We rarely see what we look like in profile. Many people decide to seek chin augmentation after they see a picture of themselves in profile. They never realize that their chins are too small or underdeveloped.
An image of weakness can be projected by a small undersized chin. It can undermine your face, making your nose appear larger and an overbite appear more pronounced.
A Silastic implant is used to augment an undersized chin. Your surgeon will makes an incision inside the mouth, or underneath the chin, creating a pocket. The implant is slipped in between the muscle and the jawbone, where it remains firmly in place. Any scarring from an incision under the chin is minimal.
You may experience swelling and bruising. Any discomfort after surgery can be controlled with pain medication prescribed by your surgeon. You will be up and around the same day of surgery, but you may need to eat a soft diet for a few days.
Chin augmentation is one of cosmetic surgery’s simplest procedures. The goal is to enhance and improve the appearance of an undersized chin, bringing better balance to your facial features.
