Procedures for Chin Augmentation
Chin augmentation is either a surgical procedure carried out to reshape the chin or is carried out by enhancing it with an implant or by reduction surgery on the bone. The most preferred procedure of chin augmentation is carried out with an implant that provides better projection and shape to the chin. However, this procedure is recommended to people who have normal functioning teeth and jaw development. The chin implant surgery in some cases is performed under local anesthetic combined with a sedative but this surgery is commonly performed under a general anesthetic. The surgery for implanting chin is either carried out from under the chin or through an incision on the inside of the mouth. The surgeon will select the chin implant of ideal size and shape and insert it into a packet over the front of the jawbone. Small incision is made to create the pocket and the implant is placed from the mouth or in the skin just under the chin. Chin implant procedure is regarded as the most safe, reliable and long lasting chin augmentation process.
After the chin augmentation surgery, you might experience some discomfort, swelling and stretching on the chin. However, you will be prescribed with pain relieving medicines and antibiotics that will ease your discomfort and prevent infection. You will be required to take rest for 8-10 days after which you can return to normal work. Risks and complications after the surgery is quite rare, however in some cases you might experience shifting of the implant, scarring of the chin or numbness on the chin, all these problems if immediately reported to the surgeon can be handled efficiently. The final results after the surgery will become visible after three to four months.
