The chin is an integral part to facial symmetry. In individuals who have a weak chin, it can lead to an asymmetrical or uneven profile. This leads to a poorly defined neck and even impacts the way your nose looks on profile, which looks larger than it is in individuals with weak chins. Chin augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of your chin, creating an overall more aesthetically pleasing profile and facial symmetry. As a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Walker has the skill and expertise to create the beautiful results you are looking for. Walker MD is 19 minutes from Downtown Atlanta and 12 minutes from Brookhaven.

How much does a chin augmentation cost?
During your consultation, Dr. Walker will discuss your treatment goals and his team will go over pricing with you, which will depend on the type of augmentation procedure chosen as well as other procedures you may have performed in conjunction. Always keep in mind that rather than seeking the best deal, you also should consider credentials and training, all of which impact procedure safety and outcome.
Does insurance cover the cost of chin augmentation?
Chin enhancement, whether surgical or non-surgical, is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance.
Can chin augmentation be combined with other facial procedures?
Chin augmentation is often combined with other facial procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, including facial fillers, fat grafting, jawline contouring, neck and jawline liposuction, rhinoplasty, or facelift.
Are there non-surgical alternatives to chin implants?
Chin augmentation can be performed surgically (chin implant or fat grafting) or non-surgically (filler injection). Dr. Walker performs many non-surgical treatments at WalkerMD. One of the most popular treatments is his signature jawline contouring procedure using Radiesse®, Juvéderm Voluma®, or Restylane Lyft® All are FDA-approved fillers for various purposes and can be used for volume restoration in certain areas of the face that we lose through aging, strenuous exercise, or genetic predisposition. The filler gets skillfully placed by Dr. Walker to accentuate your jawline/chin complex for a beautiful and natural contour. Since each client is different and requires various amounts of augmentation, the treatment is custom-tailored your needs and goals.
Are chin implants and chin fillers just for women?
Chin enhancement, whether surgical or non-surgical, is an extremely popular procedure for both men and women. Some men are concerned if it impacts their shaving, which it doesn’t except during the time of healing. For the first week, surgical dressing and sutures will need to be shaved around. After that, regular beard trimming and facial hygiene including shaving of facial hair may be resumed. For the first few weeks after surgery, caution is advised during shaving. Do not apply excessive pressure over the implant to avoid misplacement. Once cleared by Dr. Walker, men may resume their regular facial hair trimming with the usual pressure.
