ATMA has improved the profile of countless Peruvian patients through a surgery known as chin augmentation (mentoplasty). Using a biocompatible synthetically produced flexible silicone implant, the features of the lower jaw can be strengthened to provide a wider, more prominent chin. This surgery is aimed at individuals who feel that their chin is too small, or doesn’t fit with the natural angles of the face and neck. AMTA will discuss the various implant shapes and sizes that are available, and develop a surgical plan that meets the aesthetic goals of the patient.
Most patients can expect to pay around $3,300 for a chin augmentation procedure. The exact and final cost will vary depending on the extent of the surgery.

CHIN AUGMENTATION FAQS
Chin implants are designed to offer patients a sharper, stronger look to their jaw line. Those who have a “double chin” may be better candidates for a liposuction procedure where the fat within the chin and neck is removed. Sometimes this technique alone can create a new profile and look without needing to have an implant procedure.
It will be very normal to feel numbness and a change in skin sensation following chin augmentation surgery. As the implant gets used to its new habitat, nearby tissue and jaw line structures will also get used to having it there. Several weeks after surgery, this heightened sensation will begin to subside and, over time, normal sensitivity will gradually reappear. It may take up to a full year for patients to regain full sensitivity.
Scarring is very minimal with chin augmentation surgery because the incision is placed either on the inside of the mouth, where it is completely hidden, or it is made under the chin. Even the incision done under the chin will be mostly concealed or hard to see during social situations.
In addition to chin augmentation with implants, some individuals may be suitable candidates for genioplasty. This is a procedure that reshapes the chin by surgically repositioning the chin bone. This procedure is more complex than implants alone, and is sometimes considered a reconstructive surgery. In some cases, genioplasty will be done in combination with neck liposuction and chin implants.
