Chin Enlargement Surgery Information:

How does chin enlargement surgery work?

Chin implants are mainly used to add fullness and balance to a face with a receding chin. You may wish to combine chin augmentation with a face lift, nose surgery or any other facial procedure to enhance your appearance.

Chin implant surgery is a fairly simple procedure to perform. Patients can usually be discharged from our clinic post procedure, without the need for an overnight stay. The procedure normally takes approximately one hour to complete and is carried out under general anaesthetic.
The surgery involves making an incision either within the mouth, or underneath the chin. The implant is then inserted through the incision and carefully located to achieve the desired result.
The incision is closed using dissolvable stitches and a surgical dressing is applied to support the implant whilst your face heals and to reduce the risk of infection.

What about recovery?

Initially, you will experience numbness in your lower lip. There will be some discomfort and swelling in the chin and jaw area for several days after your procedure. You may initially have some difficulty smiling and talking, and you may experience a temporary stretched/tightened sensation. There may be some bruising around your chin and your neck.
If the incision was made in your mouth, you should follow a liquid and soft food diet for the first few days after surgery. Rinsing your mouth after eating will keep the dissolvable stitches clean. These will dissolve within two weeks.
Normal activity usually can be resumed around a week after surgery, although it will take around 6 weeks for all the swelling to settle down.

And aftercare?

You will have an aftercare appointment with your surgeon the following morning and everyday thereafter in order to check your recovery and for you to ask any questions.

You must arrive 2 days before surgery to have the right size implant fitted.
