Achieving balance between the upper middle and lower thirds of the face is critical to achieving the best cosmetic surgical results. Often, a recessed chin can make the nose look more prominent than it really is or can make the skin of the neck look looser or more “saggy” than it really is. A chin implant can correct these imablances. The implant is placed through a small incision under the chin, well hidden in a skin crease. Dr. Irvine performs chin implants under general anesthesia and, when indicated, combines them with a rhinoplasty or a face and necklift.
