NYC), bodySCULPT® provides a range of plastic surgery treatments and cosmetic procedures to improve your appearance and boost your self-esteem. With long-term experience in specialized facial rejuvenation procedures, bodySCULPT® plastic surgeons provide chin augmentation surgery, a permanent approach to redefine chin contour.

If you think that improving the definition of your chin could result in better balance of your facial features, we can help. Our surgeons use the latest surgical techniques to reshape and enhance the chin and harmonize it with the rest of the facial features.

Chin augmentation in Manhattan can successfully address concerns such as:

  • A weak and receding chin
  • A double chin
  • A receding jawline
  • Defects caused by injury
  • Imperfections due to congenital conditions


Increasing the projection and definition of the chin can improve your profile. Chin augmentation in our New York City surgical practice includes both conventional and advanced chin augmentation techniques. Our NYC plastic surgeons can tone a receding or weak chin by modifying its projection to provide a stronger, well-defined appearance. Chin enhancement is accomplished through:

  • Insertion of an implant
  • Chin bone reduction surgery

Placing a custom-fit chin implant can add strength to a weak or recessed chin. Bone reduction surgery involves cutting the bone under the jaw area and moving it to the desired position.


With extensive experience in facial cosmetic surgery, our plastic surgeons provide safe and effective treatment to help patients achieve their specific goals. Our chin augmentation procedures are safe and effective, and do not affect your bite or jaw functioning.

We use a wide variety of advanced, solid and semi-solid implant materials in different shapes for reshaping the chin. The chin implant material is inserted under the skin to reshape the skin. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. The steps involved in this cosmetic surgical procedure are as follows:

  • The soft tissues along the front of the jawbone are raised and a pocket is created to place the implants
  • An incision in made directly behind the crease under the chin or inside the mouth to place the implant
  • After the implant is inserted, it may be held in place with stitches
  • The incision is closed in a way that the soft tissues cover the implant

NYC chin implants are made of synthetic material and come in different shapes and styles and our surgeons can help you choose the option that will best meet your aesthetic goals and provide attractive, natural looking results.


At bodySCULPT®, we are committed to providing natural-looking improvements for our patients. For that we take each patient’s needs and desires into account, and deal each procedure in a personalized way. Our team of surgeons can work with your specific expectations, concerns and goals. Whether you want chin augmentation surgery alone or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenating procedures such as cheek implant and nose surgery, bodySCULPT® can help. We ensure customized treatment and care in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.

Chin implant surgery in Manhattan can be provided in combination with cheek implants and lip augmentation surgery. Patients undergoing nose surgery can also opt to have the procedure to achieve more harmonized facial proportions.

Good Candidates for Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation in Manhattan is an ideal option if you have a weak chin or a chin that is too short, or you feel your facial features lack proportion. You should be physically healthy, at a stable weight, and a nonsmoker. It’s also important that you have realistic expectations about the outcome.
