Chin Implants in the Vancouver Area

Print This Page

Many people are born with a less-defined or "weak" chin, and others experience chin recession as they age. In any case, a lack of definition in the chin area can contribute to features that look out of balance, a disproportional profile, or an appearance of a "double" chin. Chin augmentation with implants or with facial fillers is a relatively straightforward procedure to bring out the chin, creating more of a distinction between the neck and jaw, and a sense of balance among the features.

Dr. Mathew Mosher specializes in facial procedures to help you look and feel your best. Even a simple procedure such as chin augmentation can make a dramatic improvement in your appearance and self-confidence.

About Chin Implants

Chin augmentation, or augmentation mentoplasty, is a procedure for making the chin more prominent in order to create balance and harmony among the facial features. It is often performed in conjunction with face lift or neck lift or liposuction of the neck and chin to create a more defined, youthful jaw line. The chin is enhanced by the insertion of a small implant, creating a more balanced profile and facial structure. These implants are typically made of silicone, and come in many different shapes and sizes. In other cases, chin augmentation can be accomplished with nonsurgical dermal and facial fillers or BELKYRA®, a nonsurgical option for patients who wish to reduce fat below the chin.

Your Chin Augmentation Procedure

Typically, chin surgery is an outpatient procedure that can be performed under light general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Dr. Mosher makes the incision for your chin implant surgery either in the natural crease beneath the chin or inside the mouth at the junction of the gum and lower lip. He creates a pocket for the implant, inserts it in place, and closes the tiny incision with fine sutures. When the incision is made inside the mouth, there is no visible scarring. When the incision is made on the underside of the chin, the scar is practically undetectable.

Recovery and Results

After your surgery, you will experience some discomfort and swelling. Your ability to chew may be limited, so a liquid or soft food diet may be necessary for a few days following surgery. Most patients can return to work and light activities within 7 to 10 days, with full results emerging over the course of 4 to 6 weeks.

Alternative Options

At YES Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery Centre, we offer a broad range of highly effective non-surgical options that you can choose instead of, or in addition to, surgery:
