What Is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation is designed to give an under-projected or recessed chin more prominence, which also enhances the shape of your neck and jawline. The most common type of chin augmentation is a synthetic chin implant.
It’s placed around your existing chin below the skin, which then alters the shape of your face by refining the contours of your chin. At PURE Cosmetic Center in Chelmsford chin augmentation can also be done at the same time as rhinoplasty since the size of your nose affects chin size and the two can together create a stronger result. You can also have your chin augmentation done at the same time as a facelift or neck lift, which will further define your jawline.
During chin augmentation Chelmsford plastic surgeon Dr. Lee will make a small incision inside your mouth or below your chin. He’ll then place the chin implant(s) around your existing chin bone. The skin is then stitched closed with sutures. This is considered outpatient surgery and takes about an hour to complete. Other than a few stitches, no other dressings are required. You’ll need to return for a follow-up to make sure you’re healing correctly and ensure your satisfaction with the surgery. Typical recovery time for your chin augmentation can take one to two weeks.
