A chin implant enhances your face and strengthens your profile, providing a more proportionate appearance in relation to your jawline and neck. Mid Florida Institute of Plastic Surgery correct your receding or under-defined chin or, if your chin is too prominent, sculpt your jawline so that it no longer overwhelms your entire face.
Healthy adults who want more balanced features, a more refined profile, or a smoother, less fleshy neck.
Surgery is outpatient, performed under general or local and intravenous anesthesia. Incisions will be made inside the mouth or under the chin. A recessed chin may require an implant or injection of fat, harvested from your own body, to give it permanent structure and shape. In the case of a reduction, your surgeon will shape your bone to a more pleasing shape.
Following surgery, you’ll be on a liquid or soft food diet for several days, and your skin may feel tight, but this should subside in a week or so.
All surgeries carry risks for medical complications, which your surgeon will discuss with you. Avoid aspirin, Advil, fish oil, or other blood thinners for a few weeks leading up to surgery, to avoid hematomas and excessive bleeding.
Swelling can last for six months, but you should see a sculpted, pleasing profile in about a week.
