About Chin Augmentation
Chin Augmentation is also known as Chin Implant Surgery, Genioplasty, or Mentoplasty.
Disproportionate facial features can emphasize the size of the nose or your overall appearance.
Those who aren’t satisfied with an asymmetrical, longer or weak, recessed chin can enhance the lower contours of their face with chin augmentation. Once you’ve decided that chin augmentation surgery is the best fit to properly address your concerns and personal goals, your surgeon and the medical team will have a conversation with you about your recovery during the pre-op appointment and on the day of your surgery.
The recovery period after chin augmentation is vital to achieving your long-term aesthetic goals. And if you are not sure where to start, ContourMD® can help. The design of our chin augmentation compression garments are tailored to compliment your aesthetic needs and facial anatomy. ContourMD© provides high-quality chin augmentation compression garments that will cater to your individual needs with compassionate comfort, facial contour and soothing relief to the skin.
The Stages of Healing
Learn about the stages of healing and what your body goes through after surgery to understand why the right chin augmentation compression garment is critical to reaching the results you are looking for.
Stage I Garment
1-2 weeks after surgery
The healing process begins immediately after your chin augmentation surgery.
Once the procedure is finished, a compression garment is placed and adjusted to ensure proper fit by the surgeon or someone from the medical team. It is very beneficial to rest, relax, and let your body heal properly after surgery.
A Stage I chin augmentation compression garment promotes healing by lessening the amount of fluid build-up, reducing swelling, and preventing bruising. It can provide stability to the treated areas on your face, while also keeping the surgical site together. This will improve the outcome of the facial contour, and minimize the appearance of scarring. The compression garment will also reduce the risk of infection. During Stage I, you should wear this garment at all times, except when you’re either bathing or in the shower.
Recommended Stage I Garments
Stage II Garment
2-4 weeks after Stage I
Gradually, as you recover you should notice less and less fluid in the tissues.
This is when you will want to switch to Stage II for your chin augmentation compression garments.
A Stage II compression garment will be less bulky, yet equally effective during the recovery process. It will help in keeping optimal compression on the treated area(s). This should improve your comfort level significantly, so you’re able to return to most of your daily activities – with the exception of participating in any vigorous activities. Before your surgery, your plastic surgeon will go through all of this with you, and will also be given detailed post-op instructions. If instructions are followed and your chin augmentation garment is properly worn, there will be noticeable and immediate improvement, but it will take around six months to see your final results. It is crucial to wear your compression garment after surgery to achieve optimal results.

How to Care for Your Compression Garment
In order to ensure our compression technology can perform at its peak, be sure to set a reminder to clean or launder your compression garment every one to two days.
In order to ensure our compression technology can perform at its peak, be sure to set a reminder to clean or launder your compression garment every one to two days. For a longer garment life span and for proper compression maintenance, Variance is recommended by medical professionals for garment cleaning. It is usually recommended to have two facial compression garments for a chin augmentation procedure. This is because the garment needs to be cleaned, and you will also want to get a less bulky garment for Stage II of your chin augmentation recovery.
– There will be less fluid in the tissues as your facial areas heal within a few weeks. This is when you will want to switch to a chin implant compression garment with a more simple appearance to ensure your full recovery.
– Remember to clean or launder your compression garment every one to two days. If you do decide on a second garment, it will also provide a much higher chance that you’ll wear the compression garment as instructed at the required time each day.
– Lastly, there are several different styles of facial garments. These options are provided to cater to each of your individual preferences.

Chin Augmentation Surgery
Chin augmentation surgery usually takes about thirty minutes to an hour or so to perform. It can be done under local or general anesthesia. An incision is created under the chin or inside the mouth in order to insert the implant under the jawbone. Lastly, both bandages and a compression garment are placed after the surgery is completed.
What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation is designed to reshape, correct asymmetry, and enhance a recessed or underdeveloped chin. It can also utilize a more dramatic correction in reducing the size of the chin. Mentoplasty, also referred to as genioplasty is a procedure that reshapes the chin by using an implant for surgical enhancement or reduction surgery on the bone. It can also be be performed in a few other different ways, such as moving the chin forward, moving the chin backwards, side-to-side or with vertical changes.
