Chin Implants – Are They Beneficial?

rhinoplastyA good chin is important for the balance of your face. As we age, the tissue and skin that form the chin lose their firmness and elasticity and the chin effectively recedes. This can negatively impact the appearance of your face.

 

Chin implants can help restore the chin to its original shape and position and return a better symmetry to the face. This cosmetic surgery procedure is highly effective and has helped many men and women enhance the appearance of their chin.

 

We offer a number of types of chin implants for you to choose from and use highly advanced techniques. The implant is placed through your lower lip or under your chin. It is an outpatient procedure. Chin implant surgery takes about an hour.

 

Recovery from chin implant surgery is quick. You should be able to return to work in a week or less. You will have some bruising and swelling for up to two days, but that’s about the worst of your recovery.

 

If you want to improve and enhance the position of your chin then call us and let’s discuss a chin implant.

Our office is now open!

Your health (and ours) is our highest priority so we are making a few changes to our reopening so that you can feel safe and confident coming in to see us. We are of course following all federal and local guidelines such as wearing masks and conducting phone screenings prior to your appointment but we are also implementing the following:

      Increasing the frequency of cleaning and sterilization to not only include exam rooms but also the waiting room, restroom, all doors, counters, etc.

      Offering multiple hand sanitizer locations throughout the office

      Reducing the number of appointments per day as well as our office hours, to limit the number of people in the office, including staff members

      Minimizing patient overlap to allow for proper social distancing

      Testing all surgery patients for COVID-19 at their pre-operative appointments

      Asking patients to leave family members or friends at home, unless they are coming with their primary caregiver. Please leave children at home as well

 

How can you help?

      Come alone to your appointment, unless you need your primary caregiver with you

      Please wear a mask or face covering to your visit and keep it on unless you are asked by Dr. Kearney or an RN to remove it

      Postpone your visit if you have traveled by air or experienced symptoms in the last 14 days

      Use a pen from the holder marked “clean” and put it in the one marked “used” when you’re done

      Use the hand sanitizers in our office

      In the rare case there is someone at the front desk when you come in please take a seat until we call you and maintain proper distance throughout your visit

      Take advantage of our virtual consultations or follow up appointments if it makes you feel more comfortable

Please bear with us as we work to return to our new “normal” and feel free to call or email with any questions. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Sincerely,

Dr. Kearney and staff
