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 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.
You can expect great results if you have realistic expectations from Rhinoplasty. Final results of nose reshaping cosmetic surgery may not be apparent until 6 months to a year after the surgery.
