Chin Implant

Chin augmentation, or genioplasty, is a surgical procedure that places a silicone implant in the shape and size of a defined chin beneath the skin and soft tissue of the jaw. Chin implants create a well-balanced, proportional facial profile, especially for individuals with a small or recessed chin.

Pre and Post Operative Instructions

Chin augmentation is an excellent option for patients looking to correct a recessed or “weak” chin to achieve better facial symmetry. Although there are many types of chin implants, we prefer the soft, natural feeling of silicone implants for virtually all patients. Various chin implant shape options allow the procedure to be tailored to your desired outcome and the proportions of the rest of your facial features.

During your initial consultation, your surgeon will provide a comprehensive exam and discuss your goals to understand if this procedure is correct for you.


Enhance the facial profile by increasing the projection of the lower face 


Sharpen the neck or jawline for a more defined look


Minimize the full or “double” chin effect often caused by a small chin bone


Camouflage early jowl formation for a more youthful appearance 


Lengthen the face by increasing the vertical chin height 


Diminish the appearance of dimpling in the chin


Increased facial symmetry


Create a more natural proportion between chin size and other facial features


Before surgery

A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. You will then be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.

Stop smoking
Fill prescriptions
Stop taking medications & supplements that exacerbate bleeding

Find a family member or friend to bring you home & help you after surgery

During surgery

The surgeon makes a small incision underneath the chin or inside the mouth. This opening will then be used to securely place the implant around the existing chin bone. To close the incisions, your surgeon will use a unique layered suturing technique that minimizes tension to minimize scarring.

After surgery

Soreness and swelling are typical for a few days following chin augmentation surgery. Chin implants typically offer long-lasting results and do not require removal or replacement.

Your surgeon will provide specific instructions for optimal post-operative care, including an advanced scar management protocol after the initial healing period. Your surgical team is always available and will closely monitor your recovery in the weeks and months following surgery.
