Chin Implants (Genioplasty)


Combined with some targeted liposuction of the neck or a mini-facelift procedure, such as the tightening of muscles in and around the chin and neck, a restored more refined and balanced profile can be achieved with a chin implant, chin reduction, and cheek implant procedures.

Chin Implants:

If you have inherited a profile with little or no chin or perhaps a chin that is just too large or prominent and would like a more defined facial profile, chin implants or chin reduction may be a good option. As we age and fat deposits begin to accumulate in and around the chin and neck area we can lose that photogenic profile we once enjoyed. A weak or under defined chin can accentuate the nose making it appear that the nose is larger.

Cheek Implants:

Prominent elevated cheekbones have always helped to define the classic notion of beauty that epitomizes what it means to look and feel your best.

If you were not born with such classic beauty or have lost that well-defined cheekbone you once enjoyed when you were younger a cheek implant may be an option worth considering. For many candidates, cheek implants can dramatically improve your facial contour by restoring once prominent facial features and adding balance to the face.

Chin Implant Procedure

A very small incision is made under the chin and the implant gently placed. While standard chin implants are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, chin Implants can be custom fitted to achieve the maximum cosmetic result. The surgery is minor, while the changes to the silhouette of the face are very noticeable. A chin implant procedure only takes about 30 minutes.

Chin Implant Recovery

Chin implant patients will experience swelling and possible bruising. They will return for their first post-op appointment the day after surgery. They will return to the Northern Virginia offices at about a week to remove their stitches.

Let me invite you to consult with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Virginia's Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery and see for yourself the dramatic results that can be achieved with a chin implant.
