Chin Implants


Chin (mandibular) augmentation is the surgical use of sterile synthetics or biological implants to bring the chin into better balance with other facial features. It is very common to have chin implants when a nose job (rhinoplasty) is being done. Physicians may refer to the procedure as genioplasty. The outcome should be a balanced relationship between the structures of the face.

The procedure can balance a weak, or receding, chin and make a prominent nose seem less large. A weak chin can also make your neck look overly fleshy. Usually, a chin implant provides a more harmonious balance to your face and features so you feel better about the way you look, especially in profile.

Chin augmentation operations can last thirty minutes to one and one-half hours, depending on the circumstances of your case. The procedures can be performed with either a local or general anesthetic, depending on patient and plastic surgeon preferences. The surgeon may use fat from your body, silicone implants or a whole range of other synthetic or biological inserts which may even include specially prepared coral. Some implants are made of solid silicone, generally considered safe by most physicians because, they say, there is no scientific evidence that solid silicone is harmful. In the operating room, your vital signs will be monitored while the surgeon selects the best size and shape to enhance your appearance. He then inserts it into a pocket under your chin. Or, the implant is inserted through the mouth, along the lower lip. Usually, the chin is taped after surgery to minimize swelling and discomfort. Sutures are usually removed in five to seven days. Chin augmentation is also commonly combined with facial liposuction, where fat is removed from under the chin and under the neck. Chin implants conform to the bone and are usually undetectable. The implant is generally sutured to bone or attached with titanium surgical screws.

The long term results of chin implants usually last for life. However, some autologous fat grafts can be reabsorbed into your body. With the increasing popularity of various plastic surgery procedures, including chin implants, it?s important the prospective patient research and understand different issues such as what the procedure can and cannot treat, inherent risks, costs, and other factors. Keep in mind, plastic surgery is just that ? a surgical procedure whose results cannot simply be erased.
