A very prominent chin can give off the appearance of your nose being too small, and potentially throwing balance of the face off. One the other hand, a weaker chin can make a normal nose appear too large, make a prominent nose seem oversized, and give the appearance of a ‘turkey’ neck. Chin augmentation, or chin implants, can solve both problems.

The Chin Implant Procedure
A chin implant must be performed under some kind of anesthesia. The most common choices for a cheek implant are IV sedation and general anesthesia.
Dr Blinski will make an incision where the implant is supposed to go, dissect tissue from the bone, and then insert the implant either directly on top your chin bone. The implant will be customized to make sure that the look suits your features, and will be sutured into place. Some times, the implants won’t be sutured in place, and only the pocket holding it will be sutured closed, relying on the collagen in your chin to secure the implants.
Dr Blinski then sutures up the incision and, if the implant was not sutured in place themselves, wrap your head to hold them in place while you heal.
Chin Implant Recovery
After undergoing chin implant surgery, someone will need to take you home and remain with you for a minimum of 24 hours. In very few circumstances, Dr. Blinski may suggest a short stay in the hospital.
Your head and face may be taped, especially if the implant was not sutured into place. Patient’s generally experience mild discomfort and pain, especially at the incision site.
Bruising and swelling usually takes about 3 weeks to subside, but can last up to several months. Generally speaking, you can return to work after 1 to 2 weeks.
