Chin Implant

A small chin can make even the most balanced face look less harmonious.  A prominent nose will look even more so with a protruded chin.  Flat cheekbones can make a large nose look larger and a small chin smaller.  Altering your bony facial features can improve your overall facial harmony and beauty dramatically.

A weak chin or flat cheekbones can easily be improved with an implant.  These implants are made from special medical-grade material that looks and feels like normal bone when placed.  The variety of synthetic implant materials that are available for implants increases yearly.  Dr. Weisberg always uses the material that has proven its durability and safety over many years.

During your initial consultation Dr. Weisberg can show you samples of the various implant materials, explain how your body accommodates each one, and also allow you to view possible results with our album of patients who have had the surgery.


To insert a chin implant, a small incision is made just under your chin.  The implant is slipped into place and the skin incision is then closed.  The surgery lasts approximately 30 minutes and may be performed under local anesthesia.  You will be able to go home in a few hours.  This surgery can be easily combined with the removal of fat.  This procedure, called submental lipectomy, can eliminate a “turkey wattle” or a double chin.

Whatever your chin or cheek problem, Dr. Weisberg can provide the proper cosmetic procedure in order to provide a lifelong improvement in your facial harmony.
