WHO IS A CANDIDATE?
If you have a small or receding chin.
A chin that looks too small in comparison with other facial features and possibly makes the nose appear longer.
Desire for increased chin prominence.
An improved profile.
A more attractive jawline that creates a better balance between the chin and other facial features.
The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under sedation and local or general anesthesia.
An incision is made inside the lower lip or under the chin, and an implant is placed.
In an alternative method called sliding osteotomy, a portion of the chin bone is permanently moved forward.
The patient goes home with a small pressure dressing over the chin.
Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication.
Swelling, tenderness, and possible local numbness gradually subside within a month or two.
Additional procedures that would enhance the result are: Liposuction of the neck, nose reshaping (Rhinoplasty), Neck Lift, or Laser Skin Resurfacing.
