Chin Augmentation or Genioplasty with Chin Implants help to build out a recessive chin by inserting an implant over the chin bone. A weak chin makes the neck appear fleshy. It accentuates the size of a normal nose and makes a large nose seem especially big.
Chin enlargement through chin implant surgery brings the facial features into harmony and balances the overall facial structure. Chin implants can also correct jaw asymmetry or irregularity for people with traumatic or genetic defects.
Overall it is an ideal surgical procedure to enhance a person’s weak chin or create symmetry or an aesthetically pleasing shape within the facial structure.
How is chin augmentation surgery performed?
The chin augmentation surgery is usually performed using light sleep anesthesia or, if combined with other procedures, general anesthesia. This procedure takes around 1-2 hours to complete.
The incisions will be placed as inconspicuously as possible, either inside the mouth (intraorally) or under the chin (extraorally). The implant may be screwed into the jawbone to attach it firmly and permanently.
How long is the recovery period from chin augmentation surgery and when can I resume my work?
You can expect to resume regular activities in about one to two weeks, and can usually return to work within a week.
When will I be able to see the results & how long will they last?
The results are immediate, although you may think that the implant is too big at first glance because of the initial swelling in the operated area. But with time the swelling will go away and you’ll be able to see the actual results.
The silicone chin implants are made to last your lifetime, especially if the implants are the harder variety and are screwed into place.
Can I combine other facial procedures to enhance overall look of my face?
Definitely, you can combine chin implant surgery with other facial surgery, such as Rhinoplasty, Cheek Implants. If you would like to look younger, you may be interested in a Facelift or Blepharoplasty procedures.
