Candidates for Chin Implants

The best candidates for chin implants are people with weak or receding chins. Chin augmentation can improve the appearance of the neckline, enhance definition of the jaw and greatly enhance your side profile.

Chin implants can be combined with other facial procedures, like lip augmentation or a facelift,when indicated. Fat transfer to the face can also be combined with chin augmentation.

Your Chin Augmentation Procedure

Having any facial enhancement procedure is a highly personal decision. Dr. Andan offers complimentary consultations to help ensure that each person interested in getting chin implants has the opportunity to have all of his or her questions answered. According to the dimensions of your face and chin, Dr. Andan will pick an implant size that optimizes your results.

Chin augmentation begins with an incision that is made either inside the mouth or underneath the chin. Through this incision, Dr. Andan will prepare a pocket for the implant in front of the chin bone and underneath the muscle. He will then place the chin implant in the pocket and secure it in place. The incision is closed with dissolvable sutures that allow for optimal scar healing.

Chin augmentation may be performed using local or general anesthesia depending on the individual and whether you are combining chin augmentation with any additional procedures. Chin enhancement is performed on an outpatient basis and you may return home immediately following your surgery.

Your Recovery & Results

The night following your chin implant procedure, you will receive a phone call from our office to make sure you are doing well and answer any questions you may have about your recovery.

While the exact recovery process varies for each individual, it’s normal to experience some swelling, bruising and mild discomfort. Most people return to work a few days after their surgery.

After a chin augmentation, you should notice a better-defined chin that brings your facial features into proportion and flatters the contours of your face.
