1. Can Chin Implants Be Combined With Another Cosmetic Surgery?

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) advises that chin-implant surgery is often performed in conjunction with other surgeries to create a more comprehensive aesthetic solution. The key goal of facial cosmetic surgery is to find a balance between all the different facial features. In many cases, this means working on several areas at the same time.

The most common surgery that is combined with chin-implant surgery is a rhinoplasty (nose surgery). Your profile’s two most prominent features are your nose and your chin, so it only makes sense to focus on finding a balance between the two.

2. Do All Chin Implants Look The Same?

Chin augmentation is customized to each patient. Implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can be used to make your chin appear wider, stronger or longer. During the procedure, you surgeon may also remove any excess fatty tissue from the area to make your jawline more defined.

3. Will The Surgery Leave A Scar On My Chin?

To insert the implant, a small incision is made in the crease under the chin or inside the mouth. In both cases, the incision is strategically placed to ensure that the scar is not noticeable.

4. Am I A Good Candidate For Chin Surgery?

People who are looking to improve the structure of their jawline should consider chin augmentation. Chin implants will not help people who are looking exclusively for skin rejuvenation. Also, unlike facial fillers, they offer a permanent solution for a weak jawline.

When determining the size and shape of implant to use, consideration must be given to the overall width of the face, the spacing between the eyes, the length of the nose and the shape of the forehead. Dr. Freeman’s education at Vanderbilt University gave him the expertise necessary to make the choice that will best fulfill each client’s goals.
