In brief: Chin Aug Surg Time

Surgery length in 30 to 45 minutes after the incision is closed, the procedure is done, unless the patient has requested other procedures as well.
However there is significant time for you to fill our paper work, and be released to go home afterwards. https://pacificcenterplasticsurgery.com/procedures/face/chin-augmentation/.

In brief: Chin

Chin implant surgery takes about 30-60 minutes.
You should ask your surgeon for specifics in your case as the timing can vary a bit. Sliding genioplasty chin augmentation takes longer and involves a longer time in the recovery room.

In brief: In

In most patients, this procedure can be done in less than an hour and often in half an hour or so.
It depends on the type of augmentation and the experience of the surgeon.

In brief: I

I suspect the chin augmentation is being done with an implant, not with advancing your mandible (jaw bone).
.. This typically will take about an hour to perform. The time may also vary depending on where the surgery is being done-- surgery center or the surgeons own office. Typically more time involved in the surgery center than office setting.

In brief: There

There are several different methods but i assume you are probably speaking about the most common form of chin augmentation which is completed with a silicone gel treatment.
Liposuction is also commonly performed with this procedure. In this scenario surgery will last about 1 hour plus or minus 30 minutes. Chin augmentation with fillers will take minutes whereas rearrangement of boney structures may take closer to 2 hours.
