Chin and Facial Implants

Chin Implants or Reduction

Looking in the mirror many patients concerned that their face is ‘off-balance’ may 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 implant. 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 the 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 for you 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 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.

Fillers FAQ: How Is the Recovery Process?⁠

Here we go! >>⁠

As a non-invasive procedure, Dr. Franckle will administer the smooth gel treatment via an injection.⁠

Mild bruising, redness, itching, and swelling are normal reactions at the injection site and should subside in 2-4 weeks or less. ⁠

Once the swelling reduces, patients typically start to notice results 2-3 weeks after treatment. ⁠
