Chin Augmentation With Implants At Audubon Facial Plastic Surgery

Bringing the size and shape of the chin into harmony and balance with the rest of the face with chin augmentation can have stunning results and improve the overall facial aesthetic. Dr. Claire Melancon at Audubon Plastic Surgery, New Orleans, LA, performs Chin Implant procedures often in the office under local anesthesia, giving beautiful results to patients with minimal discomfort and downtime.

What Are Chin Implants?

A Chin Implant is considered a "permanent" surgical option used to address a recessed or "weak" chin. The implants are made of firm but flexible medical-grade silicone, which comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and are precisely placed to resemble the natural bone structure. Our New Orleans Chin Implant procedure can add strength and definition to the chin and jawline for an ideally contoured appearance.

Chin Implants Vs Dermal Fillers

Know Your Options

Both Chin Implants and dermal fillers can be used to enhance the appearance of the chin, but they have distinct differences. Dermal fillers are typically made with hyaluronic acid and are injected into the chin area to sculpt and add volume. This is a minimally invasive, non-surgical method and requires no downtime, but it is not permanent, and most HA fillers will last only around six months to a year. Chin implants require a surgical procedure that is permanent unless the implant is surgically removed.

Benefits Of Chin Augmentation with Implants

The chin is an area where even subtle changes can make a huge difference in overall facial harmony and balance. With Chin Implants New Orleans patients can enjoy:

  • Stronger-looking chin and jawline area
  • Better facial balance between the nose and chin
  • Natural-looking results that are lifelong

Is This Procedure For You?

Chin Implants Candidates

Chin augmentation is not just about creating a stronger, more projected chin and sculpted jawline. It can also provide balance to the overall facial structure. Candidates for chin implants may want to create more facial harmony between their chin, nose, or cheekbones. Chin implants can improve proportions, strengthen a weak chin, address asymmetry, correct a double chin that is created by low chin projection, and other enhancements. Since this is a surgical procedure, patients should be in overall good health, close to their goal weight, and be non-smokers.

Consultation And Preparation

During a consultation with Dr. Melancon, she will spend time learning about your aesthetic goals and health history and perform an examination. If you determine together that chin implants are the optimal choice for you, a custom treatment plan will be created, including detailed information on how to prepare for surgery, including possible lab work or adjustment of any medications.

Surgical Excellence Meets Artistic Design

Chin Implant Procedure

After discussing with you and determining your goals, Dr. Melancon will select the optimal size and shape implant with your ideal proportions. Typically, an incision is made within the mouth or just under the chin, depending on whether the procedure is combined with neck liposuction and the implant is placed along the bone. This procedure may be performed under local anesthesia in the office or under anesthesia, depending on the patient, and usually takes about one to two hours.

Looking Toward Great Results

Results, Recovery, And Aftercare

Most patients will have some tenderness or soreness in the chin, and some may experience mild, temporary numbness or a stretching sensation for a while, along with very slight motion changes while the muscle of the chin heals. These symptoms will eventually subside on their own. Optimal results after Chin Implant surgery will appear around one to three months and are permanent.
