Your Chin Augmentation Consultation

Your Chin Implant Consultation

Setting Expectations With Your Plastic Surgeon

Preparing for your chin implant surgery consultation

At your consultation with your plastic surgeon, you will discuss many things. there will be a lot of information exchanged. We recommend that you take a notebook along with you so you can jot down what you discuss. That way, you'll be less likely to forget anything important.

Be sure that you discuss your expectations and goals with your plastic surgeon and that he or she understands what you hope to achieve through surgery and what results you desire. 

Take notes and ask questions about anything you're unsure of. The safety and success of your treatment depends on you being able to speak truthfully and candidly with your surgeon.

Make sure you understand what to expect during your recovery from chin surgery. In particular, you will want to have a list of things that are normal to experience after chin augmentation and a list of those things that aren't normal, which indicate that you should call your doctor.

If you smoke, you will be told to give up smoking for several weeks prior to your surgery. Smoking interferes with the healing process. It is doubly important for chin augmentation patients when the chin implant is inserted through an incision in the mouth.

At your consultation, you will probably receive a list of instructions for you to follow before your surgery. In addition to the smoking cessation mentioned above, some of the other instructions routinely given to chin augmentation patients are:

  • Arrange for transportation home after the surgery.
  • You may be given a prophylactic (preventative) course of antibiotics to help ward off any infection after the surgery. Depending upon the type of prescription, you may be told to start taking the medicine prior to your surgery date.
  • Most people are told to avoid aspirin or other anti-coagulant (blood-thinning) drugs for a period prior to surgery.
  • If you are taking any medication, including prescription drugs, over the counter medications, or even vitamins or herbal supplements, please tell your doctor. Some medications can cause problems with anesthesia, so it's best to play it safe and inform your plastic surgeon of anything you are taking.
  • You should avoid drinking alcoholic beverages before surgery and during your recovery.
  • Wear a shirt or blouse that opens in the front, so you don't have to pull it up and over your head after surgery. You don't want to bump the incisions, your chin, or the sore areas.
  • If you live by yourself, try to have someone stay with you the first night after your surgery.

This list may not be as comprehensive as the instructions you receive from your plastic surgeon's office. Remember, what they tell you should take precedence over what you read here or elsewhere on the Internet.
