Dr. Alejandro Enrique was very helpful during our Consultation. His knowledge and explanation of Process helped us to decide to set a date for a Facelift Procedure.

Dr. Alejandro and his staff are absolutely wonderful! I felt cared about throughout the entire process. The communication is fabulous. They answered all of my questions and took amazing care of me. The morning of my procedure the doctors and support staff were upbeat, friendly, and very caring. After my procedure, they had me rest/sleep for 4 - 5 hours in a recovery room that was dimly lit, had relaxing music playing with nature scenes on the tv. I believe they even had aromatherapy and a salt rock lamp. I had a nurse in the room with me the entire time who was so compassionate to everything I was going through. A doctor called my husband halfway through the surgery to let him know that everything was going well. Then Dr. Alejandro called him once the surgery was over to let him know they were done and I was recovering. In the days since my procedure, they've checked in on me several times. I am so glad that I chose elaen and Dr. Alejandro & I'm recommending my friends come to have the same procedure with him.

What is Chin Implants (Genioplasty)?

Genioplasty (Chin augmentation) or chin implant surgery is a cosmetic surgery that offers an excellent solution for anyone who has a weak or saggy chin, an under bite, or a larger nose to chin proportion. The chin implant procedure is designed to improve the profile of the face. Rhinoplasty is often accompanied with this procedure to help balance facial features.

 

A Good Candidate for Chin Implants (Genioplasty)

A good candidate for chin implant surgery defines anyone who is unhappy with the natural recession of the chin as they age, and anyone with deficiencies or asymmetries caused by trauma or congenital defects. The minimum age requirement is 18 years of age for this surgery.

 

Chin Implants (Genioplasty) Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your surgeon, who will discuss with you the method he will use to help you achieve your desired end result. There are two methods of anesthesia that may be used; local and general. Implants also come in a variety of shapes and sizes. An extensive consultation with your surgeon will aid you in selecting an implant to suit your unique bone structure and desired appearance.

 

During the surgery, a small incision is made either inside your lower lip or under the skin just beneath your chin. The surgeon creates a pocket over the front of your jawbone where the implant will be placed. If the incision was made inside your mouth, dissolving stitches that will dissolve in approximately 10 days will most likely be employed.

 

If the incision was made beneath your chin, regular stitches will be used and you will return for a follow-up visit to have the stitches removed after 5-7 days. Genioplasty is an outpatient procedure, which means that the patient can return home the same day.

 

Average Duration of Chin Implant Surgery: 1-2 hours.
