Chin Augmentation

dr-steven-mobley-salt-lake-cityDr. 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.

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. Dr. Mobley has taught his surgical techniques internationally, has published his innovations in medical journals and textbooks, and is a national authority on Facial Plastic Surgery with a particular emphasis on Chin Augmentation. 

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 as a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon (ABFPRS) and has the experience to work with you to develop the best possible outcome.

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. Some of the reasons for Chin Augmentation surgery include:

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

For many patients with the above concerns, 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.


There are several procedures that can complement chin augmentation. Neck liposuction can help to further define the jawline. A facelift can be a powerful addition to a chin implant, especially for patients in their 50s or older.

Frequently Asked Questions About Chin Augmentation

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 on top of the front of the jaw bone and helps to give a stronger, more refined look to the face. A large variety of implants are available so they can be individualized to your exact anatomy.

To fully understand the costs of cosmetic surgery, you must understand the guiding principles of Dr. Mobley’s medical practice: quality, safety, and respect for costs. Dr. Mobley has not designed the surgical experience to be the lowest bid; rather, he wants you to have an exceptionally high-quality medical experience. If this interests you, please read on.

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.

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. With CareCredit you can take up to 36 months to pay with no interest programs available. When you come in for your consultation we will be more than happy to go over all your financial options with you.

One week is usually ample time for the majority of the recovery. Stitches are removed one week after the operation. You will be given a supportive elastic strap to wear 24 hours a day for the first week following surgery. After the first week, I recommend that you wear the supportive dressing at home and at nights for the following two to three weeks.

Most patients are best served by taking one week off to recover and to wait for removal of the elastic strap.

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.
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.
