A well-defined chin and jaw line are characteristic of the classic male form. A strong chin projects masculinity, but men can lack this feature because of congenital bone structure, age-related bone absorption, or trauma. An excellent way of correcting a weak male jawline is the addition of a chin implant to make the chin more pronounced. Chin augmentation for men not only creates a more masculine jaw line, it can reduce the relative prominence of the patient’s nose and the appearance of a weak or “fleshy” neck.

Implant materials vary to include silicone, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene, polyethylene, hydroxyapatite, and a number of injectable materials such as collagen and injectable silicone. Chin implant procedures normally require minor incisions and leave minimal scarring that is virtually imperceptible. Each material and procedure has its advantages and disadvantages.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is chin augmentation right for me?
If you have a small chin in proportion to the rest of your facial features, chin augmentation may be right for you. Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Berkowitz is the best way to determine if chin implantation is the right course to correct any cosmetic deficiencies.
What happens at the initial consultation?
Dr. Berkowitz will ask you about your goals and discuss what can be achieved with chin augmentation. It’s important that you voice all your wishes and concerns about the procedure at this time. Together, you will assess whether chin augmentation is right for you.
What is the chin implant recovery time?
The speed of healing varies with every patient. Most patients can expect to return to normal daily activities after one or two weeks. Exercise should be postponed until three weeks have passed. The persistence of visible scars also varies widely. You can expect the scars to begin fading away from about the three-month mark.
