Recessive chin augmentation surgery makes use of chin implants for supplementing the existing bone at the front of the jaw below the teeth. The artificial implant sits under the skin giving a permanent boost to the definition and strength to the chin. This augmentation procedure can give people a well-proportionated and pleasing appearance that would seem natural. In most cases, the procedure is performed on an outpatient basis at the facility of the surgeon, however, it can also be performed at the hospital. There are several factors which determine the duration of the procedure. usually, it lasts for forty-five minutes to an hour and a half. On the basis of the patient or surgeon’s preference, general or local anesthesia is administered to perform the surgery.
The incision is made at the time of the surgery inside of the mouth between the lower lip and the gum or underneath the chin. Incisions that are made in the mouth are more likely to generate bacteria into the body, however, there is no visible scarring. Once the incisions are made, the surgeon inserts the chin implant and positions than in front of the jawbone. Then the surgeon checks its appearance for proper balance with other facial features and might alter or adjust the implant to make sure that the proper look is achieved. Once this is achieved, the chin implant is sutured into the place thus completing the procedure. It will take nearly ten days for the sutures to get dissolved. Also, sutures placed outside the mouth are removed after the same period.
The results of the procedure, as mentioned above, are pleasing and satisfactory. You can expect to have a more defined and stronger jawline that would enhance the overall appearance of your face. The results are long-lasting however you can expect changes because of ageing.
Depending on the anesthesia administered, you might be discharged on the same day of the procedure or might have to spend a night or two at the hospital. Distortion or swelling of the chin might last for one to two weeks. You can return to normal activities and work in a week or ten days. Avoid vigorous and strenuous activities for six to eight weeks.
