1) What is chin augmentation surgery?
Chin surgery or chin augmentation is a procedure where the shape of your chin is modified to give you improved symmetry with your other facial features. This process can be accomplished using a chin implant that reduces your bone to make your chin smaller.
2) Why you may want chin surgery:
People with a weaker chin line opt for a chin augmentation to deal with factors like age, fat deposits in the neck and gravity that changes the face and its appearance in relation to the chin. When a bolder and more defined jaw line is desired, a chin surgery resolves these physical concerns.
3) Am I a good candidate for chin implant surgery?
People with chins that are not in proportion to the rest of their face can benefit from a chin implant surgery. An overly prominent chin can be corrected with a chin reduction surgery while a weak chin can be augmented using chin implants.
4) Is chin surgery safe?
There are always some risks of complications in any surgery but they can be minimized by a specialist like Dr. Feledy. Typical risks with a chin augmentation surgery include infection, bleeding and the possibility of scarring. Every effort is taken to ensure any risks are lessened.
5) What happens during chin reduction surgery?
A chin reduction begins with an incision, usually inside the mouth, where scarring cannot be seen. Dr. Feledy reshapes the chin through the placement of chin implants, which cause the chin to appear more prominent. The bone at the tip of the chin is detached and reshaped in order to provide a more pleasing contour. The chin structure may also be reshaped using other methods. After the implants are in place, the incisions are sutured to complete the surgery.
6) What happens during chin augmentation surgery?
Patients return home shortly after surgery. Depending on the nature and extent of your chin augmentation, you will probably feel sore for a few days. Limiting activities like chewing is recommended.
7) What can I expect after the surgery?
Surgical dressings remain in place for a few days. Once the swelling has subsided, you’ll be able to remove the dressings and see how great your chin and neck contours looks and how balanced your facial features are after the surgery.
8) What results can I expect?
Surgical dressings will remain in place for a few days. When the swelling has subsided, you be able to remove the dressings and see the final results of more chin and neck contours and more balanced facial features.
