For Dr. Kevin Sadati, the ultimate goal of any rhinoplasty procedure is to bring harmony to the patient’s face. While he is able to strike this balance for most patients using just a rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Sadati finds that, for some patients, a chin implant is necessary in order to get that truly natural and beautiful look. A rhinoplasty and chin implant performed at the same time will provide patients with the facial profile they have always deserved — one that is strong, defined and best of all, harmonious.
Dr. Sadati notes that about 20 percent of his rhinoplasty patients at his Newport Beach practice will also opt to have a chin implant procedure done at the same time. The chin implant is completed by injecting silicone or other permanent materials such as Gortex deep into the muscle layer of the chin. The chin can then be sculpted in order to eliminate deformities as well as bring balance to the patient’s face. Chin implant materials are designed to last for the rest of the patient’s life. This means they do not have to have this procedure performed again, and the materials do not have to be changed at any point.
As with all of his Orange County patients, Dr. Sadati will craft a custom surgical plan for patients who want to have a rhinoplasty and a chin implant done at the same time. He will evaluate a patient’s facial bone structure as well as their personal history and ethnic background before deciding on the right shape for their new chin. His goal will be to match the new shape and profile of the nose to that of the chin, providing a new sense of harmony to the patient’s face. It’s this balance that often makes a patient feel confident and beautiful again.
Some patients are not only a good candidate for the chin implant, but they also require chin liposuction at the same time. Excess fat around the chin is often hereditary, and can be frustrating for patients who have it. It is difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise alone, so many times a quick chin liposuction procedure will be performed before the chin implant takes place. This procedure often has a tremendous impact on the final result of the surgery.
Patients who are interested in having a chin implant performed at the same time as their rhinoplasty surgery should make sure to address their desires with Dr. Sadati at their initial consultation. At that point, Dr. Sadati can study the patient’s facial profile and decide if they are a good candidate for a chin implant. Not every patient will require this extra step and Dr. Sadati will not recommend unnecessary surgeries to his patients. However, for some patients, a chin implant is the only way they will get the facial harmony they are seeking. It’s a way to alter the facial profile for the best, and can be a life-changing experience.
