Is it for me?
An unbalanced chin can detract from otherwise attractive features. If you feel your chin is too small or too large for your face, chin surgery could help to balance your profile. Proportionate features can have an enormous impact on your appearance – and with next to no scarring.
In your personal consultation with Dr Hunt, he will draw on his extensive craniofacial surgery experience to determine the best way to achieve your desired results. He’ll explain his recommended chin surgery in detail, and answer any questions.
Dr Hunt will perform your chin surgery under a general anaesthetic, administered by an experienced member of the Australian Society of Anaethetists.
Dr Hunt will reshape the bone of your chin to achieve a more attractive proportion, as agreed prior to your surgery. This will be achieved by making a tiny incision in your mouth, resulting in very minimal scarring.
Dr Hunt will make a small incision in your mouth before inserting a chin implant, selected prior to your surgery to achieve the best possible balance with your other facial features. Because the implant is inserted through your mouth, you are likely to experience little to no scarring.
When can I go home?
Most of Dr Hunt’s chin surgery patients stay in hospital overnight, although in some cases you may go home the same day as your surgery. You will be prescribed medication to manage any pain once you get home.
Will I have to return for post-operative care?
You will see Dr Hunt within the week after your surgery. At this time, any sutures will be removed.
You’ll then have follow up visits to ensure both you and Dr Hunt are happy with your surgery results. These will occur at six weeks, and again at three, six and 12 months.
How long will I be off work?
You will need to allow 7 to 10 days off work to recover.
When can I resume my normal activities?
When you get home from hospital, you will need to rest in bed with your head elevated for the first day, and limit your movements to around the house for the next two or three days. Dr Hunt also recommends eating lightly during this time. However, you will be able to resume all other activities as soon as you feel comfortable.
When will I see the end result?
You will notice a positive change in your chin and appearance the moment your dressings are removed. However, it will take around six weeks for the full effect of your transformation to unfold.
