Chin Implant


As a vital element to a person’s overall appearance, the chin is often a concern for patients with overly prominent or underdeveloped features. Unfortunately, several misnomers exist associating recessed disproportionate chins as a sign of weakness, and large chins equating to an angry or aggressive personality. At Ottawa Plastic Surgery, we believe these traits do not define an individual, but can often lead to negative consequences on a person’s self-esteem and confidence. We are proud to offer our Ottawa patients the option to improve their chin and overall appearance with a Chin Implant. To learn more about this procedure and learn if it could be right for you, please keep reading the information provided below.

First steps of a Chin Implant

What’s the first step?

If you’re in Ottawa and considering a Chin Implant, your first step is to schedule a consultation with Ottawa Plastic Surgery. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns, goals, and expectations regarding your chin and facial appearance. You will meet with one of our skilled board-certified plastic surgeons who will carefully evaluate your facial anatomy, including the structure of your chin and jawline, and assess whether a chin implant is the most suitable option to achieve your desired results. 

Your surgeon will take into account your facial proportions, balance, and overall aesthetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. Once you both have agreed on the procedure plan, our Patient Coordinator will work with you to schedule your surgery and provide you with any instructions to follow before your procedure.

What to Expect on the Day of Chin Implant Surgery

On the day of your Chin Implant surgery, you can expect an efficient and effective experience. You will first be administered general anesthesia to make your procedure more tolerable and comfortable. 

To begin the procedure, your plastic surgeon will make a carefully placed incision, typically either under the chin or inside the mouth, to create a pocket for the implant. The implant, which is chosen based on your desired outcome and facial structure, will be carefully inserted and positioned to enhance the contour and projection of your chin.

After the implant is securely in place, the incision will be closed with sutures. Your provider will take great care to ensure minimal scarring and provide you with a natural-looking result.

Chin Implant Recovery

After your Chin Implant, it’s common for patients to feel slight discomfort along with some swelling. This is completely normal and should subside in the following weeks. To manage discomfort, we may prescribe pain medications or recommend over-the-counter pain relievers. 

It is important to rest and avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks to allow the chin to heal properly. Additionally, maintaining a soft or liquid diet, practicing good oral hygiene, and attending scheduled follow-up appointments will contribute to a smooth and successful recovery.
