Chin implants provide balance to the facial features and improve the profile. By placing a biocompatible implant in the lower jaw, patients can create a stronger chin and even lengthen the entire face. The chin implant procedure is ideal for patients with a weak chin and/or prominent nose.
The chin implant procedure takes less than an hour to perform and can be done under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. During the procedure, an incision is made inside the mouth or under the chin. A pocket is created where the implant is positioned in front of the jawbone and secured with sutures. Patients can return home the same day.
