Chin implants can do wonders for weak or receding chins. Arrowhead Plastic Surgeons offers chin implant procedures to patients in Toledo, Maumee, Perrysburg, Bowling Green, Findlay, Sylvania, and the surrounding areas looking to reshape or enhance their chins through surgery.
What is a Chin Implant?
A chin implant or augmentation is done to balance the chin with the rest of the face. Sometimes, a weak chin can cause your nose to look larger or your neck to look “fleshy.” By inserting a chin implant, you can strengthen the appearance of a receding or a weak chin and create a stronger, more proportional look.
At Arrowhead Plastic Surgeons, we strive to give every patient our utmost respect, professionalism, and expertise. We welcome new patients from Toledo, Maumee, Perrysburg, and the surrounding areas, and we’d be happy to set up your consultation today.

How is a Chin Implant Procedure Performed?
The chin implant procedure, also known as mentoplasty, starts with your surgeon making an incision under the chin or inside the mouth. A sizer is placed first to determine what size implant best enhances the proportion of your face. The sizer is then removed, and the appropriate implant is placed. Finally, your incision will be closed with sutures.
Preparing for Your Chin Implant Procedure
You will find out ahead of time any changes you will need to make prior to the procedure. Typically you will be asked to stop smoking, if you are a smoker, at least two weeks before the surgery. Stopping smoking will help you heal better and will aid in lowering your risk factors.
Chin Implant Recovery
It’s not uncommon to experience some mild soreness and swelling following the mentoplasty procedure, causing your chin to feel tight. To reduce the swelling, you should keep your head elevated as much as possible. And while you should limit your activity for the first few days post-surgery, you will be back to work and normal activities within a week.
How Much Does a Chin Implant Procedure Cost?
If you want to discuss chin implant prices and financing, it’s best to call our offices and speak with a member of our staff. Because each patient is different, chin implant costs tend to vary. That’s why we recommend coming in for a consultation, where you can sit down with the doctor face to face and discuss all of your questions and concerns prior to surgery.
Is a Chin Implant Right for Me?
If you are a man or woman who is in generally good physical and mental health and you’re unhappy with the look of your weak chin, you may be a good candidate for a chin implant. Ideally, your jaws and teeth should also be functioning properly to obtain the best results. Your medical background will also play a part in whether or not you are a good candidate for this procedure. If you have any immune system problems, if you’re suffering from hypertension or other cardiac problems, or if you’re a smoker, you may not be a suitable candidate. Discuss your medical history with your doctor prior to the surgery.
