chin determines how you look in your profile! The chin is a very important
facial feature, since it gives a definitive shape to face. A weak or receding
chin makes a normal nose appear large and an already prominent nose seems even
larger. It may also give the appearance of a 'fleshy' neck. On the other hand,
a too prominent chin may give the appearance of having too small of a nose or
otherwise throwing the face off balance. Chin Implant is the surgical use of
implants to bring the chin into better balance with your other facial features.
WHAT IS CHIN IMPLANT SURGERY?
Implant Surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape
the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the
bone. Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient
having nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the
chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Chin surgery helps
provide a harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better
about the way you look.
HOW IS CHIN IMPLANT SURGERY
Implant Surgery also called Meatoplasty. The operation aimed to shape the chin
by making it smaller or bigger. Most chin implant procedures are performed on
an outpatient basis. The surgery can be performed in a dedicated surgery
center, a hospital, or in a surgery suite at your plastic surgeon's office. A
larger chin can be created by an implant insertion or by surgery, which
elongates the lower jaw. Smaller chin is made by reducing the size of the lower
jaw. When looked from the side the nose
size should fit the chin.The implant insertion may last from 30 minutes to one
hour. The surgeon will design the implant that fits your chin and then inserted
it to a "pocket" located in front of the chin. A small cut for the
insertion can be made inside the mouse near the lower lip so no scar will be
visible. After the procedure the chin is bandaged using plasters to prevent
swelling and implant movement. Bandages also help prevent uncomfortable
felling. The stitches can be removed after 5-7 days. In case the cut is made
inside the mouse melting stitches are used and there is no need to remove them.
The surgery can be done using local anesthetics with sedative drugs and
sometimes with general anesthesia.
dermal fillers also can be injected for chin augmentation but it has to be
repeated after 1 to 2 years.
