The Surgery

Chin Implants

Dr. Zuckerman can help you correct the aesthetic effects of a recessed chin or a prominent nose. They can be put into better balance with chin implants (chin augmentation). Implants made of silicone elastomer are placed through an incision made underneath the chin or inside the mouth. The implant is positioned in front of the jawbone, and can ultimately give the entire face an improved facial contour. Chin implant surgery is often performed on an outpatient basis and completed in about an hour or less. Dr. Zuckerman also performs Osteo Geniaplasty surgery, which corrects a recessed chin without using an implant.

Facial implants procedures can be performed at one of Dr. Zuckerman's accredited surgical operating rooms located in midtown Manhattan. Certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), these fully-equipped operatories adhere to the highest standards of care.


Recovery time will vary based on which type of facial implantation is performed by Dr. Zuckerman, but generally involve only a few days of minimal activity. Dr. Zuckerman may recommend up to 2-4 weeks before strenuous activity may be fully resumed.


Dr. Zuckerman is a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, and his team will do everything possible to minimize risks. His goal is to see that your surgery and recovery process is safe, smooth, and effective, overseen by only the most experienced and well-trained medical professionals.
