Chin augmentation is a cosmetic procedure where implants get inserted under the skin to improve contours around the chin, neck, and jawline. It’s a form of facial rejuvenation that results in a more attractive balance between facial features.
A chin augmentation procedure is a cosmetic treatment by Dr. Anthony Farole at his full-time practice in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania. Dr. Farole is an experienced board-certified facial cosmetic surgeon backed by an expert team of surgical assistants and staff.
Is a chin augmentation part of a facelift? Chin implants can and often do get combined with facelifts to produce the best possible results for patients. Learn more about chin augmentations and combined facelifts below.
What Is a Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation or ‘genioplasty’ is a facial rejuvenation procedure. It addresses concerns such as a recessed or ‘weak’ chin, and it’s an ideal procedure for people that feel their facial features lack proportion and want to be more confident about their facial appearance.
If you have a small chin bone, the procedure can also help reduce the appearance of a full or “double chin.” A chin augmentation uses implants made of silicone, Teflon, or dacron to produce a patient’s desired results.
What Is a Facelift?
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is another cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedure. The aim of a facelift is to correct mid-face cosmetic concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, nasal folds, sagging cheeks, and loose skin.
If you have a facelift, you will enjoy having a more youthful-looking face. Facelifts are one of the top five cosmetic procedures carried out in the United States. As an expert cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Farole has conducted numerous facelifts for patients at his practice.

Will My Facelift Include Chin Augmentation?
Facelifts don’t typically include chin augmentation because some patients wouldn’t benefit from the procedure. However, Dr. Farole will conduct a thorough assessment at your initial consultation and discuss your needs.
As part of his assessment, Dr. Farole may recommend you have a chin augmentation during your facelift. This is known as a combination procedure.
Benefits of Combination Procedures
There are many benefits of combination chin augmentation and facelift procedures. For example, there is only one recovery timeline because you’ve had both procedures conducted in the same surgery session.
Secondly, the cost of combination procedures is lower compared with doing each procedure separately as you won’t have to pay for two lots of anesthesia, for instance. And last but not least, you will enjoy enhanced results from having both procedures done simultaneously.
Am I a Candidate for Combining a Chin Augmentation With My Facelift?
You could be a good candidate for a combination chin augmentation and facelift if you wish to improve your facial harmony and simultaneously diminish cosmetic concerns like sagging cheeks, loose skin, wrinkles, and fine lines.
Such combination procedures are also ideal for patients that are non-smokers or are willing to give up smoking several weeks before and after the surgery and lead a generally healthy lifestyle.
