Many men and women frequently consider Chin implants, especially those who have a weak or receding chin, and would like a more defined jaw-line. Shaped silicone implants can help enhance the line of the jaw and chin, accentuating those areas and making your face better proportioned.
A weak chin can also make a normal nose appear large and a prominent nose seem even larger. It may also give the appearance of a 'fleshy' or short neck. On the other hand, a prominent chin may give the appearance of a disproportionately small nose. The end result of any surgery should be a balanced relationship between the structures of the face.
A chin implant can be placed from inside the mouth or through a small incision beneath the chin. The advantages to each should be discussed with your surgeon. A chin implant procedure generally takes about 30 to 45 minutes and the resulting downtime is about a week or less.
