Chin Implants

Chin Augmentation Surgery

You should consider getting a well-defined jawline structure if you want a balanced and attractive face, whether you are a male or a female. Skilled cosmetic surgeons can place custom-fit biocompatible chin implants for the purpose of adding strength to a recessed or weak chin. This can go a long way in improving your facial harmony.

Genioplasty or chin enhancement surgery helps in improving the contours of jawline, chin, and neck. Your female plastic surgeon will place a chin implant in front of the lower jaw bone to augment the shape and size of the existing chin. This cosmetic surgery allows for a more attractive facial balance in a natural looking way.

Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides chin implants to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding communities.

How Do Chin Implants Appear?

Chin implants are solid devices created from silicone or any other biocompatible material. Your female cosmetic surgeon will have the implant molded to fit perfectly around your chin bone. Chin implants differ in contour and size. Your surgeon will help you choose the best implant to provide natural looking results while achieving the desired level of enhancement.

Chin implants are solid in structure and feel similar to the natural chin bone. It is typically impossible to notice this surgery when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.

What Does Chin Implant Surgery Involve?

The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia. Your surgeon will place a small and discreet incision inside your mouth or underneath the chin. A space will be created through this incision for the chin implant, which will be molded to your chin bone.

The surgery usually takes about an hour. However, it may take longer if you are having other additional procedures performed as well. Incisions are closed using sutures following the surgery and the sutures may be wrapped in bandages.

Chin Implant Surgery Recovery

This procedure involves quick recovery for most patients. You may be back at your desk within a week of the surgery. Any pain or discomfort is usually minimal and easily treatable by cold compresses or medication. You should avoid strenuous activities and exercises for about three to four weeks after your surgery.

Results of Chin Implant Surgery

Chin implants are solid, durable medical devices. They are designed to be permanent. Your enhanced chin contour will not be affected by natural aging process. However, extensive trauma to the face can damage an implant and you may require a replacement surgery.
