A chin implant comes in a variety of shapes and materials. The most commonly placed implants by doctor Alghoul are anatomic silicone implants, which have the same natural shape of the chin and are made of hard silicone. The procedure is usually performed with a neck lift or during Rhinoplasty. A small incision is placed under the chin and tight pocket is created over the chin immediately on bone and the implant is introduced into the pocket and secured in the midline to prevent movement and migration.
What to Expect
During a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Alghoul can review your candidacy for chin implant and discuss your aesthetic goals and the size and shape that will suite you best. For some patients, Dr. Alghoul may find that a rhinoplasty procedure may help bring the facial features into balance. He will discuss all of your treatment options.
Chin implant is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. You may engage in light activity the day following surgery. Return to normal activity, including exercise, takes up to two weeks. Antibiotics are prescribed for five days.
