Chin implants may be used to permanently correct inadequate chin projection, creating more distance between the chin and the neck. The chin implant procedure may be performed as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with a face lift, a neck lift, or a rhinoplasty. You also have the option of placing implants that add lateral width for a stronger jaw, a popular procedure among men.
Dr. Yellin will determine the optimum implant for you, guided by your facial aesthetic desires, during your consultation prior to surgery. The procedure is performed under either local or general anesthesia depending on the clinical circumstance. An incision is made under the chin. The implant is placed into the surgically created pocket and secured. The incisions are then closed, completing the procedure. The final scar is well hidden in a natural crease under the chin.
