Is chin augmentation always done under general anesthesia? I'm afraid of having general anesthesia. Is chin augmentation always done with a general, or can it be done with sedation and a local? .

In brief: Chin Aug Anesthesia

Chin augmentation is an outpatient procedure typically done in the plastic surgeon’s office or in a surgery center. It is usually done under local anesthesia with oral sedation or intravenous sedation, but can be done under general anesthesia if requested.

In brief: Chin

Chin augmentation with a chin implant can be done with local and/or local with sedation.
When done alone it's quite rare to need general anesthesia. Augmentation using a sliding genioplasty technique involves making bone cuts in the chin bone. This is rarely done with just loca anesthesia.
