Chin Implant for Men
In men especially, a retrusive chin can dramatically affect overall facial harmony. In patients with normal well-aligned teeth and a retrusive chin, a chin implant can restore facial harmony for a dramatic improvement in appearance.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING CHIN IMPLANT SURGERY?
A chin implant can be placed through a small incision under the chin, or sometimes though a small incision inside the mouth.
Chin implants come in a variety of sizes and your surgeon will help you choose the one that is right for you.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM CHIN IMPLANT SURGERY?
Chin implant patients will experience swelling and possible bruising.
Occasionally the lower lip is numb for a few days to weeks, but this is temporary.
Chin implants are performed on an outpatient basis and patients are asked to followup in the office the following day.
Sutures are removed at one week and patients are asked to avoid any direct trauma or contact to the area until fully healed. Shaving can typically be resumed once the sutures are removed.
The implant heals in place to your natural tissues and eventually feels like part of your own natural face.
