About Chin Augmentation
Mentoplasty (known as chin augmentation) is a common cosmetic treatment that re-contours the chin and lower face for patients with a small and recessed chin or one they feel is too prominent. Often when a chin is recessed and sunken in, it can create an unpleasant and weak jawline. Chin augmentation can be performed to improve the appearance of your chin, and one of the most popular ways to do this is placing an implant to produce a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia offers several alternatives to consider for augmenting your chin. In addition to implants, which are created in a number of sizes and shapes, noninvasive procedures such as fillers can help add definition to your chin. For chins that are very large, genioplasty might be an option. This treatment at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery decreases the amount of bone and cartilage to reshape your chin and jaw to a more appealing size.
Mentoplasty is a procedure for men as well as women. If you are displeased by the size of your chin and do not like the undefined profile it offers, this treatment can improve the lower section of your facial structure. It's also fairly common for our patients to blend a rhinoplasty with their chin augmentation procedure. This combination of facial treatments offers great reassurance for the aspects of your face to be balanced and in proportion.

"From my very first consultation, I knew that I was in the best hands - I just wanted to take this time out to express how overwhelmingly happy I am with my Tummy Tuck results. The process of finding Dr. Movagharnia Fara who is a BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON with over 20 plus years of experience was very easy. I was referred to him by my best friend who has had a few procedures with Dr. Fara, and her resluts and overall experience were AMAZING! From my very first consultation, I knew that I was in the best hands. I expressed to Dr. Fara how unhappy I had been for years with the excess skin and fat on my stomach. He assessed my concerns and assured me that he would be able to give me a flatter tummy. He was very thorough with the details of the surgery and was able to answer every question and concerned that I had with very honest responses. I knew immediately after my consultation that this was the Dr. I wanted to move forward with. He gave me very precise instructions to prepare for my Tummytuck and 2 months later on November 21, 2022, my life changed forever. I am now 4 weeks post-op and I am so HAPPY with my results. I feel very blessed that I chose Dr. Fara and I look forward to the positive progression that I will have through out my healing process. Thank You Dr, FARA!!!! You are the ABSOLUTE BEST PLASTIC SURGEON EVER.......God Bless you, and your AMAZING STAFF, Mrs. JUDY and Mrs. FARA.Sincerely,Lynese Doukoure"- A. / RealSelf / Dec 23, 2022

During chin enhancement surgery, general anesthesia will be administered. The incision is made beneath your chin. In this incision, a groove or pocket is created to hold the implant device in its proper place, which involves reducing some of the tissue, cartilage, and bone to create grooves to securely keep your implant in position. The chin implant is moved through the opening and positioned on top of the bone, just below your lower lip. Sometimes, the incision can be created inside the lower lip where it connects to your gumline. Both types of incisions help to conceal scars. Small sutures are used to close the incisions, and the bottom portion of your face will be wrapped with bandages.
