If you want to enhance the look of your facial appearance and change your look up a bit, consider getting chin implants. As a surgical way to give you either a fuller looking or more chiseled looking appearance, chin implants offer patients a permanent way to transform your face into something you’ve always dreamed of. Read on to learn more.

How are they done?

By making a pocket like incision in front of the chin bone or under the muscles, an implant made typically out of silicone, is placed inside the pocket. Once the implant is placed, it is then attached with either sutures or screws.

How long does the surgery take?

Because chin implant surgery is considered to be a fairly invasive surgical procedure, you will be under anesthesia during the entire time. Once under anesthesia, the surgery itself should only take a couple of hours. Once surgery is complete, you will then be sent to recovery for another few hours during which you will be closely monitored for another couple of hours.

What is recovery like?

Once you are sent home, typically the same day of surgery, you will be required to get some R&R (rest and recovery). Full recovery from a chin implant surgical procedure takes about 2-3 months from start to finish. During your recovery, you should abstain from intense workouts or activities that require a lot of strenuous activity. However, after a few weeks and with the approval of Dr. David K Funt, you should be able to slowly ease your way back into your regular routine.

Getting chin implant surgery is a great way to enhance your overall facial appearance. If you would like to learn more about this type of surgery or if you would like to schedule an appointment, contact Dr. David K. Funt today!
