Chin Augmentations in Utah

Dr. Mobley is a national authority on Facial Plastic Surgery and is one of a few surgeons in the country selected to teach cosmetic chin implant surgery to other surgeons around the USA and the world. Dr. Mobley also performs 18x as many chin implants as the average plastic surgeon based on national data.

Chin Augmentation can add definition to a jawline, strengthen a weak chin, or tighten a neck wattle.  For some patients, a chin implant can add strength and give a more refined look. Dr. Mobley is an international leader in the technique of “custom chin implant carving”. In this technique Dr. Mobley takes the time to custom carve your chin implant in real-time surgery. The end result is a 100% customized jawline that will more exactly enhance your jawline anatomy and the look you’re seeking to achieve. This attention to detail is what sets Dr. Mobley apart from many other plastic surgeons.

When choosing a Utah Chin Augmentation surgeon, experience is key.  The chin and neck are the facial areas where surgeons have to be most knowledgeable about the anatomy (such as bones, nerves, and muscles of the jaw and neck area) and what can be realistically achieved. He is a well-known national authority on Facial Plastic Surgery with a particular emphasis on Chin Augmentation. Having perfected his surgical techniques he has been an invited lecturer to teach other surgeons internationally as well has having his innovations published in medical journals and textbooks.

He is one of 6 national teachers of cosmetic facial implant surgery and acts as an ongoing consultant to the Implantech Corporation teaching his implant techniques to surgeons from around the U.S. and around the world.  Dr. Mobley is double board-certified both as a head and neck surgeon (ABOto) and a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon (ABFPRS). This gives our patients confidence in knowing they have chosen the most qualified, experienced surgeon for the best possible outcome.  

A chin implant can be a powerful cosmetic operation in that chin augmentation is one of the best “bangs” for one’s dollar. The procedure itself can be performed in the office (keeping costs lower) but, at the same time, the addition of a cosmetic chin implant to the jawline can dramatically and positively improve the natural appearance of the neck and jawline for both men and women. Chin augmentation recovery time averages 7-10 days for most patients.

SHOULD I CONSIDER A CHIN AUGMENTATION?

As we get older, certain changes occur in the jaw and neck area. You may be bothered by a loss of definition of the jaw-line, a weak chin, or a wattle in the neck area. Chin augmentation, sometimes in conjunction with neck liposuction and chin implants, can reverse these effects of age.

COMMON REASONS FOR CHIN AUGMENTATION:

  • Loose skin
  • Loss of definition
  • Weak chin or jawline
  • Early jowls forming along the chin and jawline

DR. MOBLEY WILL BUILD A CURATED PLAN FOR YOUR SURGERY

During your consultation with Dr. Mobley, the two of you will come up with the optimal plan to enhance your chin and jaw area while emphasizing a refreshed and natural look. Chin surgery can be combined with other lifting procedures as well as skin resurfacing to provide optimal rejuvenation.

CHIN AUGMENTATION SURGERY IN UTAH

Frequently Asked Questions

Utah Chin Augmentation surgery can usually be performed through a very small incision (about one inch) placed on the underside of the chin where most people have a natural crease in the skin. This incision heals quickly, leaving an almost imperceptible scar (click for image). About half of the patients I see who are seeking neck and chin cosmetic surgery have weak chins. Surprisingly, patients themselves are not aware of this. If you fall into this category, I can place a chin implant through this small incision. The implant is secured to the jaw with sutures that dissolve after a few months. Screws are not needed and are not used. Screws can sometimes cause patients discomfort long-term so Dr. Mobley does not use them. The implant will give the jawline a stronger, more refined look to the face. A large variety of implants are available so they can be individualized to your exact anatomy. Further, Dr. Mobley is an international innovator of “custom-carved” chin implants so that can get an implant that is uniquely customized in shape to your specific jawline.

With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Mobley has designed his practice to give his patients an exceptionally high-quality surgical experience while providing exceptional results. The most important factors he considers when assessing the pricing of cosmetic surgery are: quality, safety and respect for costs. Taking these into account he doesn’t wish to compete with the lowest bidder, rather provide his patients with the highest level of individualized results.

There are three main components that contribute to your final cosmetic surgery fee. The first component is the surgeon’s fee. As this is a medical experience, your final surgeon’s fee can only be determined after a full consultation with Dr. Mobley where he will perform a complete history and physical exam and together you will formulate a treatment plan that best fits your cosmetic goals. Computerized imaging is often used to help better plan your surgery.

