When to Consider a Chin Implant
So, how will this option work for you? If you want to determine your candidacy for chin implants, then you need to ask yourself a few questions:
- Are you dissatisfied with the look of your chin?
- Are you in good physical health?
- Do you have realistic expectations of what surgery can achieve?
- Do you live a healthy lifestyle?
If answered yes to these questions, then you are a candidate for chin implants. A healthy person with realistic results in mind should have no problem getting chin implants put in place. It is important to consider all of these things carefully before undergoing surgery, so you know that it is what you really want to do. Changing your chin with this surgery can fix:
- Small chin
- Weak chin
- Facial balance
If you have not reached physical maturity yet, it is best to wait before having such procedure performed. Growth will change the shape of your face and can shift things around into awkward positions. When done properly, chin implants will define your face by bringing better balance, proportion and creating more distinct features. If you meet the listed qualifications, then you are a good candidate for chin implants and should schedule a consultation with Dr. Bared.

Implants are then inserted and adjusted accordingly, to give you the results you desire. After they are firmly implanted, the doctor will close up the surgery site.
