OUR TECH

Chin Implant Surgery in Vancouver, BC

Facial implants are a safe and lasting way to enhance specific facial features, and add definition. They come in a range of different shapes and sizes to best suit an individual’s facial structure. Chin Implants are used to augment the chin, create greater definition in the jawline, and hide jowling. It can be used to bring out the lower portion of the face, and add a more balanced profile once the chin is brought in line with the nose and forehead.

BENEFITS

The Benefits of Chin Implant Surgery

Bone structure of the lower face and chin is typically purely genetic, and there are ways to augment and adjust this with implants if you wish to have a more balanced appearance. Surgical chin implants are a great, safe, and effective way to address some concerns and create:

  • A more pronounced chin
  • A more balanced look to the face
  • A sharper neckline and jawline
  • A softening of the appearance of jowls

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for chin implant surgery?
+
-

Chin Implant surgery is typically ideal for patients who have an under-projected chin, which is commonly a genetic feature. Chin implant surgery can also help make improvements to jowling or lax neck skin, a rounder face shape, or a soft neck or jawline area.

How long does it take to recover from chin implant surgery?
+
-

Immediately post-surgery you will have a dressing on the surgery site that will remain in place for two to three days. You will experience some tenderness and post-operative swelling for up to six weeks. Most patients feel a stretched, tight sensation after the surgery, but this usually subsides in a week. Chewing will likely be limited immediately after chin surgery, and it may be more comfortable to shift to a liquid diet. After approximately six weeks, most swelling will subside, and you will begin to see the results of the procedure. We recommend avoiding rigorous activity for the first few weeks, but normal activity can be resumed after approximately 10 days. All details of the procedure and recovery will be explained to you in detail by your Patient Care Manager, and they are available to answer any questions for you throughout the process.

How chin implant surgery is performed
+
-

There are several implant types and insertion methods that can be used to achieve chin augmentation. Dr. Buonassisi carefully evaluates the facial profile and through discussion will recommend the size and shape of implant that would best suit the individual. Most commonly a small incision is strategically placed under the chin, so that any scarring is well-hidden. The soft tissues of the chin are then elevated away from the bone, and a small pocket is created under the periosteum (thick layer that envelops the bone) where the implant is inserted. The implant is then secured in the midline by dissolvable stitches.
