Seattle Revision Rhinoplasty & Chin Implant Surgery Before & After - M03

Updated: Oct 4, 2021

This patient had a Revision Rhinoplasty replacing a graft for augmentation, and a chin implant procedure. Both Cosmetic procedures were done on the same day. This patient's after photos are taken just 3 weeks after the double-procedure.

The increased projection of both the nasal tip and the chin redefine the facial profile. Notice, especially in the last photo comparison, how the improvement is already showing, even though there is still considerable swelling just 3 weeks into recovery.

Chin Augmentation involves a small incision below the mandible--or Jaw bone--specifically under the chin. Carefully, the skin of the chin is carefully elevated so that there is a "pocket" where the implant may fit comfortably and securely. A biocompatible implant (I prefer silicone implants for their reliable safety, material integrity, and they are easy to access and manipulate in case of complications) that has been modeled to achieve the aesthetic goals of the patient is inserted through the small incision. When the implant is securely placed, the incision is closed with just a couple stitches. Because of the placement of the incision, behind the cusp of the jawbone, the scar is minimally visible -- even more so for men because facial hair can obscure scarring. Notice how the incision doesn't particularly stand out, even just 3 weeks after the procedure.
