What is a Chin Implant?

Also referred to as mentoplasty, chin augmentations such as chin implants are used to strengthen the look of the jaw or to add symmetry. The implants themselves can be configured in a variety of sizes and shapes – tailor-made to either lengthen the look of the face or make the chin appear broader.

Results seen in this picture is achieved through combination of chin implant, face lift, and laser resurfacing treatments.

How is a Chin Implant Placed?

A chin implant is inserted over the framework of the lower jaw in order to enhance it or add to its dimensions. While dermal fillers, such as Restylane® or Juvederm®, can enhance the look of the chin temporarily, chin implant provides a permanent solution.

Who are the Best Candidates for Chin Implant Surgery?

Healthy individuals who desire “stronger-looking” chins are good candidates for surgery.

What Does the Procedure Entail?

A chin augmentation or implant may be performed by itself or along with other facial procedures, such as the Natural Face™ Lift or blepharoplasty. Before the procedure, the physician will select the correct implant for your face’s size and shape. Implants are typically made of silicone.

If the implant is manufactured with silicone, the surgeon will place a very small incision beneath the chin. The implant is then affixed to the soft tissue or bone before the incision is sutured shut.

How Long Does the Surgery Take?

Usually, the procedure itself takes no longer than 45 minutes to perform.

How Long Does Recovery Take?

Recovery requires little downtime. Patients usually feel fine 24 hours after the surgery although they are advised to rest. While you are recuperating, the doctor may recommend an over-the-counter or prescription medication. An antibiotic may also be prescribed to reduce any risk of infection.

How Much Does a Chin Implant Cost?

The costs involved with a Natural Face™ procedure can vary depending on the extent of the treatment necessary to achieve optimum results.  Having our own private on-site surgical facility allows our patients to save money by including all the before and after care, operating room costs, and the local anesthetic fees together.  Natural Face™ Clinics accepts all major credit cards.  We can also assist if you need financing through CareCredit®.  Please call and ask for our concierge services for assistance with financing.

TESTIMONIALS
I was working in Central New York and had an upcoming event and needed to get 2 areas of Dystport done. They were able to accommodate my schedule( as it was short notice) Dr. Kim’s entire staff was so friendly and welcoming!! During the procedure , even Nurse Dan held my hand and kept me smiling the whole time!! I was incredibly impressed with Dr Kim as he made sure he took the time to explain the process as well as not “ being rushed” something I have experienced with previous Doctors. I live in Florida but will be seeing Dr Kim from now on, and will be recommending their office to my fellow New Yorkers! It’s been almost 2 weeks since my appointment and the results are amazing!!! So happy! Thank you so much Dr Kim, Mary and the rest of the staff !

Dr. Kim is a world-class facial plastic surgeon. I’ve been to the top surgeons in the country from Beverly Hills to Miami and I found Dr. Kim to be superior. His face and neck lift were flawless and so natural that no one could tell I had anything done, but everyone said I looked ten years younger. As Syracuse is a discreet location, I would highly recommend anyone who wants a top notch face and neck lift to fly in. His bedside manner is as fantastic as his work. I can’t recommend Dr. Kim enough. I think he is the best Facial plastic surgeon in the country.

57 years old and wanted to start my new path in life retired...not looking tired! I did extensive research and sought out 5 surgeon recommendations. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Sang Kim for several reasons: 1 - He specialized in and only performs /neck surgeries, 2 - Dr. Kim is younger and probably more newly established, but there was no doubt that he is a perfectionist and a professional in his field, 3 - He is patient and really listens. I felt confident and trusted that he was giving me his best recommendation for my concerns, 4 - He didn't try to push unnecessary or extra procedures, 5 - I was impressed by how obvious it was that Dr. Kim's administrative and medical staff liked him and respected his work. But most of all, I am extremely satisfied with the results of my face lift!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kim. He is the most patient, professional, and personable physician I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Instead of being rushed through the practice, every member of his staff made me feel welcome and important from the moment I walked through the door. He wouldn't perform a single procedure on me until he fully answered every minute question I had (all of which he eloquently and candidly answered); you can tell that his formal training was exceptional. His bedside manner and skilled technique easily make him one of the best kept secrets in Syracuse. I have referred numerous friends to him who have also, in turn, referred their friends. Make the consult and see for yourself... you won't be disappointed!

Dr. Kim and his staff were incredible. I had a face lift done this past summer and I was treated with dignity and respect by everyone. Dr. Kim is an exceptional surgeon and one of the nicest and kindest doctors I have ever met. I had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his entire staff. I recently went back to Dr. Kim for injections. Again my experience was wonderful. He explains everything he is going to do and what to expect. I didn't bruise and I love the fact that he doesn't overdo. He and his staff are just incredible. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
