Chin Implant

Chin enhancement surgery, or genioplasty, typically involves the placement of an implant beneath the chin to provide a more contoured appearance in the lower facial region (chin, jawline, neck).

If you feel that your chin isn’t prominent enough or that it causes a lack of facial harmony, an augmentation procedure can help to enhance both your looks and confidence. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Huntington Plastic Surgery Institute work with patients to create a customized plan and procedure that will both flatter their natural looks and improve the areas they are unhappy with.

What Are the Benefits of Chin Implant Surgery?

A chin implant in Pasadena improves facial symmetry and contours for those who feel self-conscious about the proportions of their face, particularly if they have a recessed chin. By enhancing the chin in this regard, definition in the jawline and neck is generally improved. The procedure has been widely practiced and is considered to be extremely safe and effective.

A genioplasty can also help to minimize the appearance of a double chin. Overall, chin implant surgery presents a more contoured and defined lower half of the face.

Patient Information

Am I a Good Candidate for a Chin Implant?
Candidates for chin augmentation should be in good health and have realistic expectations about their procedure results. Because every individual’s needs are unique, the results of the surgery will differ from patient to patient. Those interested in getting chin enhancement surgery should also be seeking out the improvements for themselves and not to only please or impress others.
What is the Recovery Process Like?
Following the procedure, patients may experience some swelling and discomfort, all of which can be managed with medication. To ensure proper healing and the best results, patients will need to sleep face-up with their head elevated for at least 1-2 weeks as well as remain on a liquid diet for at least the first few days. Fortunately, most chin implant patients can resume the majority of their daily activities within a week of their procedure.
