If you are bothered by a weak or receding chin, then chin augmentation may be right for you. A well-defined chin can help build balance and harmony among the facial features. This plastic surgery procedure uses an implant that is inserted into the chin area to add prominence or to correct a receding chin.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Dr. Stevens recommends chin augmentation for those who are in good physical health. It is most often performed on adult men and women. In order to be a good candidate, it’s also important to have realistic goals for improvement.
What to Expect After Surgery
The healing process may initially involve some discomfort, swelling and bruising. Patients may find smiling, talking and other facial movement difficult at first, and dietary restrictions may be required. Medication will be prescribed to help control discomfort. You should be ready to return to work and light activity within one week of your chin augmentation procedure.
