Chin Implant

New York NY Chin Implants Doctor

The chin is a facial feature that adds to or detracts from a person’s facial balance. The ideal appearance of the chin is that it defines the lower portion of the face by creating a distinct separation between the jawline and the neck. For some, there is an imbalance of the face caused by a small chin or one that is set back beneath the mouth. This imbalance causes many people to feel self-conscious about the appearance of their face and to seek a solution that will help them feel and look more attractive. A chin implant is a surgical procedure done to reshape or enhance the size of the chin.

Chin implant surgery is a popular procedure among both men and women. In order for the face to have balance, the chin should protrude proportionally with the nose. Because the nose protrudes from the face, the chin should also protrude in order to balance out the facial features. A weak or receding chin can cause a facial imbalance, and as a person ages, it can also cause the chin to “disappear” into the neck.

Chin implants are inserted on top of the chin bone so that the chin will extend out from the face. Because the implant is placed directly on top of the chin bone, it gives a very natural appearance and feels just like part of the chin. Once the surgical site is healed, the implant itself will be indistinguishable from the natural bone in the face. While this procedure is a relatively simple procedure, it can have a dramatic effect on the overall appearance of a person’s face and profile, creating symmetry and balance for the entire face.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
