I am a 32-year-old female and would like a chin implant to enhance the contour of my face. Is this procedure done in the office or is it a surgery that I will have to go under anesthesia for?
Chin implant surgery is rarely done under general anesthesia. We often perform the procedure under a straight local anesthesia. I prefer to do it in an operative setting so that mild sedation can be administered. The incision is approximately half an inch long, and the procedure takes approximately 30 minutes, and you’re able to return to your routine activities on the day after surgery.
