Facial balance is a crucial factor in the human perception of beauty. When the chin is small, recedes, or lacks symmetry, balance can be restored with a custom chin augmentation performed at Shah Plastic Surgery. This procedure involves placing a custom chin implant to add volume and projection, with results that can dramatically enhance your facial appearance.
What Does Custom Chin Augmentation Surgery Involve?
The surgery involves placing an incision underneath your chin through which a surgical pocket is created. The implant is then placed within the pocket around your existing chin bone structure. This is an outpatient procedure, most often performed with oral medications and local anesthesia. The surgery takes about one hour to complete and is very well tolerated. Once the implant is in place, the incision is closed with sutures and your chin will be bandaged, protecting the area in place during healing.
