You should discuss the placement of the scars and your desires for a particular profile. The chin implant pictures on this page demonstrate what can be accomplished. Chin implant prices vary depending on the type of procedure done, and after the examination, Dr. Kirk will go over the cost of chin implant surgery with you.
Your Chin Augmentation will be performed by Dr. Sofia Kirk at her office in Jacksonville, FL.
WHAT TO EXPECT
This procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, using either an incision under the chin or inside the gum line in the mouth. A permanent implant device is then used and secured in place deep within the tissues directly on top of the bone. The procedure lasts 1-2 hours, and is done on an outpatient basis.
RECOVERING FROM CHIN IMPLANT SURGERY
Swelling and bruising are to be expected but these issues will subside over time. The recovery process should not be painful and any pain you do experience can be managed with medication. The down time after the procedure lasts only a few days, and you can get back to your normal routine pretty quickly. The stitches are usually removed about 1 week later, but the swelling may take up to 6 weeks to subside. Chin Implant before and after photos are best taken about 6 months after the surgery after the swelling has completely subsided and are best evaluated from the profile view.
Our team at Posh Plastic Surgery will provide you with post-operative instructions that will help you throughout the recovery process. Follow-up visits will be scheduled to ensure that the chin is recovering well and that there are no complications.
