If you have a weak chin, your lower face can look loose and undefined. You can have a stronger chin and improved facial contours with chin augmentation. With one procedure in the comfortable setting of the Lanfranchi Center, you can have a firmer, more sculpted chin.
How to Fix a Weak Chin
The definition and shape of your chin come from the shape of your bone structure and the soft tissues overlying it. Chin augmentation uses a small implant to enhance your chin. This produces an immediate change in your facial features, giving your chin more shape, projection, and definition.
If your weak chin comes with other issues like loose skin around the lower face and neck, Dr. Lanfranchi may recommend combining chin augmentation with a neck lift. He may also recommend a TLC Lift™ that combines a neck lift with a lower facelift for full lower face rejuvenation. Chin augmentation also combines well with neck liposuction, both working together to improve the appearance of the double chin area of the neck.
How Does Chin Augmentation Work?
Chin augmentation usually takes about an hour. Dr. Lanfranchi will perform your chin augmentation in the comfort and convenience of the Lanfranchi Center. Since he uses a local anesthetic with oral sedation, you will not have any of the risks or recovery from general anesthesia.
Dr. Lanfranchi uses a special type of silicone implant that fills out the front and sides of the chin for a natural, balanced appearance. He will choose from a range of sizes to give you just the right amount of chin enhancement to achieve symmetry with the rest of your facial features.
What Results Will I See From Chin Augmentation?
You will be amazed at how chin augmentation can enhance your entire face. A weak chin can leave your jaw and lower face looking undefined. The addition of a chin implant gives you a stronger chin, makes your jawline look more defined, and makes the area under your chin look slimmer.
How Long is Recovery From Chin Augmentation?
Most people experience some swelling, and you may also see some bruising. Most people can return to non-physical work within five to seven days. You may be able to return in as little as three days. Swelling will go down over a week, letting you see your reshaped, stronger-looking results. It may take a month or more before your implant has fully settled and the swelling has resolved.
Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?
Silicone implants have been used for cosmetic and medical purposes for decades. Chin augmentation with a silicone implant is safe, quick, and gives patients a significant improvement. If you feel like you have a weak chin and want to improve it, you may be a good candidate.
Stellar Service from Start to Finish
Two months ago I had a lower lifestyle facial lift. I was apprehensive, but it was well worth the effort and expense. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, caring and very professional, from the first meeting to the follow up appointments.
The procedure is done under a local, not general anesthetic, and it was easy. I healed quickly and am very satisfied with the results.
His fee was very reasonable. Any further facial work I want done, I will be sure to come back here.
