When a chin is receded or “weak” an implant can be introduced through the mouth improving the projection of the chin.
Often this is combined with a rhinoplasty and a very nice esthetic balance of the profile is obtained.
Prosthesis come in various sizes and shapes and once done people will not know what operation you underwent, they just notice that you look much better.
This operation is usually done under local anesthesia with sedation. The recovery is about one week.
The final result of any treatment or esthetic procedure may vary from patient to patient.
