What is a Chin Implant?
Chin implants are made in various shapes, sizes and materials. Dr. Green most typically employs silicone implants and fixates them with a single screw for stability. These implants are well tolerated by the body and can be placed via an incision under the chin when combined with a facelift procedure or through the gums of the mouth when no other procedures are planned. Based on a preoperative evaluation and discussion the patients desires are matched from a selection of implants in multiple shapes and sizes. In rare cases custom implants may be required to achieve the patients desired outcome.
