The Chin Implant Procedure:
Dr. Lohner’s Chin Implant procedure will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to perform, depending on the specific correction needed. Chin Implants are performed as outpatient procedures, under local anesthesia. To start the procedure, Dr. Lohner will make a small incision inside of the lower lip, or along the crease below the chin. Through this opening, Dr. Lohner will insert the Chin Implant; anchoring the piece to the bone. When the corrections are complete, sutures are placed for appropriate healing. The Chin Implant procedure provides excellent results when used on its own. The face will be balanced, and the chin will look strong. Combining the Chin Implant with other cosmetic procedures however, such as a Rhinoplasty, Facelift or Necklift, allows patients to attain maximum aesthetic benefit.
