Patients who have a small or receding chin may want to consider a chin enhancement. At ICLS the chin can be enhanced through liposuction or with surgery, using a chin implant. Less invasive options for chin enhancement include using CoolSculpting, Belkyra, a fat-dissolving injectable, or fillers such as body fat to enhance the chin’s appearance.
During your initial appointments, our surgeons will choose a particular implant that would be suitable for the level of correction required, as well as to maintain consistency with your facial shape and size. The implant is then inserted and anchored into place. The implant is made of a synthetic material that feels much like the natural tissue found in the chin. Submental or under the chin liposuction may also be recommended to enhance the final outcome, and to give better contour during this facial reconstruction.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does Belkyra treatment cost?
Pricing for Belkyra begins at $2,800 for the first two treatments. Typically, patients require anywhere from one to three treatments. To speak with a patient coordinator and schedule a consultation, contact us.
How does chin implant surgery work?
Chin implant surgery is done as a day surgery in our clinic, under local anaesthetic with sedation or general anaesthetic. A small incision is made inside the lower lip, which means no visible scarring or under the chin where, when healed, any scar will be undetectable.
What is a chin implant made of?
Your surgeon will choose a particular implant made of synthetic material to address your specific needs. The synthetic material can be silicone, Teflon or medpore. The implant will feel like the natural tissue found in the chin.
Do you do liposuction on the chin?
Chin, or submental liposuction, is a very common procedure. Our surgeons use VASERlipo System that uses a minimally invasive ultrasound device. This can be combined with additional skin tightening procedures for maximum effect. Contact ICLS to find out more.
Aftercare & Recovery
After a chin enhancement surgery, patients will go home with a small pressure dressing over the chin. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Swelling, tenderness, and possible local numbness gradually subside after a month or two.
