» Chin Enlargement
Chin surgery, or mentoplasty, is a
surgical procedure to reshape the chin by enhancement with an implant or
reduction surgery on the bone or fat injection.
Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having
rhinoplasty in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin
may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose.Chin surgery helps
provide a harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better
about the way you look.The chin bone surgery isperformed through an incision
inside the mouth, requires moving the chinbone. The incisions to insert the
implant may be made inside the mouth or on the underside of the chin. In the
latter case, surgery usually leaves a faint scar that is barely visible
underneath the chin.
To permit proper healing following chin augmentation, you may be placed on
a liquid diet for a day or two. The area may be taped or bandaged.
Similarly, in some cases the
cheekbones may be built up (augmented) by placing an implant over them or by
fat grafting. This is usually performed through an incision inside the
mouth, but it may be done through a lower eyelid or brow lift incision. This
surgery can be done under local or general anasthesia and patient allowed
home the same day.
The latest advance in chin augmentation is to do it with fat grafting.In
moderate deformities,fat grafting gives natural results.All the three types
of chin augmentation are done by Dr Anup Dhir at the Image medical centre.
