Can A chin augmentation Change The Appearance Of My Nose?
A large nose can make a normal-sized chin appear deficient. Conversely, a small, weak, retrusive, or asymmetric chin can make your nose appear bigger. When receiving chin augmentation, Dr. Givens will create a natural increase in volume, width, and projection that balances with your nose.
Which Is Better: Facial Implants Or Dermal Filler Injection?
While both facial implants and dermal filler injections can define and restore facial volume, each patient is unique and requires a customized treatment strategy to achieve aesthetic goals. Facial implantation uses FDA approved custom facial implants manufactured from materials proven to be compatible with human tissue to create a restored, natural appearance that lasts for decades.
Can A Surgically-placed Custom Facial Implant Move?
Dr. Givens’ meticulous technique is designed to keep your implant in position. Although it is possible for an implant to move within the first few weeks after surgery, it is uncommon. During recovery, your face may appear swollen and lumpy with variable amounts of bruising, discoloration, and asymmetry. While this is temporary and will subside to a large extent within two weeks, it will require a minimum of six months for all swelling and bruising to resolve and a full year for the implanted region to reach its final contour.
Which Other Procedures can Complement Facial Implants?
At Givens Facial Plastic Surgery in Austin, chin augmentation and other facial implants can be complemented by several different procedures, depending on individual patient needs. Some of the most common procedures done are: a brow lift, an eyelid lift, a lip lift, buccal fat removal, rhinoplasty, and even liquid rhinoplasty.
