New Jersey Chin Implants
What it is:
A chin implant, also known as genioplasty, is an appealing option for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their chin or jaw. An undefined or weak chin can alter the facial profile but is not always a procedure that patients think of to correct facial imbalance.
Chin augmentation can provide harmony and balance to a face and is often a useful adjuvant technique during rhinoplasty or facelifting procedures. The chin implant itself can be made of silicone or other materials and is usually soft and flexible to mimic the feel of natural tissue.
They can be made to either make your chin wider and more prominent or narrower to elongate your face. Dr. Wise uses revolutionary techniques and safe implants to enhance these facial features in a single, safe procedure that does not require repeat treatments.
Dr. Jeffrey Wise has performed many chin augmentation procedures at our office in New Jersey and can help you define and enhance the shape of your chin. Dr. Wise will collaborate with you to find the optimal technique and implant size to maximize your beauty.
Where it helps:
Chin augmentation with an implant can provide harmony and balance to your face. Chin augmentation, in particular, is often a useful adjuvant technique during rhinoplasty or facelifting procedures. For example, a weak chin will often make the nose appear more prominent.
Balancing the chin with the nose can disguise the size of the nose, but the procedures can be performed in conjunction to enhance the results of both. Your rhinoplasty procedure may even be simplified if the chin augmentation balances your features in a more flattering way.
Oftentimes, placement of a small chin implant brings more balance to the middle and lower thirds of the face to enhance the natural contours of your profile. Chin implants in New Jersey can benefit men and women alike who struggle with a receding chin.
You may have had injectable fillers to make your chin more prominent, but want more permanent results with an implant. You must also have a properly-functioning jaw in order to be considered for a chin implant procedure.
What it entails:
Dr. Wise performs chin augmentation through inconspicuous incisions that are quite small. There are several options and techniques available. At times, the implant can be placed using an incision inside the mouth, eliminating any visible scarring. When outward incisions are required, they are placed indiscriminately to avoid unflattering scars.
The placement of the implant will determine the size and location of the incision. Once the incision is made, the custom implant will be delicately placed in a secure pocket in the chin. The incision is closed and you will be given time to rest in our clinic. The procedure usually takes about 1 to 2 hours.
What to expect:
With Dr. Wise’s meticulous technique, a chin implant involves very little pain and only a small amount of initial swelling. Dr. Wise uses a customized topical anesthetic for minimal discomfort. Recovery after a chin implant varies by individual, but discomfort is minimal and can be alleviated by medication, which we will prescribe.
Most patients are pleasantly surprised with the quick and easy recovery from chin augmentation. We recommend that you relax at home until the initial stages of healing have passed. You should also be careful not to bump your chin to keep the implant in its intended position as it heals.
When placed properly by an experienced surgeon like Dr. Wise, the shape of your chin will be drastically improved, but the implant will not be obviously felt or seen by others.
Most normal activities, including work, may be resumed within seven to ten days after your procedure. The results of your procedure are evident almost immediately but will improve as you continue to heal. You’ll be able to enjoy your attractive, balanced facial features for many years to come.

I had been referred to Dr. Wise by a close friend so I made an appointment to discuss a procedure. He answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease about the process and expectations. I just had my fourth procedure by Dr. Wise and I have never looked better. If anyone in Northern NJ is looking to have any cosmetic procedure go see Dr. Wise! Patient from Woodland Park, New Jersey
