Do you feel like your chin is not quite in proportion to the rest of your face? Consider a chin implant performed by Dr. Jennifer Emmett of Emmett Plastic Surgery, to correct the proportions of your facial features by enhancing your chin. Chin implants are popular among Centennial and Denver area residents looking to enhance the definition of their chin. Dr. Emmett is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery.
A chin implant, also known as chin augmentation, is a surgical procedure that enhances the appearance of the chin by adding definition, volume, and proportion to an underdeveloped chin using implants that are inserted under the skin. Chin implants are used in chin augmentation to increase the size and definition of the chin, resulting in a more balanced and defined facial structure.
Chin augmentation corrects a disproportionate chin and creates a harmonious balance between the chin and the rest of your facial features. A small, underdeveloped chin makes the neck appear fleshy and the face withdrawn, while also detracting from your smile. A small, undefined chin causes the nose and forehead to appear disproportionately large and creates an awkward profile. Chin augmentation with implants creates harmony and balance to your facial features and restores visual harmony the overall facial structure.
A chin implant may provide an optimal solution if your chin is not pronounced or defined enough, or if it appears too small for the rest of your face. This procedure is used to sculpt a more balanced facial structure, and may help your jaw line appear more defined. The goal of a chin implant is to balance the facial proportions by adding volume and definition to the chin. Ideal candidates for chin implants are women and men over the age of 16 who are in good overall health.
A chin implant procedure usually takes about one hour to complete and requires an incision on the underside of the jaw line. A silicone implant shaped to the desired contour is then inserted carefully beneath the soft tissues inside the chin.
The post-surgical recovery process after a chin implant is usually no longer than a week, although you will be advised to avoid strenuous exercise and extensive movement of the facial muscles for a few additional weeks.
Chin augmentation surgery may vary in cost between patients, depending on surgical specifics such as the type and size of chin implants and the need for surgical re-sculpting of the natural tissues during the procedure.
