How Chin Implants Can Change the Way Your Face Shape Looks
- Posted on: Jan 30 2016
There likely isn’t a single person in the world who is 100% happy with their body and appearance 100% of the time. Even supermodels like Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid likely have a feature or two that they would change if given the opportunity. As one of the easiest and fastest ways to change your facial appearance, chin implants offer you the opportunity to transform your facial appearance in a simple and safe manner.
What are chin implants?
Yes, the thought of getting chin implants might be enough to frighten an entire country, however they’re not as gruesome as they sound. Patients who receive chin augmentation surgery will be under general anesthesia so that they don’t feel anything during the entire process. Once the patient is under anesthesia, the surgeon will make a small incision along the bottom part of the chin or in the mouth in order to create enough room for an implant to be placed. Once the implant has been placed, the surgeon will determine whether or not it’s necessary to shave off and remove parts of the existing chin in order to give the patient a more natural and subtle looking chin. Once this has been done, the surgeon will stitch the patient up and they will be sent for recovery.
What are chin implants used for?
Chin implants are primarily used to give more symmetry to the face. For instance, if a patient has a large nose and small chin, or vice versa, then chin implants can be used in order to give the patient more aesthetic balance across their entire face.
What is recovery time like?
Recovery time for chin plants is fairly minimal, especially in comparison to other facial surgeries. Expect for the full recovery time to last around 10 days. During this time, it’s important for patients to follow the surgeon’s instructions in regards to bandaging, bruising, chewing, and eating certain foods— as not following these instructions can interrupt the healing process.
