While the availability of high-quality soft tissue fillers, such as Juvéderm and Radiesse, has made them less common, some patients still benefit from placement of a silicone rubber Chin Implant or other Facial Implant.

Dr. Nachbar is a truly gifted and kind, compassionate doctor which is rare to find both in a surgeon. My results were amazing!!! 10 stars."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Apr 06, 2016
Chin implants are, for example, commonly performed along with other surgery, such as rhinoplasty or facelift, or they can be performed on their own. Especially for younger patients, for whom many filler procedures would need to be done, and who may want more fullness in the chin area, an implant may be the best approach.
Chin implant can be placed through an incision inside the mouth, avoiding an external scar.
Other implants, such as cheek implants, may be useful, but most patients use one of the denser fillers, such as Radiesse, to improve their cheek contour.
Dr. Nachbar uses both fillers and facial implants, depending on the situation. When a chin implant is to be done, Dr. Nachbar does the procedure in the surgery center under general anesthesia, for the best patient comfort and safety. Because an incision within the mouth is used, the safety of a tube to protect the airway from fluids that may pass into the mouth is beneficial.
Cheek implants are more rarely done, because use of injectable fillers are very effective in the cheekbone ("zygomatic") area.
