A well-defined chin can significantly improve a person’s facial profile. Dr. Stein has over 26 years of experience performing plastic surgery procedures to enhance his patients’ faces and features. A chin implant may offer the contoured appearance you’re looking for.
What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation, or chin implant surgery, uses a silicone implant to add volume and definition to the chin. This procedure can strengthen a weak chin that doesn’t project forward enough and enhances the profile of the lower face.
Chin augmentation can be performed as part of a facelift or alone, depending on your aesthetic goals. Chin implants come in various shapes and sizes to match your unique facial structure.
What Results Will I See with a Chin Implant?
A strong chin greatly affects your appearance. Chin augmentation can define your facial profile and create more balanced features. It can also make your nose appear less prominent and decrease neck bulging. A chin implant can enhance your facial structure for a natural-looking, sculpted appearance.
The silicone implant is designed to last your entire life, making the results of chin augmentation permanent. If placed properly, it will not move or shift. Dr. Stein has perfected his technique to ensure your results are long-lasting and meet your aesthetic goals.
What to Expect with Chin Augmentation
During your consultation, Dr. Stein will discuss your aesthetic goals and the options available to help you decide if a chin implant is right for you.
The chin implant surgery takes 30-60 minutes under local anesthesia. Dr. Stein will make a small incision under your chin to insert the implant. Once it’s perfectly placed, he will suture the incision.
How Long is Recovery from Chin Augmentation?
After the procedure, the Stein Plastic Surgery staff will monitor your healing while you will rest for a few hours in a recovery room. A friend or family member can drive you home the same day.
Recovery from chin augmentation surgery usually lasts four to seven days. You may need to eat soft foods and liquids for a few days. Swelling, tenderness and bruising are normal for about a week after the procedure. Cold compresses and pain medication can lessen your discomfort, and you should be able to return to normal activities within two weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?
If you want to improve the shape and prominence of your chin for a more defined profile, chin augmentation may be the solution. During a consultation, Dr. Stein can help you determine the best option for your aesthetic goals.
