What to Expect
A patient will be under deep sedation during chin surgery, which is performed as an
outpatient procedure at Orange County Surgery Center.The plastic surgeon will make a small
incision on 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 closed. If the incision was made in the mouth,
the patient will have 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.
