A weak or under-defined chin can result in a less than ideal profile. There are many ways to improve your appearance, but chin implants may be your best option. With 26 years of experience and double certification in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Stein performs natural-looking chin augmentation procedures to help many patients reach their cosmetic goals.
What is Chin Augmentation at Stein Plastic Surgery?
At Stein Plastic Surgery, Dr. Stein adds volume and definition to your chin through silicone implants. During an easy-to-understand consultation, Dr. Stein discusses aesthetic goals, silicone type, size, and shape with patients. Once you decide on your implant, schedule a day for the procedure.
The surgery may take between 30 and 60 minutes under local anesthesia. An IV sedative is used to help you relax during the procedure. Dr. Stein makes a small incision on the crease under your chin to slip the implant over the jawbone. Once satisfied with the placement, Dr. Stein sutures the incision closed and applies the bandages.
You will be sent to a peaceful recovery room while Stein Plastic Surgery’s expert staff monitor your healing. After a few hours, a friend or family member can drive you home for recovery.
