Surgical technique during chin augmentation
During chin augmentation, Dr. Starkman begins by carefully making a short incision just under your chin. Through this incision, he makes a tight pocket to secure the implant in place, which is just on top of the front of the jaw bone.
The implant is inserted through the incision and positioned over the bone into that tight pocket, directly below your bottom lip. When necessary, Dr. Starkman will sculpt the implant to correct for pre-existing asymmetries in the jawline.
