Chin Implant – Add Volume & Dimension
Learn More About Chin Implant Surgery
A chin implant is a surgical procedure that modifies and enhances the overall appearance of the chin and face by modifying the appearance and shape of the chin. Chin implants add volume and dimension to the chin and are usually considered by people who want to add height, width or volume to the chin and improve facial symmetry. A chin implant is considered a minor surgical procedure and uses recent technological advances in implants to provide a safe and effective cosmetic procedure.
A chin implant is able to provide the following improvements to the chin:
- Increase projection (the degree to which it ‘sticks out’ from the side view)
- Increase width (make the chin wider)
- Decrease the appearance of jowls
- Increase vertical chin height
- Decrease or eliminate mentalis muscle dimpling (constant contraction of the ‘chin muscle’ is often due to a weak chin)
- Improve overall facial proportions and harmony (e.g. a weak chin can make a larger nose look larger)
Jaw line Redefined
The ideal candidate for a chin implant is a patient in optimal health that has identified problem areas in the chin and wants to add volume and dimension to the chin. One of the most common challenges corrected is for patients with weak chins. The chin implant can correct this issue and help men and women feel at their most comfortable with their appearance.
This procedure is designed to correct a number of common cosmetic issues, particularly for patients who feel they have a weak chin and low confidence as a result of their facial features.
Individuals considering a chin implant to improve problem areas in the chin may identify the following challenges:
- A “weak” chin.
- A chin that attracts attention to the jowls.
- A chin with that has muscle dimpling.
Dr. Craft and your enhancement team will work with you to outline an enhancement plan. Prior to the chin implant procedure, your enhancement team will discuss and explain the procedure to you in detail. Your team will also work with you to identify problem areas and create an enhancement that will give you an enhanced but natural looking appearance.
A chin implant is a surgical procedure that is performed under general anesthetic. A chin lift does involve incisions usually under the chin in the natural chin crease.
Dr. Craft has the skill and expertise to make these incisions as small and inconspicuous as possible. Dr. Craft and the enhancement team will work with you to identify the incisions placements. The incisions are small enough to blend into the natural curves of your face and neck and do not impact the overall appearance after the surgery. Once the incisions have been made, Dr. Craft will create a small pocket in which to place the implant. One the implant is placed and secured, the incisions are closed with absorbable suture and dressing to the area in order to prevent bleeding, reduce swelling, and support the affected area.

Rest & Recovery
The length of the recovery will depend on how extensive of a procedure the patient undergoes. Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and reduce the recovery time.
A support garment may need to be worn for at least 2 weeks after the surgery. These garments can help prevent swelling. Patients sometimes report pain after the procedure. Commonly, the most pain is felt the first 48 hours following the procedure. The pain can be treated effectively with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize the risk for potential problems by carefully following the directions given after surgery.
Within 5-to- 7 days after the procedure has been completed, the vast majority of the swelling will have receded, allowing you to enjoy your normal everyday activities. In achieving a successful recovery from the chin implant procedure, it’s important that patients work directly with their specialist and analyze the full range of considerations to ensure procedural success.
