Chin Augmentation Procedure

Plastic surgeons use implants to emphasize your face. The implants will create a harmonic appearance of your face allowing you to feel better about yourself. There are many types of implants made of different material. They can emphasize the jaw line, the checks and create a better proportions between the chin and the checks.

The surgeons use implants to achieve a better balance and create a younger look. Chin augmentation also called mentoplasty. The operation aimed to shape the chin by making it smaller or bigger. A larger chin can be created by an implant insertion or by surgery, which elongates the lower jaw. Smaller chin is made by reducing the size of the lower jaw. In many cases the surgeon will recommend mentoplasty for patients undergoing nose surgery in order to fit the new nose to the face, creating more harmonic appearance. When looked from the side the nose size should fit the chin.

The implant insertion may last from 30 minutes to one hour. The surgeon will design the implant that fits your chin and then inserted it to a "pocket" located in front of the chin. A small cut for the insertion can be made inside the mouse near the lower lip or from the outside just below the chin. After the procedure the chin is bandaged using plasters to prevent swelling and implant movement. Bandages also help prevent uncomfortable felling. The stitches can be removed after 5-7 days. In case the cut is made inside the mouse melting stitches are used and there is no need to remove them. The surgery can be done using local anesthetics with sedative drugs and sometimes with general anesthesia.

Every operation has its ricks. The implant may move from the original place. Then you need to undergo additional procedure to replace it. Infection is rare, it can be treated with antibiotics and in some cases the infected implant will be removed and replaced by another one.

After the surgery there is a strange felling around the chin. It is normal to fell difficulties in talking, smiling and eating. There may be blue marks around the chin and neck. It is advisable not to participate in activities which may harm the chin. The surgeon will guide you regarding dental hygiene and eating.

The final results may take weeks and even month to notice, therefore you must be patient.
