Candidates For a Chin Implant
People who have “weak” or receding chins should consider a chin implant. The implant can help to restore a harmonious balance to the facial profile. Many people will also benefit from liposuction of the neck and jowls, a procedure that can be conveniently performed at the same time.
*Individual Results May Vary
A chin implant provides volume to predictably augment the front and sides of the chin. Anatomic implants are designed to look natural; they are typically made of medical grade silicone rubber, an everlasting and natural-feeling material. The implant should ideally be placed beneath the skin and muscle, immediately on the surface of the jaw bone.
During the procedure, a local anesthetic will be provided, which will completely numb the chin area.
Benefits of a Chin Implant include:
- Improved balance of facial features
- A more graceful and refined neck profile (especially if combined with liposuction of the neck)
- Filling in of pre-jowl sulcus (de-emphasizes jowl prominence)
Most people look fine the day after placement of a chin implant. There will be mild swelling for a few days. Stitches beneath the chin will be removed after one week.
