Chin Implant

Chin Implant

A chin implant enhances your face and strengthens your profile, providing a more proportionate appearance in relation to your jawline and neck. Mid Florida Institute of Plastic Surgery correct your receding or under-defined chin or, if your chin is too prominent, sculpt your jawline so that it no longer overwhelms your entire face.

Who is it for?

Healthy adults who want more balanced features,  a more refined profile, or a smoother, less fleshy neck.

What is treatment like?

Surgery is outpatient, performed under general or local and intravenous anesthesia. Incisions will be made inside the mouth or under the chin. A recessed chin may require an implant or injection of fat, harvested from your own body, to give it permanent structure and shape. In the case of a reduction, your surgeon will shape your bone to a more pleasing shape.

Following surgery, you’ll be on a liquid or soft food diet for several days, and your skin may feel tight, but this should subside in a week or so.

What are the risks?

All surgeries carry risks for medical complications, which your surgeon will discuss with you. Avoid aspirin, Advil, fish oil, or other blood thinners for a few weeks leading up to surgery, to avoid hematomas and excessive bleeding.

What are the results?

Swelling can last for six months, but you should see a sculpted, pleasing profile in about a week.
