The chin is the focal point for the jawline. A recessed or deformed chin can cause the entire facial structure to lack proportion, even creating the appearance of a “double” chin due to an ill-defined jawline.
Chin implants are used to improve chin and jaw structure, resulting in a defined jawline and enhanced facial proportion. During chin implant surgery, a small incision is made underneath the chin or inside the mouth where the implant is inserted. Your surgeon will provide you with the best chin implant methods and options for facial surgeries during your consult.
Recovery time varies among individuals, but patients are expected to reach a full recovery in 3-4 weeks after surgery.
When to consider a chin lift:
• Desire a stronger, more defined jawline
• Correct facial asymmetry or deformities due to injury or congenital conditions
Other cosmetic procedures that may be performed with a chin lift include:
• Neck lift
• Face lift
• Performed under sedation or general anesthesia
• Outpatient procedure
