A finely sculpted jawline is one of the most foundational facial features that balances a person’s whole appearance. If the chin is weak or melts into the neck without much definition, it can change the proportion of other features and give an asymmetrical impression overall. Dr. Adam Stein at Stein Plastic Surgery is a skilled facial surgery specialist, and he can strengthen your jawline with a custom-fit chin implant.
How do Chin Implants Work?
Studies have shown that people with refined, sculpted jawline are perceived as competent, confident, and capable. Patients who desire to improve the ratio of their facial features with their jawline can opt to have a chin implant.
Made of medical-grade, flexible silicone, chin implants can contour your chin and jawline, improve the laxity of the skin of the neck, and refine your overall face shape for better balance in your appearance.
Dr. Stein places the incision in a discreet location under your chin or inside your lower lip to access your jawbone and the surrounding structures. The prosthetic is placed in the optimal position to enhance your chin, and the sutures are closed. The procedure is remarkably fast, typically taking around 1 hour to place the implant.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Chin Augmentation?
Does the projection of your chin or its shape leave you wishing for more volume, a more shapely jawline, and better overall facial harmony? You may be a candidate for a chin implant. Patients who are most satisfied are typically in good health and have realistic expectations for the procedure’s outcome. A consultation with Dr. Stein is a great way to get started.
How Much Does a Chin Implant Procedure Cost?
While a chin augmentation is typically not covered under most medical insurance plans because it’s primarily considered a cosmetic procedure, in some cases of trauma reconstruction, insurance may pay a portion or all of the cost. For most patients, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons lists the average price of a chin augmentation at $2,449.

As such, we have kept our prices competitive, and with your procedure being performed in our accredited surgical suite, you’ll also save on hospital operating room and anesthesiology fees.
What Results Can I Expect?
Having facial implants requires surprisingly little downtime. Many of Dr. Stein’s chin augmentation patients are back to work and most other general activities within 7 days. It’s best to slowly resume more strenuous activities over time and with Dr. Stein’s recommendation during follow-up visits.
After most of the swelling subsides in 2-3 weeks, your chin’s new contour will become apparent. Chin implants are a durable medical device, so you can expect to hold your head high and enjoy your jawline’s redefined shape for the rest of your life.
