Concerns with the size or shape of your chin can stop you from fully loving your appearance.
A chin implant can give you a stronger and more defined jawline, balance out facial features, and boost self-confidence.
Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Suzanne Yee is renowned throughout Little Rock, AR, for her chin augmentations.
Chin Dissatisfaction Can Be Truly Harmful
The chin can be a sensitive subject. A survey of nearly 2,000 American adults found that even a small amount of chin fat is linked with negative feelings and a desire to not be seen. Thankfully, chin implants can provide a look anyone could be proud of.
Chin Implants Offer Many Corrections
Chin augmentation is a type of chin surgery designed to strengthen and define your jawline. Appropriate for both men and women, a silicone implant in your chin can be an especially effective way to address:
- SHAPE: An implant can correct sloping or recessed chins, as well as chins that are excessively pointed or square.
- SIZE: A small chin may cause the dreaded “double chin.” An implant increases chin size to get rid of this issue.
- SYMMETRY: Facial asymmetry, such as an imbalance between chin and nose size, can be rectified through chin augmentation.

Little Rock Loves Dr. Yee
I was insecure about my recessed chin so I went to Suzanne Yee for a chin implant. Im so happy with my results. She took the time to choose the right implant for my face and size. She takes her time with you to ensure you have the best results! Thank you to the team for my lovely new chin!View on Google
Dr. Yee did a facelift, brow lift, chin implant and more almost 10 years ago for a family member and I am still in amazement at how great she looks. She is now in her 80s but looks late 60’s and better than she did in her 40’s. I have seen a lot of plastic surgery where I live in So.Cal. I often forget she had surgery until I look at old photos and am reminded how much better she looks even now and it’s all due to the surgery. Nothing about her looks fake or ‘off’.View on Google
Preparing For Surgery
Behavioral changes in the days and weeks prior to chin surgery increase the likelihood that your implant will last a lifetime. You should avoid blood thinners for two weeks prior to the procedure, not drink alcohol for two days, and prepare to fast for six hours before surgery.

What We Look For in a Chin Implant Candidate
Chin implant candidates should be in good overall health and be non-smokers. Fulfilling these two categories lessens the possibility of surgical complications and makes effective chin augmentation more likely. Candidates should also have realistic expectations, which Dr. Yee can help set.
Certain medical conditions may make chin augmentation the wrong choice. These include severe microgenia, lower lip protrusion, periodontal disease, or extreme malocclusion. Determining candidacy on your own can be confusing. Reach out to Dr. Yee and her expert Little Rock team for a consultation so they can evaluate whether or not a chin implant is the right procedure for you.
Envision Your Results
Chin implant results are permanent. You should start to enjoy the newly enhanced shape of your chin a few weeks after surgery. It may take approximately two months for all swelling to completely subside completely. Once it does, you should enjoy a well-defined jawline, an overall improved look, and a big boost of confidence.
All Surgeries Carry Some Risks That an Expert Surgeon Can Minimize
Chin augmentation is not without risk. In rare cases, this surgical procedure can result in scarring, damage to the facial nerves, and damage to the facial muscles. The implant can also shift if it is not placed properly.
Choosing a trusted, triple board-certified surgeon like Dr. Yee can help prevent harmful outcomes. She and her Little Rock team meticulously choose the right implant for each patient and are known for surgical precision that minimizes scarring.
Injectables Offer a Powerful Non-Surgical Alternative
Dr. Yee offers a host of non-surgical cosmetic treatments at her medical spa. Her soft tissue fillers are very popular for Little Rock patients who want to enhance chin shape and size without resorting to surgery. She has administered injectables for decades and can augment your chin with famed brands like Juvederm® and Radiesse®. She also offers KYBELLA®, which can help reduce the appearance of a double chin.
Patients who opt for injectables do not have to worry about receiving incisions or the risk of scarring. However, it is important to note that unlike a chin implant, the results from fillers are temporary. These non-surgical improvements typically last for 9 to 12 months before more fillers are necessary to maintain results.
Combine Procedures for a Drastic Change
Sometimes, Dr. Yee may recommend combining chin augmentation with another procedure. Doing so can achieve more dramatic results and more effectively balance the proportions of your entire face.
Chin Implant + Rhinoplasty
One common combination is a chin implant with rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is performed to reshape the nose. This procedure can be used to straighten the nose, remove a bump on the nasal bridge, or refine the tip of the nose.
Chin Implant + Cheek Augmentation
Another popular pairing is a chin implant with cheek augmentation. Dr. Yee can restore a youthful look and symmetrical balance through non-surgical cheek augmentation or with the use of cheek implants.
Chin Implant + Neck Lift + Neck Liposuction
If getting rid of your double chin once and for all is your primary concern, you may consider a chin implant with a neck lift and neck liposuction. Lift and liposuction procedures tighten neck skin and muscles while removing excess fat. They can also remove a “turkey wattle” as well as vertical neck bands.
