A person´s chin can be enhanced and shaped by inserting special implants. These implants are usually made of silicone gel. They are inserted through an incision below the chin from the outside or through an internal incision in the lower lip.
Usually, a chin augmentation (also called genioplasty) is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia or in twilight sleep. The initial situation and the desired result determine the subsequent surgical technique. These techniques, as well as possible complications and aftercare, will be discussed in a personal consultation with the performing specialist.
Possible complications, such as a wound healing disorder or an infection, are typically no longer fully covered by health insurance when a chin augmentation is performed for aesthetic reasons. Taking out one of our safe4beauty cosmetic surgery insurances can help to reduce the associated financial risk for the patient.
