Many people are born with a small or “weak” chin. Also, facial tissues tend to droop as we age, leading to chin sag. This can result in an imbalance in proportions and often has the effect of making one’s nose seem larger. Chin enhancement and facial contouring surgery may help you gain confidence and restore balance in your face. By using implants, Dr. Ashpole can sculpt your face to more aesthetic proportions and make you look more youthful and attractive.
About a Chin Augmentation – Chicagoland Plastic Surgery
Chin augmentation can be performed using many different techniques. Dr. Ashpole generally performs his augmentation using implants, which come in different shapes and sizes. This procedure is often done in conjunction with nose surgery for optimal results.
Incisions are made inside your lower lip or hidden below your chin. A small pocket is then created and the implant is placed and secured in position. You will be administered general anesthesia during the procedure to minimize any discomfort.
Patients usually will recover within a few days after the procedure. Bruising and swelling are not uncommon and you may have some discomfort with certain facial movements for a short period.
