Through advances in medical science, Americans are increasingly able to achieve the facial structure and body of their dreams.
As a matter of fact, in 2016, Americans spent over 16 billion dollars on cosmetic procedures. This upward trend in surgeries come on the heels of techniques that offer patients maximum results with low risks.
Among all of the cosmetic surgeries performed today, one that stands out as one of the fastest growing is chin implants.
What Are Chin Implants?
Chin implants are silicone implants that are custom fitted to patient’s unique jawline that give them the look they desire.
Procedures are gender neutral meaning both men and woman can enjoy the benefits an implant procedure can bring to their look.
What Are the Benefits of a Chin Implant?
If you have a recessed chin or feel that it looks weak, implants can make subtle adjustments that will correct flaws with your jawline.
With an implant in your chin, you can expect to have a more defined neck and jaw. You can also expect improvements if you suffer from a “double chin”.
Chin implants can provide patients value beyond having a great looking chin. Implants in the chin area give your whole a face a more balanced, fuller look that can holistically improve your beauty.
How Is the Procedure Performed?
Getting an implant in your chin is a simple, minimally invasive procedure. A small incision is made typically underneath your chin while you’re under local anesthesia. The incision is made in a way that follows a natural crease in your jaw so after the implant is inserted, the minor post surgery scar is not visible.
Once the incision occurs, the implant goes in and stitches or sutures are used to close the surgery area. Procedures normally take 45 minutes to an hour in total.
Results and Side-effects
When performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon, results are extraordinary and long-lasting. Aging can alter the contour of your face and delude the effects of your chin surgery but overall, the results you experience will be permanent.
In the way of side effects, again, when surgery is performed by a qualified surgeon, side-effects are rare. Surgeries in rare cases can experience side effects that include scarring, unstable shifting implants and side-effects from anesthesia.
To Wrap It Up
Chin implants are an excellent choice when seeking cost-effective cosmetic surgery that will compliment the overall look of your face. Not only are implants for your chin an excellent choice by themselves, but this type of procedure can complement other procedures like brow lifts, neck liposuction and more to achieve the perfect look.
