Well-defined facial features have always been considered an indication of beauty. A strong chin can help provide balance and definition to your face, enhancing many of your other features, such as the nose, jaw, and neckline. While there are several types of surgery to advance and enhance your chin profile, Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro usually utilize chin implants to provide the needed enhancements.
Grossman Plastic Surgery can perform chin implants to create a stronger chin and lengthen your entire face, or simply to provide needed facial balance. All of our chin implant procedures are customized to address the unique physical characteristics of your face.
Am I a Candidate for Chin Implants?
If you would like to correct an undersized chin that is affecting the overall balance of your face, then chin implants may be an excellent option for you. Ideal chin implant candidates are also:
- In good physical health
- Emotionally stable
- Realistic about their expectations for the procedure
The Chin Implant Procedure
Your chin implant procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under general or local anesthesia. It should take an hour to an hour and a half to complete.
Denver facial plastic surgeons Dr. John A. Grossman and Dr. Philippe A. Capraro will usually make the incision beneath the chin in the infernal crease. They will create a pocket for your implant in the chin. Once your implant is inserted and positioned properly, it will be secured with sutures.
Recovery and Follow-Up Care
You may experience some tightness and swelling in the chin area for a few days following your procedure. Our implant surgeons may prescribe pain medication to alleviate any discomfort you may feel. You will need to eat soft foods for about a week. If necessary, the sutures will be removed in approximately one week.
Your results should be noticeable immediately, and they will continue to improve gradually as swelling and bruising subsides. You can generally return to work within a week and resume a regular exercise regimen within two weeks.
Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro have more than four decades of combined experience performing chin implant procedures. They balance technical skill and artistic sensibility with every procedure in order to ensure that you will receive aesthetically beautiful results that will enhance your overall appearance in a natural way. For this reason, high profile patients across the world regularly turn to Grossman Plastic Surgery for all their plastic surgery needs.
