Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the chin by either augmenting or reducing its size and shape. For chin augmentation, we use individually customized chin implants at our Beverly Hills practice to improve a person's profile and correct a "weak" or recessed chin. Our plastic surgeons also perform chin reduction, which helps refine an overly projected chin and make it more subtle.

Simply put, Dr. Chang is phenomenal on so many levels! It was such an easy decision to choose her to perform my breast implant replace and lift surgery. Apart from having a "rock star" academic resume, upon meeting her I was immediately impressed as she has a very caring demeanor, is personable, professional, compassionate, but most importantly, incredibly experienced and knowledgeable.
Chin implants are designed to mimic a natural bone structure, and each implant is highly customized to the patient's unique anatomy to improve the overall appearance and proportion. Each custom implant is designed to fit each patient’s anatomy seamlessly for optimal final results.
Chin implants are an ideal way to create a more defined profile and enhance your overall appearance. People with a weak or recessed chin tell our doctors that they have the appearance of a constant double chin or that they lack definition between their jaw and neck. A highly customized chin implant can improve the definition between the jawline and neck and give you a strong jaw and an elegant profile.
During a chin augmentation procedure, a small incision is hidden underneath the chin or inside the mouth. A pocket is then created for the individualized chin implant (typically made of semi-solid silicone), which is then placed and positioned in front of the jawbone. Once in place, the implant is secured with sutures. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes approximately one hour.
