About Chin Augmentation
A weak or receding chin can make the rest of a person’s face look out of proportion. The nose may appear larger and the neckline may appear too loose. A chin augmentation performed by Dr. Petroff can correct this defect by giving balance to the facial features. This is also a popular procedure for Lake Oswego, OR men and women who wish to have a stronger chin and better-defined jawline. Dr. Petroff has been in practice for more than 25 years and has assisted many patients in choosing the right size and shape of their implant to create a balanced, pleasing appearance. Most implants are made of safe silicone and each implant is customized for every patient. To schedule a consultation and start the process, patients can contact Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa today.
The best candidates for chin augmentation surgery:
- Have a weak or short chin due to genetics or trauma
- Have a nose that appears too large
- Want a more proportionate look for facial balance
- Want a more distinctive profile
Chin injections can also be used to strengthen the jawline and balance out the facial features. While the results are temporary, injectable dermal fillers could be a good option for patients who are not wanting to undergo more invasive implant procedures or those simply desiring a more subtle look. Dr. Petroff and his team can meet with each patient and decide on the best injectable that will safely deliver the results they seek. Chin injections can yield visible improvement and results for several months or even years depending on the case.

"I can't say enough good things about Dr. Petroff or his staff! I got a rhinoplasty done at the Petroff Center 6 months ago and I'm absolutely obsessed with how my nose turned out. The entire process was so much easier than I thought it was going to be and I know that's because of the expertise of Dr. Petroff! I barely bruised, had minimal swelling and healed extremely fast. He somehow managed to give me everything I wanted out of my surgery and more. He has the absolute perfect eye for rhinoplasty, I constantly get compliments about how natural my nose looks now, and how it looks like the nose I should've had! Not only that his staff is amazing, warm, welcoming and extremely helpful! I can't even begin to describe how absolutely beautiful and happy I feel because of this surgery and I'm so so glad I chose The Petroff Center. If you're wanting a rhinoplasty; especially in Oregon there's just no one better than Dr. Petroff!!"- S.R. / Yelp / Dec 18, 2017
"I've had multiple treatments of lip injections from Dr. Petroff and I can honestly say he is the only doctor I will trust in the Portland area. He listened to my request and concerns on how I liked the shape of my lips. He is very knowledgeable on what types of injectables I would benefit from and what injections may not work the best for me. The entire staff is very friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this facility."- T.R. / Yelp / Dec 09, 2017

What to Expect
A patient will be under general anesthesia during chin surgery, which is performed as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility. Our plastic surgeon will make a small incision on either inside of the mouth or under the chin. An implant made of biocompatible, medical-grade materials will be placed carefully into the incision. After the implant is placed, the incision will be closed. If the incision was made in the mouth, the patient will have no visible scarring. For incisions under the chin, the scar will be carefully placed to avoid detection. The entire surgery generally takes around 1 hour to complete.
Right after chin augmentation surgery, a dressing will be applied to the chin where it should remain for 3 – 4 days. Patients can expect some pain, tenderness, and swelling. Also, patients can experience a tight, stretched sensation following surgery. These symptoms usually go away in about one week. After the swelling subsides in a few weeks, patients will be able to see the results of their surgery. The implant will look and feel like normal bone. More importantly, the implant will have the consistency of the patient’s natural tissue to make it appear more natural.

Define Your Profile
A short chin not only makes your profile look weak, but it can also make your nose appear to be large and disproportionate. While some patients think they need a nose job, they may only need chin augmentation surgery to achieve full facial harmony and symmetry.
