Many people living in Los Angeles and beyond seek chin augmentation to restructure a receded chin or a naturally small chin that might look incongruent with other facial features. Plastic surgeons utilize a synthetic chin implant or other biologically sound materials to add dimension to the chin. This surgery, as performed by Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, or Dr. J as he is known to his staff and patients, will strengthen a “weak” chin and add definition to the patient’s profile. The chin augmentation can be performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty, or one of the other plastic surgeries in which Dr. J specializes.
The chin surgery itself can be performed in less than an hour. Prior to the operation, Dr. J with select the proper-sized implant to create the desired changes and discuss the particulars of the procedure with the patient. Local anesthesia is typical used during chin augmentation, although general anesthesia might be necessary in particular cases. While the timeframe of chin implant recovery differs for patients, most people are able to proceed with various household activities later in the day. While side-effects are minimal, swelling and some pooling of the blood is a common occurrence following the surgery but can be treated with medications and/or compresses. Chin implant cost will be discussed and coordinated by Dr. J’s staff and the patient to ease the financial component of the process.
Dr. J’s patients attest to the satisfying results of their chin augmentations. If you would like to set up a consultation, please call us today at 310-228-3151 or visit our contact page.
