A chin implant or chin augmentation is a fairly common procedure and often accompanies rhinoplasty, a facelift, or cheek implants. It may dramatically improve your facial definition and profile.
Chin augmentation or chin implant surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour and involves the insertion of solid, silicone material that may come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Typically placed through an incision made inside the lower lip or through a natural skin crease located beneath the chin. You doctor will select the implant that will best enhance your appearance and insert it into a pocket created over the front of the jawbone.
The ideal candidate is a non-smoking, healthy adult. This person may typically have a “weak chin” and look to create more definition in their face line.
