A chin implant, or chin augmentation, is a cosmetic procedure to improve the facial profile by altering the chin’s size and shape. It addresses a weak or receding chin, bringing balance. The implant, made from biocompatible materials like silicone or porous polyethylene, is chosen based on the patient’s anatomy and goals.
The implant is inserted via a small incision inside the mouth or under the chin, positioning it in front of the chin bone.
Designed for a permanent enhancement of chin prominence, implants can also be removed or replaced if needed.
Though “chin implant” and “chin augmentation” are sometimes used interchangeably, they differ. Chin augmentation encompasses any method enhancing chin size or shape. While a chin implant is a surgical method using synthetic material, other methods include injectable fillers or genioplasty, a surgical alteration of the chin bone. In essence, a chin implant is a subset of chin augmentation, both enhancing the chin’s appearance and facial profile through varied techniques.
Chin implant or chin augmentation offers several benefits that can enhance your overall appearance and boost your self-confidence. These include:
Chin implants offer improved balance and proportion to the face, especially for those with a weak or receding chin.
The procedure enhances the side profile, creating a more prominent and defined jawline for underdeveloped or receding chins.
Chin augmentation pairs well with other facial surgeries, like rhinoplasty or neck lift, for holistic facial aesthetics.
Post-surgery, many patients experience increased self-confidence due to improved facial proportions.
Unlike injectable fillers, chin implants provide lasting results without the need for regular upkeep.
Remember, as with any surgical procedure, results can vary from person to person. It's important to have realistic expectations and to discuss your goals thoroughly with Dr. Saman during your consultation.
Chin implant surgery, or chin augmentation, is a surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the size, shape, and projection of the chin to improve facial balance and profile. Here’s a general overview of the procedure:
Chin implant surgery enhances the chin’s size, shape, and projection for improved facial balance and profile. The procedure entails:
Remember: Individual results vary. Always adhere to Dr. Saman’s instructions for optimal outcomes.
Dermal fillers are treatments involving injection to add volume. Hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm or Radiesse can address a weak chin. The results can last from 6 to 24 months.
Fat grafting involves harvesting fat from one area, processing, and reinjecting into the chin for natural augmentation. The effects are often long-lasting.
This dermal filler is for those seeking results using their innate collagen. It promotes the creation of collagen in the chin, with results lasting up to 5 years.
Sliding genioplasty reconfigures the chin bone for an improved facial appearance. The recovery might involve some swelling, and pain medication could be prescribed.
Cheek implants can enhance the midface region. Facial implants can enhance one’s profile. A private consultation is advised due to potential risks. To discuss personalized options, scheduling a consultation is recommended.
In NYC, the cost of chin implant surgery varies. Factors like the complexity of the procedure, the type of implant, and the need for other cosmetic procedures affect the price. Generally, it ranges from $3,000 to $7,500, but prices may have changed.

The surgical procedure involves creating an incision either inside the mouth (an intraoral approach) or under the chin (a submental approach). A pocket is created in front of the chin bone and underneath the muscles where the implant, often made from medically safe synthetic materials, is inserted.
The recovery period varies between patients. However, most people can resume light activities within a week, with a return to more strenuous activities 3-4 weeks after surgery.
As with any surgical procedure, potential risks include infection, displacement of the implant, and unfavorable scarring. To mitigate these risks, it’s important to follow all post-operative care instructions provided by your surgeon.
Yes, chin augmentation can be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as rhinoplasty, cheek augmentation, or neck lift to achieve a harmonious balance of facial features.
The size of the implant is determined during the initial consultation based on the patient’s facial features and aesthetic goals. The surgeon will analyze the patient’s facial profile and discuss the appropriate implant size to achieve a harmonious balance.
Chin implants primarily enhance the projection and size of the chin. If you have excess fat tissue causing a double chin, procedures like neck liposuction or neck lift might be recommended in conjunction with chin augmentation for optimal results.
