When the chin is weak or undeveloped, it can throw off the balance of all the other features, while causing the nose to appear larger. A recessed chin can also cause the neck to appear fatter than it is, and give the lower face a disgruntled facial expression. Chin augmentation works to resculpt the jaw area for a more proportionate aesthetic. It improves the facial expression, creates harmony with the nose, and can boost self-confidence in one’s image.

Understanding the Chin Augmentation Procedure in Detail

Dr. Karam can perform either a surgical or non-surgical chin augmentation procedure. The doctor is well-versed in both techniques and can go over their advantages and disadvantages with you in detail during your confidential consultation. If surgery is the approach, then the incision is made below the chin where it is largely invisible. Alternatively, the incision may be placed within the mouth to completely avoid an external scar. Next, a customized silicone implant is slid through the incision and carefully guided into place beside the jawbone.

With non-surgical chin augmentation, there is no need for incisions, anesthesia, downtime or discomfort. The doctor uses a variety of facial fillers to resculpt the area for a more appropriate chin appearance. Results with fillers such as Voluma can last up to one year, with the outcome being reversible if the patient is not satisfied.

Francine M.

"I had a vertical restore at age 65 with Dr Amir Karam. It has been a little over a year and I am delighted with the results. Some of my friends have not even noticed - I just look rested. Dr Karam will provide you with all the information and supplements that you need to make the procedure and the recovery time as comfortable as possible. I usually bruise very easily but with the supplements that were given to me prior to my procedure and afterwards, my bruises were gone within a week."

"I highly recommend Dr. Karam and would go back to him for anything I might want done in the future. I totally trust his approach and recommendations. You won't be disappointed!"

"I'm one month out from a Vertical Restore with Dr Karam. Dr Karam is an incredibly talented Surgeon. I can barely see my scars already. I also did a laser peel, within 8 days I was wearing makeup and admiring my new jawline and neck. I'm 65 this month and so happy I chose him. He is the best there is. His staff are fun, caring and kind. They made my entire experience so easy. I would not hesitate or even think about going anywhere else. Check out his Instagram account. He does all his content himself. Extremely informative, with many before and after photos. I decided on Dr Karam after researching his Instagram and had made my decision before we had even met."

Janice S.

"Dr Karam is a great surgeon, a true artist and a wonderful human being. He has done 2 procedures on me over the last 3 years. Both with excellent results. His fat transfer and his lip lift technique are extraordinary. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best."
