Most people who could benefit from a Chin Augmentation don’t even know it – because they never see themselves in profile. Whether in a mirror or in a picture, we typically view ourselves only face-forward. Many patients elect chin surgery after they see a photograph that caught them in profile.When the chin is undersized, it affects the entire face. It makes the nose look larger and more conspicuous.
A double chin will result because the jaw is too short. The procedure, Chin Augmentation, is quick and the results are permanent. It can enlarge and improve the contour of almost any undersized or receding chin.
In this procedure, we make a small incision inside the mouth and create a small pocket just in front of the chin bone. A special pre-formed chin implant is precisely placed in this pocket where it will remain firmly in position. This incision is closed with a few absorbable sutures, so they don’t have to be removed.
It can be done under local anesthesia or with sedation on a day care basis. There is some soreness after this procedure, but the medications provided will control it. You’ll be up and around the same day as your surgery and back to work in just a few days. This procedure provides immediate and effective results that can last a lifetime.
