Before & After Chin Augmentation in Miami

*Individual results may vary

Types of Jawline and Chin Enhancement 

Chin Implant Augmentation

Chin implants are easy and quick to place, but we rarely use them at The Maercks Institute. This is because there are significant risks of early and late malposition and nerve damage, and chin implants erode the underlying bone and overlying soft tissues over time. This can lead to more complex reconstructive issues. Furthermore, chin implants are only able to correct small horizontal deficiencies. They cannot restore harmony to the unbalanced vertical thirds of the face. However, if a chin implant is used, Dr. Maercks will choose an alloplastic (often silicone rubber) prosthetic that matches your facial anatomy. 

Implant Free Genioplasty

Implant-free genioplasty (or “sliding genioplasty”) uses your own bone to change the projection of the chin. This procedure requires the surgical removal of bone, which is either slid forward or backward to achieve the desired results. It has the ability to adjust balance to the vertical thirds of the face by either reducing an overly prominent chin or by enhancing a chin that lacks projection. The implant-free genioplasty is Dr. Maercks’s preferred technique because it allows complete correction in any dimension, and doesn’t have implant-associated complications later on. 

Non-Surgical Jawline and Chin Fillers

Dermal fillers can be used to contour a more sculpted chin and/or jawline with Aesthetic Facial Balancing©, Dr. Maercks’s signature procedure. This highly customized service combines artistic vision, aesthetic sensibilities, and anatomical knowledge to non-surgically address a small chin or lax jawline. In a short and convenient treatment session, Dr. Maercks will strategically place hyaluronic acid-based filler around the area to achieve a 100% natural-looking appearance, without the downtime required by surgery.

“I underwent an operation [from Dr. Maercks] called a sliding genioplasty to correct for a weak chin. The outcome was a success, as I achieved a more balanced facial profile and gained more self-confidence.”  — RealSelf Reviewer
