CHIN AUGMENTATION

An attractive chin should have appropriate length and curves into U or V shape. The curve should go with the facial shape both from the side and the front view. Prior to chin augmentation, surgeon will check overall jaw condition to determine areas needed to be corrected. For the benefit of patient, it is recommended to consult in detail with surgeon about the operation.

There are 2 methods of chin augmentation

1. Submental Incision (Outside the mouth): the incision is usually under the chin
2. Intraoral Incision (Inside the mouth): the incision is usually between the gum and lower lip 

Implant Materials: Tube Silicone

Procedure of Chin Augmentation
Face and neck are washed daily for 2-3 days (prior to the surgery). In the first step, surgeon will clean the face and apply anesthetic, then make incision at the targeted area and insert disinfected silicone on to the original chin bone. The incision about 1.5-3 cm long will be perfectly hidden between gum and lower lip. After the process, surgeon will suture and fix the silicone with bandage. The overall procedure will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour. In some cases, abrasion on cartilage is required prior to the surgery.

Treatment After Surgery

1. After the surgery, patient might experience pain and swelling. This will improve within 2-3 days

2. Patient might struggle to talk or smile after the surgery
3. There might be bruises around jaw and chin. Patient should apply ice pack on the area within the first 6 hours after surgery
4. Soft diet is recommended
5. Surgeon will make an appointment within 10 days after surgery to follow up and remove the stitches
