About Chin Implants

The chin implants are generally shaped like a chin guard. However there shape varies with the material used in making the implants. The various materials that are used in making chin implants are silicone and GoreTex. Both are high quality materials but the difference is that silicone is non porous and GoreTex is highly porous. The choice of implants will depend on the type of existing strength of the chin.

Once the surgeon will determine the size of implant need for your chin he will then further carve out the implant to fit to your face. The aim is to achieve a strong looking and natural looking jaw line. The plastic surgeon will also be able to demonstrate to you the change the chin implants will make in your face through the computer imaging techniques.

How are Chin Implants Inserted

The chin implants are fitted under the skin in front of the jaw and under the teeth. The chin implant surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure and takes about 45 minutes to one hour to complete.  The incision is made under the chin or inside the mouth (no scarring). The chin implant is then placed under the skin and positioned under the jaw. The implant is then adjusted to match the patient’s expectations.

Once the surgeon is satisfied with the placement the implant will be sutured in with the help of dissolvable sutures.  If the surgery is done from inside the mouth then the sutures will be removed after few days by the surgeon. The scars are unnoticeable and if there is any swelling it will go down in few days and you will see the results to your satisfaction.

Chin implants and Rhinoplasty are often performed together as the part of the same plastic surgery procedure. Chin implants with Rhinoplasty gives the surgeon the flexibility to balance the lower and middle face at the same time. Rhinoplasty will sculpt the nose and improve its functional features also and chin implant improves the chin structure. A combination of Rhinoplasty and Chin implant not only gives the face a balanced appearance and gives it a natural look but also saves up on the recovery time and surgery time.

What is Injectable Chin Augmentation?

The inconspicuous chin plays an important role in defining the face and symmetry. A small chin can make your nose look longer and a broad chin makes the nose appear smaller. Chin augmentation is a plastic and cosmetic surgery procedure that corrects the issues in your chin, brings a harmonious balance to the face and adds definition to the jawline.  Chin augmentation is done in two ways: Surgical chin implants and injectable chin implants.

Injectable chin implants or non-surgical chin augmentation is done using soft tissue fillers to sculpt the chin to a more desired shape. They can be used to soften the skin and even remove structural deficiencies as needed. Commonly used fillers include hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, poly-methyl etc. the choice of filler depends on the effects desired. The entire procedure takes only about 15-20 minutes to complete and the results can last for up to 2 years. Injectable chin augmentation has a distinct advantage over surgical implants such as

  • It can be reversed
  • It is more precise because, unlike surgical implants, fillers can be altered in quantity to give tailored results.
  • There is no sedation or hospitalization required and it has no downtime.

Non-surgical chin augmentation produces very natural-looking results and is done to

  • Increase or improve chin projection
  • Bring about facial symmetry
  • Strengthen and define the chin
  • Add balance to the bottom of the face
  • Contour and define the jawline
  • Soften the cleft chin
  • Change the chin contours to balance the nose structure.
