Having a well-defined and strong chin is an important part of having an aesthetically-pleasing face. Many people worry that they suffer from a recessed or “weak” chin. Having chin implants can help balance your facial features. It is a permanent solution to chin reduction that can restore self-esteem.
How Implants Help with Chin Reduction
Chin implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, allowing us to find the perfect one for your needs. These solid implants are made from a biocompatible material, typically silicone. This is a good material because it will not only look natural, but it will also feel natural. Provided you do not injure the area, your results with a chin implant are permanent.
This is a simple procedure. It is done on an outpatient basis, allowing you to return home the same day. Unless you are combining this procedure with other surgeries, it should take less than an hour to complete. The procedure can be combined with rhinoplasty or a facelift in order to enhance your results. If you are looking to create a more defined jawline, or keep your profile balanced between your nose and chin, speak with Dr. Jeffrey Hartog about combining procedures.
Downtime is relatively short for this procedure, especially compared to other cosmetic surgeries. Typically speaking, you will be able to return to work in a week. It is important to follow all aftercare instructions you are given, including keeping your head elevated and icing the area.
Who is Considered an Ideal Candidate for Chin Implants?
Whether you feel your chin has become smaller over time or have always been dissatisfied with its shape and size, an implant can help. The ideal candidate will be an individual who is in good overall health, has a positive outlook, and has realistic expectations for their results. What to expect from the process, from beginning to end, will be discussed at a consultation.
Chin implants can help people who feel their chin:
- Is not proportionate with the rest of their face
- Appears weak
- Has a small bone, making them appear to have a double chin
- Lacks definition
