About The Chin Surgery Procedure:

Chin implant cosmetic surgery involves facial plastic surgeon Dr. Moubayed placing a silicone implant on top of the bone and underneath the muscle, adding projection to the chin. A silicone implant has a natural feel and carries the advantage of being permanent, thus avoiding multiple sessions of hyaluronic acid fillers.

This facial implant is easily reversible or removed if the patient desires removal or if the chin implant gets infected (3% lifetime infection risk).

Recovery Time from A Chin Augmentation Surgical Procedure

You should plan one week of recovery from work, school, and social activities after chin surgery. After a week, most bruising can be easily hidden with concealer.

You should plan on chewing small bites or soft foods for the first week. Light physical activity can be resumed after a week, but you should refrain from heavy lifting for three weeks to prevent bleeding.

What Surgical Approach Is Used For Chin Implants?

There are two ways to place chin implants: the external approach that produces a visible scar on the chin, or the intraoral approach, through the mouth, that leaves no external scars.

In patients with a history of bad scarring, Dr. Moubayed prefers the intraoral approach to avoid external scars. For most patients, we perform the external approach as the chin implant can be placed through a small 2 centimeter incision that heals beautifully, and this way the implant avoids contact with body fluids like saliva, decreasing theoretical infection risk.

How Long Does A Chin Implant Surgery Take To Perform?

Chin implantation usually takes an hour to perform. We use an external approach with an incision scar under the chin for patients who want liposuction at the same time, and an intraoral approach (without external scars) for other patients.

Surgical results last a lifetime. The final results take one year to show.

Risks of Chin Implant

Like any facial plastic surgery procedure, there are some minor risks. Common risks include general pain and some normal bleeding.

In some rare cases, some patients can experience more severe complications, however, when performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon using modern techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, such risks are very rare.

  • Implant infection
  • Visible scarring
  • Asymmetries,
  • Implant movement
  • Irregularities and bumpiness
  • Facial nerve paralysis
  • Temporary or permanent lip/mouth/chin numbness.

Things You Should Know Before Getting chin implant surgery

Chin Implant: Frequently Asked Questions for Cosmetic Chin Implant Surgery.

The chin augmentation recovery time varies per person, but patients typically require 1 to 3 weeks to heal, and a few more weeks for minor side effects to completely subside. Patients usually return home the same day as the procedure.

A day before the scheduled chin implant surgery, the patient should wash their hair thoroughly to help minimize infection risks. They should refrain from consuming alcohol for at least 48 hours prior to the surgery. They should rest well and sleep early on the night before the surgery.

Otoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia, local anesthesia with sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of surgery and the patient’s wishes.

For general anesthesia, the type of anesthesia used is total intravenous anesthesia (without using anesthetic gases). This type of anesthesia is safe and helps reduce nausea and coughing after surgery. Our patients often report how positive their anesthesia experience was.

Even though the patient does not actually experience pain, it can be unnerving to feel the implant being placed along the jawbone during surgery. A majority of chin augmentation patients undergo the surgery under a light general anesthesia

Diet: You should drink clear liquids immediately following your surgery. The day after surgery, you should begin slowly advancing to a solid diet, starting with bland foods. If you experience any nausea or vomiting, resume a clear diet for another 24 hours.

To minimize the swelling, you should sleep with your head elevated for 3 weeks after the surgery. It is not unusual to have some slightly blood tinged drainage for the first few days after surgery. This will most often significantly improve or disappear by the end of the first week.
