What is Chin Augmentation with facial implants?
Pre-formed solid Silastic implants to contour facial structure have been in use since the mid-1960s. We were involved in developing a silastic facial implant for the chin and a technique for implant placement. The safety of this kind of implant is well documented in a study we conducted for the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery in 1995. Silastic chin implants are non-reactive and do not change or disintegrate over time, and are designed to strengthen the facial structure and help prevent sagging and aging.
An attractive, appropriately shaped jawline is an important part of facial harmony. A receding chin produces an imbalance in the facial features. It makes the appearance of a larger nose, accentuates jowling, and may produce an unflattering neckline. In a matter of days, most patients can return to their normal schedules.
Best Candidates for Chin Implants
People that are in good general health with realistic expectations of surgery and results are ideal candidates for facial implants. People who are not currently taking any medications such as cortisone or drugs that elevate blood pressure or cholesterol levels and people whose lifestyle is consistent with a balanced healthy diet are qualified candidates for this surgical procedure to improve their recessed chin.
Chin Implants Consultation
A consultation visit with one of our experienced surgeons is the best way to determine if chin facial implants are right for you. During this initial visit, your bone structure and facial profile will be assessed to ensure that an appropriate plan can be created to give you a balanced appearance. The plastic surgeon will provide information about chin implants, review your medical history and discuss the benefits and potential side effects associated with the procedure.
Preparation for Facial Implants Surgery
Patients are asked to avoid strenuous exercise for at least 2 weeks before surgery and also avoid taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, etc. Patients should not take aspirin 2 weeks before surgery. Smoking should be stopped before the procedure. More precautions will be discussed during your consultation at The Glasgold Group in Princeton, NJ.

How Facial Implants are Done
We perform chin augmentation in our office’s surgery suite with local anesthesia and/or IV sedation. This procedure takes about 1/2 hour and is done through inconspicuous incisions under the chin, leaving a barely-visible scar.
Chin implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, allowing them to be tailored to the particular patient. Following surgery for facial implants, some tenderness or discomfort can occur. Swelling and bruising are normal and will begin to fade within five days. Most patients can return to work within a week, though more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for longer.

Risks & Side Effects of Chin Implants
Scarring (discoloration) of the skin where the incision is made. This is usually minor and can be erased by treatment with laser scar reduction techniques. Numbness around the mouth where the nerve was divided during surgery. This symptom usually disappears after several weeks but may persist for several months. Temporary swelling near the surgical site usually subsides within two to three days after surgery, but may last up to one week.
Facial Implants Aftercare
During the first week after surgery, patients are advised to rest at home and avoid all heavy lifting or strenuous physical activity. Other cosmetic procedures, such as bleaching of teeth, can be performed, but most other facial treatments should wait until 4-6 weeks afterward. Aftercare following chin implants will include care for any wounds that might exist after surgery and information on how to promote fast healing and recovery.
Our high level of training and experience allows us to provide each patient with results that look natural and rapid recovery in the safest environment.
