About chin implant surgery in Las Vegas
In the hands of an experienced cosmetic surgeon, chin enhancement surgery is typically straightforward. A soft, tapered silicone chin implant is placed around the jaw bone through a single incision that is hidden in the chin crease. Recovery is quick and within days, you will be ready to face the world with your new, more refined chin—and with greater confidence in your appearance.
This outpatient procedure takes less than an hour. Although there is the option of placing the incision inside the mouth, Dr. Pancholi prefers the incision outside the mouth to avoid the potential for infection from saliva and also to minimize trauma and damage to the delicate lower lip and chin muscles. Once the implant is placed, it is secured to the surrounding bone and tissues to minimize potential for movement.
Dr. Pancholi performs chin augmentation surgery in a fully accredited surgery suite for your safety, comfort and privacy. Unless you are having another procedure at the same time, you should be able to resume most normal activities within a week of your procedure, and post-operative bruising and swelling will be mostly gone after a couple of weeks.
Will anyone be able to tell I have a chin implant?
Chin implants are available in a range of sizes and shapes to achieve a result that integrates seamlessly with your existing facial anatomy, and an experienced, qualified cosmetic surgeon will ensure that the only thing others notice about you after your procedure is how great you look—not what you had done.
A diplomate of both the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Osteopathic Board of Otolaryngology-Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Pancholi has an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy in addition to an expert eye for aesthetic harmony. He will help you choose the right chin implant to refine your facial features while ensuring that you still look like you, with some positive changes.
Enhancing the chin with fillers
For those interested in “trying out” a more defined or projected chin, yet not quite ready or interested in surgery, a temporary in-office option may be the answer. Facial fillers can be used to increase the projection of the chin as well as define the jawline. Multiple types of fillers can be used, ranging from those that can be dissolved and last up to 2 years, and others that can’t be dissolved and last up to 5 years.
Coming in for a facial evaluation with Dr. Pancholi will help you learn what results you might expect with fillers and decide if this is the right option for you to get a stronger, more attractive jawline.
Chin augmentation enhances other facial procedures
If you are considering nose reshaping, neck contouring, or even a facelift, consider the benefits of adding a chin implant during the same surgery: enhancing the chin can put the finishing touches on these more involved procedures without adding to your recovery time, and often without any additional incisions. Dr. Pancholi will be happy to discuss your options and help you visualize what’s possible during your consultation.
