Q3 : Will the scars be obvious?
A3 : You could either have an inconspicuous scar under the chin, or no visible scars at all, depending on whether an extra-oral or intra-oral surgical technique is employed.
Q4 : What will be my condition after surgery?
A4 : There will be a temporary limitation in movement of the mouth and lips. Your doctor will order dietary restrictions until your incisions heal. Discomfort may be more severe and prolonged with chin advancement than chin augmentation.
Q5 : What could go wrong?
A5 : Some risks of surgery include bleeding, adverse response to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, asymmetry, nerve injury, and need for revision surgery. When an implant is used, skin thinning could develop over the implant, or trauma to the chin could lead to implant displacement . Without these complications, the silicone implant can stay in place for your lifetime.
Q6 : How do I prepare for surgery?
A6 : To avoid complications and reduce risk factors you need to stop smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, taking hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medicines (other than those that your doctor allows you continue), at least two weeks before your schedule. People with diseases need surgical clearance from their medical specialist.
