Chin Augmentation Reviews
"Perfect Chin Filler with Juvederm - Plano, TX - My experience with Dr Ho was what everyone should have with their PS!! The office was beautiful and high end. Office staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Dr Ho was incredibly knowledgeable but not once did he come across as arrogant. He was very patient as I asked a thousand questions. I never felt rushed and was given as much of his time as I needed. He is a true artist, and the end results speak for themselves!"- L. / RealSelf / Sep 15, 2015

What to Expect
A patient will be under general anesthesia during chin surgery, and this outpatient procedure will be performed at an accredited surgical facility. The plastic surgeon will make a small incision either inside of the mouth or under the chin. An implant, which is made of biocompatible, medical-grade materials, will be placed carefully into the incision. After the implant is placed, the incision will be stitched up. If the incision was made in the mouth, a patient will experience no visible scarring. For incisions under the chin, the scar will be carefully hidden to avoid detection. The entire surgery takes around 1 hour to complete.
Right after chin augmentation surgery, a dressing will be applied to the chin where it should remain for 3 – 4 days. Patients can expect some pain, tenderness, and swelling. Also, patients can experience a tight, stretched sensation following surgery. These symptoms usually go away in about 1 week. After the swelling subsides in a few weeks, patients will be able to see the results of their surgery. The implant will look and feel like normal bone. More importantly, the implant will have the consistency of a patient’s natural tissue to make it appear more natural.

define your profile
A weak chin not only makes your profile look weak, but can also make your nose appear to be large and disproportionate. While some patients think they need a nose job, they may only need chin augmentation surgery to achieve full facial harmony and symmetry.
