Chin Implant

Chin implant surgerychin augmentation surgerygenioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery are closely related procedures, usually performed in order to improve contours of the chin, neck and jawline.


Although these procedures are technically different, chin implant surgery, chin augmentation, genioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery can be performed in just one setting. 

What is the difference between them? 
● Chin implant surgery – This procedure uses an implant prosthesis to provide both men and women patients with better facial features balance – usually, it adds more projection to the chin 
● Chin augmentation surgery - The jaw bone is directly enhanced in order to achieve the desired result
● Sliding genioplasty surgery – The chin bone is cut and then repositioned to a more appropriate location – this procedure typically adds more vertical height to the chin 
● Mentoplasty surgery – This procedure is performed in order to reduce the sizes of the chins or correct any malformations of the chin caused by abnormal jaw bones 

Chin augmentation surgery, chin implant surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery are very popular choices among both patients and surgeons from all around the world because of the effectiveness as well as the simplicity and safety of the procedures. These surgeries can be performed either individually or in coordination with rhinoplasty or a neck lift procedure.

Patients who want to benefit from the advantageous cost of medical tourism abroad, travel to countries such as Turkey for their chin implant surgeries to meet the skilled surgeons, to have the best healthcare and to get a comfortable recovery. 

Chin Implant Candidates

Chin implant surgery, chin augmentation surgery, genioplasty surgery or mentoplasty surgery are recommended for any individual who is dissatisfied with the appearance, shape or size of their chin and its negative effect on their facial balance. 

Am I Suitable for Chin Implant?

Mentoplasty surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery, chin augmentation surgery or chin implant surgery are not recommended for patients suffering from one or more of the following conditions: 

● Severe microgenia – an extremely small or deformed chin 
● Labial incompetence 
● Lip protrusion 
● Severe protrusion 
● Periodontal disease

Preparing for Chin Implant

Patients need to quit smoking at least a month before and after the surgery. Blood thinners such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, herbal teas and supplements are forbidden for at least 2 weeks before the procedure.

How is Chin Implant Performed?

Prior to surgery, x-rays of the chin and face are taken and the surgeon decides on which parts of the chin area to modify based on these x-rays.

Depending on the patient’s expectation and his or her facial balance, one of these procedures can be performed: mentoplasty surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery, chin augmentation surgery or chin implant surgery.


Anesthesia choice for these procedures can be local or general. Incisions can be created inside, in the mouth or outside, right under the chin.

If the patient requires a chin implant, the surgeon will create a small pocket in front of the chin bone but under the muscle in order to place the implant. 

Different types of implants can be chosen, general options are: 
● Bone grafted from the patient 
● Fat tissue 
● Silicone implant 
● Biological inserts 

An artificial chin implant is one of the most preferred options as it has a lower risk of developing complications such as infections. The surgeon may also create cuts into the jaw bone or remove and reposition the chin bone for a better effect.
