Am I a suitable candidate for Chin Implants?
Good candidates for chin implant surgery include men and women who are looking to add prominence to the chin or jaw area.
In general, the best candidates should be:
- 18 years of age or older.
- Without any pre-existing medical conditions.
- Psychologically stable.
- Realistic in their expectations.
The above is only a partial list of the criteria that your surgeon will consider in determining whether or not this procedure is appropriate for you.
Am I of a suitable age for chin implants?
Chin augmentation may be performed once the facial bones are fully developed, which is after the age of 15. Most patients are in their forties. However, the older the patient is at the time of this cosmetic surgery, the less likely he/she will be pleased with his new facial structure, because over the years we become accustomed to our basic facial features.
What is my first step?
Your initial consultation with one of our vastly experienced chin implant surgeons should clearly set out your expectations and whether the surgery can give you the results you desire.
Your reasons for wanting chin implants and your suitability for this type of procedure will be carefully discussed. Also, your medical history will be taken to ensure that there are no reasons why you shouldn’t have this operation.
What can I do to help achieve the best results?
Before choosing to have chin implants, make sure that you obtain as much information as is necessary to enable you to make a fully informed choice.
Your surgeon will give you specific instructions regarding preparing for surgery, including guidelines for
- Eating and drinking.
- Taking or avoiding vitamins, iron tablets and certain medications.
How else can I prepare for this procedure?
Before your surgery, take the opportunity to ask all the questions you have about the procedure.
- Tell your surgeon about any allergies you have (to foods, drugs, environmental elements).
- Arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery.
