An underdeveloped or weak appearing chin often causes other facial features to appear larger than they really are. Chin implants can help correct this issue. It is a minor cosmetic surgery during which Dr. Demetri uses implants to provide structure in the chin. This will create a more prominent looking appearance. Chin augmentation using facial implants is a permanent solution whereas filler is only temporary.
Chin augmentation provides more structure to a weak looking face. It also can do the following:
If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your chin, then you should consider an implant procedure. Chin implant surgery is typically done to enlarge a small chin or to enhance a “weak” appearing chin that lacks definiton.
Chin augmentation takes about half an hour and is performed under sedation. You will not have any pain during your procedure.
Chin implantation recovery is relatively quick! Most of our patients return to work within a week. The stitches are removed after about four or five days. And since Dr. Demetri meticulously hides the incision under the chin, it is not very noticeable!
Some swelling and bruising is expected but typically resolves within one to two weeks. We do recommend you avoid any contact sports or anything that may directly impact your new chin for about six to eight weeks.
There is no noticeable scarring with this surgery since the incision is made under the chin. When done by a facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Demetri, the scarring is minimal.
