Chin Implants in Baltimore, MD
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Theda C. Kontis offers chin implants to the residents of Baltimore, Maryland, Washington, DC, and the surrounding areas.
Chin implants can be an effective option for patients who are looking to refine their facial appearance and add balance to what appears to be an unbalanced profile. Chin implants can greatly improve a person’s appearance by reshaping the chin or inserting an implant if the chin is small or somehow misshapen. Patients often cannot believe the results that can be achieved from a chin implant, which can dramatically change their appearance.
How is a chin implant performed?
During a chin implant, Dr. Kontis will begin by making a small incision in the naturally occurring line underneath the chin. The skin is then pulled outward so that the implant can be inserted. Each patient consults with the doctor to choose an implant that is the appropriate size and shape for them.
The entire procedure takes one to two hours, and there is very little recovery time required after the surgery.
Am I a good candidate for a chin implant?
Dr. Kontis commonly recommends chin implants to patients who may be dealing with low self-esteem due to a small chin that may create the appearance of an unbalanced face and undefined profile.
What is the cost of a chin implant?
The cost of a chin implant varies greatly and depends largely on the extent of revision needed for your scars. Dr. Kontis offers her patients a chance to meet with the patient coordinator after the initial consultation to discuss payment options and price.
