Short chin (Chin implants)

What are chin implants?

Short chins occur when there is impaired development at the end of the chin, making it appear relatively short. Due to the relatively short chin, the lips may appear as if they are protruding.

Chin implants are inserted through a minimal incision inside the mouth, resulting in no visible scars.

Taking into account personal preferences, it is possible to create a balanced and natural-looking chin by modifying the shape, angle, length, etc. of the end of the chin.​

Types of implants


Silicone is an FDA-approved implant that has been used for a very long time. It is easy to shape, and is thus conventionally used to create natural and beautiful curves.


​Gore-Tex is a soft, elastic material that adheres to the surrounding tissues naturally after insertion. Its advantage is the natural shape it brings.
