Chin & Cheek Augmentation Houston
A chin implant can enhance the facial definition, contours, shape and balance
of the face by increasing the projection of the chin and strengthening
the jawline. Chin implants are most commonly used to add shape and fullness
to a receding chin, or to alter the overall shape of the face, often to
balance and proportion Implants may be used as an isolated procedure or
combined with other surgeries to provide symmetry and to create a balanced
rejuvenation of the face.

HOW IS CHIN AUGMENTATION PERFORMED?
Chin enhancement surgery is a simple procedure and patients are usually
seen as day cases. The procedure normally takes about an one hour to complete
and is carried out under IV sedation or local anesthesia. The surgery
involves making an incision from within the mouth, or underneath the chin.
Once the incisions are made, the chin implant is inserted and positioned
in front of the jawbone. Next the chin implant is secured with sutures.
The surgical cut is then secured with dissolvable stitches and a dressing
applied to support the implant while your face heals and to reduce the
risk of infection.
