Chin augmentation is not necessarily difficult to understand, but it can be difficult to make it beautiful and match the face. Some people undergo a lot of revisions but are still not satisfied, or some people only did it choosing the trendy shape. For example, sometimes pointed chin is popular and sometimes slightly dimensional chin is more popular. The more revisions made, the more skills required for the plastic surgeons.

Let’s begin with surgical augmentation.
There are two types of surgical augmentation:
· Silicone Implant
If it is hidden incision augmentation, the surgery will be done from the inner or inside the mouth. This technique is very popular right now. As for the surgery from outside, sometimes a scar is left under the chin.
· Sliding Genioplasty or Jaw Move
For this technique, apart from giving a good result for beautiful chin, there is a benefit which helps with snoring because the jaw bone is connected to the breathing and air flow. When it was moved, the ventilation path will be widened. This technique can be costly as it is a lower jaw bone surgery and should be done only be a specialist.
What Is the Post-Op Care for the Incision?
The process is not complicated. Just take the antibiotics prescribed by the doctor and keep the cleanliness by frequently mouth washing. The incision will heal quicker and not risk for infection.
The period that must be closely taken care of is during the 7 days before the stitches are removed. After that, the patient can return to daily activities.
If ones would like to wear makeup, they can do so. It is important to be careful as to not bump into the chin area.
Avoid some extreme sports that could be a problem as the implants could stick out.
*For beautiful shapes, patients should be careful not letting their chins hitting anything for the first three weeks of post operation to avoid swelling, deform and inflammation.
After Chin Augmentation, Can One Rest One’s Chin on One’s Hands?
Yes, once the area has healed. During the early periods of post-op recovery, it is important to avoid this because of the risk of inflammation.
