A strong chin and jawline are defining features that can have a profound effect on facial appearance and your confidence. Specialized implants can enhance the appearance of a chin that is small or recessed, define a weak or hidden jawline, and bring the lower proportions of the face in balance with other facial features.
What are Chin Implants?
There are several surgical and non-surgical methods that can be used to create a stronger, more symmetrical jawline and chin. Chin implants are surgically implanted to enhance the angles, size or projection of facial features, and are typically placed using incisions inside the mouth.
Am I a good candidate for Chin Implants?
Women and men of many ages and circumstances undergo chin implants to attain facial harmony. In addition to having realistic expectations regarding the outcome of the procedure, Dr. Brueck will also discuss with you your reasons for wanting the procedure and your overall health.
What can I expect from Chin Implants?
After swelling and bruising have subsided, you will see a stronger chin that is more defined and symmetrical with your other facial features.
Will People Know I Have Had a Chin Implant Placed?
Dr. Brueck is an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon with a keen eye for facial aesthetics. He takes every care to ensure chin augmentation produces noticeable yet natural-looking results, helping to bring the chin into ideal alignment with surrounding features.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Brueck will carefully evaluate your facial profile and discuss what chin augmentation can do to help you determine if having an implant placed is the best option.
Are There Non-Surgical Alternatives to Chin Implants?
Chin augmentation can be achieved through dermal fillers as well as silicone implants. However, while fillers offer a non-surgical solution, implants are more predictable and long-lasting. If you are unhappy with your chin's size, shape, or definition, Dr. Brueck can discuss your options to help you determine which will best meet your needs.
Can Chin Implants be Combined with Other Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures?
To create ideal symmetry, Dr. Brueck may recommend combining chin augmentation with other facial procedures. Sometimes, a combination of techniques is necessary to produce the most pleasing outcomes.
Common combinations include neck and facelift, eyelid lift, and even rhinoplasty. The best way to learn if a variety of procedures can help you reach your goals is through a one-on-one consultation at our Ft. Myers, Punta Gorda, or Cape Coral office.
Are Chin Implants Permanent?
Yes, chin implants are permanent. Crafted from silicone, chin implants are solid and, once placed, will continue to produce results for years to come.
There is a slight risk of implant shift following placement. However, this risk is significantly reduced when you choose an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Brueck.
Can I Have My Chin Implants Removed?
A chin implant can be removed if it no longer meets your aesthetic goals. However, because chin implants enhance the size and shape of the chin, loose skin may remain following removal.
If loose skin is a concern, facial fat grafting can help to restore features. Facial fat grafting, like chin implants, can last for a lifetime. However, it may require more than one session to achieve optimal results.
How long is the recovery from Chin and Jaw Enhancements
Recovery from a chin implant procedure ranges from one to seven days; however, you’ll be able to be active the day of your procedure. Many patients return to work within a week following this procedure.
