Toledo chin implant plastic surgery for a more pronounced chin and better facial balance.

Chin enhancement surgery, also called genioplasty, involves the use of a silicone chin implant to create a more pronounced chin profile. Chin enlargement can create a more balanced facial profile and correct a weak chin. For men and women alike in Toledo, chin implants can offer the improved appearance they desire.

You may be a good candidate for a chin implant if you have any of the following conditions:

  • A small or receding chin;
  • A chin that is disproportionate to the nose or the rest of the face.

Length of Chin Enhancement Plastic Surgery

Our Toledo chin implant surgery takes 1 to 2 hours.

Anesthesia Requirements for Chin Cosmetic Surgery

Local with sedation or general anesthesia may be used during chin augmentation surgery.

Side Effects of Chin Enlargement Plastic Surgery

Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, and tenderness of the skin, as well as a tight feeling or dry skin are possible with facial plastic surgery.

Risks of Chin Implant Plastic Surgery

Injury to nerves that control facial muscles or feeling (usually temporary but may be permanent) are possible. Infection, bleeding, poor healing, or excessive scarring are possible risks of chin cosmetic surgery.

  • Swelling reaches its peak and then begins to subside.
  • Bandages will be removed and you may shower.
