A well-defined jawline is the cornerstone of a balanced, attractive face for both men and women. When the jawline recedes, it can be augments by placing custom fit Midtown Manhattan chin implants which will add strength to a weak chin. Chin enhancement surgery, also called genioplasty, improves contours of the chin, neck and jawline. Typically, surgery involves placement of an implant around a patient’s existing chin bone to augment the size and shape of the chin and achieve a more naturally attractive balance between facial features. When performed by a qualified, experienced cosmetic surgeon, chin enhancement can provide a permanent solution to improve a weak or recessed chin.
Chin implant surgery is usually an outpatient procedure, performed using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. A small incision is made either underneath the chin or inside the mouth. Through this incision, the cosmetic surgeon creates space for the chin implant and fits it around the chin bone. The Midtown Manhattan chin implants surgery typically takes less than 1 hour to perform. Following surgery, the incision is closed with sutures and the chin may be bandaged. The implant is made of biocompatible material, so the risk of rejection is minimal. If you would like to consult with Dr. Hoffman about a chin augmentation, give him a call today.
