Facial Plastic Surgery

From a smile to a frown, our face portrays our emotions and identifies us as individuals. As we age there are normal changes that occur not only in the quality of our skin but also in the underlying tissues of the face. We can develop deep wrinkles, sagging eyelids or brows, jowls and the like.

Chin Augmentation

Atlanta Chin Augmentation Plastic Surgery.

Traditionally people with a sunken chin had to undergo a large surgical procedure advancing their jaw bone to correct their appearance. Luckily, we can place an implant to create the appearance of a more symmetric and pleasing chin. Alternatively, this can be accomplished non-surgically with injectables. When viewed from the side the chin looks balanced when it projects as far as the lower lip.. A retruded chin often causes the corners of the mouth to turn downward and look "unhappy." There can also be a loss of balance with other facial features. Chin augmentation may be achieved through several techniques. Your surgeon will discuss these with you and create a unique plan based on your needs. Often a chin implant is utilized.

Procedure: If a chin implant is being placed, the surgeon selects the proper size and shape implant to enhance your appearance and inserts it into a pocket over the front of the jawbone. The incision to create the pocket and insert the implant is placed inside the mouth (along the lower lip) or in the skin just under the chin area. If an implant is not being utilized, the surgery is more extensive and will involve making cuts in your mouth as well.

Results: Usually, the chin is taped after surgery to minimize swelling and discomfort. Sutures in the skin may be removed in five to seven days. If an intra-oral incision is used, the sutures will dissolve. Chewing will probably be limited immediately after chin surgery, and a liquid and soft food diet may be required for a few days after surgery. Most patients feel a stretched, tight sensation after the surgery, but this usually subsides in a week. After approximately six weeks, most swelling will be gone. Rigorous activity may be prohibited for the first few weeks after surgery. Normal activity can be resumed after one to two weeks.
