Facelift after Jaw Implant Removal
A facelift is one alternative to be considered depending on your needs after implant removal. There are many variables, such as how old are you, was the implant on your chin or the side of your jaw, and what are your present goals, all of which will influence our recommendations. Submit pictures for the posters to review or have a consultation with a surgeon experienced in facial rejuvenation.
Facelift and chin implant
We will need photos to be able to correctly give you an impression. A Facelift may improve some of the contour of the chin if there is not a lot of deficient tissue. We would have to see also the condition of the chin after the chin implant was removed; due to infection, amount of scar tissue. It is better to be evaluated by an experienced Facial Plastic Surgeon.
Management of Chin Implant deformity
The treatment of your post-chin implant removal deformity would depend on the exact nature of the deformity, any underlying bone defect or resorption and other factors. Various possibilities may be exercised but they depend on your specific findings.
