If your chin feels out of balance with the rest of your face, you may consider a chin implant. A recessed or small chin can make the lower part of your face look less defined and contoured. A chin implant can help you achieve facial balance, so you have a strong chin to match the rest of your features.
What is a Chin Implant?
The procedure to place a chin implant is called chin augmentation. Dr. Schalit will place a firm silicone implant under the skin and soft tissue of your chin. This adds projection and enhances the shape and profile of the chin. This enhancement can make your jaw and neckline look more defined and balanced.
The implant is placed through a small hidden incision under the chin or inside the mouth. Dr. Schalit will use a sizer to determine the best implant size for you, then place your permanent implant and close the incision.
What Does a Chin Implant Look Like?
A silicone chin implant looks like much more than just a small bump at the end of the chin. The implant wraps around the front of the lower jaw to provide a seamless appearance with no obvious line where the implant ends. Dr. Schalit will choose an implant size that gives you appropriate projection without making your chin look too obvious or protrude too much.
What Results Will I See From a Chin Implant?
After your chin implant surgery, you will see more chin projection and width, both from the front and from the side. Your face will look stronger and more balanced. You will have better facial contours with a more defined jaw and a slimmer-looking neck.

What is Recovery Like From a Chin Implant Like?
You may experience some soreness and swelling after surgery as your face adjusts to the implant. This will start to resolve within a few days. Most people return to work within a week, although you may still have some minor bruising.
How Much Does a Chin Implant Cost?
Your expenses for your chin implant will depend on your location, your provider, and the type of procedure you have. The average cost for a chin implant is $2,364. This does not include other fees or costs such as anesthetic or medications.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Chin Implant?
If you have a “weak” or receding chin, you may be a good candidate for chin implant surgery. A chin implant can give strength and contouring to your facial features. Ideal candidates have reasonable expectations and no major health problems.
