Chin Implant Surgery

Conveniently located to serve the areas of New York, NY

Chin implant surgery, also known as genioplasty, improves the contour of the chin, neck, and jawline. The procedure involves placement of an implant along the lower anterior jaw prominence to enhance the size and shape of the chin, thus creating a more natural balanced facial appearance. This procedure is a long-lasting solution to improve a weak or recessed chin.

Schedule Consultation

Individuals who are bothered by a weak chin or feel that their facial features lack proportion will benefit from chin surgery. Chin augmentation can help to improve facial harmony, correct a recessed chin, and improve definition of the neck and jawline.


Often times the procedure is performed under sedation. A small incision is made under the chin or in the mouth. An implant is usually placed in a pocket along the chin border and the incision is then closed with sutures.

Chin implants are small, solid devices made up of silicone or other synthetic materials and is contoured along the jawline. Chin implants vary in size and shape, and Dr. Wallach will work with you to find an implant that will achieve your desired aesthetic goals.


Chin implant surgery usually takes about an hour to complete. Following the procedure, the incision is closed with sutures and bandages may be placed. There is relatively little downtime needed, and those with desk jobs can typically return to work within seven days.

During recovery, patients will need to sleep with their head elevated for about 1-2 weeks after surgery to help control swelling and protect incisions. Strenuous activity or exercise can usually be resumed within 3-4 weeks. It is important to follow Dr. Wallach’s specific post-op instructions to help ensure a safe and quick recovery.


The fee for chin augmentation surgery is between $3500-$7000.

I’m so happy with the results from the Botox shots that Dr. Wallach performed on me. He spent a lot of time talking about the different fillers that would make my face look the most natural and youthful.
