If your goal is a more defined, stronger chin with better projection, a chin implant offers a natural-looking but significant improvement. Chin implant surgery uses a shaped silicone implant that looks and feels like your natural chin bone. Dr. Langdon often prefers an extended chin implant, which extends to the side of the chin and provides volume to “fill in” the pre-jowl sulcus. Dr. Langdon performs chin implant surgery at the Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery in Guilford, CT.
How Does Chin Implant Surgery Work?
Chin implant surgery usually takes place under local anesthesia with sedation. Dr. Langdon will use a small incision under the chin to place a silicone implant. He will place the implant under the muscle (next to the bone) for the most natural-looking results. This solid medical-grade implant will never leak or wear out and will typically not require adjustments.
Can I Have Chin Implant Surgery With Another Procedure?
You may have a chin implant with other procedures to improve your overall results. Liposuction of the neck and jowls can provide an even more dramatic improvement in contour. than a chin implant alone.
A chin implant can balance or enhance the profile changes from rhinoplasty (nose surgery). It can also improve the results of a neck lift or other procedures to tighten and contour the neck, jawline, and chin areas.
