Minimizing risks associated with chin implant surgery
In some cases, getting a chin implant from an inexperienced surgeon can increase the risk of nerve damage that may lead to permanent loss of lower lip sensation or movement. Although rare, this is something to consider when searching for the right surgeon to perform the procedure on you. The risk of infection is present with any surgical procedure, however, this can often be treated with antibiotics. Lastly, implants can begin to show some resorption to the bottom jaw bone over time, but this is usually not a serious problem and is usually only visible through an x-ray. Risks can vary greatly from person to person, which is why it is crucial to do your due diligence in finding an experienced facial plastic surgeon. I hope this helps
