Benefits of Chin Augmentation
Chin implants augmentation surgery is designed to provide balance and make the chin appear more proportionate to the rest of the face. Weak or recessive chins can make the entire face appear fleshy, especially around the neck area. Weak chins tend to accentuate the nose, even when it is of a normal size. It gets worse if you have a large nose to begin with.
Chin enhancement surgery can help you regain sustainable harmony among your facial features. Nothing will appear fleshy or look out of place. Chin implant surgery improves the overall balance of the facial structure. Sometimes, chin augmentation and rhinoplasty surgeries are combined to create an ideal balance between the nose and chin.
Ideal Candidacy for Chin Augmentation
Suitable candidates for this cosmetic surgery procedure will have one or more of the following characteristics:
- Recessed chin
- Pointed or squared chin
- Prominent nose
- Fleshy neck
Chin augmentation may be recommended as an additional procedure for patients that are seeking cheek implants, rhinoplasty, or lip augmentation surgeries. Your cosmetic surgeon may recommend the procedure if you are seeking help with a poorly defined jaw or a large nose.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
Plastic surgeons usually recommend chin implants to enlarge a recessive chin. This is done to supplement the bone below the teeth, in front of the jaw. Chin implants are placed under the skin and offer a more permanent boost to the definition and strength of the chin. You can enjoy an attractive and proportionate natural-appearing chin with this procedure.
Chin augmentation procedures are usually performed as outpatient and can last from anywhere between 45 minutes and two hours. The duration depends on the complexity of a particular case and the number of additional procedures combined. Your surgeon will decide whether to administer local or general anesthesia.
An incision will be made on the inside of the mouth or below the chin. This will be between the gum and lower lip to insert the implant. Intra-mouth incisions have a higher risk of infection. However, it prevents external scarring. Your surgeon will position the implant in front of the jawbone.
They will then check to ensure the implant is properly balanced. In some cases, the surgeon may need to modify or adjust it to achieve the desired look. Sutures are used to keep the chin implant in place.
