What is a Chin Augmentation?
A weak or receding chin is one that, when looking at a person’s profile, falls further back than the nose. A weak chin gives an overall unbalanced look to your face. It can make your nose appear larger, your neck appear thicker, or it may even seem to blend right into the neck, creating an almost “chinless” appearance. Chin implants will add definition to your jawline, creating a more attractive profile and an overall more physically fit appearance.
What Can I Expect During My Chin Augmentation Procedure?
Chin augmentation is an outpatient procedure that can be completed in about one hour’s time. An incision is made under the chin or inside the lower lip where scarring will be discreet, and an implant is inserted through the incision. Following the procedure, you will need to wear a small pressure dressing over your chin as prescribed by your doctor. As with any surgical procedure, recovery and possible side-effects tend to vary on a patient-to-patient basis. Some people do experience swelling, tenderness, or even numbness, but these symptoms will subside on their own over a period of anywhere from six to eight weeks, and can be managed through pain medication.
How is a Chin Augmentation Performed?
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia; however, during your consultation, you will be able to discuss if any other options are available to you for anesthesia and what you are most comfortable with. In some cases, patients who are considering rhinoplasty to correct the size of their nose may actually benefit from chin implants as a way to improve facial proportions. There are instances in which both procedures performed together will yield the best possible result. You and your doctor will discuss your concerns and your goals in order to determine which treatment or combination of treatments are right for you. You will also discuss your chin augmentation recovery process and cost.
