A woman is shown before and again 7 months after facelift combined with a chin implant. When a patient with a “weak chin” is requesting a facelift or a rhinoplasty, a chin implant is typically recommended at the same time to improve the subsequent facial balance and results.
A woman in her early 70’s who was unhappy with the aged appearance of her face is shown before and again, 1 year following a facelift with chin implant and dermabrasion to her upper lip. When the chin is “weak” and falls behind an imaginary line that is dropped down from the front of the upper and lower lips, a chin implant can improve the results, as seen here.
