Chin surgery is a cosmetic procedure that is based on aesthetics, working to balance the chin with other prominent features of the face or enhance a weak chin. To augment the chin, an implant is used. These implants are made of synthetic material such as silicone, and is put into place create a more proportionately balanced face. In addition to chin correction, some patients choose to also undergo other procedures at the same time. These procedures can include cheek implants or rhinoplasty.

Ideal candidates

A chin augmentation is particularly suited to those who have a weak chin or other prominent features such as a larger nose that can affect symmetry. The best candidates for the cosmetic procedure will be those without:

  • Serious health concerns
  • cardiac conditions
  • hypertension
  • Medical concerns that require taking anticoagulants

As with any cosmetic surgery, it is important for the patient to have a realistic expectation concerning the result. The surgeon will go through the process and the results you can expect during your consultation.

How the operation is performed

A chin correction is a relatively straight forward surgery and is usually an outpatient procedure, meaning the patient is not required to stay overnight. This surgery can be performed using either general or local anaesthetic. To begin the procedure, an incision is made in a discreet area, this may be under the chin or inside the mouth. An implant is then inserted, secured and sutured to hold it in place. Usually, the entire length of the procedure will be around an hour.


Facial implants are generally quite safe. However, as with any surgery, there are some risks involved with chin enlargements. One of the more common complications are implants that will shift out of its original position. If this occurs, another surgery may be required to rectify the issue. Less common complications are infection and numbness in the area. It is important every patient has a thorough discussion with their surgeon to ensure they fully understand the risks of their procedure.
