Chin Implant Surgery

Symptoms:
Chin looks small and dimply; Cheeks seem too chubby, Inability to fully close mouth at rest with exposure of upper incisors (Bugs Bunny look), Poor jawline Contour, Marked creases at the sides of the chin.

Description of Procedure:
Through a scar hidden inside the mouth, a chin implant is centralized and inserted to restore chin size and restore symmetry to the face, with a relative reduction in chin and nose size as the proportions balance out. Dr Lim's preference is to use the Flower's Mandibular Glove silicone implant which accurately recreates normal bony contours of the jaw. Other implant types are available on request.

Anaesthesia:
  • Local Anaesthesia, Intravenous sedation (recommended).

Hospital Stay:
Downtime:
  • You will be able to walk out of the clinic
  • Stabilising tape is removed at 48 hours
  • Swelling around the jaw will subside over the course of 1 week
  • Normal activities can be resumed after 1 week - many patients are back at work within 5 days!
  • Remnant bruising and swelling will resolve by 2 weeks (which is concealable)
