Chin Implant Surgery NYC
If you feel that your face is disproportioned or unbalanced, you may be a candidate for chin implant surgery. Although sometimes overlooked as a potential cosmetic improvement, making your chin more prominent can create balance and harmony with your other facial features. Having a recessed chin can make your neck look unflattering or make your nose appear larger than it is.
Adding Chin Volume to Balance Your Features
Chin implant surgery can be used to either add volume or modify the shape of your chin. It is a common procedure for both men and women in New York City who desire a more balanced, flattering facial structure. The implants feel very like natural tissue for a natural-looking facial enhancement.
Who is a good candidate for a chin implant?
Almost anyone who is in generally good health can be eligible for a chin implant. The procedure is available to men and women who are dissatisfied with the size, shape, or projection of the chin. Those considering the surgery may also experience:
- A small or recessed chin area
- A pointed or misshapen chin
- Fleshy neck
- Large nose
- Unbalanced or disproportional facial structure
If you previously had non-surgical chin augmentation with injectable fillers and were satisfied with your overall look but want more a more permanent solution, you may be a good candidate for a chin implant. Finally, your jaw must function correctly to be eligible for this procedure.
What You Need to Know About Chin Implant Surgery
There are a variety of materials used to make chin implants, and implants can be modified to create the perfect size, shape, definition, and projection. Dr. Westreich in NYC will work with you to determine the overall dimensions and shape of your implant based on your existing tissue and bone, and the look that will best enhance your natural features.
Chin Implant Procedures
There are two types of incisions that can be made to insert your implant. If you opt for a solid silicone implant, an incision is made beneath the chin. Most other available biocompatible materials can be inserted using a smaller incision inside the mouth where the bottom lip meets the jaw. All incisions are placed in discreet locations and the advanced surgical techniques used by Dr. Westreich will produce virtually undetectable scars.
A well-fitting pocket is made under the skin where the implant is placed. In some cases, your implant may be secured to the bone in the chin to keep it in place and reduce the risk of movement. Lastly, your incision will be closed. The entire procedure is quick and easy, typically performed in less than one hour.
Outpatient Chin Implant Surgery in NYC
Chin implant surgery is generally performed on an outpatient basis, so you will be able to return home the same day as your procedure. The surgery can also be combined with other cosmetic procedures like our facelift NYC, nose reshaping, fillers, and more. When coupled with other procedures, your surgical appointment will be longer, with the enhancements you want to be completed in one surgery.
How long will it take to recover from chin implant surgery?
You will receive instructions from Dr. Westreich concerning caring for your incisions while you recover from surgery. He will also prescribe an antibiotic and oral pain reliever to make you more comfortable. Pain medication is usually only needed for a maximum of a couple of days as recovery from chin implants is usually easy.
Resuming Physical Activity After Chin Implant Surgery
You will likely be able to resume light activities the same day as your surgery, but it is advised that you take that day to rest and recover. The skin around your chin may feel taut at first because of the added volume, but your body will quickly adjust. You will likely need approximately one week off from work, and you will quickly be able to enjoy your new, enhanced chin, and more attractive facial profile.
