Chin implant are specially formed solid, biocompatible materials designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face. The precise type and size of implants best suited for you requires an evaluation of your goals, the features you wish to correct and your surgeon’s judgment.
Chin implant can increase the size and projection of a chin that does not project in proportion with the forehead, nose and mid-face. A small or recessed chin can also be described as one that seems to disappear into the neck of an individual of normal weight, rather than appearing as a distinct facial feature. A weak chin can also make your nose appear more prominent, an overbite appear more pronounced, a double chin appear worse, or your neck less youthful. Dr. Clevens is able to improve facial balance and harmony through placement of a chin implant. Often, this procedure may be performed at the time of nasal plastic surgery or neck contouring procedures such as facelift or cervicofacial liposuction.
Jaw implants increase the width of the lower third of your face. Much like the chin, a weak jaw can be thought of as one that is not well-defined and distinct from the neck, or one that slopes rather than angles from the ear to the chin. In some cases, both the chin and jaw can contribute to facial imbalance. Dr. Clevens may suggest a chin implant or jaw implants to improve your results from nasal plastic surgery (rhinoplasty) or neck lift surgery.
Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones. Implants for cheeks add volume to areas which may be recessed or ﬂat. For centuries, high cheek bones have been an essential ingredient of classic beauty. Our cheeks highlight our eyes and add balance to our facial features, creating the appearance of youth and vigor. As we age, our faces tend to drop and we lose our youthful facial appearance. Through cheek augmentation, Dr. Clevens is able to create beautiful, prominent cheek bones.
If symmetry among facial features is part of your goal, facial implants may be recommended to augment more than one facial region. It’s important to remember that all of our faces are asymmetric to some degree and your results may not be completely symmetric. Dr. Clevens’ goal is to create balance and proportion. Your procedure may be performed alone, or as a complement to other facial contouring procedures such as nose or ear surgery.

Chin augmentation is very popular because it’s a relatively easy operation for the patient while producing noticeable changes in the silhouette of the face. Many patients seeking chin augmentation are motivated when they just happen to see a picture, which caught them in profile.

Chin Implant and Nose Job to Change my Profile. Is This Realistic?
Many patients seeking rhinoplasty may be surprised to learn that their chin plays an important role in the overall balance of your facial appearance. It gives you an advantage that you are already aware of how important this facial harmony is. People usually only look at themselves from the front, and it is only when they catch themselves in profile that they might realize they have a weak chin. A recessed chin exaggerates nasal imperfections, making even a normal sized nose seem larger, and is easily corrected with the placement of a chin implant. These procedures are often performed together and greatly enhance one another .
