Chin Implant in Danville

Conveniently located to serve Danville, San Ramon, Dublin, Walnut Creek, and the entire San Francisco Bay Area.


A refined, stately, or confident chin creates a sense of balance in the face. When the chin is weak or sits back on our face it tends to make the nose look larger, and when prominent, the nose looks smaller. The chin and nose are on opposite sides of a seesaw. An implant brings the chin forward, creating the proper balance and definition to the face. When the chin sits in the appropriate spot, the face is more balanced and natural.

Surgery Details and Recovery

Recovery time for this surgery is approximately one week and is often performed in coordination with other (facial) surgical procedures.


After liposuction under the chin, the implant is placed under the periosteum (a specialized connective tissue that covers bones) of the jawbone, where it holds tight and “shrink-wraps” the implant to the bone. This procedure creates a stronger chin, is relatively straightforward, is also easy to undergo, and produces positive results.
