Impact of chin implants on self esteem

The face a person sees in the mirror isn’t always the face they envision for themselves. With the rise of technology, video communication outlets, such as Skype, are adding to many people’s dissatisfaction with their facial features. This dissatisfaction stems from nonprominent chins and undefined jawlines which have spurred a recent increase in chin implants in NY. Dr. Darrick Antell, a top New York surgeon, provides chin implants in New York City to not only increase the volume and definition of a person’s chin but to also increase their self-confidence and social image as well.

Dr. Antell in Allure Magazine discusses the trend of NYC Chin Implants

The trend of chin implants in NYC

The American Society for Plastic Surgeons recently released new statistics on current plastic surgery trends, and the fastest growing cosmetic procedure in America is chin implants. In a featured Allure Magazine article, Dr. Darrick Antell attributes the rise of chin implants in New York to social interaction in the corporate world. Dr. Antell’s previous research has indicated that 90% of CEOs in Fortune 500 companies have strong chins, while only 40% of the US population displays strong chins. More CEOs with strong chins may rise through the corporate ranks because their superiors subconsciously associate this facial characteristic with self-confidence, authority, and trustworthiness.

Take Charge of your Chin with Chin Implants in NYC

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 AT 3:29 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Committing to a healthy diet and regular exercise program in honor of National Nutrition Month for March is a wonderful, natural way to become more fit, have more energy, and feel great about yourself. A healthy lifestyle can tone your muscles and increase your strength and stamina. Although you may lose weight and gain all of these additional physical and emotional benefits, some problem areas, especially your facial features, may be resistant to all your hard work. One of the most difficult features to define is the line of your jaw and chin, especially if you have a naturally underdeveloped chin. Dr. Darrick E. Antell offers chin implants in NYC to give patients a stronger, more pronounced chin and more balanced facial features.

Chin implant surgery

Physical fitness can potentially define the sharp contours of the face, but the chin isn’t a muscle that can be made large through weightlifting or fat that can be toned down through dieting. The size and shape of some body and facial features unfortunately isn’t something that can be changed with good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Chin implants in New York, however, is an outpatient cosmetic surgery in NY that can enhance the definition and shape of your chin. The implant itself is made of hard silicone and is inserted either through a small incision under the chin or inside the mouth along the lower lip. Dr. Antell performs the procedure in approximately 30 minutes to an hour. Patients will be under local anesthetic and twilight sedation to ensure their comfort and safety throughout surgery. Local anesthetic will numb the chin and surrounding area, and twilight sedation induces a natural-feeling sleep, so patients breathe on their own but are unaware during chin implants in NY.

Most patients return to work within two or three days following the procedure, although strenuous activities and exercise should be avoided for about two weeks. The stitches used during chin implant surgery in NYC are dissolvable, but patients can expect to schedule a follow-up visit with Dr. Antell in the weeks following surgery. Mild swelling usually occurs during the first one to two days following surgery, but swelling will mostly subside within 5 to 7 days.

Chin implants can help you define your physical appearance as you work throughout National Nutrition Month to define your life. Reward all your hard work by considering chin implants in New York City to achieve the defined chin that you deserve.  Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C. S. and his staff welcome patients to voice any questions or concerns you may have about chin implants in NY. You may contact his New York, NY office at 212.988.4040 or request an appointment online to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Antell.

Improve your Facial Profile in One Step with Chin Implants in New York

POSTED ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2011 AT 5:06 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Chin Implants, as well as other facial implant surgeries, can help define and balance the contours of your face. Recently, chin implants have been more popular even than nose and eye surgeries, which had previously been most popular with men. This trend may be caused by famous businessmen and attractive celebrities who both appear confident and have strong chins. A confidence boost is a common reason for patients to choose a chin implant for their facial implant surgery. Although a picture of a strong chin, such as a chin of a celebrity, can help the surgeon better understand the results a patient may be aiming for, patients should look forward to improvement, rather than perfection, when considering their chin implant surgery in NYC.

Darrick Antell MD, F.A.C.S., has both a Medical Degree and a Dental Degree. A combination of these degrees is rare due to the time it takes to achieve each degree, but an understanding of both medicine and dentistry is extremely helpful when performing chin implant surgery in New York.

Dr. Antell will insert the implant either through a small incision inside the mouth along the lower lip or in the skin directly under the chin. Sutures are used to help the incision heal. Sutures are often dissolving, but if there are any sutures in the skin, they will be removed in about a week. The procedure takes approximately thirty minutes to an hour, and patients usually return to work two to three days following the surgery.

While chin implants are intended to last a lifetime, they can be removed if the patient changes their mind or finds they no longer wish to have the implant. Chin reduction in New York may be performed in a second surgery if the implant is later perceived as too large. As with any implant surgery, risks such as infection may occur. Infection can be treated with antibiotics, but in severe cases, the implant may be removed and implanted again at a later date. Chin Implants, as with any cosmetic surgery, aim to improve the patients’ appearance as they desire, but the overall health and satisfaction of the patient is of top priority. Dr. Antell welcomes any questions patients may have.
