Chin Implant in Chicago and Arlington Heights, IL
Did you know that chin implants are one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures among celebrities? The chin shapes the face, provides structure to the facial silhouette and frames the smile. Chin implants can help people achieve a more attractive smile through just one procedure. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John A. Kotis offers this procedure to residents of Chicago, Arlington Heights and surrounding Illinois communities.
What are Chin Implants?
Like all implant plastic surgery procedures, chin implants involve implanting a small structure underneath the skin in the desired area. Chin implants involve making a small incision and placing an implant, shaped to your desire, over the existing chin structure to add more volume or contour to the area.
The Facial Plastic Surgery Procedure
When patients suffer from a weak underlying facial structure, implants can restore shape and contour. Facial implants can emphasize certain facial features, create pleasing proportions or lift areas of the face.
During a facial implant procedure, Dr. Kotis places the implants beneath the facial skin. These implants, usually made of silicone, replicates the texture of natural skin. The implants maintain their shape without compromising the appearance of the skin.
- Chin Implants – enhance the chin area. Patients with a “weak” chin can opt for a stronger profile. To perform a chin implant procedure, Dr. Kotis makes an incision either in the interior of the mouth or below the jawline. The silicone implant is placed through these incisions and creates the desired appearance. Many people who are considering chin implants are unhappy overall with the shape of the jawline and may choose to undergo a lower jaw implant to further reshape the face.
- Lower Jaw Implants – Like chin implants, jaw implants may add more definition to the face. During a lower jaw implant procedure, Dr. Kotis places the silicone implant along the side of the jaw. Incisions and placement are determined according to each patient’s desires.
Recovery from Facial Plastic Surgery
As a board-certified facial cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Kotis can place implants to create the chin his patient’s desire. After a procedure, Dr. Kotis will discuss care instructions. Patients will have bandages holding their implants in place. They are advised to keep these bandages and incision sites clean. Recovery time will depend on each individual procedure. Dr. Kotis will guide patients through their recovery and will schedule a follow-up appointment to make sure they are healing properly.
