The jawline is a principal feature that, together with the nose, defines the facial shape and profile. Genioplasty, or chin implants, will restore a weak or recessed chin, improving the overall shape of the face.
Chin implants can:
Improve contours of chin, neck, jawline
Create a natural, attractive balance between facial features
We pride ourselves on our ability to provide natural and long lasting results. Every procedure is tailored to you to provide a look that matches your face, body and desires.
During + After your Surgery
Most are performed under general anesthesia.
Duration of Surgery
Approximately 1.5 hours
Patients go home same day. A bandage or small dressing may cover the chin for up to 10 days.
Length of Recovery
Recovery is usually quick and discomfort is minimal. Food should be liquid-to-soft for a week to avoid excessive chewing during the healing process. Patients can return to most daily activities within 7 days while strenuous activities should resume within 3 to 4 weeks.
Expected by 3 months
Patients are given both painkillers and antibiotics (generally pain killers are only needed in the first few days) Patients should also use an oral rinse once per day.

Chin implants or chin surgery in which we move the bone itself to augment the chin area can be done. Both require plates and screws to hold things in position and the risk of rejection of the implant is a very low risk, infection however can happen (less than 1%) and that may necessitate implant removal. Implants last a lifetime!
Chin implants can improve the appearance of the jaw line in the front and in profile and in some instances can help the appearance of jowls. There are also other jaw implants that can be used to further improve or enhance the remainder of the jawline
