    What Is a Chin Implant?

    A chin implant is a small, solid insert made of silicone, Gore-Tex or other materials. It’s designed to be inserted into your chin area. The implant is typically shaped like a small half-moon or triangle, and it’s available in various sizes and shapes to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome. A chin implant can:

    1. Refine the overall shape and contour of your face
    2. Enhance your chin’s size and shape
    3. Improve the balance of your facial features
    4. Create a more defined and youthful appearance
    5. Correct any asymmetry in your chin
    6. Reduce the appearance of a receding chin or a weak jawline

    It’s worth noting that the goal of chin implant surgery, also referred to as mentoplasty or chin augmentation, is to create a natural-looking result that enhances the overall appearance of your face. Your Manhattan surgeon chooses an implant that’s proportionate to your facial features and creates a result that looks balanced and aesthetically pleasing.

    How Can I Prepare for Chin Implant Surgery?

    Preparing for chin implant surgery involves several steps to ensure a smooth and successful procedure. Tips to help you prepare for your surgery include:

    • Discussing your goals. Communicating your aesthetic goals with your surgeon during the consultation helps Dr. Shokrian understand your expectations and develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, your NYC surgeon also ensures that your expectations are realistic.
    • Stopping smoking. Smoking interferes with the healing process and increases the risk of complications. It’s recommended to stop smoking for at least two weeks before and two weeks after the procedure.
    • Avoiding certain medications. Some medications, such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery.
    • Arranging for a ride home. Chin implant surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis, but you need someone to drive you home after the procedure.
    • Planning for recovery. You need to rest and avoid strenuous activity for several weeks after surgery. Arrange for someone to help you with daily tasks, such as cooking and cleaning, during this time.

    By following these steps and your surgeon’s specific pre-operative instructions, you improve the outcome and can expect a successful chin implant surgery. Commit yourself to your results.

    What Happens during Chin Implant Surgery?

    Overall, chin implant surgery is a relatively simple procedure that usually takes less than an hour to perform. Discuss the procedure with your surgeon before deciding to do it so you can relax without wondering what’s going on. During chin implant surgery, the steps that generally occur include:

    • Anesthesia.
    • Incision.
    • Placement of implant.
    • Closure.
    • Recovery.


    You’re given either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation to ensure you’re comfortable and don’t feel any pain during the procedure.


    Your Midtown Manhattan surgeon makes a small incision either inside your mouth or under your chin to create a pocket for the implant.

    Placement of implant.

    The implant, typically made of silicone, is then inserted into the pocket your surgeon created.


    The incision is closed using sutures or surgical adhesive.


    You’re checked as you wake up from the anesthesia. After a short time in the recovery room, your surgeon discharges you from the surgical center.

    Note that a chin implant is a surgical procedure and like any surgery, it carries risks, such as a reaction to anesthesia or bleeding. These risks and potential complications are greatly reduced, however, when you rely on a New York City expert like Dr. Shokrian.

    What Happens after Chin Implant Surgery?

    After the procedure, a dressing or bandage is placed over the implant to protect the area. You’re given a list of instructions to ensure the best outcomes, which may include:

    1. Sleeping face up, with your head elevated, for about two weeks after surgery to control inflammation
    2. Consuming only a liquid diet for two days after your procedure
    3. Avoiding strenuous activity for three to four weeks

    The implant may feel firm or slightly hard to the touch. As your body adjusts over time, it begins to feel more natural and comfortable. Although it’s normal to experience moderate pain, swelling and bruising in the jaw area immediately after the procedure, these symptoms are temporary, and you can manage them with over-the-counter pain medications.

    Can I Combine Chin Implant Surgery with Other Procedures?

    A chin implant balances out the proportions of your face and improves the appearance of a weak or receding chin, but other facial features may still bother you. Rhinoplasty, for example, improves the shape and size of your nose to create a more harmonious facial profile.

    A face lift and neck lift surgery address sagging skin and muscle in your lower face and neck, while liposuction of the chin and neck area removes excess fat and creates a more defined jawline. Other procedures commonly combined with chin implant surgery include:

    Dr. Shokrian is a board certified plastic surgeon who has extensive experience in performing these and many other cosmetic procedures. Since most female and male chin implant procedures are cosmetic, insurance rarely covers them. When chin implants are inserted as a part of reconstruction after a surgery or trauma, however, there’s a good chance your insurance carrier covers much, if not all of the costs. Contact the team at Millennial Plastic Surgery to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your unique situation.
