Chin Implants

People often underestimate the impact that a well projected chin has on facial beauty. In fact, the chin is an integral part of an attractive face. Some of the traits of facial beauty include high cheek bones and a long, triangular appearance to the lower face. A well-defined chin can help achieve this appearance.

A lack of chin projection can make the nose look larger and the neck look more saggy and less defined. A projected chin also conveys confidence and strength.

The chin implant procedure entails a small, well-camouflaged incision on the undersurface of the chin. The implant is then placed along the inferior border of the chin and is secured in place with a simple suture.

Candidates for a Chin Implant

A good candidate for a chin implant is someone who has a lack of chin projection with a weak chin or jawline, an over-projected nose, and a saggy neck.

Chin Implant Procedure

The procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes and entails a small, well-camouflaged incision on the undersurface of the chin. The implant is then placed along the inferior border of the chin and is secured in place with a simple suture.

Anesthesia Options

The chin implant can be done under local anesthetic, IV sedation, or general anesthetic. The simplest option is local anesthetic. There are different types of chin implants. Dr. Miller will discuss the pros and cons of each option during your consultation.

Recovery

Swelling and bruising typically resolve after 3-5 days. Healing time is largely dependent on other procedures that may have been performed. The patient may experience mild numbness of the lip which typically resolves. Pain is usually well controlled with oral pain medications.

A chin implant is a fantastic option when considering cosmetic surgery on the face or neck.
