Is There a Chin Implant to Make Your Chin Longer?

Absolutely - in fact, longer (or more forward) is one the key reasons to get a chin implant. Fewer people need a wider chin, unless they want to masculinize the face. Lengthening the chin (to the proper proportion with the lower lip and rest of the face) can make your nose look better, and even improve wrinkles and fat under the neck. I'd suggest meeting with an experienced facial plastic surgeon for an individual consultation. Good luck!

He or she will be able to morph a digital photo, and give you an idea of what the final result may look like. Please feel free to ask me any additional questions you have regarding the procedure.

Chin Implants To Increase Length

+1

The answer is yes. There are wide variety of chin implants from different manufacturers that can be used to make your chin longer. I prefer silastic implants as Dr. Portuese pointed out. They come in sufficient sizes and shapes to accommodate most patients' desires. Often times digital imaging can help in the decision making process when it comes to chin augmentation using an implant.

Implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Sizers can be used to give you an impression of the final result. Implants can also be custom carved or stacked. Another option is the use of fillers.

chin implants can elongate and widen your chin if indicated.  They are made of soft silicone and usually placed through a small external skin incision under the chin.  There are most complicated surgeries available including autogenous bone grafts.
