The Chin Implant (Chin Augmentation) Procedure
If you need only an implant to round out your chin, then during your procedure a cut is made, either inside the mouth or outside under the chin. A pocket is created in front of the chin bone and under the muscles. The implant is placed inside. Dr. Koger will assure your comfort during surgery. You may be under general anesthesia (asleep and pain-free), or you may get medicine to numb the area, along with a medicine that will make you relaxed and sleepy. For the implant, Dr. Koger may use real bone or fat tissue or an implant made out of silicone, Teflon™, Dacron® or newer biological implants, all of which are usually inserted and attached to the bone with sutures or screws.
Dr. Koger may also recommend the need to move some bones to achieve more optimal results, in which case the procedure will likely be under general anesthesia, and Dr. Koger will make a cut inside your mouth along the lower gum. This gives the surgeon access to the chin bone. The jaw bone is moved and wired or screwed in place. Dr. Koger closes the incision with stitches and a bandage. Because the surgery is performed inside your mouth, you will not see any scars.
How Much Does Chin Implant (Chin Augmentation) Surgery Cost?

Getting Back to Normal Following Chin Implant (Chin Augmentation) Surgery
Your recovery should be smooth and easy though you may feel some discomfort and soreness initially. It is also possible that you may feel some numbness in your chin area for a number of weeks, but most swelling should completely dissipate within six weeks after your surgery. The day of your surgery you can resume light activity and within a week you will be able to resume normal work activities, though for the first four to six weeks following your surgery, you will be asked to wear a brace while you are sleeping to ensure a proper recovery.
