Chin augmentation (Mentoplasty) using an implant is a cosmetic enhancement procedure intended to provide more definition along the jaw and upper neck region. Many patients thinking about chin implant surgery have are concerned that their chin appears too weak or underdeveloped.
A Chin Implant is performed by making a small incision within the mouth and placing a silicon implant directly on top of the chin. The surgery can also be done through and incision below the chin. Some individuals undergo chin implant surgery in conjunction with other facial surgery (such as rhinoplasty).
The results of the chin implant are very impressive as it adds significantly to the contour and profile of the face. In addition, by making the chin larger it makes the nose appear relatively smaller and gives length to the entire face, all of which significantly enhance facial appearance.
Chin implant surgery is normally done under local anesthesia, with or without sedation, unless it is done concurrently with other procedures. Surgery is done on an outpatient basis and takes approximately 1-2 hours. Recovery is complete by 1-2 weeks.
