Chin augmentation surgery using surgical implants alters the underlying structure of the face, providing better balance to the facial features or improving protrusion and side profile for patients. Patients who want to change the size and shape of their chin frequently opt for chin implants. These implants can be used to improve the way the jaw line and chin look.
Chin augmentation is a popular procedure due to the fact that it is a relatively uncomplicated operation for the patient while producing noticeable changes in the silhouette of the face. The implant facilitates the correction of the facial profile, at Signature Clinic we carefully size the patients face and discuss thoroughly with the patient about their goals in terms of the chin augmentation. Our implants are all custom built, providing the patient with a bespoke, personalised result.
Individuals who have a weak, receding chin may want a chin that projects out further. They can improve their jaw line by selecting a longer chin implant. At Signature Clinic we frequently use chin implants to correct a weak chin. These implants benefit the proportion of the jaw and lower face; thus, improving the way the nose and cheeks look as well.
Many of Signature Clinics patients combine their chin implant procedure with some of the other cosmetic procedures offered at our State of the Art Glasgow Theatres. These procedures frequently include dermal fillers, Buccal Fat Pad Reduction, Aqualyx fat dissolving injections, HIFU facial tightening or Vaser liposuction to the neck.
Chin implant surgery is a relatively short procedure generally only taking about 1-2 hours. If a patient chooses to have multiple procedures during his/her procedure, the surgery time varies accordingly. Signature Clinics patients are given a local anaesthetic prior to the start of their surgery.
Our highly skilled surgeons will either make a small incision along the crease beneath the chin or inside the lower lip. This incision is used to place the implant. The surgeons make the incision along this crease to ensure that any scarring is well hidden.
The procedure is very safe rarely with any instances of difficult aftercare, or complications during.
On average, it takes approximately two weeks to 4 weeks for a patient to completely recover from the chin implant procedure. Initially, you should expect some inflammation and/or bruising; however, these resolve during the next four weeks. You may experience some discomfort following your chin implant procedure; however, this discomfort is usually minimal.
If necessary, the clinic will prescribe pain medication so that you are comfortable while you recover. Directly following your chin implant surgery, you may want to avoid foods that require an excessive amount of chewing (e.g., steak, nuts). You should be ready to return to your normal work schedule within three to five days.
