What happens during the chin augmentation procedure?
The chin augmentation procedure is performed by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Attenello in a fully accredited operating suite and the incision is very small and hidden underneath your chin. The procedure can be performed as an outpatient procedure, and patients can leave for home the same day. The surgeon can use either general or local anesthesia during the procedure.
The chin implant procedure begins with the surgeon making a small incision either along the area below the chin, or inside the mouth. The implant is perfectly sized to fit your face. Fine sutures are placed, and a small bandage is used to help decrease the swelling and to help keep the implant in place. Small sutures and bandages are enough to help the area heal post-surgery.
BEST plastic surgeon out there!
BEST plastic surgeon out there! I had a procedure done over a year ago and the results are fantastic…It is not possible to be any happier! Now I go back for my quarterly maintenance (when I can catch her!) and have never looked better.
Biggest thanks to Dr. Attenello!
How long does a chin augmentation take?
When done alone, a chin augmentation procedure can be completed within an hour. If done alongside other procedures, this time can be longer. Oftentimes, superior results are achieved with complementary procedures. A chin implant is often performed with a rhinoplasty to achieve the most ideal, natural appearing results. Chin augmentation can also be performed in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a neck lift or a facelift. These procedures ensure that the client can achieve their desired results from the surgery.
What is the recovery period for a chin implant procedure?
After a chin implant procedure, mild swelling can be normal, though bruising is usually rare. Most patients can resume social activity the next day as the downtime is usually minimal; however, patients should avoid intense physical activity. You’ll be able to return to work within a week. Any discomfort or pain should be minimal and can be managed with medication. The area around your chin may feel sore for an hour or two after your surgery but after that, the pain will dissipate.
How Much Does Chin Augmentation Cost?
The overall cost of a chin augmentation / chin implant is affected by anesthesia fees, hospital fees, post-surgery garments, and medications. Price is also impacted by medical tests, surgeon’s fees, and the exact techniques employed.
