Benefits of Chin Augmentation
Strong Chin And Jawline
The chin is often overlooked when examining the face. However, altering it can be the simplest method for achieving a graceful facial balance. Chin augmentation can create the appearance of a more balanced chin or jawline that delicately reshapes and creates an overall satisfying bone structure with a better aesthetic balance.
Improved Facial Harmony
A recessed chin may distract from the other facial characteristics or create the appearance of oversized facial features, such as an enlarged nose. Dr. Pontell understands the delicate balance of the facial features and will create a chin that doesn’t stand out but rather that blends in with the entire face. Patients can expect beautiful results with their newly improved facial harmony.
Since the face isn’t something a person can hide or cover up easily, when someone has a receding chin, it can cause them to become insecure about their facial appearance. Once Dr. Pontell employs his surgical skill and experience, he can produce a defined chin that balances and complements the contours and size of the other facial features. Patients are happy with the transformation chin augmentation, which helps them regain their confidence.
What happens during the chin augmentation procedure?
Before your procedure, you will meet with Dr. Pontell to discuss your goals and concerns, and he will assess your facial anatomy. He will examine your chin features and help you decide if a chin augmentation in Philadelphia will help you achieve the most aesthetically pleasing result.
Dr. Pontell may recommend combining one or more procedures with your chin enhancement surgery, such as rhinoplasty, facelift surgery, or blepharoplasty, to create balanced facial proportions. Patients can explore our before and after gallery of facial enhancement procedures to get an idea of the possible results. Dr. Pontell will use computer imaging to show patients their potential results and if chin augmentation will help them achieve their surgical goals. For patients who are not ready for surgery, Dr. Pontell will advise injectable dermal filler treatments to help achieve temporary but effective chin augmentation, such as Voluma and Restylane Lyft.
The surgical procedure
Chin augmentation is performed under general anesthesia, local anesthesia or intravenous sedation. To begin the procedure, an incision is made underneath the chin. Chin augmentation requires relatively small incisions that are placed in inconspicuous areas and should be barely noticeable once healed. Chin implants come in all different shapes and sizes to meet each patient’s needs, and Dr. Pontell often customizes them for each individual patient. Once the implant is in place, the incision is closed with sutures designed to produce the least visible scar.
Patients should arrange for a designated driver to take them to and from surgery. It is recommended that patients sleep in an elevated position for at least one week, and they may be restricted to a soft food diet for 10 days. Patients may experience some pain and discomfort, but the pain should not be severe. Prescription medications and regular TYLENOL® can also be taken throughout the recovery process.
Sutures are removed in nine days. The entire recovery process lasts about two weeks, after which exercise can be resumed.
