Chin Advancement and Implant

Chin advancement using surgical implants can adjust the underlying structure of the face, providing well balance to the facial features. Our comprehensive guide will walk you through everything you need to know about the procedure, from initial consultation to post-operative care.

What is Chin Advancement and Chin Implant?

Chin advancement, also known as genioplasty, is a common method for chin augmentation. During this procedure, a medical-grade silicone implant, tailored to suit one’s face, is securely placed on top of the chin bone. Local anesthesia is typically required for the entire procedure, which is usually completed within an hour

Chin advancement using the patient’s own bone is another way of enhancing the lower part of one’s face. The surgeon horizontally cuts the bottom part of the chin bone, slides it forward, and secures it in the new position with medical-grade screws.   This method requires the use of general anesthesia. Then after surgery, the patient will be closely monitored in the hospital for about two days. Lastly, he/she may discharged with instruction to follow up in about 7 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have chin liposuction with chin advancement surgery?

Our experts will make a pre-surgical assessment to determine whether this combination is good for you or not.

What is the recovery time?

Pain and swelling will gradually diminish over 1-2 weeks for a chin implant and up to 3 weeks in chin advancement surgery.

Will the scars be obvious?

You could either have an inconspicuous scar under the chin or no visible scars at all, depending on whether an extra-oral or intra-oral surgical technique employed.

What will be my condition after surgery?

A temporary limitation in the movement of the mouth and lips. Your doctor will order dietary restrictions until your incisions heal. Discomfort may be more severe and prolonged with chin advancement than chin augmentation.

What are the potential risks?

When an implant is used, skin thinning could develop over the implant, or trauma to the chin could lead to implant displacement. Without these complications, the silicone implant can stay in place for your lifetime.

How do I prepare for chin advancement surgery?

To avoid complications and reduce risk factors you need to stop smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, taking hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medicines. It will take at least two weeks before your schedule. People with diseases need surgical clearance from their medical specialist.
