Chin Augmentation in Thailand

Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure to reshape and enhance the contour of the chin. It can be performed on both men and women who think that their chin is not shaped proportionally. The chin is an important feature of your appearance and it can make your profile uneven if it’s understated. The procedure can also make the shape of your chin broader, rounder, more angular, more prominent, or reduce the appearance of a double chin. There are two types of chin augmentation procedure. The first one is chin implants, which is aimed for chin enlargements to reshape or push forward the chin’s appearance. The second one is sliding Genioplasty or Osseous Genioplasty (chin reduction), which is perfect for those who wish to have a less prominent jaw appearance.   

You can either have general anesthesia or local anesthesia and your surgeon will recommend the best choice for you. The surgery starts by making an incision inside your mouth or under the chin. Then, a pocket is created under your chin bone and under your muscles to place the implant. The implant may be made from real bone, fat tissue, or silicone. Your implant will be attached to your bones with stitches or screws. Finally, the surgical cut will be closed by sutures.

The procedure takes between one to three hours and you will need to stay in the hospital for a day. However, you may need to stay in the Thailand longer because your surgeon will schedule follow-up checkups and for the stitches to be removed. You will experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort for several weeks. The average recovery period until you can see results is within one to three months. The success rate for this procedure is high, with many people very satisfied. It is important to be aware of the possible risks such as infections and nerve damage.
