Current chin implants provide excellent esthetic results with less surgery than osteotomies (bone cutting), and therefore provide faster, more comfortable recovery. Today’s implants blend in smoothly with the bone of the chin and they extend around the sides of the jaw to provide a beautifully natural contour. They can be used to increase chin projection (or profile prominence), and to widen the chin to make it more round or square. In addition, the surgical fees are lower because the surgical time is shorter. Chin implants are not used to lengthen or shorten the chin, or to reduce the chin size. The chin osteotomy technique is used to make these changes.
