About Chin Augmentation
A chin that is too small or too large can negatively affect the proportion of the face and throw off facial harmony altogether. This can cause a lot of insecurity and can even lead to very low self-esteem. However, with chin augmentation surgery, your chin can be altered to a shape that is both flattering and complimentary to your existing profile. This can be achieved with implants or chin reduction surgery. Whichever route you choose, board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile can create a custom treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns. At Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, we want to educate and prepare our patients as much as possible. Therefore, we conduct a thorough examination and present before and after photos to patients who are interested in undergoing this procedure. Chin augmentation can also be combined with other facial surgeries such as a facelift or rhinoplasty.
The best candidates for chin augmentation surgery:
- Have a weak or short chin due to genetics or trauma
- Have a nose that appears too large
- Want a more proportionate look for facial balance
- Want a more distinctive profile
"From the moment I booked an appointment to my first day in the office, I have never felt so comfortable in a doctors office before. My whole experience has been amazing and the staff has been very accommodating for a life changing procedure, at least to me it was life changing in a positive way. I really had my decision narrowed down to two places and I truly believe the staff behind a good surgeon is extremely important and that is what sold me. I am 4 Weeks post op of a breast augmentation and I'm still healing but I'm finally loving my results now. With daily massage several times a day they are finally falling down into place and I can finally go bra shopping for normal bras! At the end of the day it's your body, and you're the one that has to live with it daily, so ask all the questions you need and want to know about any procedure and you'll be in good hands."- M.S. / Yelp / Jan 19, 2018

"Dr. Stile and his staff are the gold standard for what experiences like this are suppose to be. First off this office is absolutely gorgeous, envision what the inside of a palace would look like and that is what this office is! While I was waiting for my consultation one of the office staff came over with a rolling tea cart. Yes, a tea cart. A gorgeous sterling silver set with a variety of teas to choose from compliments of Dr. Stile. On the televisions there's a video reel of a variety of things from Dr. Stile providing different procedures, to consultations, to even advice. I was so impressed! I waited about an hour to be seen and was escorted back with yesenia (I think that was her name). She was so sweet, kind, and willing to listen to my concerns. Soon Dr. Stile came in and I showed him the birthmark I had been trying to remove for what seemed like my whole life. He listened and was empathetic to my situation, really understanding that this is something that has been a battle for me for so long. He asked about the laser procedures I had tried in the past with failed results. He offered me something different to try and an actual game plan for how we could go about treating it. We also discussed other procedures that I was interested in. Dr.Stile is kind and he really gives good advice as to what he would do and what to expect/how to address any issues. I really appreciated him being direct yet warm and welcoming to any questions or concerns I had. Lisa helped me with the cost of what procedures would cost and she was so awesome! She went over everything and wasn't super pushy like other places I've been to, she genuinely cared about answering my questions. This is absolutely the best experience I've ever had at a plastic surgeons office. I did so much research previously when I had a scar revision done with another surgeon in town and I so regret not coming here instead because the other surgeon left a mess. Don't make the same mistake as me in trusting anyone else instead come and see Dr. Stile, I promise you will be happy you did! Also huge plus, he doesn't charge an initial consultation fee! That's amazing considering most other places charge $50 just to see you! I am updating my review based on the experience I had today. My last experience was frustrating however I acknowledge that it was due to a single person giving me misinformation and not an accurate reflection of this entire facility."- S.N. / Yelp / Dec 19, 2017
"32 Year Old with 2 C-Section and a Hysterectomy - Dr. Stile was great! he really put my fiance at ease and made him feel like he really cared. Hopefully tomorrow at my early morning appointment, I can give you a better assessment because I was pretty out of it today."- M. / RealSelf / Dec 15, 2017

What to Expect
A patient will be under general anesthesia during chin surgery, which is performed as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility. The plastic surgeon will make a small incision on either inside of the mouth or under the chin. An implant, which is made of biocompatible, medical-grade materials, will be placed carefully into the incision. After the implant is placed, the incision will be closed. If the incision was made in the mouth, the patient will have no visible scarring. For incisions under the chin, the scar will be carefully hidden to avoid detection. The entire surgery takes around 1 hour to complete.
Right after chin augmentation surgery, a dressing will be applied to the chin where it should remain for 3 – 4 days. Patients can expect some pain, tenderness, and swelling. Also, patients can experience a tight, stretched sensation following surgery. These symptoms usually go away in about one week. After the swelling subsides in a few weeks, patients will be able to see the results of their surgery. The implant will look and feel like normal bone. More importantly, the implant will have the consistency of a patient’s natural tissue to make it appear more natural.
Plan Your Procedure
define your profile
A short chin not only makes your profile look weak, but can also make your nose appear to be large and disproportionate. While some patients think they need a nose job, they may only need chin augmentation surgery to achieve facial harmony and symmetry.
