Both balance and symmetry are essential to a pleasing facial aesthetic. If you feel as if the lower part of your face is lacking this, consider a chin implant in Michigan. This straightforward cosmetic procedure can give you a strong chin, improve your side profile, and boost your self-esteem.

How Do Chin Implants Work?

When you decide to get a chin implant in Michigan, the first step is to come in for a consultation. These implants, which are typically made of silicone, are available in many different shapes and sizes. We will work with you to create a treatment plan to help you reach your goals.

When it becomes time for your surgery, the implant will be placed around the chin bone. The surgery is done on an outpatient basis but you will need someone to drive you home. If you choose to have additional procedures done at the same time, such as a cheek augmentation or rhinoplasty, this will add to the length of the procedure.

People have chin implants placed because they want to bring balance to their face, which they feel will make them more attractive. This surgery can leave you with better facial proportions as well as more definition to your neck and jaw. It is ideal for anyone who feels they have a weak chin.

What Are the Benefits of Getting a Chin Implant?

There are many reasons to consider this surgery if you are unhappy with the shape or size or your chin. Some of the highlights include:

  • Scars are nearly undetectable once you are done healing
  • You get dramatic and permanent results after one procedure
  • There are many different options for the size, shape, and projection of your chin
  • Implants look and feel very natural
  • It is a very safe cosmetic procedure

Who Should Consider a Chin Implant?

In order to be a good candidate for this procedure, you should be in good general health and a non-smoker. Smoking can increase your risk of complications after any surgery. It is also important that you are done growing. Be aware that the results of this procedure are permanent but can be altered by dramatic weight fluctuations.
