How is a chin augmentation done?
Prior to your treatment, photos are taken for in your medical file. When performing a chin augmentation, an incision is made under the chin. The implant is inserted via this incision and is closed up with sutures. We use a unique technique for this, which gives minimal scaring. All that remains is a tiny scar that is hardly visible.
Chin implants can also be inserted via the inside of the mouth. An incision is made between the lower teeth and the bottom lip, at jaw level. This method leaves no scars but has one disadvantage; it can increase the risk of infection.
After the sutures have been stitched, your chin is covered with a plaster bandage.
The operation takes two to three hours to perform.
