A chin implant improves your profile and overall facial balance. Chin augmentation uses implants to make masculine or feminine features more prominent. If you want to enhance the appearance of a recessed or small chin, a facial implant in Scottsdale will help.

What Are Chin Implants?

A chin implant adds contour to your lower face, especially if you have a receding chin. This helps to better define your jawline and profile.

Chin implants are typically made of silicone and are available in various sizes, shapes, and styles. Dr. David A. Hecht will help you decide which implant suits you best based on your goals and needs.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facial Implant?

Anyone with a recessed or small chin that does not stick out far enough from the face and is not in proportion with the nose, forehead, and other facial features may get a chin implant.

The most suitable candidates for a chin implant are people who do not smoke, do not suffer from a jaw disorder, have no jawbone deformities, and have reached skeletal maturity. They should have positive and realistic expectations of the surgery’s outcome, and they must be in good overall health.

Your Chin Implant Consultation

During the consultation, you will discuss your concerns about your chin with Dr. Hecht. He will go over the medical techniques used for facial implant surgery. Dr. Hecht will assess your chin and jaw, along with your medical history.

He may also recommend a chin implant to patients who want to get rhinoplasty, because a recessed chin tends to make a nose look bigger. These two surgeries may be combined to save money and reduce recovery time.

During the consultation, Dr. Hecht will consider your age, skin type, and general attitude toward getting a chin implant. He will tell you what to expect during and after the procedure, which type of anesthesia will be used, where the surgery will be performed, and which potential complications may be involved.

The Procedure

During the procedure, Dr. Hecht will make a small incision in the crease underneath the chin, stretch it gently, and insert the chin implant. The implant is made of synthetic material that feels like natural skin tissue and is available in different sizes and shapes. It will be customized to fit the patient’s facial configuration. Dr. Hecht will then close the incision with very fine sutures.

The chin implant surgery usually takes around an hour. The patient will be left with no visible post-surgical marks, because the incision is concealed in the crease below the chin.

The Recovery Process

After facial implant surgery, your chin will be covered with a sterile dressing for several days. You may feel mild discomfort and tenderness around the chin area, which may be relieved with prescription medication. You may also feel like your skin is stretched or tight, but this sensation will disappear in around a week.

You may resume your regular routine after 10 to 14 days. Swelling may be present and will disappear in about six weeks. It will help to avoid strenuous activities during this time.

How Much Does a Chin Implant Cost?

The total cost of a facial implant usually depends on anesthesia fees, surgeon’s fees, hospital costs, prescription medications, and post-surgery garments. The price of the procedure may also be affected by the surgical techniques used. Financing is available through CareCredit and Prosper Healthcare Lending.
