      Chin Implant

      The chin is an essential aspect of the face, and a person may desire a chin implant to achieve a more defined or prominent contour of the chin to improve his or her appearance.

       

      • Chin implants are made of a safe, pliable material and come in a range of sizes and shapes to fit a person’s facial structure and the plastic surgeon’s objective.
      • Chin implants are just one way for a plastic surgeon to improve the appearance of a person’s chin. Other procedures include moving or reshaping the bones and using liposuction to remove excess fat in the area.
      • Visible scarring is minimal in chin implant surgery since the surgeon makes the incisions either under the chin or inside the mouth.
      • It is important for plastic surgeons to approach cosmetic procedures of the face in a holistic manner, considering the balance and harmony between each area of the face and its proportions.

      Making the Decision for Chin Surgery

      If you are considering chin surgery, here’s what to expect when you meet with a plastic surgeon:

      • During a preliminary consultation, the surgeon will take a thorough medical history, as well as assess the person’s mental and emotional attitudes toward the surgery. A positive attitude and realistic expectations are crucial to the success of the surgery.
      • The surgeon or a staff member will take photographs so the surgeon can study the person’s facial features and chin.
      • The surgeon will carefully assess the person for surgical risks, especially those related to conditions such as high blood pressure, a tendency to scar, smoking and any deficiency in blood clotting.
      • If a person, in consultation with the surgeon, elects to proceed with surgery, the surgeon will describe:
      • The type of technique most likely to get a good result
      • The type of anesthesia recommended
      • The surgical facility where the procedure will take place
      • Any additional procedures recommended to optimize results

      Understanding Chin Surgery

      Each patient’s individual needs and features are considered before their surgery. Here is a general overview of the procedure:

      • Once the person is under anesthesia, the surgeon begins by making an incision either in the natural crease line just under the person’s chin or inside the mouth where gum and lower lip meet.
      • By gently stretching this tissue, the surgeon creates a space where an implant can be inserted. This implant, made of synthetic material that feels much like natural tissue normally found in the chin, is available in a variety of sizes and shapes. This allows custom fitting of the implant to the configurations of the patient’s face.
      • After implantation, the surgeon uses fine sutures to close the incision. When the incision is inside the mouth, no scarring is visible. If the incision is under the chin, the scar is usually imperceptible.

      What to Expect After Chin Surgery

      • Immediately after surgery, the surgeon usually applies a dressing that will remain in place for two to three days. The person will experience some tenderness, and the surgeon will prescribe medications to help with post-operative discomfort.
      • Chewing will probably be limited immediately after chin surgery, and the person may need to follow a diet of liquids and soft foods for a few days after the procedure. Most patients feel a stretched, tight sensation after the surgery, but this usually subsides in a week.
      • After approximately six weeks, most swelling will be gone, and the person can start to see the results of the procedure. The surgeon may recommend avoiding rigorous activity for the first few weeks after surgery. Normal activity can be resumed after approximately 10 days.

       

      Follow-Up Care

      Follow-up care is vital to monitor healing. Any unusual bleeding, swelling, fever or other symptoms should be reported to the surgeon immediately. It is essential that patients keep all follow-up appointments with their surgeon.

      Other Cosmetic Surgery for the Chin

      Chin implants are just one way a plastic surgeon can help a person achieve a more attractive chin and profile. Here are some others:

      Mandibular advancement: Moving the bone of the chin forward to improve the appearance of a receding chin involves the surgeon making an incision inside the mouth and repositioning the facial bones. The procedure, depending on the extent of the work, takes from less than an hour to approximately three hours.

      Chin reduction surgery: The surgeon makes incisions either in the mouth or under the chin, then sculpts the bone to a more pleasing size or shape.

      Liposuction:Removing excess fatty tissue below the chin can help redefine the chin, profile or neckline.

      Facelift or neck lift: These procedures can improve the look of the chin by tightening the muscles of the neck.

      Orthognathic (jaw) surgery: When severely crooked teeth or birth defects in the structure of the jaw itself are contributing to a receding or malformed chin, surgery of the jaw can improve the form and function of the lower face and greatly enhance appearance.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What is chin augmentation?

      Chin augmentation with implants can enhance a person's weak chin or create symmetry or an aesthetically pleasing shape within the facial structure. Implants can also be used for reconstruction in cases involving birth defects or trauma-related incidents.

       

       

       

      What are chin implants made from?

      Chin implants are made primarily of a soft, rubbery, flexible material such as solid silicone that is inserted through a small incision under your chin. The material is biocompatible, meaning that your body will not react adversely to it.

       

       

       

      What does a typical chin augmentation consultation entail?

      During your surgical consultation for chin augmentation, you should discuss the reasons you're interested in a chin augmentation, as well as your goals. The surgeon will then explain what can be achieved realistically with chin augmentation. He or she will take into account your facial dimensions and shape, and make recommendations about the type, size and placement of the chin implant. The surgeon will also go over the risks of chin augmentation surgery, what you can expect during recovery, and the cost of the procedure.

       

       

       

      How is chin augmentation surgery performed?

      The chin augmentation operation is usually performed using light sleep anesthesia or, if combined with other procedures, general anesthesia. This procedure takes from one to two hours to perform. The incisions will be placed as inconspicuously as possible, either inside the mouth (intraorally) or under the chin (extraorally). The implant may be screwed into the jawbone to attach it firmly and permanently.

       

       

       

      What is a sliding genioplasty?

      A sliding genioplasty, or chin advancement, is a surgical procedure that entails cutting a piece of bone from your lower jaw, sliding it forward and reattaching it to the jawbone. The incision for a sliding genioplasty is made within the lip.

       

       

       

      What should I expect postoperatively?

      Immediately following your chin augmentation surgery you may feel some mild to moderate discomfort which should be controlled with prescription painkillers from your surgeon or approved over-the-counter painkillers. Due to the increased volume of the implant and natural swelling from the surgery, your chin may feel tight; this should abate within two weeks. Your surgeon may apply tape to hold the implant in place and control swelling after surgery. If your stitches are inside your mouth, your diet may be limited to soft foods and you may be required to rinse with mouthwash for several days following the procedure. Your new chin should be fully apparent in about three or four weeks.

       

       

       

      When will the sutures be taken out, and does this hurt?

      The sutures will be removed in approximately three to five days. The removal itself should not hurt, although you may experience some discomfort when your surgeon feels around for the implant through your swollen facial tissues.

       

       

       

      Will there be scarring?

      There may be scarring. The degree of chin augmentation scarring depends on the incision technique used. If the incisions were made inside your mouth, the scars will not be visible. If external incisions were made, they should be hidden under the chin.

       

       

       

      How much downtime is required for this procedure?

      You can expect to resume regular activities in about one to two weeks, and can usually return to work within a week.

       

       

       

      What are the risks of chin augmentation?

      There is a chance of hematoma (blood pooling), seroma (build-up of fluid under the skin), numbness from nerve damage, hyperpigmentation (permanent discolorations), implant shifting, asymmetry, and general dissatisfaction with the final results. Some complications may require revision surgery.

       

       

       

      How long does a chin implant last?

      The silicone chin implants are made to last your lifetime, especially if the implants are the harder variety and are screwed into place.
