FAQ's about combined rhinoplasty and chin augmentation surgery

Should I get a chin implant at the same time as a nose job?

If your chin is small, rhinoplasty and chin augmentation in combination can give your face a balanced appearance that would be impossible to achieve with rhinoplasty alone.

Why should I get a chin implant at the same time as a nose job?

It is sensible to have rhinoplasty and genioplasty (chin augmentation surgery) performed by a specialist facial plastic surgeon at the same time because it avoids the need for two separate surgical procedures and two periods of recovery.

How long do the results of chin augmentation surgery last?

The results of chin augmentation surgery using silicone implants are permanent and will last a lifetime. The chin implant cannot move or change position once it has been inserted.

Will I be in any pain after chin augmentation surgery?

There is very little pain involved in a chin augmentation. You might experience a little swelling and there is usually a small amount of discomfort that can be relieved by over-the-counter painkillers. The area might also be a little numb for the first few weeks.

Do chin implants look natural?

Modern silicone implants are designed to look and feel as natural as possible. They are placed very deep, right on top of the chin bone, so it will not even be noticeable that you have been operated on.

Do chin implants feel strange?

A chin augmentation with a good quality silicone implant performed by a qualified facial plastic surgeon may initially feel a bit strange but this sensation will disappear completely after a few weeks, and it will feel totally natural.

Will I have trouble smiling after a chin implant? Will my smile be different?

The implant is placed deep on the chin bone and the muscles that move the lips are not cut at all, but you may feel some difficulty in smiling at first. This can last a few days or weeks and is caused by the swelling from the surgery. Once the swelling has gone down, your smile will feel completely natural and will be unchanged.
