A person’s chin serves to “frame” their lower face and plays an important role in the overall appearance of their profile. If you feel that your chin could be stronger or more symmetrical, Wirth Plastic Surgery can provide you with a quality chin augmentation procedure in Newport Beach. This will provide you with a subtle, permanent way to contour the chin and boost your confidence in this area.
Types of Chin Augmentation
Chin augmentations are performed by implanting biocompatible materials (most common) or cutting and contouring the bone in the target area. These are then contoured to help you achieve the shape you are looking for.
Just a few of the options you have to augment the look of your chin include:
- Chin implants, of varying shapes and sizes, which help to further define the chin and jawline
- Buccal fat pad reduction can help the chin and jawline appear more prominent by removing fat in the lower cheeks
- Fat transfer can take small amounts of fat from another part of the body and use that to subtly contour your chin and jawlines
- Submental liposuction can help patients remove stubborn pockets of fat beneath their chin to enhance their profile
What to Expect from Your Procedure
Depending on the extent of your procedure and whether it is being performed in conjunction with other treatments, a chin implant can generally take place in less than an hour. Whether local anesthesia or general anesthesia is required will depend on your specific situation. Incisions are generally made either below your chin or inside your mouth, depending on the size, material, and placement of the implant. This means that any scarring that takes place will not be in plain view. Patients can return to work and their normal schedule (barring physical activities) in about a week and can expect their new implants to be in its permanent position and stable after about 2-3 weeks. During the recovery period, patients should choose their food with care so as to not strain the incision site.
