Chin Implant Surgery
Redefine Your Jawline With a Chin Implant
The chin is one of the face’s defining features. It can be strong, extending into the jawline, petite, or slightly pointed. The chin can also be a source of embarrassment for those whose genetics have given them a receding or “weak” chin.
Chin implants can balance this important aspect of the face with the jawline, mouth, and nose.
What Is a Chin Implant?
A chin implant is a pre-formed solid silicone implant placed on top of your chin bone to increase its projection. This helps provide balance and harmony to the facial contour.
What Are the Benefits of a Chin Implant?
Men and women choose chin implants because they:
- Add projection
- Balance facial features and proportions
- Define the face
- Soften feminine features or enhance masculine ones
Should I Get a Chin Implant?
You may be a candidate for a chin implant if you are healthy with no medical conditions that impair healing. Candidates for chin implant surgery often have weak or receded chins that distort their facial profile.
