Chin Implant

The chin may be altered by using a chin implant, a synthetic device which is inserted under the soft tissue of the chin (usually through a small opening under the chin). This procedure may be done separately or in combination with a rhinoplasty or other facial surgery. Although most chin surgery is done to give the appearance of a "stronger" chin, the chin may also be lengthened, shortened, or reduced.

Pertinent Information:

  • Anesthesia - general or IV sedation
  • Setting - outpatient
  • Recovery - return to normal activities in 10-14 days
  • Scars - depend upon the procedure. Under chin, inside mouth. Usually become almost invisible with time.
