Chin Implant
Chin implant surgery is recommended to enlarge a chin that appears small in proportion to the face and reduce the appearance of a double chin. Results of radiological and visual analyses are used before chin implant surgery to determine the necessity of the procedure. The most popular implants for surgery are silicone or medpor implants. These implants are entirely compatible with the human body and do not cause allergic reactions, significantly reducing the risk of rejection by the body.
How Is Chin Implant Surgery Performed?
Chin implant surgery involves the careful evaluation of the patient's needs by a specialist who then places the implant through an oral incision. Chin implant aesthetics can be integrated with rhinoplasty under the profileplasty framework. Chin implant surgery is performed under general or local anesthesia and takes approximately 1 hour.
What Are the Necessary Criteria for a Chin Implant?
Patients requesting a chin implant should have completed chin bone development. Therefore, one must be at least 18 years old for the surgery. Additionally, the patient should not have any orthodontic issues. If an orthodontic treatment plan is in place, the chin implant surgery can be performed after this treatment.
How Is the Recovery Process After Chin Implant Surgery?
The recovery time after chin implant surgery varies depending on the technique used for the surgery. Patients typically stay in the hospital for one day after chin implant surgery. If another combined operation is performed along with the chin surgery, this time frame can be extended depending on the patient's general condition. Numbness around the lower lip and chin will gradually disappear.

Self-absorbable stitches in the mouth will dissolve within 7-10 days. Mild swelling and bruising may occur in the chin area, but these effects will gradually disappear. To reduce the risk of infection after implant surgery, antibiotic and painkiller treatment will begin. After the surgery, it is recommended for the patient to avoid heavy movements, smoking, and alcohol consumption.
Does Chin Implant Surgery Leave Scars?
In chin implant surgery, the incision is made on the inside of the mouth, so there is no visible scar on the outside. In patients with a condition that prevents the incision from being made inside the mouth, the incision is made externally or under the chin. This incision can leave a barely noticeable scar that is not easily seen from the front.
What Precautions Should Be Taken Before Chin Implant Surgery?
Patients who agree to have chin implant surgery are advised to quit smoking at least three weeks before the procedure, as it increases the risk of postoperative infection and slows down the healing process. If any regularly used medications are present, it is essential to inform the specialist before intervention.
