Chin augmentation in Worcester

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Deborah Ekstrom performs chin augmentation surgery at Salisbury Plastic Surgery in Worcester, MA to contour the chin to a more desirable profile. Chin asymmetry can upset the balance of your face, and can lead to insecurity. Implants or microfat grafting solve this problem and help you get the look you want.

Since every patient is unique, Dr. Bunkis will sit down with you in a private consultation to examine your chin and listen to all your aesthetic concerns and goals. Dr. Ekstrom can also discuss the other cosmetic treatments that can be combined or performed at a later time to further improve your look. Such treatments might include nose surgery or a facelift.

Chin augmentation procedure: what to expect?

A patient will be under deep sedation during chin surgery, which is performed as an outpatient procedure at Orange County Surgery Center.The plastic surgeon will make a small incision on either inside of the mouth or under the chin. An implant, which is made of biocompatible, medical-grade materials, will be placed carefully into the incision. After the implant is placed, the incision will be closed. If the incision was made in the mouth, the patient will have no visible scarring. For incisions under the chin, the scar will be carefully hidden to avoid detection. The entire surgery takes around 1 hour to complete.

Chin augmentation recovery and results

When chin augmentation surgery is finished, a dressing will be applied to the chin for 3 to 4 days. Patients may experience pain, tenderness, and swelling following surgery. Patients may also feel a tight feeling after surgery. These symptoms usually go away in one week. After swelling subsides in a few weeks, patients may view the results of their surgery. Following surgery, the implant will look and feel like normal bone. The implant will be comparable to natural tissue in consistency.

Define your profile with chin augmentation

A short chin not only makes your profile look weak but can also make your nose appear to be large and disproportionate. While some patients think they need a nose job, they may only need chin augmentation surgery to achieve full facial harmony and symmetry.
