Chin

The position of your chin can change your entire look. A small ‘micrognathic’ or ‘retrognathic’ chin will change the appearance of your nose and make it look large. In fact, many people who feel that their nose is too big for their face actually have a disproportionately small chin. Temporary chin augmentation can be achieved with filler, or a permanent result can be given with a chin implant procedure.

Book an appointment with Dr. Brace if you feel you may benefit from our Kitchener chin augmentation and he can guide you through the process to give you the result you are looking for.

Chin Implant

Combining a chin implant with a rhinoplasty is a common procedure to achieve facial harmony, however, chin implants can be performed as stand-alone procedures. A chin implant is often incorporated into neck lifts, facelifts, and rhinoplasty surgery if the patient does not have a strong projecting chin. The advantages of an implant are permanent alteration of the chin size, customizable shape and size, and reversibility of the procedure. The procedure can be done under local anesthetic, IV sedation, or general anesthesia. The incision is usually made in the skin under the chin but can be made inside the mouth under the lower lip to avoid external scars. The procedure takes 30-40 minutes. Antibiotics and pain medication are provided. Sutures in the skin are removed 1 week later. Laser treatments are used as needed to help any external scars fade. There are few disadvantages of a chin implant limited to potential infection, temporary chin numbness, and scar problems.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients,

All in-office treatments, procedures, and appointments have resumed. At Guelph Facial Plastics we are committed to protecting the safety of our patients, staff, and the general public while maintaining our high standard of quality care. As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the following changes to our patient care practices in accordance with all provincial and Public Health recommendations:

  • We will be pre-screening all patients that are scheduled to come into our office. We will ask patients to stay home with symptoms of COVID-19, chronic lung disease, severe asthma, serious heart conditions, and uncontrolled type 1 diabetes.
  • The timing of patient visits has been adjusted in order to limit the number of people in the office at a given time and to allow for enhanced disinfecting and cleaning protocols we have put in place in between patients. We have also enhanced the air filtration quality in our space to provide patients with surgically clean air.
  • You must call from your vehicle upon arrival before entering the clinic. We request that patients come on their own to all appointments unless absolutely necessary. For your safety, all of our staff will be wearing masks when interacting with patients in the office and routine hand-washing is required.
  • We request that you wear a mask. Hand sanitation stations will be available upon entering and throughout the office.
  • We are pleased to continue to offer virtual visits as an option for non-urgent appointments.
  • Cosmetic surgery has not resumed at Guelph General Hospital, however, we are pleased to offer our patients the option of undergoing surgery at a Clinic 360 - a fully-equipped private surgical center.

We look forward to continuing to help our patients look and feel their best! We encourage you to reach out to our office now to schedule your appointment.
