Chin Augmentation In Thailand

Chin augmentation, also known as Mentoplasty, is a surgical technique that employs a silicon implant to enhance the contour of a small, weak, or retreating chin.
An incision is made inside the lower lip or below the chin. An implant with the proper size and form is put inside the chin. Sutures (stitches) are used to close incisions inside the mouth, which disintegrate over time. If the incision is located behind the chin, detachable sutures are employed. Following surgery, the chin is often bandaged to reduce swelling.
Chin augmentation surgery typically lasts 30 minutes to an hour.
Post-operative Care:
You’ll be wearing a facial garment or bandage for at least five days. Pain medicines can help alleviate soreness and discomfort. You require a delicate diet for a few days. Expect swelling and bruising, but they will go away in 1 to 2 weeks. You may notice numbness in the operated area, which will subside after one to three months.
After a few days of relaxation, you can return to work. Avoid vigorous activities like sports and exercise that may cause facial injuries.
After a few days of recovery, most people may return to their regular routine. For three to four weeks, avoid any activities that may produce an impact on your face.

Avoid contact sports, ball games, and activities that require wearing a helmet or chin strap.

Potential risks and complications:

Preparation Before Surgery
During consultation, a medical history (including allergies, major medical conditions, and prescriptions) will be assessed, followed by a physical examination and laboratory tests.
 Blood and urine samples will be taken for standard preoperative laboratory tests. X-rays may be used to assess bone structure.
 Avoid smoking for 3-4 weeks before surgery since it can disrupt circulation and slow healing.
 You may be advised to abstain from alcohol for a week prior to surgery and during recuperation.
 Avoid using medications including hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids, and vitamins for at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complications before surgery.
Avoid using aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines, and herbal supplements as they can cause more bleeding.
