Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation or genioplasty is a procedure to correct and reposition the chin either through surgery of the bone or placement of a small implant. Chin augmentation surgery can often be performed through an incision inside the mouth, concealing the scar completely. In other cases, the scar is hidden underneath the chin. In some patients the changes can be performed through reshaping of the chin bone itself, and in others a small implant is placed to enhance the size of the chin, creating a more balanced appearance of the face.

In either case, Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. Repta will discuss with you your options as well as your goals, determining which surgical route is best for you. Doing so will allow you to better understand your options and decide which chin shaping procedure is best for you.

Chin Reduction

As with chin augmentation, chin reduction surgery begins with an incision hidden inside the mouth or discreetly under the chin. Using special surgical tools, Dr. Repta will detach the bone at the tip of the chin, remove any excess bone and reshape the chin to a more appealing contour. The tip is then repositioned with the remaining section and held together using tiny screws and plates. The incisions are then closed with fine dissolvable sutures.

“Double Chin” Surgery

For some patients, no matter how much they exercise or diet, they just can’t seem to get rid of the double chin. Fortunately there is a minimally invasive and effective solution for getting rid of the infamous “double chin.”

To reduce a double chin, Dr. Repta will first make a tiny incision under the chin, through which he will insert a small stainless steel tube known as a cannula, allowing him to suction out excess fat from the chin area. This procedure can be performed with a local anesthetic if desired and is considered minimally invasive, making it very appealing for many patients.

For such a simple procedure, the results are truly incredible, often taking years off a patient’s appearance.

Repta Plastic Surgery


No matter what route is taken to enhance the chin, it is common for patients to experience some bruising and swelling in the area and it is recommended that patients rest for the first few days, keeping the head elevated. Depending on which procedure is done, full recovery can take anywhere from one to three weeks. Dr. Repta and his staff will discuss in detail your exact recovery route, assisting you to heal as swiftly as possible.
