Chin Implant​

What is a chin implant?​

A chin implant is designed to bring a harmonious balance to facial features, usually by augmenting a weak chin. By placing a biocompatible implant in the lower jaw, patients can create a stronger chin, and even lengthen the entire face. While many patients use dermal fillers to increase chin size, their results last for only a few months and require frequent touch-ups. In comparison, a chin implant offers permanent results that can be customized to achieve the desired look.​

How the chin implant procedure performed?​

The chin implant procedure takes less than an hour to perform, and is done under local anesthesia with sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on patient preference and what Dr. Ricardo Vega thinks is best. During the procedure, an incision is made inside the mouth; this eliminates visible scarring. A pocket is created for the implant, which is then positioned in front of the jawbone. Once in place, the implant is secured with sutures, and the procedure is completed. Patients can return home the same day.​

Recovery for the chin implant procedure?​

After the chin implant procedure, patients may experience tightness and swelling in the chin. Any discomfort can be relieved with pain medication, although most patients report that any pain subsides after just a few days. A compression garment may be taped to the chin in order to reduce swelling during the healing process.​
