Considering Chin Augmentation?
For many men and women, the chin is as important to their overall facial aesthetic as their eyes and nose. In men, a strong chin is vital to a masculine appearance, while many women want a more well-defined chin to help accentuate their neck and jaw line.
Fortunately, a weak chin can easily be improved with a chin implant at one of our Phoenix-area facilities, conveniently located in Sun City, Sun City West, and Wickenburg. These implants are made from a special medical-grade material that looks and feels like natural bone and has proven its durability and safety over many years.
To schedule a consultation with Dr. Justo, contact our friendly team of experts. During your initial consultation, Dr. Justo will explain the chin augmentation procedure to you in detail, and discuss whether you might benefit from combining the procedure with other facial enhancement options, such as neck liposuction or a face or neck lift. Additionally, you will be shown before-and-after photos of actual patients to demonstrate the natural-looking, rejuvenating results that Dr. Justo is consistently able to achieve.
Benefits of Chin Augmentation
Chin augmentation can help create a more balanced profile, which in turn helps improve the contour of the neck. The procedure can also be performed in combination with most other facial surgeries such as eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), face or neck lift, endoscopic brow lift, and laser resurfacing for more comprehensive results.
For individuals who have a weak or receding chin, an augmentation with a chin implant can help. Many patients of our Phoenix-area practice, serving Glendale, Peoria, Surprise, and surrounding communities, have been extremely pleased with their results, and some have shared their stories on our testimonial page.

Chin Augmentation Surgery and Recovery
Dr. Justo performs chin augmentation in our fully accredited and licensed ambulatory surgery center* located in his Sun City West medical office building. Prior to surgery, you will be placed under intravenous sedation, administered by an experienced anesthetist. Dr. Emilio Justo will then make a small incision just under the chin, through which the implant is slipped into place. At this point, the incision will be closed to complete the surgery. A typical chin augmentation takes less than one hour.
You will most likely be able to go home within one hour of surgery, although you will experience some soreness, numbness, and mild discomfort. The swelling and numbness will quickly improve, and you will be able to resume normal activities within one week of surgery. Dr. Justo may advise that you wear a chin brace while you are sleeping.
