I have a very small receding chin and would like to get a chin implant. What are my options? What are the implants made of?
A small receding chin is an excellent situation for placing a small chin implant. This can be done under local anesthesia and it takes about a half hour. It is a very safe and easy procedure and, certainly for small receding chins, it is an excellent way to get a very rewarding effect where there is very little to be noticed in the way of surgery. The result is perfectly natural looking and permanent. The implants are made out of a soft silicone material which is inert and perfectly safe and has been used for over 30 years in this particular area.
Once again, a small receding chin is an excellent indication for a very small silicone chin implant that is placed into a small incision under the chin and disappears. It takes approximately 30 minutes and is an extremely safe procedure.
