There are two key features to a balanced facial profile, your nose and your chin. The chin is an essential feature of your appearance and if it is understated, it will make your facial profile uneven.
Typically, a strong and broad chin is considered attractive to men. While a more delicate and narrow chin is appealing to women. However, whether you are a man or a woman, if you are not happy with how your chin looks you may choose to have cosmetic surgery to aid your appearance.
Chin augmentation is a type of genioplasty or mentoplasty (chin surgery). It is a cosmetic surgery done to balance your lower face by altering the soft tissue, skeletal, and dental parts of your face. This type of cosmetic surgery is perfect for both men and women who think that their chins are not shaped proportionally to the rest of their face.
The procedure is normally performed at the same time as rhinoplasty or facial liposuction.
Chin Augmentation can be performed via two types of procedure:

If you have been under general anesthesia, you will most likely be required to stay twenty-four hours in the hospital. Note that your scheduled follow-up checkups with your surgeon are essential to your recovery and healing. You will also need to go back to your surgeon after a few days to get the stitches removed. Thus, it is a good idea to stay in South Africa for 5 to 7 days following your surgery.
Be prepared to experience bruising, swelling and some discomfort for a couple of weeks. Strictly follow all your doctor’s instructions to help you heal faster.
Typically, you will be able to see results within a month after your surgery. Final results will be apparent, usually after 3 months, when residual swelling has subsided.
As for chin reduction, most patients can return back to their daily routines within three to five days after their operation. However, you will be advised to skip exercise for the first ten days, as well as not participate in any sports for six to eight weeks.
Implants most likely have similar recovery time to chin reduction because your tissue will also take a little time to adhere to your implant.
You will need to eat a soft-food or liquid diet as soon as you feel comfortable. Make sure to limit yourself to eating soft foods and be careful not to open your mouth too widely while you are still recovering.
Patient reviews often highlight that their Chin augmentation has boosted their self-image and self-confidence.
However, like any other surgeries, chin augmentation also poses some risks and complications. Although these instances are very rare, it is also important to be aware of them:
The most common reason for having a chin enhancement is usually to correct a recessive or weak chin. While a lot of people would actually prefer to have their facial features enhanced, not all are open to going under the knife to achieve a more appealing appearance.
Today, there are some non-surgical alternatives to cosmetic surgeries, as for chin augmentation procedure, one alternative is:
Chin fillers - small amounts of hyaluronic will be injected into your chin and cheeks to help define your jawline, giving you a strong chin. Chin fillers have a minimal recovery period and the procedure will not take long as compared to the surgery. However, the result is only temporary. It mostly only lasts between nine to twelve months, so if you want to maintain your well-defined chin, you have to go for a repeat session.
