Before you decide whether or not you want to go under the knife and get your jawline enhanced with a chin implant, it is important for you to know the details of the surgery. This way you will know exactly what to expect. The surgery involves placing an implant around your chin bone to change the shape and size of your chin to achieve a balance with other facial features.

Chin implant surgery is an outpatient procedure, which means that you will not have to spend the night in the hospital. The procedure can be performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make an incision under the chin or inside your mouth. Through this incision, the surgeon will create space for the chin implant to be inserted and the implant will be fitted around your chin bone.

Following the surgery, the surgeon will close the incision with sutures, and you will be asked to keep your chin bandaged till the wound from the incision starts to heal. The surgeon will take around one hour to perform the chin implant surgery.
