what is...

A Chin Implant

Chin implants are a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the prominence and definition of the chin, creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing facial profile. Ideal for those with a naturally recessed chin or those seeking a more sculpted appearance, chin implants can significantly improve facial harmony.

Chin Implant


  1. Improved facial balance: Creates a more proportionate facial profile by enhancing the prominence and definition of the chin.
  2. Improved jawline definition: A more defined and sculpted jawline that contributes to a stronger, more attractive overall facial structure.
  3. Improved speech: In some cases, patients who receive chin implants may notice a subtle improvement in their speech, especially if their previous chin position affected their enunciation or projection.
  4. Compatibility with other procedures: Can be combined with other facial procedures, such as rhinoplasty or neck liposuction.
  5. Psychological benefits: The boost in self-esteem and confidence gained from a chin implant can have a positive impact on various aspects of life.

How do Chin Implants work?

The procedure typically takes 1-2 hours and is performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the patient's preference and the extent of the surgery. Incisions are carefully placed in inconspicuous locations, such as under the chin or inside the mouth, to minimize visible scarring and achieve the most natural-looking results.

Dr. Robert Guida takes a highly personalized approach to each chin implant procedure, ensuring that the surgery is tailored to the individual patient's needs and goals.

What is the recovery period for a chin implant look like?

After the chin implant procedure, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, which will gradually subside within 1-2 weeks. Dr. Guida's team will provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to promote a smooth recovery process. Most patients can return to work and resume normal activities within 1 week following surgery, although strenuous activities should be avoided for at least 2-3 weeks.

"I put my trust in Dr. Guida and I couldn’t be happier with my rhinoplasty & septoplasty experience and results with Dr.Guida and his staff. My results came out naturally beautiful while also allowing me to breathe correctly for the first time in my life. Thank you again!" - Adriana Pinto
