Everyone can look into the mirror and critique their appearance— pointing out a handful of things that they would change if they could. And although it's hard to change things like your skin color or genetic composition, the plastic surgeons at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery can help enhance certain parts of your face, including your chin. If you have a neck wattle or if you simply want a more defined profile, consider getting chin implants. Read on to learn more about this procedure. What Are Chin Implants? You've heard of breast implants and butt implants, but did you know there is such thing as chin implants? By inserting a customized implant over your current chin bone, chin implants work to help accentuate your jawline and give you more chiseled looking features. Often done in combination with liposuction, chin implants can help you look and feel like a million bucks. What Is the Procedure Like? As a fairly invasive surgery, chin implants require the use of anesthesia to help you, the patient, feel comfortable and relaxed during the entire procedure. As the first step, your surgeon will create a small incision typically under your lower lip. Once the incision has been done, a small pocket will be formed, and the implant will be inserted into that pocket. What Is Recovery Like? Just like any surgical procedure, recovery is one of the most pertinent steps. During recovery, we encourage our patients to take a few days off of work to get the rest and relaxation that their body needs. Patients typically suffer from swelling, slight bruising, and inflammation, but with the proper care, all of those side-effects should subside after around one week. If you look at your side profile and you notice that you have a neck wattle, weak neck, or no definition, then a chin implant may be the right surgery for you.
