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. If standard implants are not optimal, customized chin implants are also available. If warranted, Dr. Westreich will discuss this option based on your underlying anatomy and aesthetic goals. Best of all, the surgery can be done under local anesthesia, which reduces risks and recovery time.

Chin Implant Procedures

There are two types of incisions that can be made to insert your implant. If you opt for an extended implant, an incision is made beneath the chin. Central disc implants 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 most cases, your implant will be secured to the bone in the chin to keep it in place and reduce the risk of early 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 under local anesthesia or 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 submental liposuction, FaceTite, Facelift, rhinoplasty, dermal 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 Augmentation?

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 typically 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 a few days to one week off from work, and you will quickly be able to enjoy your new, enhanced chin and more attractive facial profile.
