Where is the best place to undergo chin implant surgery in Atlanta?

Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs chin surgery for patients in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, and the surrounding communities in Georgia. The chin is a major part of one’s profile. When people look in the mirror, they focus on the size and shape of their eyes, noses, ears, sagging jowls or fine wrinkles. They are less likely to notice an unbalanced chin.

Surgeons such as Dr. Majmundar, who specialize in rhinoplasty (surgery of the nose), are often the first to suggest that changes in chin size or shape may enhance a profile as much as a rhinoplasty. It is common for a facial plastic surgeon to recommend chin surgery, in addition to nose surgery, when he or she sees that chin augmentation is necessary to achieve facial balance and harmony.

Is chin implant surgery right for me?

A harmonious profile can be achieved by inserting an implant to advance a receding chin, or by reducing the bone to correct a prominent one. The result can be greater facial balance, an increase in self-confidence, and an improved self-image.

Liposuction of the chin or neck can also be performed as another possibility for improvement in sculpting the chin and neckline.

What are the benefits of a chin implant?

  • Improved self-confidence
  • Long-lasting results
  • A more attractive profile
  • Refined jawline
  • A more balanced appearance to the nose
  • A natural-looking outcome
  • A wide range of implant shape and sizes
  • Options for enhancement with fat transfer or fillers

What can I expect from my surgery?

Dr. Majmundar begins the chin augmentation by making an incision in the natural crease just under the chin, or inside the mouth where the gums and lower lip meet. By gently stretching this tissue, Dr. Majmundar creates a space where an implant can be placed.

The implant--made of synthetic material that feels much like natural tissue normally found in the chin--is available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. This allows custom fitting of the implant to the patient’s face. When the incision is made inside the mouth, no scarring is visible. If the incision is under the chin, the scar is usually undetectable.

If neck liposuction is needed to redefine the neckline and chin, it can be performed at the same time through the same incision made just under the chin. If the chin augmentation or reduction is performed through the mouth, then a small ¼ inch incision is made in the natural crease line just under the chin to perform the liposuction.

What can I expect from my recovery?

Immediately after surgery, a dressing is applied that will remain in place for approximately 24 hours. A chin strap will be worn as much as possible the following week. Recovery usually takes 7 to 10 days, but some patients can return to work after seven days with makeup.

Most patients feel a stretched, tight sensation after chin augmentation, but this usually subsides in a week. Liposuction performed at the same time usually does not prolong the patient’s recovery.

  • Surgery: Outpatient
  • Anesthesia: IV sedation or general anesthesia
  • Procedure length: On average, 1 hour
  • Recovery: On average, 7-10 days

What if I have special concerns about my outcome?

We consult with hundreds of men and women in Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia every month regarding their facial appearance, and the most common concern or fear is ‘looking pulled’ or ‘weird’. At Northside Plastic Surgery, we specialize in surgical and nonsurgical procedures that achieve youthful and natural results. Our signature procedures, such as our natural facelift, natural brow lift, or no scar rhinoplasty, are designed to result in a balanced, healthy and natural contour.

What is the cost for chin implant surgery?

The costs for your surgery will be assessed on a case by case basis during your private consultation with Dr. Majmundar in Atlanta. Your fee will depend on the complexity of the surgery, as well as whether you are undergoing any additional procedures in tandem, such as a rhinoplasty or facelift. We will help you to finance your treatment.

Why should I choose Dr. Majmundar for my Atlanta chin implant procedure?

As a board certified plastic surgery, Dr. Majmundar focuses exclusively on the face, head and neck, and is able to deliver exceptional, personalized results that promote a youthful, refreshed aesthetic. He has been named among the nation’s “top doctors” by Atlanta Magazine, Castle Connolly, and the US News and World Report.

Dr. Majmundar graduated in the top 10% of his class at the Medical College of Georgia, and was ranked in the top 6% nationally on his facial plastic surgery board examination.

Practice Update re: COVID-19 situation

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the corona virus, we have taken the following additional measures to protect our patients:

  1. Until April 30, 2020, we are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for all new patients.
  2. Our teams are receiving ongoing briefings, trainings, and enhanced operating protocols as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
  3. We are introducing the “No ‘waiting’ waiting room”. In general, we are reducing waiting times; but also, as a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our larger size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing and the number of individuals in each reception area.
  4. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  5. We are asking all patients and staff members to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer when entering the office and exam rooms.
  6. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we are not subject to actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  7. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until mid-April.
  8. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the corona virus
  9. We are instructing staff to welcome our patients with a nod or wave instead of fist bumps, elbow bumps, or handshakes.
  10. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please cancel and reschedule your appointments. We advise you to call your family doctor if you have any of these symptoms. Also, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the corona virus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from the time of your visit.
  11. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
