Chin Implant in Cleveland, OH
Chin implant can restore chin and jawline contour. An under-projected, or “weak”, chin or jaw can interfere with facial proportions. A weak chin or jawline can cause the neck to appear older. From the profile view a weak chin may also create an illusion of a larger nose.

Who is a Candidate for Chin Implant?
People who have a weak chin or jaw who desire to restore harmony and balance to their face may be excellent candidates for chin implant or jawline augmentation. As chin projection is an important determinant in facial proportions, chin augmentation is sometimes recommended as an adjunct for patients undergoing other facial plastic surgery procedures such as facelift, neck lift or rhinoplasty.
How is Chin Implant Performed?
Chin implant or jawline augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis under light or moderate sedation and may be done under local anesthesia as well. A soft and flexible silicone implant is placed through an incision hidden under the chin or, in some cases, behind the lower lip. A thorough assessment and discussion with Dr. Harmych will determine the size and shape of the implant most appropriate to achieve harmony and balance to the facial appearance.
What is the Recovery like from Chin Implant?
Chin implant and jawline augmentation are performed on an outpatient basis with most patients returning to the comfort of their own home within a few hours. Most patients require prescription pain medicine for about 3 days. Pain, swelling, and mild bruising generally resolve within 2-3 weeks. Activity is restricted for two weeks. Most patients return to work and social activity in about one week.
