What is the Best Incision for a Chin Implant?

If you’re embarrassed about the shape of your chin or bothered by a weak jawline, a chin augmentation could provide you with the confidence-boosting solutions you’ve been looking for.  A chin augmentation procedure changes the shape of your jawline via a silicone chin implant, which is placed directly underneath the chin.  The implant is small and shaped to your particular needs, meaning the final results will make your chin – and face! – appear more defined and contoured.

The placement of the chin implant can play a large role in how quickly you recover from the chin augmentation procedure.  Typically, chin implants are placed via one of two incision locations:

  • Through the mouth
  • Underneath the chin

There are specific benefits in using both incision locations.  Incisions made through the mouth may be a better option for people who are concerned about scarring, as the incision is made inside of the mouth.  However, patients who want minimal pain and faster recovery may be interested in chin implant placement underneath the chin.
