    CHIN AUGMENTATION

    Men and women all over Illinois experience how important a “strong” chin is to the appearance of one’s facial proportions, and one’s career. The contour of a patient’s chin and jawline are very important features that contribute to a balanced and attractive face. A “weak” or under-projected chin and jawline significantly distort one’s appearance, and statistics show may affect employment or salary. A weak chin may cause a woman’s neck to appear much older and may cause a man’s face to appear less masculine. From the side view of one’s face, a weak chin may create an illusion of a larger nose.

    A weak or receding chin is usually a physical trait a patient is born with. A chin may recede with age or through a traumatic injury. Chin augmentation surgery increases the prominence of a weak or receding chin. This procedure significantly improves facial harmony, making patients feel so much better about their appearance and helping them to regain their confidence.

    Who is a Candidate for Chin Augmentation?

    Healthy men and women seeking improvement to the appearance of their chin and / or jawline are excellent candidates for chin augmentation. Dr. Sanjay Keni will evaluate your candidacy during a consultation. Dr. Keni carefully reviews your medical history and cosmetic concerns. A dental exam and X-ray of the chin and jawline may be necessary to help Dr. Keni evaluate teeth alignment, facial structure, and soft tissue. Dr. Keni works with you to select the best implant option to deliver optimal aesthetic results.

    What is the Recovery like from Chin Augmentation Surgery?

    Chin augmentation is performed under light sedation or local anesthesia, depending on a patient’s preference. The procedure only takes about one hour. A soft and flexible silicone implant is used. Chin implants come in various sizes, shapes, and is personalized to each patient. A small incision is made in a natural crease under the chin. Dr. Keni creates a small pocket and the chin implant is inserted and positioned securely. The incision is closed and the area is secured with bandages for recovery. During a consultation, Dr. Keni will help determine the shape and size of the implant most appropriate to achieve beauty and balance to your facial appearance.
    Chin augmentation is accomplished in an outpatient setting. Most patients return to home after only a few hours. Recovery is usually less than one week, at which time patients may return to work and non-strenuous activities. Mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising are common the first few days after surgery. Most patients feel confident returning to their public and social lives in 5-7 days. Dr. Sanjay Keni reduces bruising and recovery time with the use of homeopathic and herbal options. Detailed postoperative and aftercare instructions will be provided to each patient.

    • “I had a lifestyle lift done [at Keni Plastic Surgery] last Thursday and I can see the results. I had no idea to expect. I had radiation to my neck eight years ago and it really damaged that area. I could not stand to look at my neck. Dr. Keni told me he thought he could make improvements and I trusted him. Because radiation is so hard on the skin it makes it really difficult to fix. Other plastic surgeons said the procedure would not have worked out well. But, Dr. Keni had a great idea and GOOD LORD my neck is so pretty now. I could see it after the surgery and I am glad I had it done. For any women or men that have had to go through some sort of radiation in the neck area, all I can say is “WOW!” It is fixable.”
