This is best for men and women who lack the projection or definition they desire for this area. When fat padding is lost due to age, sometimes a fat transplant should be considered to restore the lost fill.

Surgery time: About an hour

Preparation: You need to collect pictures to express your desired result and aesthetic taste. This is a good way to discuss implant size. Some people initially want an implant that is too big that would look unnatural over time. For 10 days before surgery, you need to avoid anticoagulants such as alcohol, aspirin, antihistamines, herbal oils, and over the counter feel good preparations

Procedure: Drawings are made and photos taken. The chin must balance the profile and possibly can appear to lengthen (make more oval) the appearance of the face in a frontal view. The implant must fit and not seem to be an implant when in place. The implant is placed through an incision in the mouth to avoid any visible scar from the surgery. Sometimes this surgery is performed in conjunction with other procedures.

Care: You need to rest for a day or two. You need to sleep on your back with your head elevated on three or more pillows and not roll over onto your implant for 3-4 weeks. Liquids are mandatory for the first 7-8 days. I prefer low carb protein powder over sugar sweetened products.

Results: Should last a lifetime
