For patients who have larger noses, a chin implant can benefit them by giving the illusion that the nose is smaller. Patients with a short or indistinct neck may also benefit from a chin implant. Because the chin has such a large influence on the shape of the neck, an implant can help the neck look elongated and more prominent.
A chin implant is not one size fits all—it comes in various shapes and sizes, and it is tailored to each patient. The implant is placed over the existing bone in the chin to increase the size of the chin; the implant does not remove any of the existing bone structure. The appropriate implant shape and size is determined throughout consultations with an Orlando plastic surgeon.
