What is a Chin Implant?
The insertion of a chin implant may be a perfect procedure for you if you desire a stronger chin. Augmentation of your chin can improve both your lateral profile and forward facing appearance. It can reduce the appearance of a weak chin and excess neck skin while making a nose which might appear overly big, appear suddenly much more proportionate and balanced.
Dr. Eric Schaffer will perform a detailed confidential consultation with you in which he considers your facial features as well as your specific goals and desires. Options for improving the appearance of the chin/neck region which may be discussed with you include chin implants, ostectomy with bone advancement , soft tissue fillers such as Juvederm, liposuction of the neck, either individually or in combination with each other.
Chin Implant Procedure
When a smaller degree of chin enhancement is desired, the injection of a filler such as Juvederm or Radiesse can be utilized. This is performed as an in-office procedure without the need for anesthesia. The down time is usually minimal, if any.
Chin Implant Results
The results of Juvederm/Radiesse chin augmentation may last from 1-3 years. One advantage of this technique is that additional filler can gradually be added over time. This allows for a great degree of flexibility and fine tuning of the final result. Moreover, the gradual changes in your appearance may be less perceptible to other individuals.
