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.
"A wonderful surgeon and person! - I am so glad that I found Dr Movagharnia! I rarely write reviews, but I had to do this one. The decision to go under the knife can be an extremely scary and difficult one. I want to share that I have had a wonderful, life-changing experience with Dr Movagharnia. I went to him for help with a botched surgery outcome at the hands of another well-known Atlanta surgeon. My experience with him has been nothing short of redeeming and therapeutic. Dr Movagharnia is not only a skilled surgeon, but a genuinely caring, gentle, and hard-working person. During my consultation and preparatory appointments, Dr Movagharnia went to great lengths to ensure that he understood what I hoped for, and that I understood what my options were and what he could do. He shared his expertise honestly so that I could make informed decisions. He went over my chosen procedures in detail, letting me in on every decision that I had previously been excluded from. I’m happy with the transformation that is happening for me, and to know that this was done by Dr Movagharnia! He has truly partnered with me throughout this process. My recovery from the surgery was so much easier than I anticipated, and from experience, I know to attribute this to his gentle precision in the operating room. I was off my pain medication in one week. His sutures were actually beautiful. He followed up to make sure I was doing well after surgery, even over the weekend and after hours. The people working in the office are such friendly, kind people too! Judy responds to every email or call within one day. I feel cared for, and went under anesthesia knowing I was in good hands. I’ve been treated with such kind attention and am so appreciative. Though I’m still healing and my final results will not be evident for another 2-3 months, I’m already amazed and excited! Dr Movagharnia takes pride in his artistry and his ethic, loves what he does, and empowers his patients before and after surgery with information, with proper preparation, and with post-surgery exercises to facilitate healing and best result. He wants his patients to feel proud and be happy and healthy. He has been here for me every step of the way and sincerely wants to make sure we achieve the best possible result. I have had every question or concern immediately addressed. It is critical to be in the care of someone skilled and compassionate. I recommend Dr Movagharnia. He is exactly the kind of doctor I want my family and friends to see."- S.A. / RealSelf / Dec 06, 2019

During chin enhancement surgery, general anesthesia will be administered or, in some cases, another form of anesthesia such as IV sedation. 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.
