Chin Augmentation Surgery in Albany, NY

Add shape and balance to a soft or underdeveloped chin with a simple chin implant procedure. A properly performed chin augmentation can make a world of difference to men and women with underdeveloped chins and/or jawlines. For many of Dr. DeLuca’s patients, adding shape and size to a “weak” and/or receding chin, also known as microgenia, not only enhances the profile and aesthetic attractiveness of their face, but also often leads to a marked increase in confidence and self-esteem.

Chin Augmentation Example (Male & Female)

Are You a Good Candidate for a Chin Implant?

The specific benefits of chin augmentation include:

  • Improve the balance of your profile
  • Correct a “weak” chin
  • Create a stronger and wider chin
  • Add length to a shallow profile
  • One-time, permanent solution

In some cases, a weak chin may not be the only contributing factor to facial imbalance. Other facial features like a large or uneven nose or flabby, loose skin in the mid-to-lower face may also be contributing to facial imbalance. In these cases, a chin implant is often combined with a rhinoplasty or a neck lift procedure to achieve a more balanced and attractive appearance.

Unlike temporary facial fillers like Juvederm or Sculptura, chin implant surgery is a one-time, permanent solution.


Chin Implant Cost and Recovery Time

When chin augmentation is performed as a single procedure, the cost can range between $2,000–$4,000, depending on the complexity of your case. When combined with rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty, and/or other cosmetic procedures, the cost is significantly diminished when compared to the cost of each procedure alone. This is because you only pay for the anesthesia and surgery center fees once.

In terms of recovery time, most patients feel comfortable returning to work and other regular daily activities within five to seven days of surgery. Residual swelling is generally all cleared up within three to four months.



I want to express how much I appreciate the wonderful work of Dr. DeLuca. He is professional and has improved my self confidence and has taken such good care of me, over and beyond the call of duty. Dr. DeLuca strives to ensure your satisfaction and performs superior work that looks natural and healthy – not fake and plasterized. Over the years, he has taken great care to detail as well. All should know about Dr. DeLuca as he is the plastic surgeon to go to for not only medical procedures pertaining to medically necessary plastic surgeries but also plastic surgery of a cosmetic nature if someone wants to look and feel better about themselves.

Choosing Your Surgeon

Selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform your chin augmentation surgery is crucial. Though this procedure is considered a relatively easy operation, and it is one that produces striking results, it is nonetheless quite important to select a qualified surgeon. Dr. DeLuca has been performing chin implant surgery for 28 years and counting. With an artist’s eye and physician’s understanding of facial aesthetics, he knows how to adjust specific features to achieve optimal symmetry, balance, and proportion. In fact, Dr. DeLuca has performed over 1,500 facial surgeries. He maintains a complication/correction rate that is far below the national average.


The Importance of Postoperative Care

Dr. DeLuca takes pride in the continuing care he provides to every patient. During the weeks and months following your chin augmentation surgery, regular appointments will be scheduled with Dr. DeLuca to monitor your recovery and results. His recovery program and 24/7 availability optimize healing, minimize post-operative complications, and enable you to enjoy your newfound look sooner rather than later.
