Surgical implants for the chin can modify the structure of the face to present a more pleasing balance to your features. These implants are often inserted at the time of another cosmetic procedure, such as a rhinoplasty. In recent years, the fastest-growing area of facial cosmetic surgery has been the choice to have chin implants.
Chin implants are custom implants used for a variety of aesthetic reasons. In younger patients, implants are used to bring certain features into cosmetic balance with of the rest of your face. In older patients, they are utilized to restore a more youthful contour to the face especially in conjunction with facelift surgery. Dr. Kole can use chin implants to improve balance and enhance your facial features resulting in better symmetry, balance and feelings about your appearance.
A variety of chin implants are available in different sizes, shapes, contours, and materials. Most of the time, patients opt for implants made of solid, non-leaking silicone material. However, numerous options are available for implant materials, ranging from biocompatible manmade materials to harvesting your own bone. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kole will work with you to determine precisely the areas of concern and which implants will work to achieve your desired cosmetic results.
Implants are available for the chin for patients with weak chins. These implants are also available in a cleft variety to achieve a cleft chin when one was not born that way. Patients choose a chin implant to gain an improved facial profile and more attractive jaw line. Frequently when choosing chin implant surgery, many patients also decide to have other cosmetic surgery procedures performed.
The Surgical Procedure and Recovery
Placement of the chin implant is done as an outpatient procedure in our private, licensed surgical center performed under local anesthesia with light sedation. The incision for chin implants is usually done through an incision in the lower lip sulcus under the level of the teeth and gums. Dr. Kole prefers this technique to avoid an external visible scar on the chin. After the procedure, ice packs are applied to the surgical site to minimize discomfort and swelling. The entire surgical procedure, when performed alone, takes less than one hour.
You will experience some minor discomfort after surgery. Any bruising and swelling in the affected area will diminish over the next several days. Dr. Kole will give you very detailed postoperative instructions for your care, as well as restrictions on diet and exercise. Swelling will gradually subside over approximately two weeks; your newly contoured face will emerge and become more defined as the swelling subsides. Most people will be unable to tell that you have had facial surgery. However, they will notice that you look better, especially as you become more confident with your improved look.
Implants can correct or improve your appearance in subtle ways. You can expect that people will find your face to be more balanced and symmetrical after surgery.
