Can chin augmentation be combined with other procedures?
Yes. In fact, Dr. Savalia frequently performs chin augmentation with other facial rejuvenation procedures. Depending on your aesthetic concerns, Dr. Savalia may recommend combining chin augmentation with a facelift, rhinoplasty, injectable fillers, eyelid surgery or other facial rejuvenation treatment.
Am I going to have scars?
Like all surgical procedures, chin augmentation involves incisions. But thanks to the latest advances in surgical techniques, scarring is minimal. When the incision is placed on the underside of the chin, the incision scar is hidden within the natural facial creases. If the incision is within the mouth, scarring is invisible.
What are the risks of chin augmentation?
Possible risks and complications from chin augmentation include excessive bleeding, infection, numbness, and nerve damage. The best way to decrease your risk of complications is to choose a board-certified and skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. Savalia to perform the procedure safely.
Are the results permanent?
Chin implants are made of silicone material that is designed to last a lifetime, and therefore the results are long-lasting.
