Chin Implants

Albuquerque Chin Implant Surgery

The chin plays an important role in the overall aesthetic appearance of the face. A weak chin can make a nose seem more prominent while a jutting chin can throw the symmetry of your face off balance. If you desire to have a stronger profile with a chin that enhances your best features, chin implant surgery may be an option for you.

Chin implant surgery is a way to increase or change the size and projection of your chin. The procedure is customized to each individual patient and may incorporate artificial material to obtain desired results.

Chin Implant Procedure – Chin implant surgery is an outpatient procedure. Incisions may be made inside your mouth or just beneath your chin to allow Dr. Escudero to place your implant with no visible scars. Eye lifts, face lifts, brow lifts, nose jobs and ear pinning are other procedures that may be performed at the same time as chin implant plastic surgery.

When your chin implant has been successfully placed, Dr. Escudero will tape your chin to support your new implant and minimize swelling. You may experience mild pain which may be managed with pain medication. Bruising and swelling is typical, but should go away within several days after your surgery. You may also find it difficult to talk and smile for the first couple days after surgery; this should improve in a short time.
