Chin Augmentation using Intra Oral Chin Implants – Dr. Chugh – International Speaker at IMCAS ASIA,22
Chin augmentation or implants is a procedure designed to increase the size or correct the shape of the chin. It is becoming more and more popular because patients nowadays are preferring to have a rounded, symmetrical face with a large, defined chin.
Some of the goals of Chin Augmentation include:
- Correcting a recessed or too prominent chin
- Changing an asymmetrical jawline
- Asymmetrical facial features
- Fixing an overly full nose.
Intra oral chin implants
Intra oral chin implants are a surgical procedure to achieve the appearance of a more prominent, less recessed chin. This form of chin augmentation is performed through an incision inside the mouth, and is becoming increasingly popular due to its low-risk profile and minimal downtime.
In order for an individual to be eligible for this procedure, they must have enough natural tissue at the base of their jawbone or under their chin that can support the implant.
When it comes to Intra oral Chin Implants, the main dreaded complication is higher risk of Infection.
Unfortunately, there is no such evidence in terms of higher risk of infection with intra oral approach.
The main advantage of Intra oral approach is no scarring and therefore no tell tale sign of surgery.
Benefits of Intra Oral Chin Implants:
- Enhances chin profile and contours
- Reduces the size of the chin profile
- Creates a more female shaped jawline
- Fixes any issues with the lower jaw alignment
