CHIN IMPLANTS WITH DR RICARDO VEGA
A chin implant is designed to bring a harmonious balance to facial features, usually by augmenting a weak chin. By placing a biocompatible implant in the lower jaw, patients can create a stronger chin, and even lengthen the entire face. While many patients use dermal fillers to increase chin size, their results last for only a few months and require frequent touch-ups. In comparison, a chin implant offers permanent results that can be customized to achieve the desired look.
A chin implant is commonly used in conjunction with rhinoplasty. Because the appearance of the chin may be affected by what will be the new size and shape of the nose, a chin implant may be used to help achieve a more pleasing facial proportion. It may also be combined with lip augmentation for maximum results.
BEST CANDIDATE FOR CHIN IMPLANT
The chin implant procedure takes less than an hour to perform, and it is only done under local anesthesia. During the procedure, an incision is made inside the mouth; this eliminates visible scarring. A pocket is created for the implant, which is then positioned in front of the jawbone. Once in place, the implant is secured with sutures, and the procedure is completed. Patients can return home the same day.
For some patients, an incision made in the mouth may not be possible. In these cases, the incision is made in the skin underneath the chin so that scars are not apparent.
