If you have always been embarrassed by your facial profile, a chin implant may be the right choice for you. This is a great option for those with recessed chins and for those who long for strong jawlines. A simple chin implant surgery by a premier cosmetic surgeon, such as Dr. Tavoussi, can make you feel proud of your face and lend symmetry and harmony to all of your facial features.
Procedures for Facial Profile Enhancements
A chin enhancement surgery, or genioplasty, uses a small implant uniquely designed for your facial shape to improve the size, shape, and projection of your chin and change the contours of your neck. It is particularly good for those with weak chins and for those who have double chins because of a lack of space between the chin and the neck.
A chin implant is usually an outpatient procedure, and you will not need to stay in the hospital overnight. However, you will usually be completely asleep for the surgery and will not feel any pain or remember any part of the procedure. Occasionally, your surgeon may opt to use local anesthetic with IV sedation for a very minor procedure. Most implant surgeries take around one hour. During this time, your surgeon will create an incision underneath the chin or inside the mouth. He will then place the implant inside the incision before suturing it closed.
When you have a chin implant to balance out your facial features and create a stronger jawline, you can feel more confident in your looks. This may even be able to help you feel better about yourself when you are at work or at social events. While a chin implant alone cannot change your life, it can give you a great way to boost your self-image and to live your life while feeling good about yourself again.
