To enhance and define the facial-chin contour and jawline.
CHIN AUGMENTATION: Incisions are made in a crease under the chin and a pocket is created to help the implant rest on the bone. The implant is inserted and secured with sutures.
Create more definition and projection for a weak chin, improve the overall facial profile, draw attention to the eyes for a more elegant appearance, and increase the strength of facial features.
A sensory nerve in the chin may be affected, resulting in temporary, or very rarely, permanent numbness of the lip.
Very rare incidence of infection.
Implant malplacement or displacement, which may rarely require revision surgery.
CHIN AUGMENTATION: Takes approximately 1,5 hour, or 45 minutes when performed in conjunction with other procedures such as rhinoplasty.
After same-day discharge, swelling and discoloration are resolved by 1 week to 10 days.
Normal activities can be resumed soon after and full contact sports can be re-introduced after 6 weeks.
