Benefits of chin surgery with implants

If you have a small or receding chin causing your facial features to be unbalanced, then a chin implant may be the right procedure for you. Benefits include:

  • Improved a recessed or weak chin
  • Improve other facial features
  • Make the chin into proportion
  • Create an overall balanced appearance
  • Leave only a small unnoticeable scar under your nose

Chin implants in men

Chin surgery is a common procedure performed on men. Men in particular can sometimes be more concerned about their chin as a receding or small chin may give the face a decreased masculine appearance. Masculinity is associated with a strong chin and jawline to create a chiselled facial structure.

Chin implants in women

Chin surgery for women differs from men as the desired appearance for a woman is not to create a masculine result. A receding chin in a woman can make her neck appear shorter and less aesthetically pleasing. It can also make the appearance of her nose look larger.

Chin augmentation with Specialist Surgeon

Chin augmentation will strengthen your facial profile by making a chin more prominent to balance with your other facial features

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the procedure?

Chin augmentation surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. You will need to be fasted for about 4-6 hours prior to surgery to avoid complications with any anaesthetic medication.

A small incision is made either underneath your chin or inside your mouth. Through this incision to create space for the chin implant and moulds it around until it is secured around your chin bone. The surgical procedure takes anywhere between 1 – 1.5 hours. Sutures are then used to close the incisions and are covered with compression tape and relevant dressings to ensure the area is protected during early healing.

What is the recovery process?

After your surgery you are allowed to go home accompanied by another adult when the anaesthetic medication wears off. Overnight hospital stays are not mandatory.

We will prescribe you the appropriate medication and pain killers to ensure you have a comfortable recovery. Oral anti-biotics are usually prescribed to prevent any infection. Sutures are usually dissolvable, so you will not have to have them removed.

We will advise that you eat foods with a high nutrition content to aid in faster healing. After every meal you are expected to rinse your mouth with an antiseptic solution that will be provided to you.

In your post-surgery follow up appointment, your surgeon will remove the wound dressings and compression tape. From then on you are able to resume your day to day activities. It is highly recommended not to resume any type of exercise until at least two weeks post-surgery.

You will notice some redness, swelling and bruising which will subside over 3 – 5 days.

The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome. Can’t recommend this place enough, do not waste your money elsewhere.
