WHAT IS A CHIN AUGMENTATION?




Chin Augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can change the shape and size of the chin. It can be done by inserting an implant under the skin, or by cutting and moving the chin bone. Chin augmentation can improve the appearance of the lower face, create a more balanced facial profile, and enhance the jawline.

ABOUT THE CHIN AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE



Here are two main types of chin augmentation procedures: Chin Implants and Sliding Genioplasty.

Chin Implants are synthetic materials that are shaped to fit the chin and inserted through a small incision under the chin or inside the mouth. The implant is secured to the bone with screws or sutures, and the incision is closed with stitches. Chin Implants can increase the projection, width, and height of the chin. Chin Implants are usually made of silicone, but some include Gore-Tex or Medpor1.

Sliding Genioplasty is a surgical technique that involves cutting the chin bone and moving it forward, backward, up, or down. The bone is then fixed in place with plates and screws, and the incision is closed with stitches. Sliding genioplasty can reduce or increase the size of the chin, as well as change its shape and angle. Sliding genioplasty is also called osseous genioplasty or chin reduction

CHIN AUGMENTATION RECOVERY



The recovery time for Chin Augmentation varies depending on the type of procedure, the extent of the surgery, and the individual healing process. In general, chin augmentation patients can expect some swelling, bruising, pain, and numbness in the chin area for the first few days or weeks after the surgery.

The surgeon may prescribe pain medication, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory drugs to help with the recovery. The stitches are usually removed after a week, and the swelling and bruising should subside within a month. Most patients can resume normal activities within a week or two but should avoid strenuous exercise, contact sports, and chewing hard foods for at least six weeks.

The final results of Chin Augmentation may take several months to become visible, as the implant or bone settles into place and the tissues heal.

ARE YOU THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR A CHIN AUGMENTATION?



Chin Augmentation is a personal decision that should be based on your own goals and expectations. You may be a good candidate for Chin Augmentation if you:


  • Are in good physical and mental health.
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcome.
  • Have a weak, recessed, or asymmetrical chin.
  • Have a large or prominent nose that you want to balance with your chin.
  • Have a double chin caused by a small chin bone.
  • Are not satisfied with your facial profile or harmony.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

At Ciplastic, the starting cost for a Chin Augmentation procedure is $2,700 usd. Your final cost will depend on your specific individual needs.

Chin Implants are considered permanent, as they do not degrade or wear out over time. However, Chin Implants can be removed or replaced if the patient is unhappy with the results, or if there are any complications with the implant. Chin Implants can also be affected by aging, weight changes, or trauma, which may alter the appearance of the chin over time. Therefore, some patients may need revision surgery to adjust or replace their chin implants in the future.

Choosing a surgeon is a significant decision that can affect the outcome and safety of your surgery. You should look for a surgeon who is board-certified in plastic surgery or facial plastic surgery and has extensive experience and training in Chin Augmentation.
