Chin and Facial Implants

Chin Implants or Reduction

Looking in the mirror, many patients may be concerned that their face is ‘off-balance’ and concentrate on the size and shape of their nose, their cheeks, or their ears. In fact, it is your chin that plays a big part in your overall facial harmony. Reshaping the chin with a chin augmentation procedure can improve facial balance, both from the front and the profile.

Am I a Candidate for Chin Augmentation?

If you feel you have a ‘weak’ or under-projected chin, you may be a candidate for a chin augmentation with implants. A ‘weak’ chin is characterized by the jaw bone lying behind the lips, and therefore the lower lip becomes more prominent than the chin. You can best determine if you have a ‘weak’ or under-projected chin from the profile of your face. A ’weak’ chin can leave the jawline looking less defined and in some cases give the illusion of an older-looking neck.

During your consultation with board-certified New Jersey plastic surgeon, Dr. Franckle, we will take photos of your profile and discuss if you are an ideal candidate for a chin augmentation procedure.

Chin Augmentation and Rhinoplasty

Surgeons who specialize in rhinoplasty, like Dr. Franckle, often suggest a chin augmentation to enhance the results of a rhinoplasty (nose surgery) procedure. Many times the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the professed size of the nose. A chin augmentation, in addition to a rhinoplasty, can help create facial balance and harmony. Fortunately, both procedures can easily be performed within the same surgery.

Additional Facial Implants – Cheek Implants

Similar to chin augmentation, some patients require a more prominent cheek contour in order to accomplish facial balance. If you are experiencing reduced cheek tissue or a reduced cheekbone contour due to genetics or as a result of aging, you may be a candidate for a cheek implant procedure.

Under local anesthesia, a small incision is placed under the upper lip, in the lower eyelid or in the hairline, and a pre-shaped implant is placed next to the cheekbone. Initial swelling occurs and generally dissipates over the first month or two. Discomfort is mild and easily controlled with oral medications.

If you are looking for enhanced cheek contours without the use of implants, cheek enhancement using Sculptra Aesthetic or fat-grafting are also options to consider.

The Chin Augmentation Procedure

A chin augmentation reshapes the chin by enhancement with an implant. Under local anesthesia, an incision is carefully placed inside the lower lip (no scars approach) or within the natural crease under the chin (because of the exact placement of the incision, a scar is barely visible). Dr. Franckle then carefully stretches the tissue around the chin, creating a space for the implant to be inserted. The implant adheres to the jawbone and looks and feels like a real chin. Submental liposuction may be suggested in conjunction with the chin augmentation procedure to further the result of a well-defined chin profile and distinct jawline.

Recovery after a Chin Augmentation

You will be wrapped in a dressing for the first 48 hours after surgery. This dressing should be undisturbed, and chewing will probably be limited. A liquid or soft food diet is recommended for the first couple of days post-operative. Discomfort is mild and can easily be controlled with oral medication. A stretched, tight sensation around the chin is common after the surgery, but this usually subsides within a few days. Sutures are removed several days after surgery.

Cost

The cost for a facial implant procedure varies from patient to patient. Generally speaking, a facial implant procedure cost will range from $3,000-$5,000*.

*Please note that the Virtua Center for Surgery, where your procedure will take place, bills their anesthesia and facility fees separately. The prices listed above may or may not include these fees.

Payment Options for Chin Implants

  • Cash or Check: For those who prefer direct payment methods, we accept personal checks, cashier’s checks, and cash. These straightforward options allow you to cover your procedure costs directly.
  • Credit Cards: We accept all major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. This option offers the convenience of using your existing credit lines to finance your surgery.
  • Flexible Payment Plans: More info below.

Financing Options for Chin Implants

We provide zero-interest financing plans for up to six months. This option allows you to distribute the cost of your chin implants over a six-month period without incurring additional interest, making it easier to fit the procedure into your budget.

For those needing a longer repayment period, we offer extended financing plans with competitive interest rates for up to 60 months. These plans enable you to break down the cost of your procedure into affordable monthly payments, ensuring that the expense remains manageable over time. Approval for these plans depends on your credit history.

We collaborate with established financial institutions such as CareCredit® and Alphaeon Credit. These trusted partners offer a range of financing plans designed to suit your specific financial needs, allowing you to proceed with your chin implant procedure without undue financial strain.

How to Prepare

In preparation for your chin augmentation, Dr. Franckle may advise you do the following:

  • Take a medical evaluation or get lab tested
  • Avoid smoking
  • Take certain medications or adjust the medications you are currently taking
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, or herbal supplements that may increase bleeding

In addition to Dr. Franckle’s preparation recommendations, you’ll also want to make practical arrangements for your recovery, including contacting a friend or family member who can drive you to and from your procedure. Some further suggestions for properly preparing for the aftermath of your surgery include gathering the following care items:

  • Prescription drugs and antibiotics
  • Over the counter pain medications
  • Loose-fitting clothes
  • Gauze bandages

Aside from stocking up on supplies, you’ll want to avoid intaking any alcohol for at least 48 hours prior to your surgery. On the night before your chin augmentation, you should plan to get plenty of rest. To learn more about how to adequately prepare for your chin and facial implant procedure, contact Dr. Franckle.

Gynecomastia is the medical term for enlarged breasts in men. Approximately 15 million males in the United States experience gynecomastia at any given time. It can be found in either one breast or both, and it can sometimes cause a noticeable imbalance in the size of the breasts. Though it is often a painless condition, men who suffer from it may experience feelings of embarrassment or shyness.⁠

Body after Baby🤱🏼❗️⁠

Childbirth is a truly miraculous event, and you shouldn’t have to settle for a physique you find unsatisfying. With the Mommy Makeover, South Jersey and surrounding area moms can fight the physical effects of motherhood and shift their focus to the more magical elements of parenthood. ⁠

As with any invasive procedure, it is absolutely paramount that the patient be otherwise healthy before undergoing surgery. Dr. Franckle also advises that patients stop smoking prior to surgery to promote proper healing and recovery. It is also necessary to allow your body ample time to heal after childbirth before undergoing major surgery.⁠

❗️FALSE❗️⁠


Fact: A facelift can reposition tissue and address the neck area in ways fillers cannot. However, fillers are excellent for adding lost facial volume and giving a boost to your skin. They’re a great short-term, nonsurgical way to fight the signs of aging. If you’re unsure about committing to a facelift, give facial fillers a try.⁠
