If you feel like you have a weak or recessed chin, there is hope. Chin implants can help you bring balance to your facial features. This permanent solution can help you boost your self-esteem and improve your overall quality of life.

What to Expect with Chin Implant Surgery

The surgery is performed under local anesthesia. The opening is quite small and can be made either in the mouth or underneath the chin. This allows us to make enough space for your implant and then precisely place it around your chin bone. There is very little downtime for this plastic surgery – about seven to ten days of recovery time, after which the surgery is imperceptible.

Chin implants can vary greatly in size and shape, meaning this procedure can be customized to fit your needs. The goal is to get you to your goals in a natural-looking way. Your chin implant will not be noticeable. It will both look and feel very natural. Results with chin implant surgery are permanent.

Who is a Good Candidate for this Surgery?

There are many reasons that this surgery is beneficial. You may be the perfect candidate if any of the following situations apply to you:

  • You feel you have a weak chin
  • You feel your chin is out of proportion with the rest of your face
  • Your chin and/or neck lack definition
  • You have a small chin bone that gives you the appearance of a double chin

An ideal candidate for this surgery will be healthy overall. Both men and women can benefit from this procedure. It is important to go into the surgery with realistic expectations.
