PROFILES Beverly Hills Chin Implants
On the surface, surgery of the chin seems straightforward, especially if an implant is used; however, our experience has shown us that every patient has their own unique requirements. As a result, Drs. Litner and Solieman work with you to achieve the balanced appearance you’re looking for as opposed to only offering you an “off the shelf” implant.
Recognized as Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Chin Implants specialists, Drs. Litner and Solieman are often sought out by models and actors who desire chin augmentation to give them a stronger presence on film and in photographs. Other chin implant patients occasionally come to us initially wanting to make their noses smaller when it turns out a chin implant would better balance their profiles. No matter what your reason for considering chin augmentation or chin implants, the end result should be a balanced relationship within the structures of your face. The key for us at PROFILES is that our chin implant surgeons have worked with some of the world’s top authorities in chin implant surgery and as such are able to work with the various implant types to best accomplish your goals.
Every plastic surgeon is aware of the importance of the balance between the chin and the nose. A large nose will make the chin look smaller and vice versa. The reason people choose us is because we recognize that, as with the nose, the chin presents with incredible variability. Unlike the nose, this diversity often goes unnoticed. And, because the chin generally does not carry the same emotional importance as does the nose, many surgeons will note the projection of the chin, but they rarely delve any deeper than that. We welcome you to come in and see why so many patients in the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles area have already chosen Drs. Litner and Solieman for their chin augmentation.
Chin augmentation using chin implants can enhance your appearance and accentuate your natural facial contours. If you are considering chin augmentation, you should consider facial plastic surgeons with expertise in the various types of chin implants that are available.
If you are younger, you may be seeking chin augmentation to create a stronger jawline and a more squared look in order to enhance your overall facial contours. For some of you, we may recommend a change in the size or shape of the chin to enhance your profile when we perform your rhinoplasty.
For others of you, a chin implant may be used to establish facial harmony and symmetry. For you, a relatively small chin implant may be all you need, as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure like neck liposuction or a facelift, to fully rejuvenate your look and give you the svelte neck line you have always wanted. Finally, if you have a ‘witch’s’ chin or other chin asymmetry, there are excellent options for you as well. If you are in the Los Angeles or Beverly Hills area, we look forward to meeting you and discussing the myriad options available to you.
During your consultation personal PROFILES chin implant and chin augmentation consultation, Drs. Litner and Solieman will evaluate your overall facial contours, the underlying bone structure, as well as your lip to chin ratio. Photographs will be taken so our doctors can further study your face and, utilizing state of the art computer imaging systems, will show you what a PROFILES chin implant can achieve. Our doctors will discuss your goals with you at length, as it will largely guide us in your chin implant surgery. Moreover, we welcome you to bring images that can help us ascertain what it is you are looking to achieve with your chin augmentation surgery. We can often use these pictures to guide us in our computer imaging. We will also discuss the possibilities, and pros and cons of using injectable fillers for your chin concerns. While non-surgical chin augmentation with fillers can be done, please be aware that it is a non- permanent solution because the fillers will disappear with time.
All of our outpatient procedures including chin augmentation and chin implants are performed in our state of the art, fully accredited, office-based surgical facility – the PROFILES Beverly Hills Surgery Center. Patients should make sure to arrange for a ride home after their procedure as you will be able to go home the same day as the surgery.
Here at PROFILES Beverly Hills, we utilize only board certified anesthesiologists for all our surgeries. The anesthesiologist will meet with you prior to the procedure to address any questions or concerns you may have.
We have found that many of our patients comfortably tolerate chin implant surgery under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. If you choose to be awake during surgery, you will still be insensitive to pain and you will feel relaxed. However, the extent of your chin augmentation procedure and your preference can also help to determine the type of anesthesia used.
Your chin implant surgery typically takes forty-five minutes to an hour to complete. A small incision is made inside your mouth or in the skin beneath your chin area. Based on your pre- operative discussions with Drs. Litner and Solieman, the proper sized and shaped implant is then selected and tailored as necessary to best enhance your appearance. Often, a few different sizes are tried before settling on the most appropriate implant that will best achieve your goals.
The chin is commonly taped after surgery to keep swelling to a minimum. The swelling is slight and will usually be unnoticeable within one week. Most of our chin augmentation patients describe feeling tight the night of surgery but rarely is pain an issue. You will be provided with pain medications should you need them during the first or ensuing nights, although we find they are rarely needed.
Dr. Solieman and Dr. Litner will check on you that first night after surgery, and they will see you in the office the day following your surgery. Your progress will be closely followed during the first weeks, and you will be given a list of activities that should be avoided in the weeks after surgery. In order to minimize post operative discomfort, we often utilize self-absorbing stitches that dissolve on their own.
As with all our procedures, we will schedule all of your follow-up appointments when you schedule your chin implant surgery. And, we are so committed to your long term results and happiness that we will follow your postoperative course even years after your surgery.
