Cosmetic Surgery Chennai
Most chin augmentation procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. The chin implant procedure can be performed while the patient is under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. During the surgery, your plastic surgeon makes an incision one of two places. The incision may be made inside your mouth, along the lower lip, or it may be made in the skin just beneath your chin. Your surgeon then creates a pocket over the front of your jawbone. A chin implant, specially selected to be the correct size and shape to give you your desired results, will be inserted into the pocket.
After surgery, the chin is typically taped after to provide support and to minimize swelling and discomfort. If the implant was inserted through your mouth, dissolving stitches will probably be used. They will dissolve in about 10 days. If the incision was made in your chin, regular stitches will be used. Those will be removed during a follow-up visit to your plastic surgeon's office, about a week after your chin surgery.
After surgery, you will be taken to a recovery room and monitored until you are discharged to go home.
