Chin Implant Surgery
If you have a small chin, it can cause the rest of your facial features to become more prominent. This can distort your appearance and make you feel self-conscious. A receding chin can also create issues with speaking and eating. Chin implant surgery can give your facial features a natural-looking balance and help you feel more confident.
Chin Implant Procedure
The surgical procedure for a chin implant is done using general anesthesia. A small incision is made either underneath the chin or inside the mouth. Through this incision, the cosmetic surgeon creates space for the chin implant and fits it around the chin bone. Once the implant is in place, the area is sutured with thread to hold them in place. The procedure takes a little over an hour to complete.
Some swelling and bruising may occur after surgery, which can be relieved with ice packs and over-the-counter medications. You can resume normal activities in about a week. Full recovery can take up to six months. The implants are made from materials designed to not break down over time, so results are permanent. One of the most common complications following surgery is the implant shifting out of place, causing inflammation and discomfort. Chin implant surgery may be combined with other cosmetic procedures to deliver greater definition and contour.
