Chin Augmentation in Dallas and Allen, TX
Chin augmentation is a relatively minor procedure in which the prominence of an underdeveloped jaw is accentuated with a solid silicone chin implant. Chin augmentation is often done in conjunction with rhinoplasty since a balance between the nose and chin are important to facial beauty.
Am I the Right Candidate for Chin Augmentation?
If you have a weak, receding, or asymmetrical chin, this procedure may be a suitable plastic surgery solution. Some patients seek this procedure after a disfiguring accident or to adjust a birth defect.
Good candidates have healthy teeth and a normal bite. Both men and women can benefit from chin enhancement surgery. Candidates should not smoke, be in good overall health, and have realistic expectations for their chin augmentation results.
How Is Chin Augmentation Performed?
Chin augmentation is typically an outpatient surgical procedure. Your surgeon inserts a firm, rubbery silicone implant in your chin, above the bone. The incision is made either inside your mouth or under your chin.
If performed on its own, local anesthesia with light sedation is used. When combined with other cosmetic procedures, you may be placed under general anesthesia.
Chin implant augmentation takes about one hour.
What Is Recovery From Chin Augmentation Like?
You will be advised to keep your head elevated and sleep facing up for two weeks after your procedure. You may need to stick to a liquid-only diet for a couple of days.
Pain and downtime are minimal. Pain medication and cold compresses ease most discomfort. You can return to light activities in about seven days and strenuous activities in about three to four weeks.
When Will I See the Results From My Chin Augmentation Surgery?
There will be initial swelling that distorts the appearance of your chin. However, you will have a better idea of the final results by the end of the first month.
Final results are visible in a few months.
Frequently Asked Questions About Chin Augmentation
What procedures can be performed alongside a chin augmentation?
The cosmetic procedures you and your surgeon decide upon will depend on several factors:
- Your primary complaints about your appearance
- Desired results
- Facial anatomy
- A holistic approach to the balance and harmony of your features and facial proportions
Often, patients are not sure what type of plastic surgery is suitable to attain their aesthetic goals. You may be unhappy with the size of your nose, the shape of your face, or what your neck looks like. A skilled and experienced board-certified surgeon like Dr. Pollock can help you identify the specific look you are searching for and choose how to best achieve it.
How long will my chin augmentation results last?
Silicone chin implant augmentation is a permanent surgical procedure. The results are expected to last throughout the rest of your life. This is different from injectable dermal fillers—a temporary non-surgical chin augmentation alternative that lasts about nine to 14 months.
