Chin Implants Surgery
Balanced facial features generally depend on two main features, the nose and the chin. The chin is a bony protrusion just below the lips on your lower jaw. It provides balance and sort of an anchor for the face, separating it from your neck. A misshapen or oddly shaped chin can throw off the entire aesthetic balance of your face. In men, a broad, strong and neatly chiseled chin is preferred. For women, a soft, round chin is viewed as more feminine. When you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your chin, Dr. Erez Dayan can perform chin implant surgery at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute.
A chin implant surgery seeks to replace your problematic chin with an implant that can be shaped to resemble the chin you desire. Chin augmentation, also known as genioplasty, uses silicone implants or MEDPOR porous polyethylene implants to add definition, projection, size or shape changes to your chin. A wide variety of implant sizes and shapes are available, and Dr. Dayan will help you with choosing the one that will best produce the look you desire.
Many patients come to Dr. Dayan when considering a nose job, or rhinoplasty, because they feel their face is out of balance. Often, the balance issue is not with their nose but with their chin. After viewing some images and discussing the changes that can be made, many of those patients change their decision and opt for a genioplasty instead, for more pleasing results.
Cosmetic Chin Augmentation in Reno
Dr. Dayan is a renowned cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgeon whose expertise and opinions are highly sought after. His recommendations about what would best enhance your features are to be considered at length. He always has your best interests in mind, and no surgical procedures will be scheduled until you are confident in your decision.
For cosmetic and reconstructive chin augmentation, Dr. Dayan inserts and manipulates the implant through a small incision underneath the chin. This poses less infection risk than an incision inside the mouth and allows for faster healing and less discomfort for his patients. You will be provided medication to help with any discomfort and swelling. Patients can generally expect the swelling to subside within a couple of weeks.
Dr. Dayan will provide you with specific aftercare instructions and follow-up care to ensure you heal properly. You will also visit with him again several weeks post-surgery for a final checkup and examination of your new look.
