A chin implant can help to strengthen an otherwise weak or retracted chin. This can help to balance the overall facial appearance and harmony. Chin implants can also help to improve the balance of the nose with the rest of the face as an underdeveloped or weak chin can make the nose look larger. Increasing the size of the chin can also improve the appearance of the neck and jawline by strengthening the profile.
Chin Implant Surgery
A chin implant will be custom-sized and the shape tailored to your bone structure and facial needs. The implant can be placed either through a small incision under the chin or through an incision inside the lower lip. This procedure can be performed in the office or in an operating room and patients may receive some sedation or general anesthesia depending on their comfort level and preferences. The results are seen immediately but will continue to improve as healing takes place.
