Let us understand more about chin augmentation:
Chin augmentation or genioplasty is a procedure that enhances your recessed chin. This can be done using implant or fillers to define the jawline.
You are surely a candidate for chin enhancement surgery if you are one of them:
Surgeon will take the history and examine you thoroughly. He will make you understand the facial symmetry and the facial proportions.
Your expectations would be taken into consideration.
If you are the right candidate, he will explain you the procedure in detail.
Preliminary investigations would be ordered.
Blood thinner drugs would be stopped prior to surgery.
Smoking also needs to be stopped 2 weeks prior to surgery.
Chin augmentation procedure can be of two types - permanent or temporary.
Permanent procedure is done through the artificial implants whereas temporary procedure is done through fillers which last for upto 10-12 months.
This procedure is usually done under local anaesthesia in a daycare facility. Incision is preferably placed inside the mouth in the buccal sulcus. This eliminates any scar later on the outer skin. Artificial implants are usually placed (according to the shape and dimension required) through the incision under the skin and fixed through the suture. Stitches are absorbable and dissolve on their own gradually. This is a permanent method of correction.
Implants are mainly made up of silicone and usually of 2 major types - u shaped or anatomical. U- shaped implants are sharper, conical to give you more pointed chin whereas anatomical are broader, crescent shaped to give you large broad chin.
Some swelling as well as bruising is present, which may last upto 6 weeks. Antibiotics and pain killers take care of post-op infection and pain.
Solid food is avoided for 2-3 days after surgery, after which normal dietary plan can be followed.
Fillers, mainly hyaluronic acid, are injected at the deficient areas to enhance the jawline and make it more defined. This is a temporary method, requiring repeated injections at fixed intervals.
