Chin Enlargement Providence
Who is a candidate? If you have a receding chin. A chin that looks too small in comparison with other facial features. Desire for increased chin prominence.
Intended result: An improved profile. A more attractive jawline that creates a better balance between the chin and other facial features.
- The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under MAC (Monitored Anesthesia Care).
- An incision is made inside the lower lip or under the chin, and an implant is placed.
- In an alternative method called sliding osteotomy, a portion of the chin bone is permanently moved forward.
Recuperation and healing: The patient goes home with a small pressure dressing over the chin. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Swelling, tenderness, and possible local numbness gradually subside for a month or two.
Other options: Additional procedures that would enhance the result are: Liposuction of the neck, nose reshaping (Rhinoplasty), Neck Lift, or Laser Skin Resurfacing.
Insurance guidelines: This procedure is considered cosmetic and therefore is not covered by insurance. The patient is responsible for payment.
