Chin augmentation | lone tree co | emmett plastic surgery | emmett plastic surgeryLone Tree, CO patients who are unhappy with their facial appearance due to a weak chin may be unaware of the options available to them for improving their appearance. Dr. Jennifer Emmett of Emmett Plastic Surgery is a dedicated provider in the community who offers a wide range of cosmetic and medical plastic surgery solutions for the face and body. With chin augmentation procedures, patients can improve their profile and enjoy a more defined chin and jaw with chin implants.

How does chin augmentation work?

Just like implants for other parts of the body, the chin augmentation procedure places an implant on the bone of the chin to add improved projection. This can help in defining the chin and jaw area, addressing a “double chin” or a weak chin. Many patients find that the chin implant gives them a more pleasing look. The implant itself may be made out of different types of materials, however, the most popular implant material is silicone. Patients can speak to their doctor about their choices, and make the choice right for their unique needs.

Is the procedure invasive and leave behind scarring?

The chin implant procedure is still a surgical procedure, and carries the same risks as any other surgery. However, with the care of the team at Emmett Plastic Surgery, patients can have the procedure performed in a way that reduces the appearance of scarring. Our doctor will determine if the oral placement or external placement is more desirable. External placement can leave minimal scarring, while placement through the oral cavity can eliminate the appearance of any scar at all.

Can I combine other facial surgeries at the same time?

Patients who want to address more than just their chin are encouraged to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Jennifer Emmett to determine if other procedures can be performed at the same time. This allows the patient to undergo surgery and recovery once even though more than one area is being addressed at a time. Some patients choose to have their chin implant done in conjunction with other procedures including blepharoplasty or rhinoplasty.
