What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation surgery (or genioplasty) is a cosmetic procedure that improves the look of the jawline and chin for people with a recessive chin or one that is overbearing. When a chin lacks shape and size, it can create a weak profile. A weak chin can have an impact on other areas of the face and give the appearance of a disproportionately large nose or maxilla. Several aesthetic enhancements can be performed to highlight your chin, and one of the most common procedures is inserting an implant to reconstruct a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. Sherman Oaks, CA Dr. Elias offers many cosmetic improvements to consider for your chin enhancement. In addition to implants, which come in various sizes and shapes, noninvasive augmentations, such as fillers, can help add contour. For prominent chins, a reduction genioplasty might be an option. This reconstructive surgery at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts removes bone and cartilage to reshape your chin and jaw for a more balanced look.
What is the Genioplasty Procedure?
During this procedure, general anesthesia or IV sedation will be used. The incision is carefully made just under your chin or inside the mouth at the gumline. In this incision, a pocket is surgically made to keep the implant device in its proper place. The chin implant is placed through the incision and positioned on top of the bone at the border of the jawline. Regardless, both help to conceal scars. Thin sutures are used to connect and close the incisions, and your chin will be wrapped with bandages.
Chin enhancement treatment creates immediately noticeable results, which can be exciting for our patients. Even though redness, swelling, and discoloration will be present after your surgery, this only lasts a short while. For many, chin augmentation takes about 1 – 3 weeks of healing. Heavy exercise should not be performed while in this recovery window. This particular surgery has historically high success rates, and by having it under the hands of a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Elias, your outcome will be proportionate and refined.
Southern California Center for Surgical Arts Reviews
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
He did Facetite on me on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday - Dr. Elias is wonderful! He did Facetite on me on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday. He's a true artist & perfectionist! He's really good at injectables as well. I get Botox & fillers all the time with him. The staff is very friendly!
Excellent, clear communication, professional. Great staff with a fun vibe. Clean office. Lots of follow ups and no issues with my dental implant! Everyone was A+.
