CHIN IMPLANTS WITH DR RICARDO VEGA

OVERVIEW

A chin implant is designed to bring a harmonious balance to facial features, usually by augmenting a weak chin. By placing a biocompatible implant in the lower jaw, patients can create a stronger chin, and even lengthen the entire face. While many patients use dermal fillers to increase chin size, their results last for only a few months and require frequent touch-ups. In comparison, a chin implant offers permanent results that can be customized to achieve the desired look.

A chin implant is commonly used in conjunction with rhinoplasty. Because the appearance of the chin may be affected by what will be the new size and shape of the nose, a chin implant may be used to help achieve a more pleasing facial proportion. It may also be combined with lip augmentation for maximum results.

BEST CANDIDATE FOR CHIN IMPLANT

The chin implant procedure is ideal for a patient with a weak chin and/or prominent nose. The appearance of the nose and chin are interrelated, and a chin implant can be instrumental in improving a patient’s profile. Candidates for the procedure should be in good overall health, and have no preexisting medical conditions that can affect the procedure’s success.

Chin implant surgery can improve the balance of the face, increasing self-confidence as a result. It is important, however, for a patient to have realistic expectations about what a chin implant can do.

THE PROCEDURE

The chin implant procedure takes less than an hour to perform, and it is only done under local anesthesia. During the procedure, an incision is made inside the mouth; this eliminates visible scarring. A pocket is created for the implant, which is then positioned in front of the jawbone. Once in place, the implant is secured with sutures, and the procedure is completed. Patients can return home the same day.

For some patients, an incision made in the mouth may not be possible. In these cases, the incision is made in the skin underneath the chin so that scars are not apparent.

RECOVERY AND RESULTS

After the chin implant procedure, patients may experience tightness and swelling in the chin. Any discomfort can be relieved with pain medication, although most patients report that any pain subsides after just a few days. A compression garment may be taped to the chin in order to reduce swelling during the healing process. A patient will be restricted to a soft diet for several days until the gums have healed from the incision. For incisions made under the chin, sutures are removed after four to seven days.

When the incision is made inside the mouth, no scars will be visible, and there will be no obvious indication that plastic surgery has been performed.

"Exceptional care"
The care was exceptional, better than in the States. Dr Vega is absolutely devoted to his patients and clearly to his practice. He is the most dedicated doctor Ive ever seen, including my own plastic surgeon brother in N.Y. The recovery time took longer than I expected, but I am 61 yrs old and had alot done-facelift, eyes, and nose. I am happy with the results with one slight minor detail- There is still a horizontal line between my eyes, that I wanted filled so it wouldnt appear. This is why not 5 stars. Everything else looks great. I look much younger. This took at least 20 years off my age (with exception of horizontal line betw eyes)I would highly recommend Dr Vega, at about one third less than the surgeons in Michigan.
