Chin Implant

Combining a chin implant with a rhinoplasty is a common procedure to achieve facial harmony, however, chin implants can be performed as stand-alone procedures. A chin implant is often incorporated into neck lifts, facelifts, and rhinoplasty surgery if the patient does not have a strong projecting chin. The advantages of an implant are permanent alteration of the chin size, customizable shape and size, and reversibility of the procedure. The procedure can be done under local anesthetic, IV sedation, or general anesthesia. The incision is usually made in the skin under the chin but can be made inside the mouth under the lower lip to avoid external scars. The procedure takes 30-40 minutes. Antibiotics and pain medication are provided. Sutures in the skin are removed 1 week later. Laser treatments are used as needed to help any external scars fade. There are few disadvantages of a chin implant limited to potential infection, temporary chin numbness, and scar problems.
