Chin Augmentation (Mentoploasty)
Chin surgery, or mentoplasty, reshapes the jawline and lower part of the face to improve proportions and symmetry. Dr. Nirved an Experienced Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon ensures that, whether using implants or fat grafting, patients can achieve beautiful, natural-looking results and long-term satisfaction.
What is the procedure for chin augmentation ?
Often, surgeons suggest chin augmentation along with rhinoplasty, to give the face a balanced look.
To begin with, an incision will be made. Most often, the tiny incision is made under the chin, through which solid silicone implants are inserted. When using other implants made of biocompatible material, the incision is made inside the mouth. To make the implant fit well, your surgeon may decide to fix it to some soft tissue or bone. Once the surgeon is completely satisfied with the fit of the implant, he will close the incision, completing the 30 to 45 minute chin augmentation surgery. In case there are more procedures accompanying chin augmentation, the time spent in surgery will be longer, depending on what else has to be done.
Tape is securely applied to hold the implants in place. Normal swelling and bruising will follow surgery.
How much time it takes recovery after chin augmentation?
They are given medication for discomfort and a one-week course of antibiotic medication to reduce the risk of infection. Most patients can return to work in three to seven days.
Other aspects of aftercare include the following:-
- A soft or liquid diet for four to five days.
- Raising the head of the bed or using two to three pillows.
- Rinsing the mouth with a solution of hydrogen peroxide and warm water two to three times daily.
- Avoiding sleeping on the face and unnecessary touching of the chin area.
- Avoiding vigorous physical exercise for about two weeks.
What are the risk and complications ?
Complications of chin augmentation are infrequent, and cosmetic procedures are generally safe, as long as they are carried out by a qualified and experienced professional.
What Result can been seen after surgery ?
Both chin surgery and non-surgical augmentation can significantly improve not just the contours and symmetry of your face, but also your self-confidence. By combining your chin augmentation with another procedure, such as a facelift, you can experience even more dramatic results.
