This will be decided with Dr. Teitelbaum ahead of time during your consultation based on your goals and physical needs. When augmenting the chin with an implant, Dr. Teitelbaum will make a small incision beneath the chin or within the mouth. This incision will be made very carefully to ensure scarring, if any, is extremely minimal, hidden, and heals to blend into the skin. However, because chin augmentation usually only requires incisions in the mouth, it is often the case that there is no scarring at all.
During fat grafting to increase volume in the chin area, fat will first be harvested from a pre-determined area of the body where there is unwanted fat. Once removed, the fat is cleansed and purified. Dr. Teitelbaum then injects the fat precisely into the chin area to provide your desired volume.