Dr. Mobley is a national authority on the surgical procedure of cosmetic chin augmentation. He is a national teacher of the procedure to other surgeons, actively writes, publishes, and lectures on the topic. He has even pioneered several proprietary techniques including his custom artistic carving of implants to give each patient a truly one-of-a-kind final cosmetic jawline result.

Most chin augmentation surgeries can be safely and comfortably performed in the office. Most standard chin augmentations performed in the office O.R. will be around $3500, which covers the surgeon’s fee, cost of the implant, and facility fee. If extensive artistic shaping/carving of the implant is required, this can add another $500-$1000 to the procedure. If you are already in the O.R. having facial surgery, and wish to add-on a chin implant, this fee can vary from $1000 to $3000. Having the procedure performed in a formal operating room under anesthesia will add typically another $750-$1000. You can always find a lower fee, but at Mobley MD we pride ourselves on the fact that Dr. Mobley performs more chin augmentations than any other surgeon in the Intermountain West and is one of just six national teachers of cosmetic chin surgery for the Implantech company. There are no regrets when you choose the best.

After your consultation, you will leave the office with an easy to understand written quote in which we will list the costs of these three components for your individualized surgical plan. Keep in mind that the facility and anesthesia fees are time-based and so may change based on the actual final length of your surgery.

Facelifts can be performed in a few different settings, giving patients choice in accordance with their surgical goals. For most patients they would be most comfortable in our state of the art AAAASF surgical suite (Millcreek Surgical Suite).

Having your procedure performed under IV sedation is often the best of all worlds. Under IV sedation patient discomfort is at a minimum and recovery is usually easier than after general anesthesia. The anesthesia “hangover” feeling as well as severe nausea are often much less following IV sedation. For patients that are somewhat procedure phobic or simply have the feeling that I want to be “knocked out and wake up when I the procedure is done” then we offer full and safe general anesthesia at our surgical facility as well. Rest assured that you will not only be in the talented surgical of Steven Mobley, MD but also with some of the most talented anesthesia professionals in the state of Utah who are specifically trained for the nuances of anesthesia that are important in the specialty of plastic surgery. Both general anesthesia and IV sedation come with the additional cost of intravenous medications and additional staffing is also needed for these procedures.

Some patients may opt to have their procedure performed in the office under mainly local anesthesia. Carefully selected patients who are not “procedure-phobic” can have their procedures performed in the office. We most often combine a safe dose of oral sedatives to go along with the local anesthesia that will be used to numb. Of course the initial injections of anesthesia will come with an expected “pinch and burn” that is common with the medical setting, but Dr. Mobley has developed many techniques to make this at least discomforting as possible.

During your consultation, we will go over the different options for you based on your criteria as a patient, your goals as a patient, and other factors. We look forward to explaining all of this to your more fully during your visit to Mobley MD Facial Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Mobley wants to make cosmetic surgery available to as many people as possible. For that reason we have  partnered with CareCredit to provide lending services. When you come in for your consultation we will be more than happy to go over all your financial options with you.

Following a chin implant most patients would prefer to rest at home for 1-3 days following the operation. After that, if one is not self conscious about some bruising and swelling, most patients feel fine to return to school or work. Stitches are removed after 1 week and most obvious bruising and swelling is subsiding by 2 weeks post-op. It can take 8-12 weeks before the new final jawline shape is seen as there is another layer of swelling that takes several weeks to entirely resolve.

During your consultation, you can review before and after photos of patients who have undergone similar surgery. Also, computer morphing software can be used during the consultation to show you what is realistically achievable from surgery.

Every type of surgery has risks. It’s my ethical responsibility to educate you on these risks so you can make the best possible decision for yourself while weighing these risks against the benefits of surgery. My training helps me to minimize these risks to the best of my ability, but I cannot eliminate them entirely.

Common risks include numbness of chin, red or visible scar, shifting of the implant, and infection of the implant. Since starting practice in 2002, I have only had 1 implant shift after surgery, a few cases of numbness in the lips and chin, and have never had to remove an implant due to infection.

The risks above are the most common ones that I think you should be aware of, but they are not a complete list of all possible risks. When I see you in consultation and we begin to formulate your surgical treatment plan, I’ll review with you not only these common risks but also the less likely complications that may occur.
