Chin Augmentation Seattle Information Provided by Female Plastic Surgeon in Seattle

 

THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR A CHIN AUGMENTATION

The best candidate for chin augmentation, or mentoplasty, is the individual with a receding chin and a normal dental bite. For those with a bite dysfunction, jaw surgery, in conjunction with mentoplasty, may be necessary. The procedure commonly produces a significant improvement in the profile and frequently makes the nose look smaller even when nothing is done to the nose.

If you live in the Seattle area and want a cosmetic surgery procedure such as chin augmentation , contact Dr. Rekow of the Cosmetic Surgery Associates of Seattle to schedule a consultation to see if you are a candidate.

PRIOR TO CHIN SURGERY

At your consultation with Dr. Rekow a careful examination of your face is conducted. Dr. Rekow describes the type of anesthesia to be used, the procedure, what results might realistically be expected and possible risks and complications.

CHIN AUGMENTATION SURGERY

There are two basic procedures used in mentoplasty: one involves moving the chin bone forward and the other, the use of a plastic chin implant. A chin implant, constructed of silicone is placed deep to the soft tissue of the chin directly in front of the jawbone to create a new chin line and profile. There are two different incisions that can be used-under the chin through the skin, or inside the mouth. Dr. Rekow usually uses the approach through the inside of the mouth avoiding a visible scar. When a chin implant procedure is performed in conjunction with a facelift and an incision beneath the chin is being made anyway to tighten the neck muscles, Dr. Rekow then uses that incision to place the implant.

AFTER CHIN AUGMENTATION SURGERY

Discomfort connected with chin augmentation surgery is usually minimal and easily controlled with oral pain medication. Patients are up and around the day of surgery. The diet is restricted to clear liquids for the remainder of the day of surgery then the diet is progressively advanced to a regular diet. The dressing is removed within a few days. Most of the swelling is gone within a week but subtle improvement may continue to be seen for a couple of months.
