Before I chose Dr. Luis A. Picard-Ami, Jr. in Panama City, Panama, I researched multiple aesthetic surgeons and simply could not find a surgeon as accomplished. My husband and I have had an outstanding experience and we highly recommend him; his skillfulness and expertise are irrefutable. For months, I communicated with him by email and he used his valuable time to thoroughly, thoughtfully and punctually answer every question. We followed up with simple pictures taken on our phones and he offered his recommendations, our options, detailed cost estimates, basic procedural guidance and aftercare information. He never sold us on additional procedures or products. Additionally, what endeared me to Dr. Picard-Ami was that he helped me to focus on how important realistic result expectations are. He has incredible attention to detail. My husband and I are now in our fifth week of healing and the results so far are completely natural and genuine even though our procedures were quite different. I am thrilled! Also, please know that the costs ended up exactly as quoted and were 30% lower than our U. S. quotes. Dr. Picard-Ami’s manner is warm, compassionate and gentle. His nurse and administrative assistant are also competent, caring and welcoming; they coordinate everything concerning surgical care and follow-up. I want to also share that he is the only surgeon we spoke with who recommended physical therapy following the surgery and we believe the ultrasound sessions facilitated our healing. His office is conveniently located in the Punta Pacifica Hospital as is the aftercare. Next week, we are to follow up with him by email with photos of our progress, and we are seeing steady improvement each day. We’ve had no complications to speak of and no regrets to date. I know we chose the best surgeon with the most caring staff and we simply loved visiting Panama. Please know that you can trust Dr. Picard-Ami; he exceeded our expectations and I know he will surpass yours too. RDS

"As a couple, my husband and I decided to have facial enhancement surgery. Several years ago, I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Picard-Ami, trusting him with this made sense. Our challenges leaving the USA for this major event made us anxious because we speak limited Spanish and have hearing impairment issues. Dr. Picard-Ami and his associates clearly understood these issues and took great care to walk us through each part of the process. We followed all recommended after care treatments and instructions and are currently moving though the healing process nicely and are thrilled with the results. Dr. Picard-Ami is truly an accomplished surgeon and outstanding man. We, absolutely, selected the right surgeon for this life chaining event"

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.
