Chin Augmentation – Require for Balance Facial Look!

How the process works?

The surgical implants can alter the underplaying structure of the face, offering better balance to the facial features. Often, the treatment is not only performed at the time of Rhinoplasty but also it helps to maintain the balance the facial proportions. It may be achieved by manipulation of the jaw bone and augmentation utilizing for offers a predictable correction than a higher use of prosthetic implants.

What are the benefits of this procedure?

This procedure is still draw the more popularity because it’s a relatively easy operation for the patient while introducing noticeable changes in the silhouette of the face. This procedure is usually performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeon or plastic surgeons. The surgeons can offer the best information with high end technology for the patient. The chin augmentation uses synthetic implant for making chin more pronounced. And as the chin implants have evolved that they have got much larger & longer, concept known as extended or else anatomic design. Instead old style small breast implant that just brings central part of chin forward, anatomic design has the longer wings and sides, which extend further back over jaw line. And this allows more natural transition between implant & jaw bone and visible step off between two is also avoided.

Whereas, this is better chin implant design, the increased curvature & length needs longer incision for that to get placed through. The longer wings of implant is prone to folding & malposition since, they are thin & their back edges should get unfolded & lay flat to not causing visible distortion after the surgery. Most common chin implant complication is the lateral wing asymmetry and malposition. As, I use screw fixation to secure the implants, I have also developed technique to reduce risk of the extended chin implant. After implant is sized, then it is cut in the half down middle. By doing, implant is inserted as 2 separate halves & one side of long implant is not at all affected by what other half of curvature is doing. Two halves are brought together in middle & separate screws are also placed in every half.

Split chin implant method allows for small incision to get used as just half of implant needs to get inserted at a time. It is very simple to check that every side of implant is positioned & unfolded to end of created pockets. Screws secure both halfs of implant & make that feel & function again as single piece.
