Procedures We Offer: Chin Implant

Chin implants add volume to the chin and provide symmetry to the face or a more defined contour to the chin. Visible scarring is minimal after the procedure because our experts make the incision either inside the mouth or under the chin.

Chin Implants: What To Expect

Our expert team will provide anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the surgery. The surgeon will insert the chin implant through an incision inside the mouth or under the chin, leaving little to no visible scar. These removable implants are pliable and come in a variety of shapes and sizes to ensure a custom fit for each patient.

After the Procedure

Your surgeon will place bandages on the surgery area immediately after the procedure and provide you with care instructions, which may include:

  • Keeping your head elevated to reduce swelling
  • Applying cold compresses
  • Taking prescribed pain medication
  • Avoiding chewing for a few days after the procedure

Most people feel a tight sensation around the chin after surgery that will subside in one to two weeks, when the skin has adjusted to the implant.
