Chin implants are made of silastic and come in a variety of sizes. They are placed either through an incision in the mouth or under the chin and act to increase the projection of a weak chin.

Chin Implants

The procedures are sometimes performed in combination with a rhinoplasty to enhance overall balance of the facial profile, or with a facelift to improve the contour of the jaw line or sagging chin.

 

In some cases, rather than using an implant, the front of the jaw bone can be cut and repositioned to improve the facial profile.
