Cambridge University hospital consultant plastic surgeons at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital are all BAAPS / BAPRAS members and are available to perform chin implant operations. Our cosmetic nurse advisors (registered nurses) offer complimentary consultations prior to your next step consultation with the surgeon: helping you make an informed decision.
What is chin implant surgery?
If you have a receding chin or feel that it is not in proportion with the rest of your features, a chin implant can improve your jaw line and balance the shape of your face. Chin implant surgery from Spire Cosmetic Surgery is sometimes performed at the same time as other cosmetic surgery procedures such as a facelift or rhinoplasty (“nose job”) to reshape the face.
About the chin implant procedure
Receding chins are built out by inserting an implant over the chin bone. The implant is usually inserted through an incision made inside your mouth between your lower lip and gum. This technique means there will be no visible scarring. Sometimes the implant may be inserted through a cut in the natural crease of your chin.
The material used for the implant is usually silicone or another manufactured material that is tolerated well by the body. Sometimes it is necessary to use a bone graft, usually taken from the hip. If a bone graft is used there will be some scarring in the area the graft is taken from. Your consultant surgeon will discuss this with you prior to your operation.
Chin implant surgery is usually performed under general anaesthetic, which means you will be asleep during the procedure. You’ll usually be able to return home later the same day, and will need to plan time off work to rest and recover.
Your surgeon will explain the results you can expect after chin implant surgery, and will discuss the associated risks and alternatives to the procedure before going ahead.
When you have chin implant surgery at Spire, it will be performed by an experienced specialist in the safe and comfortable surroundings of a private hospital.
