Want to see what other people see when they view your facial profile? Situate yourself so you can view your profile in a mirror. Now imagine a vertical line from your lower lip to your chin. Does your chin meet that line? Are your facial features in perfect symmetry? If not, and you have questions about what you can do to correct it, then you may want to consider a chin implant in Scottsdale.
Having a profile that is “celebrity-perfect” can provide a valuable boost to your confidence and self-esteem. If you are uncomfortable about what you look like from a side-view and are looking for help in strengthening a weak profile, you need to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Ronald J. Caniglia.

Why Some Profiles are Not Perfect
If you have a small, weak-looking chin it can make your nose appear that it is protruding too far out and is far too prominent compared to the rest of your face. Another condition that may affect one’s profile is located on either side of the chin. Known as pre-jowl depression, it is a sign of an aging face and gives the unflattering appearance of sagging skin.
Ideal Candidates for Chin Implant Procedures
While age is not a factor in determining who can safely be considered for a chin implant, this procedure is primarily for patients with a chin deficiency or who exhibit considerable pre-jowl depression. When you consult with Dr. Caniglia, he will perform a thorough examination of your facial skin and muscle tone to determine the proper course of treatment.
The Chin Implant Procedure
All chin implant procedures are performed by Dr. Caniglia under local anesthesia with sedation. It takes 30 minutes to complete. After you rest and recover, you are sent home. Your chin may feel numb or stiff immediately following surgery, but any discomfort will quickly dissipate. The sutures will dissolve on their own. Most patients are able to return to work within seven days and can resume strenuous activity and exercise in about two weeks.
