When to Consider Chin Augmentation Surgery
- If you desire a stronger appearance to the chin and profile
- If you desire to enhances a receding or weak chin
Chin Augmentation Surgery Consultation
Dr. Schwartz and his staff will meet with you to help you make decisions regarding which procedure(s) or treatment(s) will result in achieving your aesthetic goals. The consultation will conclude with a discussion about the desired treatment, your expectations, the benefits and risks associated with the treatment and post-treatment recovery.
Chin Augmentation Surgery Complementary Procedures
While chin augmentation can be performed alone, even with local anesthesia, it is not uncommon practice for patients undergoing chin augmentation surgery to combine several procedures at once. This can offer complementary or enhanced results.
Patients undergoing chin augmentation surgery may elect to combine the following procedures for enhanced results:
- Nose surgery
- Brow lift
- Face/Neck lift
- Eyelid surgery
- Ear surgery
- Lip enhancement
Dr. Schwartz’s talent and capabilities as a surgeon are beyond compare. Please take a moment to view our beautiful photo gallery, to see for yourself the exquisite results that are possible when you undergo a brow lift with Dr. Michael R. Schwartz.
Chin Augmentation Surgery
Dr. Schwartz will place an inconspicuous incision in the crease beneath the chin. A pocket will be created in front of the chin bone where the implant will be placed. An implant made from Silicone will be contoured to fit and sit snugly onto the chin. The implant becomes tightly held into the chin bone by the bone’s natural lining. The implant can extend to include the “pre-jowl” depression, giving a smooth, natural look without a pointy “witches chin” appearance.
Chin Augmentation Surgery Recovery
During your chin augmentation surgery, bandages or dressings may be applied to keep the surgical site clean and to support the position of the implant during initial healing once your procedure is finished.
You will be given specific instructions from Dr. Schwartz and his staff that may include:
- How to care for the surgical site
- Medications to apply or take orally to aid in healing and the progression of your recovery
- Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
- Post-op follow-up appointment information
