Chin Implants Can Help Create a More Pronounced Chin and Jawline
One of the fastest growing trends among men and women looking to achieve a more balanced facial structure is chin implants, also referred to as chin augmentation. One of the first areas to show signs of aging is the jawline and chin. Next to a facelift or eyelid surgery, chin implants can be one of the best ways to restore a more youthful balance and volume to your face by making the chin more distinguished. At Boulder Plastic Surgery, our board certified surgeons can perform chin augmentation procedures as well as a number of other cosmetic surgery options to enhance your features and give you a younger looking face.
Chin Implants Can Be Combined With Other Cosmetic Procedures to Yield the Ideal Results
A prominent chin can make all the difference in the overall balance and symmetry of one’s face. Men and women who want to increase the projection of their chin may opt for a chin implant procedure by itself, or some may have it performed in conjunction with nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) to create the most optimal facial balance.
The procedure involves a small incision beneath the chin through which an implant is inserted. There are many different kinds of implants that can be used, and your surgeon will discuss your expectations with you to decide on the appropriate option. In some cases, fat may be removed from under the chin and/or neck area. Some swelling or bruising may occur accompanied by slight discomfort following the procedure. Smiling and talking may be harder than normal in the first few days of recovery, though recovery time is usually no more than seven days, and you can return to work five days after surgery. Your activity level should be easy in the first week and then can be increased after two weeks. Here at Boulder Plastic Surgery, we will discuss the procedure, any risks, and detailed post-surgery guidelines with you ahead of time to ensure your safe and speedy recovery.
