Who is a good candidate for a Chin Augmentation?
Most patients seek the chin augmentation procedure to improve their “weak” chin. An unbalanced, recessed chin bone can create the appearance of a double chin or simply result in poor visual harmony with the rest of your facial features.
As with all plastic surgery procedures, chin augmentation patients should be generally healthy overall. Chin augmentation candidates should also have a properly aligned bite; in some cases, the appearance of a weak chin is due to an underbite that should be treated by an orthodontist. Many of these patients can benefit from both orthodontic care and genioplasty, however. A thorough consultation with Dr. Ourian and cooperation with your orthodontist can determine whether you are a good candidate for a chin implant alongside your orthodontic care.
How is a Chin Augmentation performed?
Dr. Ourian’s signature Beverly Hills chin augmentation is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. First, a small incision is made either just below the chin or inside the patient’s mouth. Through this incision, space is made for the chin implant, which is then inserted into its proper position around the bone. Once the chin implant is properly in place, incisions are closed using sutures. The entire chin augmentation procedure typically lasts just an hour to complete.
What is a Chin Implant?
Chin implants are small medical devices that are added to the chin area to change its shape and size. Most chin implants are made of silicone, a material that is very safe for the body. Our Los Angeles chin implants are very customizable, and Dr. Ourian will help you determine the correct shape and size to achieve your cosmetic goals and suit your natural facial features.
What is Recovery Like after Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation surgery requires very little downtime. Most patients may return to work or other routine activities a few days after their procedure. Cold compresses and pain medication can be used to minimize discomfort during the first week of healing.
As you heal following your chin augmentation, you should be careful to sleep face-up with your head elevated for the first week or two following your surgery. This will help to reduce swelling and ensure that incisions heal properly. Dr. Ourian may also recommend that you follow a liquid-only diet for the first 1-2 days after your chin augmentation surgery.
Most patients will begin to see the final results of their chin implant surgery several months after the surgery. By three months, residual swelling should dissipate, and final results can be seen.
