What Is Chin Implant Surgery?
Chin implant surgery is a procedure to enhance and redefine the contours of the chin, lower face, and jawline. These implants are small, solid devices comprised of biocompatible materials such as silicone. They can enhance the appearance of a small or receding chin by making it longer or larger to create harmony with your nose and other features.
By balancing facial proportions and improving symmetry, this surgery can help patients grow more confident in their appearance. The best chin implants in Palm Beach can also adjust other concerns, such as:
- Asymmetrical or disproportional features
- Underdeveloped or malformed chin
- Poorly defined jawline and neck
- A double chin
Facial rejuvenation procedures like chin implant surgery can renew your appearance by crafting a sleeker jawline. Chin implants can also create:
- A slimmer facial profile
- A more youthful appearance
- Increased confidence
- Safe, effective, and long-lasting results
Since the chin and nose work together, many of our patients opt to combine their chin implant surgery with rhinoplasty or non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Other patients may choose a neck lift or liposuction in conjunction with a chin implant to reduce facial fullness and achieve a more defined chin and jawline.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for Chin Implant Surgery?
Ideal candidates for chin implant surgery are generally healthy non-smokers who are looking for permanent solutions to enhance their facial profile, chin, and jawline by adding definition.
Dr. Bellamy recommends chin implant surgery candidates should:
- Live a healthy lifestyle
- Have completed facial growth
- Not have conditions that impair healing
- Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
- Have realistic expectations
- Understand the surgical risks

What Can I Expect During Chin Implant Surgery?
Dr. Bellamy performs all surgeries in our state-of-the-art, fully certified AAAASF operating rooms. On the day of your surgery, our nursing staff will welcome you; then, you’ll review your procedural plan with Dr. Bellamy. He will answer any final questions you may have and make surgical markings before beginning your chin implant surgery.
Preparing for Your Chin Implant Procedure
In the weeks leading up to your surgery, we advise you to maintain a healthy, high-protein, low-sodium diet. Stop taking most herbal supplements, especially any containing garlic, fish oil, or zinc. We also ask you to stop taking medicines containing aspirin, including Excedrin, ibuprofen, or Aleve, as these can cause bleeding or bruising. During your consultation, Dr. Bellamy will review all your current medications and provide instructions on how to proceed with them.
Smoking, vaping, or using any other nicotine products are strictly off-limits for at least four weeks before and after your procedure. Nicotine constricts blood vessels and affects the body’s ability to heal, potentially impacting your recovery and results.
Chin Implant Procedure and Recovery
Dr. Bellamy will begin your chin implant by creating a well-concealed incision inside your mouth or beneath your chin. Then, Dr. Bellamy will make space for your chin implant and secure it to your jawbone.
Chin implant surgery is an outpatient procedure, so you’ll need to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first day. You may require assistance with simple daily tasks, especially if you have young children, pets, or other family members under your care.
Following your chin implant surgery, swelling and bruising are common effects. You may need to wear a compression dressing or chinstrap for up to three weeks to provide support to your new chin contours and minimize swelling.
Plan on taking approximately one week off work for recovery. For four to six weeks, you will need to avoid strenuous activities, including exercising. However, Dr. Bellamy recommends taking slow, gentle walks as soon as you feel well enough.
To ensure a safe recovery from your chin implant surgery, it’s crucial to thoroughly follow all post-surgical instructions, including:
- Following a soft food or liquid diet for a few days
- Rinsing your mouth after meals
- Being gentle when brushing your teeth
- Sleeping on your back with your head elevated for one to two weeks
How Soon Will I See My Chin Implant Surgery Results?
Following chin implant surgery, most patients experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Swelling typically resolves within the first month; however, your chin and jaw appearance may continue improving for the next three months.
Chin implants last a lifetime, so you will enjoy long-lasting results by maintaining a stable weight through a healthy diet and exercise routine.
