For patients seeking a more balanced facial appearance, as well as those with weak chins, recessed chins or who desire for a more defined chin that features more prominently in their look, chin augmentation - through the use of facial surgery and facial implants can provide the solution. It is also not uncommon to combine chin augmentation with rhinoplasty to achieve overall facial balance. In fact, when Dr. Sherris evaluates a patient for rhinoplasty he is also looking at the balance and harmony of the overall face. Many times chin augmentation is the component that will complete overall harmony. A weak chin also can make a large nose look more prominent.
Chin implant surgery involves the insertion of an artificial implant, typically made from GORE-TEX® (polytetrafluoroethylene), in front of the jaw bone. A small incision is made under the chin in order to insert the implant. This also allows the incision line to be hidden from view. Once the implant is in position, it will be sutured into place with dissolvable sutures, which are typically absorbed in approximately 10 days. The chin will be dressed with a tape dressing for a week and the sutures under the chin where the incision was made are removed at a week. Chin implants come in a variety sizes and are customized to the patient.
At our Buffalo practice, we are well versed in a multitude of facial procedures and can determine the best treatment option for our patients based on their needs; chin augmentation is the single most effective way of defining the shape and size of the chin, and we have witnessed firsthand the positive impact it has on individuals and bringing balance to the overall face alone or when combined with rhinoplasty.
