Facial Implants – What To Know About Chin Augmentation

Chin implants are one of the most permanent solutions to a weak or disproportional chin. If you’re considering your chin augmentation options, then you’ve likely come across chin implants. The best way to determine your best options is by consulting a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Rosenberg and discussing your preferences. Here’s what to know about chin augmentation with implants and what you can expect.

Are Facial Implants Right For You?

If you’re considering facial implants, you’ll need to be sure it’s the right choice. Chin implants are typically based around a couple important factors. These are:

1. Facial Shape

Chin implants are a good option for patients who have a weak chin that doesn’t match the rest of the facial proportions. A chin implant can’t correct an underbite, however, or jaw problems that contribute to a weak chin. A plastic surgeon can determine whether chin implants are able to achieve your goals.

2. Combination Procedures

Chin augmentation with implants is most commonly combined with rhinoplasty – this combination approach is the most transformative way to achieve a more balanced facial profile. It’s possible that Dr. Rosenberg will recommend a rhinoplasty along with chin augmentation if it’s the best solution for your goals. You may also benefit from other facial implants like those for the cheeks or jaw.

Best Candidates for Chin Augmentation

Patients with good health and realistic expectations about facial plastic surgery are good candidates for facial implants. Dr. Rosenberg will take time to discuss your goals and determine whether chin augmentation can achieve what you’re describing. If you’re not a good candidate for surgical chin augmentation, he can help you explore non-surgical alternatives like fillers. Although fillers are not permanent, they can help you explore your cosmetic goals without the risks of surgery.

The Chin Augmentation Procedure

The procedure for chin implants is relatively easy and quick. In most cases, the incision is only a few millimeters in size. Once the implant is inserted and your ideal results are achieved, the incisions will be made ready for your recovery and you can return home. Chin implants typically last for many years and surgery has a very good outcome when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon.
