Chin enhancement is typically achieved through either non-surgical or surgical means. Non-surgical methods involve the use of injectable fillers such as hyaluronic acid, poly-L-lactic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite and polymethylmethacrylate injectables. These are administered by injections into the chin to add definition, lift, and volume. Unfortunately, the results from these treatments are not long-lasting or permanent.
Instead, Dr. Rachel Walker of the Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas may instead recommend surgical chin enhancement. Surgical methods for chin enhancement include the placement of chin implants, which are silicone implants placed in the pre-jowl depression to increase projection.
Will the Placement of Chin Implants Look Natural?
Yes, when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon, chin implants can look very natural. Chin implants are usually made of a silicone or composite material, which is soft and pliable for a natural feel and appearance. Dr. Rachel Walker will work with each patient to determine the exact type of implant that’s best suited for their individual anatomy as well as to achieve the desired results. Additionally, she focuses on using techniques that create unnoticeable incisions to minimize scarring once healed. With her expertise and attention to detail, you can expect to have a naturally beautiful result with little downtime involved.
What Kind of Recovery Period Should I Expect After Chin Implant Surgery?
Recovery time after surgical chin enhancement usually lasts around 1-2 weeks. Immediately after the procedure, patients may experience some swelling and bruising in the area, which may last for several days. During this time, it is recommended to rest and avoid strenuous activities or exercise that can put undue strain on the area. Pain medication may be provided to help reduce any discomfort. After a few days, most bruising and swelling should resolve with proper care and rest. Dr. Rachel Walker also recommends follow-up visits to monitor your progress during your recovery period. With proper postoperative care and patience, you will soon enjoy beautiful results from chin enhancement!
