Chin augmentation with a chin implant is a procedure that helps patients from the Des Moines area, Davenport, and beyond, improve the proportions of the chin in addition to the rest of the face, particularly in profile. It is used to improve overall facial balance and appearance. Augmentation with a chin implant with Iowa facial plastic surgeon surgeons Dr. Brent Koch and Dr. Cody Koch can help achieve the facial contours you’ve always wanted.
Our doctors can help you achieve a more prominent chin with chin augmentation (mentoplasty). As specialists in facial surgery, they have extensive training and more than 45 years of experience in performing facial procedures.

About Chin Augmentation
Chin augmentation is one of the most satisfying procedures performed in facial plastic surgery. Dramatic improvements can be realized with only a small, subtle change, and patients are generally very gratified. The effect of chin augmentation on facial harmony is the reason chin augmentation is sometimes recommended with rhinoplasty, a facelift or facial liposuction.
Chin augmentation typically produces excellent results, including:
- A stronger chin and balanced profile
- Improved overall facial harmony
- Enhanced neck and jaw line
Chin Augmentation Procedure
Chin implant surgery is a straightforward and proven procedure that our doctors perform on its own or in combination with other facial procedures. During chin augmentation, a carefully sized, medical-grade implant is placed behind the chin muscles through a small incision under the chin. This moves the muscle and overlying skin of the chin forward.
Chin implant surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia in an accredited outpatient surgery center, and takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours to complete.
Meet Our Providers
At Koch & Carlisle, we have assembled a team of three highly skilled, board-certified plastic surgeons—two for the face and one for the breast and body. The result: exceptional plastic surgery results from head to toe for the West Des Moines, IA, area.
After your chin implant surgery, your doctor will place a bandage over the incision site, which will remain in place for a few days. Our chin augmentation patients can return home the day of their procedure, but must wait a few days to a week to resume everyday activities.
The nominal consultation fee covers an extensive, personal consultation with either Dr. Brent Koch or Dr. Cody Koch. Your doctor will spend a great deal of time with you, discussing your goals, concerns, and physical and lifestyle considerations. He will listen intently to what you have to say, and together the two of you will develop the best approach to your treatment. Women and men who schedule their surgery at the time of consultation will have their consultation fee applied toward their procedure.
