Chin implant and rhinoplasty performed together
The majority of chin implants that we place are either small or medium implants, composed of Silastic, inserted through a submental approach under local anesthesia. We prefer the anatomical chin implant or a pre-jowl chin implant for best results. In rhinoplasty we prefer to use patient's own natural cartilage for implantation across the bridge when available. Rhinoplasty was performed under general anesthesia. Silastic implants are also available when a large nasal dorsal augmentation is required. please see the link below for examples of the combination of chin implant and rhinoplasty.
The secret of your rhinoplasty and chin surgeries is... shape and size
You need two implants: one for the nose and the other for the chin. The trick is deciding on the exact shape of both. That takes an experienced surgeon who performs at least one to two implants of this kind every month.
