CHIN IMPLANT SURGERY – Reshape the chin to improve the harmony of the facial features, surgery is “custom tailored” to meet individual patient desires. Chin Implant Surgery – The chin is one of the important anatomic landmarks of the face. A strong chin profile typically is considered to be a very attractive physical feature. Many patients are bothered by a retruded or “underdeveloped” chin which detracts from the overall appearance and harmony of their facial features. Most patients who have concerns related to the appearance of their chin can be treated successfully with the use of modern “chin implants.” Chin implants are devices fabricated from silicone rubber. They typically can be inserted through either an intraoral (inside the mouth) incision or through a small incision on the undersurface of the chin. Chin implants come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes so that the patient can achieve the profile they desire.

This procedure is performed under anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Patients can return to work and most daily activities within just a few days after insertion of the chin implant. While there are risks associated with chin implant surgery (as with all surgical procedures), the overwhelming majority of patients tolerate this procedure well, have good results and do not experience any complications or side effects. Chin implant surgery is suitable both for men and women. Sometimes, chin implant surgery is performed in conjunction with other procedures such as rhinoplasty (nose job) or cervicofacial rhytidectomy (face-lift).
