Chin Implant in Baltimore, MD
If you are unhappy with the shape or profile of your jawline, you may benefit from a chin implant. A chin implant is a simple yet effective procedure to restore balance to your face. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Samuel Hahn of the Maryland Center for Facial Plastic Surgery performs chin implants for patients throughout the Baltimore, Towson, Columbia, and surrounding communities looking to improve their facial balance and profile.
What is a Chin Implant?
A well-defined chin is important to an attractive facial profile. A “strong” chin can add length and definition to the neck, create a sculpted jawline, and balance the nasal profile. Chin implant or chin augmentation is a procedure performed to improve the projection of a recessed or “weak” chin. This is done by placing a curved implant in a small pocket against the bony chin to gently lift the skin and soft tissue to the desired projection. A chin implant can be an excellent adjunct procedure performed with rhinoplasty or facelift surgery to improve the facial balance and maximize facial rejuvenation.
How Much Does a Chin Implant Cost?
There are numerous factors that go into the cost of a chin implant procedure. The cost of the procedure will depend on the extent of surgery including bony projection and soft tissue contouring necessary to achieve the ideal result. During your consultation with Dr. Hahn, we will provide you with a clear breakdown of costs and explain your payment options.
What are the Benefits of a Chin Implant?
A chin implant or chin augmentation help balance facial features if you have a recessed or “weak” chin. Some of the benefits this procedure offers includes:
- Improved neck and jaw lines with smoother appearance
- Can improve the appearance of the nose by balancing nasal prominence
- Provides facial harmony between the nose, jaw, and neck leading to a more attractive facial profile
How is a Chin Implant Performed?
A chin implant is performed through a small incision hidden under your chin or inside your lower lip. A small pocket is made along the lower portion of the jaw where the implant, which is made from a solid but flexible material such as silicone or porous polyethylene (Medpor®), can be secured.
