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.

How Is a Chin Implant Placed?

Chin enhancement surgery is typically an outpatient procedure that takes about an hour to perform.

Dr. Sadeghi will make an incision inside the bottom lip or beneath the chin. The selected implant is inserted and attached to the jawbone using tiny screws. This prevents the implant from moving around after insertion.

Incisions are closed.

Are Chin Implants Made in Different Shapes?

There are various types of chin implants in both size and shape. The selected implant will fit seamlessly against your natural chin and jawbone while providing you with the desired projection.

How Much Is a Chin Implant in New Orleans, LA?

The cost of your chin implant in New Orleans, Louisiana, will vary depending on the selected implant and any plastic surgery procedures being performed simultaneously. Often, patients choose to combine their chin implant with other facial enhancement surgeries, such as facelift surgery, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), or facial fat grafting.

On average, the cost of a chin implant is around $2,364; however, this will vary once all expenses are factored in. Dr. Sadeghi and his team at the Sadeghi Center for Plastic Surgery will provide you with a more accurate cost estimate during your consultation.

What to Expect After a Chin Implant

Patients will notice their more shapely chin appear as swelling and bruising subside. Most patients are fully recovered after seven days.

It is recommended to sleep in an upright position and eat soft foods during this time.

Any discomfort should be mild and can be remedied with over-the-counter pain medication.

Are Chin Implants Permanent?

Chin implants are designed to be long lasting and may even be permanent. Your chin implant can be removed should you choose that it is no longer for you; however, additional dermal fillers, fat grafting, or facelift surgery may be necessary if the skin is stretched or loose.
