Does chin augmentation have to be performed in a hospital?
Chin augmentation is the fastest growing procedure by popularity for 2011. Studies have shown that people with strong chins are perceived to be more attractive, intelligent, and successful. The procedure is performed in the hospital or a certified in office surgical suite under twilight sedation. We perform them in our certified in office certified surgical suite often with just oral sedation such as Valium and numbing injections. The procedure is performed through a small incision under the chin where a solid silicone implant is inserted. There is minimal discomfort after the surgery. Most patients return to work in one week.
