A chin implant or chin augmentation is a way to improve chin definition. Changing the size and shape of the chin through chin plastic surgery can improve your overall facial appearance by bringing your facial features into a more harmonious balance. It can also create the illusion of a smaller and more proportionate nose without actually undergoing rhinoplasty.

Chin implants are also considered useful procedures for reversing signs of aging around the chin and neck areas which tend to be more pronounced on those born with a smaller chin. Chin implant surgery may also mitigate the “double chin syndrome” and even eliminate the need for double chin reduction surgery or chin tuck surgery.

Since the chin is such an important facial feature, chin reshaping, it’s been found, often helps people feel younger and stronger. A positive effect on self-confidence is reported as well. The silicone chin implant is easily placed or even removed. Cleft chin surgery and in certain cases, a “custom” chin implant, are available according to patient needs. A square jaw implant is yet another option.

While chin implant surgery can be accomplished using local anesthesia it is typically done under general anesthesia. Recovery time varies but is usually less than major plastic surgery.

Double chin surgery or “chin lift surgery” as well as chin tuck surgery are most effective for achieving a noticeable improvement.
