While the placement of a chin implant can restore facial harmony and proportion, the aesthetics of the face may be improved in several ways. Making your nose look smaller is just one of the benefits of this type of implant. Chin implants can also improve the contour of the jawline and provide additional depth to the neckline. You may have considered a chin implant or chin augmentation, and have some questions regarding the procedure as it is done at Youthful Reflections.
What Are Its Benefits of this Implant?
This type of implant can increase the forward projection of the chin or can provide augmentation of the prejowl sulcus (depression between the chin and jowl). In some cases, it can do both.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
It typically requires about 30 to 45 minutes for the procedure. The procedure is performed using local anesthesia with, or without, light sedation.
Can It Be Performed With Other Facial Surgery?
Yes, it can be performed in conjunction with a face/neck lift for improvement of the contour of the neckline, or in conjunction with a rhinoplasty for improvement of the relationship between the nose and chin.
When Can I Return to Work?
Most patients who have had the procedure return to their normal activities in approximately 5 – 7 days. Bruising and swelling, the visible signs of surgery, usually resolve between one and two weeks.
Exact cosmetic results may vary, as each patient has a unique circumstance.
Some of the other procedures available, in addition to the chin area, include:
- Upper eyelid lift
- Lower eyelid lift
- Fat transfer
- Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing
Non- Surgical Facial Procedures
- Fillers and injectables
- Youthful Reflections Peri-Oral Rejuvenation
