Chin implant surgery is performed to enhance the shape and size of the chin and jawline which can help to bring balance to the patient’s facial proportions and enhance the overall appearance of the face. At Glassman Plastic Surgery, our team can take the time to understand what your aesthetic goals are so that we can give you the natural-looking results you are looking for from your chin implant surgery in NYC.


Chin implants reduce the chin to help provide a harmonious balance to the facial features, improving the facial profile and augmenting a weak chin. By placing a biocompatible implant in the lower jaw, patients can create a stronger chin and even lengthen the entire face. While many patients used dermal fillers to increase the size of their chin, these results only last for a few months and require frequent touch-ups. In comparison, chin implants offer patients permanent results that can be customized to achieve your unique desired look.


Chin implant surgery is an outpatient procedure and is typically performed under general or local anesthesia. At Glassman Plastic Surgery, we place the updated extended anatomic implants through a small incision under the chin. These implants produce a more natural and pleasing contour of both the jaw line and chin. The older technique of placing a football shaped implant through the mouth can not achieve this facial harmony. Chin implant surgery typically takes around one hour to perform.


The recovery period following chin implant surgery is not long. Most patients are able to return to work and resume most of their normal activities after a week or so. Pain can be managed with medication. There may be some swelling and bruising around the chin following the procedure. More physically demanding activity should be avoided for several weeks.

Patients should sleep face up with their heads elevated for around two weeks following their procedure. Dr. Glassman will be sure to provide you with post-surgical instructions following your chin surgery in NYC and follow-up visits can be scheduled.


It will take around three months for a majority of the swelling to subside so that you can see the final results of your chin implant surgery in NYC. Chin implants are durable and should provide long-lasting results. In some cases, trauma to the implant may damage the implant which can require surgery to remove and replace the implant.


The cost of your chin augmentation in NYC can be discussed during your consultation at Glassman Plastic Surgery. The price of the surgery will be based on the techniques used, the implant used, and other potential factors.
