Your jaw shape is largely inherited and does not change once it matures. A jaw implant offers a safe, lasting way to enhance the shape of your jaw. These implants fit your jawbone and provide a sculpted, firm-looking jawline. Strengthening the jawline can also improve the definition between the jaw and neck, improving the appearance of jowls.
What is a Jaw Implant?
A jaw implant procedure places silicone implants under the skin and muscles of the jaw. This implant provides a natural-looking shape and definition that can boost confidence tremendously. A jaw implant improves the shape of your lower face and can help you look younger and more self-assured.
How Much Does a Jaw Implant Cost?
Consider the cost of a jaw implant a lifetime investment since most people never need to have these implants replaced. The price of a jaw implant varies depending on several factors, including:
- Your location
- Your provider’s skill and experience
- The details of your procedure
Most jaw implants cost between $2,000 and $4,000. Dr. Farole is a specialist in facial cosmetic surgery with a deep understanding of facial anatomy. His knowledge and experience let him place jaw implants in the most secure, natural-looking position for superior results.
How Do I Prepare for a Jaw Implant?
Dr. Farole and his team will give instructions to help you prepare for your procedure. Typical instructions for pre-surgery preparation include:
- Get any bloodwork as instructed
- Stop taking blood-thinning medications like aspirin and ibuprofen
- Discuss all supplements you take and stop them if instructed
- Avoid alcohol use before the procedure
- Stop smoking for several weeks before and after surgery
- Arrange for someone to take you home afterward
- Stock your house with soft foods you will enjoy
Preparing for your recovery will make the process smoother and more comfortable. Arrange for several days to rest comfortably and let yourself heal.

What Should I Expect During a Jaw Implant Procedure?
Placing a jaw implant requires skill and knowledge of facial anatomy. Dr. Farole uses an incision hidden inside the mouth to create space for the implant. He places the implant along the jawbone to enhance your jaw’s natural shape. This silicone form works like other medical implants, and reactions are rare.
What is Recovery Like After a Jaw Implant?
You can expect some swelling and bruising after your jaw implant for several days. We recommend soft foods as you heal. You will have dissolvable sutures inside your mouth that disappear as the incision heals. You can resume your usual activities after seven to ten days, but your full results can take a few weeks to develop as swelling improves.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Jaw Implant?
Good candidates for a jaw implant want to add shape and definition to the jaw area. Most healthy adults can have a jaw implant. The procedure uses the same type of silicone implant used in many other parts of the body. You should not have a jaw implant while pregnant or if you have certain medical conditions.
