Chin / Jaw Augmentation
Chin Augmentation for men in NYC
Chin augmenation, also known as mentoplasty, reshapes the chin with an enhancement with a chin implant or reduction surgery performed on the chin bone. Dr. Steinbrech specializes in chin augmentation for men in NYC. The individual facial features of the chin and jawline can greatly impact the balance/harmony of all facial features. If the nose is prominent or large, it will appear even more so when combined with a weak chin or un-pronounced jawline. Altering the appearance of the chin and jawline can greatly improve the harmony of the face as well as counter the effects of age.
Male candidates in NYC for chin augmentation are in generally good health and have realistic expectations for improving a weak chin or subtle jawline . Chin implants are made from a special medical-grade material that looks and feels like natural bone, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that they can be tailored to the individual patient.
Surgical times average thirty minutes and local anesthesia is commonly used.
For chin augmentation surgery, a small incision is made just beneath the chin. The implant is inserted and the incision is closed.
For jawline augmentation an incision is made inside the mouth near the area of the third molars and an implant is inserted. Both a jawline and chin augmentation can be performed within the same surgery for male patients in NYC.
Chin Augmentation Recovery
Swelling post jawline/chin augmentation surgery is common; swelling typically peaks at 24-48 hours after surgery. Heightened swelling does subside, however prolonged swelling may occur and final surgery results will be seen within several months. Most male patients in NYC return to work within 5 days after chin augmentation surgery, however strenuous exercise should be avoided for ten days.
Restrictions to activities and diet will occur during the recovery period. Dr. Steinbrech instructs all patients in the areas of dental and oral hygiene post-surgery.
