About Chin Implants
Chin augmentation using implants is a popular cosmetic treatment that reshapes the chin for patients with a recessed chin or one they feel is too weak. Often when a chin is too small, it can create an undefined profile. Surgical chin augmentation can be performed to enhance your chin, and one of the most effective is using an implant to reconstruct a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. Our Colorado Springs, CO plastic surgeons offer various options to consider for your chin augmentation. Implants are manufactured in numerous sizes and shapes to help give you the exact aesthetic look you desire, and this treatment can also be combined with neck liposuction for a fully sleek, contoured appearance. We encourage you to contact the Institute of Plastic Surgery today to learn more about this procedure and what we recommend to help you look your best.
Chin augmentation is a treatment for for men as well as women. If you are unhappy with the shape and appearance of your chin and do not like undefined profile it offers, chin augmentation can improve the lower portion of your face. It's also fairly common for our patients to combine rhinoplasty along with their chin augmentation procedure. This combined approach offers great reassurance for the features of your face to be proportionate and balanced.
"35 years ago, I had breast implant surgery. Over the course of those years, my breasts had encapsulated causing my breasts to look totally abnormal and very hard to the touch. Fast forward, I needed them removed. Dr Jain was recommended and I couldn't be more pleased. He replaced my implants (both of which had ruptured, but I didn't know it) with the type of implant that much reduces the possibility of encapsulation and no chance of old-school rupture. The results are simply stunning. Soft, normal shaped and just the right size. The surgery was a bit complicated, but Dr. Jain's expertise was key in getting the results I wanted. Dr. Jain is gifted, and very attuned to the needs of the patient. He gave me a realistic description of what to expect and he delivered. His staff is wonderful--very attentive and supportive. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend."- P.D. / Google / Nov 20, 2018
"I highly recommend Institute of Plastic Surgery. Very professional and caring Dr’s and staff. The office Manager Lucy is awesome! I had laser done on dark spots on my face. I never had anything like that done before. Everything was explained thorough and it went very well with great results. Thank you for everything and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!"- B.T. / Facebook / Apr 24, 2019
"Dr. Dash is absolutely amazing!! I felt so comfortable with her instantly and she took so much time to explain everything to me in such detail in a way that was so easy to understand about the beast augmentation I wanted! She was amazing at settling my nerves right before I went into the OR! I would recommend her to anyone! So knowledgeable and doesn’t sugar coat any risks associated... I couldn’t have been any happier with my experience with her and all the staff there! They have all been so nice and make you feel so welcome from the first visit."- D.V. / Facebook / Apr 17, 2019
"Dr. Dash is amazing! She is super smart and funny and did a great job on my breast reduction. Everything was explained well and pain was managed great. I looked at several surgeons and liked that she doesn't use drains (and apparently I didn't need them because everything went fine without). My neck and shoulder pain are virtually gone! I can do cardio without getting a black eye ;-) Thanks Dr. Dash!"- B.V. / Google / Mar 21, 2019
"As a TG female it can be difficult to find someone who you trust, who is respectful, and who can really understand the importance of how you look. My mother and I interviewed surgeons from Boulder to Colorado Springs, and we both knew from the moment we met Dr. Dash that she was the only one we wanted to work with. The support staff was professional, courteous, and always greeted us with smiles. I really impressed that they were always on time, including the day of surgery, which was not the case with many of the other surgeons I interviewed. What’s most important though is the results, and I can’t put it in words how happy I am! My breasts not only look natural, but Dr. Dash was able to give me the size and shape I always wanted. I healed quickly, with minimal scaring that you can barely see 6 weeks after, and LOVE my body as a result. This has been one of the best choices of my life, and I am so glad I chose Dr. Dash! Thank you Dr. Dash!"- C.D. / Google / Feb 26, 2019
During chin augmentation, general anesthesia will be administered, or, in some cases, IV sedation. The incision is placed under your chin. In this incision, a surgical pocket is formed to hold the implant device in its proper place, which involves shaving some of the bone to create grooves to securely keep your implant in position. The chin implant is inserted in the opening and positioned on top of the bone, below your lower lip. Sometimes, the incision can be created inside the lip where it connects to your gumline. Both incision points help to conceal scars. Tiny sutures are used to safely close the incisions, and your lower face will be wrapped with bandages.
What to Expect
Cosmetic chin treatment generally produces immediate gratifying results, which can be extremely exciting for our patients. Even though facial swelling and discoloration and bruising will be present right after your surgery, this is temporary. In most cases, chin augmentation takes about two weeks to heal. Strenuous activity should not be performed during this time period. This particular surgery has extremely high success rates, and by having it under the hands of a trained surgeon, your outcome will appear natural and proportionate.
