Chin augmentation enhances the appearance of the chin, bringing harmony to the facial features. A chin implant augments the chin’s size and projection. These safe, long-lasting implants provide natural-looking results that give you a stronger, more balanced profile. Individuals with a weak or small chin can benefit from this procedure.
What is a Chin Implant?
A chin implant is made of silicone and placed in the chin to add volume and projection. The implant is customized to fit the patient’s facial structure and desired results, creating a natural-looking appearance. Chin implants come in various sizes and shapes, allowing Dr. Sozer to tailor the implant to your unique facial features.

How Does a Chin Implant Work?
Dr. Sozer performs chin implants at the accredited El Paso Cosmetic Surgery Center. He will customize the procedure using a detailed understanding of your goals and concerns. The minor procedure usually takes about an hour under general anesthesia and it can be combined with a Rhinoplasty if needed.
How Long Do Chin Implants Last?
A chin implant is an FDA-approved medical device. Most people can keep their chin implants for a lifetime without issues. Surgeons use similar implants to correct a wide variety of aesthetic and medical issues, and their safety has been extensively tested. Once a chin implant has been placed, most people never have to worry about it again.
What Procedures Can I Have With a Chin Implant?
Chin implants can be performed as a standalone procedure or with other facial surgeries, such as rhinoplasty, facelift, or neck lift. A chin implant may be necessary for you to enjoy the full benefits of another procedure. For example, if you have a small chin but choose to have a neck lift, you may need an implant to see a sculpted, defined appearance. If you have rhinoplasty, a chin implant can make your features more harmonious.

Strenuous activity should wait several weeks, and Dr. Sozer will advise when you can return to your exercise routine.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Chin Implant?
Most people make good candidates for a chin implant. This procedure has a relatively short recovery time.
