Chin implant changing positions
I am considering chin augmentation. What are the chances that a chin implant can shift positions?
The risk of a chin implant shifting position is low. There are several maneuvers utilized in the procedure to minimize this risk. One technique I use is to limit the area of surgery so that the implant fits in a pocket underneath the tissues and against the chin bone; a smaller area of surgery minimizes the risk of movement of the implant. Also, I stitch the implant into position, thus further minimizing the risk of the implant shifting positions.
