Maybe you’re unhappy with the profile of your face. Or perhaps you have a slope from the chin to the neck that gives you the appearance of a weak chin. Whatever the reason, Dr. Thomas Romo III finds that many men and women who are interested in addressing the chin area are considered appropriate candidates for a chin lift.
A chin lift often incorporates a chin implant which is placed over the current chin bone to give patients a more defined appearance. This allows patients to look and feel their best, especially if they have felt self-conscious about the way their chin, jaw, and neck appear. Dr. Thomas Romo III can evaluate patients to determine if they are appropriate candidates for this or other plastic surgery solutions available in his practice.
Who is a candidate for a chin lift?
During the initial consultation appointment with the team at Romo Plastic Surgery, patients will be evaluated by our plastic surgeon. This includes checking the skeletal structure of the face, the skin, and the soft tissues surrounding the chin area. He will discuss with patients the concerns they have and determine if a chin lift would be the best possible solution for their needs.
The procedure itself is done with local or general anesthetics. A chin implant that is selected by the patient is placed underneath the chin via a small incision to reduce the appearance of scarring to ensure that it feels completely natural. The entire procedure from start to finish often takes less than an hour, and patients may experience minimal downtime and healing before returning to their normal activities.
