Best Aventura Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure performed by Dr. Richard Galitz in which a chin implant is placed in the front of the chin to make the chin more prominent. The surgery can build up a receding chin and improve overall facial harmony. This is a safe, easy procedure that is ideal for anyone with a weak-looking chin seeking better definition. It is often paired with rhinoplasty for those with a weak chin who are also looking to draw less attention to the nose.

Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Galitz performs chin implant procedures in the office-based surgical suite at Aventura Plastic Surgery in Aventura, Florida. Procedure times average thirty to forty-five minutes. Local anesthesia is typically used, though IV sedation may be used as well. The incision is small and is located under the chin. Through this incision, the implant is inserted and precisely placed along the lower edge of the jawbone. There are a variety of chin implant sizes and shapes, which allow them to be custom fitted to the individual patient.

How Long is Chin Augmentation Recovery?

The recovery after chin augmentation takes approximately one week. It is not uncommon for patients to experience some discomfort in the first few days, and this can be alleviated with medication. Bruising and swelling are also common. Talking, smiling and other facial movements may be difficult at first. Stitches are removed after one week. Patients are generally able to return to work within two days of their chin implant procedure, though more strenuous activities and exercise should not be resumed until at least one week. As with other types of surgery, there are potential complications and these may include numbness, infection, and poor implant placement. Choosing an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon for your chin augmentation surgery in Miami, FL can help to minimize your risks while maximizing your results.

Why Have Chin Augmentation Surgery?

Some people are looking to enhance the level of definition of their chin and sharpen the angle between their face and neck and so that the barrier between the two is more clearly defined. Having chin augmentation surgery can improve the overall harmony and visual structure of a person’s face. Not only that but it can also:

  • Correct a recessed chin
  • Reduce the look of a full or double chin in people with small chin bones
  • Create definition in the jawline

Chin augmentation surgery is permanent in nature and the results should last for the rest of your life.  When looking to have chin augmentation surgery done in Miami it is important to find a qualified plastic surgeon near you who understands the goals you are trying to achieve by undergoing this procedure. It’s important that the size of the chin implant matches your other facial features so you’ll be left with a natural appearance.

How Much Does a Chin Implant Cost in Florida?

The average chin implant cost in our Aventura, Florida plastic surgery office is $4,500. This is significantly lower than the average cost of a chin augmentation procedure in other offices near us. Those procedures range from about $5,000 – $6,000 according to the most recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This average cost is only part of the total price and does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities, or other related expenses.  Our chin implant cost is lower than other Florida plastic surgeon’s offices near you because we are one of the only plastic surgeons to use local anesthesia in our office. We recommend contacting Dr. Galitz for a chin implant quote.

It’s important to note that chin implant and augmentation is considered a cosmetic procedure, not a medical necessity. Therefore, insurance will likely not cover the procedure and you’ll be responsible for the out-of-pocket expense. The good news is that Dr. Schalit will be happy to work with you to design a payment plan you can comfortably afford. We also have some of the lowest chin liposuction cost in the area.
