The chin brings the entire face into proportion. Having a recessed chin can give the appearance of an unbalanced face, an overly projected nose, or even a lack of definition in the neck area. Chin augmentation from El Paso cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anh Lee is a simple, quick procedure to add volume to a small chin, caused by aging or in patients with a genetically small chin.
Beauty may only be skin deep. But, for centuries, well-defined facial features have been considered traits of physical beauty. Prominent cheek bones and a strong chin provide balance and definition. Possessing these features can even enhance your self-confidence. For those lacking these natural marks of distinction, make-up was their only alternative.
The chin is also taped to minimize swelling and discomfort. If an intra-oral incision is used, the sutures will dissolve on their own. Your incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures or stitches that will be removed within 1-2 weeks following your surgery. While the initial outcome of plastic surgery with facial implants is noticeable almost immediately, it may be obscured by visible swelling, which can take several months to fully dissipate.
