Chin implants from Plano surgeon bring out your best
A defined chin helps to balance a woman’s facial proportions and strengthens a man’s profile. A weak chin brings visual focus to the size and shape of the nose, prominence of the ears, wrinkles, and jowls. Dr. Patrick Obasi is adept in the use of chin implants to help Plano, Frisco, and Dallas area patients emphasize their best facial features.
What is mentoplasty?
Chin augmentation is an outpatient procedure with intravenous sedation, performed on site at Noble Cosmetic Surgery in Plano. At a preliminary consultation, you and the doctor select a firm silicone implant in a shape and size to achieve your desired results.
Dr. Obasi makes a small incision. It may be under the chin, or inside the mouth where the lower lip meets the gum. Tissue is gently stretched to create space for the implant. It is inserted, and the incision is closed with fine sutures. Scarring is invisible inside the mouth, and barely noticeable under the chin.
Recovery and results
Your wellbeing is our top priority. Post-operative steps for a complication-free recovery include:
- Surgical dressing that remains in place for up to three days.
- Thorough aftercare instructions to follow at home.
- A liquid diet, gradually progressing to soft foods, for a few days after surgery to limit chewing.
- Prescription medication to manage tenderness at the surgical site.
- Limited physical activity for two weeks.
Some patients report a tight, stretched sensation, but it typically subsides within a week. Swelling resolves in six weeks. Then full improvement becomes evident. In Dr. Obasi’s care, you can count on a natural appearance that has a positive influence on your entire face.
