Sometimes, just a bit more contour to certain facial features can have a positive effect on the entire look of the face. Chin implants can improve balance and definition to the chin, and can help offset the appearance of a prominent nose. With chin augmentation, Dr. Ali Sepehr can help you attain your goals in a procedure that requires minimal recovery time.
Please contact The OC Center for Facial Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation for a chin implant at our practice.
Facial implants come in a variety of materials depending on the target area.
In addition to improving the contours and appearance of a recessed chin, chin implants can provide better aesthetic balance for patients who have a prominent nose. The implants themselves are made of a silicone elastomer, and are placed in front of the jawbone through an incision made inside the mouth or underneath the chin. The entire procedure can be performed in less than an hour as an outpatient.
Chin augmentation can be performed as an individual procedure, or it can serve as a complement to rhinoplasty or other aesthetic enhancement options for a more complete makeover.
Facial Implants Recovery
Patients who undergo surgery for facial implants can expect some degree of swelling within the first week after the procedure; however, this should fade quickly after that and any discomfort can be controlled with medication. You may experience some difficulty talking and smiling for a few days after surgery, but this is only temporary. Many patients can resume normal daily activities within the first week; however, you should plan to be off work for at least one to two days.
