CHIN AUGMENTATION

  • ANAESTHETIC – GENERAL
  • STAY IN HOSPITAL – 1 DAY AND 1 NIGHT
  • RECOVERY – 5 DAYS

If you have always been dissatisfied with the shape or angle of your chin, or have suffered an injury in that area and wish to correct the problem, then you are more than likely a very good candidate for Chin Augmentation Surgery.

Chin Augmentation Surgery is a relatively straight forward procedure that can be performed under local anaesthetic - however to make the procedure more comfortable for you most surgeons advocate a general anaesthetic followed by a restful night in hospital.

As with all surgical procedures surgeons differ in terms of the technique employed in Chin Augmentation Surgery. However rest assured that once your special case has been reviewed, and your expectations regarding the outcome of the procedure have been assessed, the best technique for you personally will be recommended.

Surgery is usually performed via a small inconspicuous incision either under the chin or in the mouth. Your chin prosthesis (implant) is then inserted under your Periosteum and from there directly onto your Mandible. The opening is then neatly closed by fully absorbable stitches.

In order to correct whatever your particular problem may be, a special chin prosthesis will be carefully selected for you by your surgeon. Your desires and aspirations will be taken into account prior to surgery and you will also be encouraged to ask as many questions relating to the outcome of the procedure, and the procedure itself, as you like.

A quick recovery from Chin Augmentation Surgery is almost always experienced.
