Why Chin Implants?
Often performed as a stand-alone procedure, chin implants are also used to further enhance other facial procedures, such as a rhinoplasty.
The chin tends to be underestimated in terms of the amount of natural improvement it can provide to the rest of your features, and chin implants can significantly help achieve a good facial balance.

Before & AfterView All
What Happens During the Procedure?
Dr. Funcik will begin by creating an incision either in the natural crease underneath your chin or inside of your mouth where the gum and lower lip meet. There is no scar when incisions are placed inside the mouth, and chin scars are generally only minimally visible. Dr. Funcik will create a pocket to position and stabilize the implant. The size of the implant will depend on your specific desired results. This requires a surgeon who truly understands facial anatomy, has an artistic eye, extreme attention to detail and possess great surgical skill. After placement of the implant, the incisions will be closed using stitches.
The duration of the procedure will depend on the extent of the work being done. Dr. Funcik grafts each implant individually, customizing each surgery depending on your personal contours and specifications.
