CHIN AUGMENTATION

Purpose: To improve the balance of the face and give it a better proportion.
Length of operation: 1 hour
Anaesthesia: General anaesthetic
Inpatient Stay: 1 day
Follow up: 1 week, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year
Time off work: 1 week
Recovery: 2-3 weeks
Risks: Infection, hardening of tissue around the implant and movement of the implant

This is a procedure which is typically done along with nose surgery or facelift operation. The purpose is to make the chin more prominent.  The chin defines our profile and gives balance to the face. Chin implants can be inserted through a skin incision or from inside the mouth. It is typical to feel swelling and numbness of the chin area, but this subsides in due course. Complications include infection, scar tissue formation and movement of the implant.

Specific Instructions

Before Surgery

  • Mr Sanjay Azad advices his patients to take Tablet Arnica (30 strength) once a day prior to surgery. This is a homeopathic remedy which has been found to reduce bleeding and bruising after surgery.
  • No make up should be applied on face prior to the operation.
  • Do not cut your hair prior to surgery so that the incision can be well hidden.
  • Do get a scarf and sunglasses which will be useful after surgery.

After Surgery

  • Continue taking Arnica tablet once a day for 2 weeks after surgery.
  • Pain killers after surgery are typically a combination of codeine and paracetamol.  Avoid any tablets like ibuprofen or diclofenac which can potentially thin the blood and cause more bleeding or bruising. If you have any allergies please highlight this to Mr Sanjay Azad.
  • If there is any bleeding through the bandage, please contact the team.
  • Do not consume alcohol for 2 days after surgery.
  • It is useful to apply ice compresses to the exposed area of the face during the first 2 days to reduce swelling.
  • You can wash your hair 3 days after surgery.
  • Try not to do too much after surgery and take a soft diet for the first three days. Limit activities such as bending, straining and lifting. Avoid excess neck movements and heavy exertion for the first month. Aerobics should only be done 3 months after surgery.
  • While sleeping keep your head elevated (to 45 degrees) by using an additional pillow. This should be used for the first week after surgery.
  • Do not go into direct sunlight for first 6-8 weeks after surgery. Also use sunblock daily.
  • It is common to have swelling of the face and sometimes bruising of the neck and chest. Bruising typically settles down in 2-3 weeks time. It is safe to apply makeup after the first week to mask the bruising.
  • It is useful to massage the face with moisturizing cream after surgery which helps in the settling down process.
