What is a Chin Augmentation?
This cosmetic surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis. Whether you want an addition or subtraction to your chin, as the potential patient you must consider what you are seeking to accomplish when it comes to your chin. Of course, just like everything else you will have to choose between shape, size and even what materials will be used. Could you leave it in the hands of the surgeon? Of course, especially since this wouldn’t be his or her’s first time performing such a procedure. You very well could rely on their expertise to guide you in making your decision.
This procedure could very well change the shape of your face. You must be prepared in case you look different. Will you be able to adjust to the new you? Are you ready to handle comments from friends and family? When you make a major change such as a chin augmentation, you make it lightly. You have to consider all result.
What do you need after a Chin Augmentation?
A plus is that it is an outpatient procedure and you don’t have to stay in the hospital overnight. You can expect to be taped up to give it support as well as to reduce the swelling and discomfort. If you get an implant and they go through your mouth, expect to get stitches. They will more than likely dissolve in approximately 10 days after the surgery. However, if they go directly in through your chin, prepare for regular stitches. Maybe less glamorous yet you will have gotten it done.
Questions to Ask your Surgeon Afterwards
Once the surgery is complete, you should ask the cosmetic surgeon:
- Did the surgery go well?
- Did you bruise before looking at the end result?
- How many times will you have to come back for a follow-up?
- Will there be any long time side effects?
A chin augmentation can provide you options if you have been unhappy or even self-conscious about your chin for several years.
