Mentoplasty (Chin Implant)

View our Plastic Surgery Before and After Gallery >

One of the best ways to balance your facial features and give yourself a strong, well-defined profile is through mentoplasty, or chin implants. Dr. Jacob can reshape your chin to improve your jawline and help you feel better and more confident about your appearance.

A small or weak chin can exaggerate the size and defects of your nose and often your neckline. Dr. Jacob, a fellow of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology / Head and Neck Surgery, will insert implants to augment your jawline/chin and strengthen your profile. He can make subtle changes in your chin size or shape that enhance your profile, much like rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) or a facelift can.

In fact, Dr. Jacob often recommends mentoplasty be done in combination with rhinoplasty to achieve better facial proportions and more balanced features. Or he may recommend additional submental liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue and redefine chin and neckline areas. If projection of your chin is the only defect in your profile, then chin augmentation alone will correct the problem.

Dr. Jacob performs surgery exclusively on the face, neck, and head in his New Orleans-area facial plastic surgery practice. Trust his expertise when he recommends the procedures he believes will help you achieve the most natural looking results.
