SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT
A strong, well-proportioned chin can give you that confident, assertive look that opens doors. If you feel your chin is too small and receding, or too big and protruding, we can help you shape it into the optimal proportion for your face.
A permanent solid silicone implant is inserted beneath your chin muscles to make the chin larger or better defined. Dr. Karishma will carefully evaluate your chin and customize the right implant size and shape for you. This procedure takes only 30-45 minutes and can be done under local anesthesia.
A portion of the chin bone is removed to reduce an overly protruding chin. This procedure takes about an hour and needs to be done under general anesthesia. You will also need to wear a chin strap for a week. Since the bone is being cut, we will also give you adequate pain medications.
After chin augmentation, you will have a small bandage at the incision site. A small tube will also be inserted to drain excess fluid, which will be removed after 2 to 3 days. You can go home with this small tube and return to our centre for dressings. Pain, swelling and minimal bruising is expected following the procedure, which will subside in 2 weeks. Make up can be worn to camouflage the bruising while going out. For the first few days post procedure, you’ll need to sleep with your head raised over 2-3 pillows to reduce the swelling. Most people get back to their work in one week.
