Am I a Candidate for a Chin Augmentation?
Candidates for a chin augmentation have concerns about the size, projection, or contour of the chin. People should be healthy nonsmokers or will need to stop smoking before the procedure. Dr. Lanfranchi will make sure people have reasonable expectations of what results they should expect.
What Results Can I Expect From a Chin Augmentation?
You can expect to see immediate results, with more chin projection and a more balanced facial appearance. Dr. Lanfranchi chooses implants that will provide the best results while harmonizing with your own facial features for a naturally enhanced appearance.
Like most other silicone implants, these have been rigorously tested for safety and can remain in place, in most cases, for a lifetime. Dr. Lanfranchi will discuss with you any signs that your implant may need a replacement or any possible concerns you may have.
What is Recovery Like From a Chin Augmentation?
Complete recovery from a chin augmentation lasts one to three weeks. Most of the swelling resolves within the first week, but you may need to wait up to a month to see your results without any swelling. You can return to your usual activities after a few days, but do not exert yourself or cause any stress to the chin area.
