If your facial features are unbalanced and you have a small or receding chin, this facial flaw can dramatically impact your overall appearance. To correct this imbalance, the first step is an aesthetic assessment of your face by Dr. Fechner, a true artist in facial balance.
This evaluation includes the profile of nose, lips and chin in their relationship as a single aesthetic unit.
Known for his impressive surgical skills, experience, and ability to create facial harmony and balance, along with his compassionate, warm demeanor, Dr. Fechner is a highly-sought plastic surgeon serving in the Boston area.
He has performed hundreds of chin surgeries and lectured about this topic at plastic surgery conferences.
Both men and women come to our clinic to receive our Boston chin augmentation surgery. In Dr. Fechner’s experience, this procedure is the most effective way to create harmony and balance in facial structure and correct the following aesthetic problems:
In a man, a strong chin signals vigor, masculinity, and success. In a woman, Dr. Fechner prefers a slightly smaller chin it leads to a more aesthetically pleasing and feminine look. Therefore, he performs our chin augmentation in Boston in his female patients with more conservatism.
Because there is no cookie-cutter method by which harmony and balance can be created in facial features, Dr. Fechner relies on a detailed evaluation of the individual’s facial structure. Next, he will select carefully the perfect size, shape, and projection of an implant.
The chin augmentation procedure is performed on an out-patient basis in Dr. Fechner’s fully-accredited surgical suite using sedation anesthesia. A surgical technique also called “mentoplasty”, he performs this procedure often in conjunction with a rhinoplasty (nose job), neck liposuction or neck lift to create a dramatically improved facial profile.
When Frank Fechner, MD places implants to provide greater chin projection, he places a small incision only. This allows creation of a tissue pocket overlying the chin bone into which he places the carefully-selected implant to create a more pleasing look. The incision is sutured with tiny stitches. Bandages are usually not required after the chinplantation procedure. The surgery requires relatively little time to perform – but must be done with great care and precision to achieve positive results and avoid complications. Dr. Fechner uses the most advanced surgical techniques, all performed with a delicate hand – his patients count on his artistic eye and high level surgical skills.
There are multiple different synthetic materials available on the market for our Worcester chin implant procedure. Dr. Fechner prefers the use of flexible silicone (Silastic) because of his superior track record of safety and efficacy. The silicone material provides a cosmetically pleasing appearance and is known for their longevity and excellent patient tolerance. Dr. Fechner commonly chooses chin implantation as a valuable addition for facial rejuvenation such as a facelift or when performed in conjunction with a rhinoplasty.
Chin surgery is safely performed as an outpatient procedure and the recovery time is approximately one week. You will be fully informed about how to care for yourself following surgery, and Dr. Fechner will carefully evaluate your progress. Most patients experience some swelling and minor numbness of the chin for a few days. Although most of Dr. Fechner’s Worcester chin augmentation patients are presentable with a normal and enhanced look after seven days, it may require several months for the healing process to be complete. You will be required to avoid vigorous motion and exercise during recovery so your body heals correctly.
While facial structure is determined by your genetic background, modern aesthetic surgery makes it possible to improve on what nature provided. You do not have to live with a weak, receding chin that you feel negatively affects your appearance. With chin augmentation Dr. Fechner is able to significantly enhance your entire facial look.
His goal of the surgery is to create the most appealing, aesthetic, natural look for you. The artistry with which Dr. Fechner performs this surgery has made him one of the most sought-after plastic surgeons serving patients in the Boston area at his luxurious, discreet Worcester plastic surgery clinic.
Every person has a unique facial structure and individual issues to resolve. Some may have a receding chin, as well as excess fat beneath the chin. Every surgical procedure performed by Dr. Fechner is custom tailored to address the individual needs of the patient.
Many people are surprised to see that a nose that appeared overly large is now in balance with the facial structure after chin augmentation only. Some patients may be candidates for minor chin enhancements with natural fat transfer or with the use of injectable soft tissue fillers such as Bellafill or Voluma. What is the procedure that is right for you? The first step is a personal consultation with Dr. Fechner to evaluate your facial structure to determine the most effective surgical method to create a more appealing facial appearance.
On behalf of the entire team at Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we would like to take a moment to say thank you again for your loyalty and support during this unprecedented time. The past several months have been unlike anything we've ever experienced, and we're working hard to evolve so that we can continue to provide you with the patient experience you have come to expect from our practice.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa has taken extreme precautionary measures, in addition to following the most up to date CDC recommendations and state guidelines to maximize the health and safety of our patients, staff and facility. Our surgical center and medical spa remain committed to providing the best patient care, and we are actively working to take all necessary precautions as we plan to safely re-open our practice. Please help us continue to protect the health and well-being of our patients and workplace by cooperating with all of our precautionary measures and protocols against COVID-19 at your next appointment, or as you plan for your surgery.
As a fully accredited surgical facility, Fechner MD has always observed the highest level of safety and sanitation. In fact, as a surgeon, Dr. Fechner is an expert in infection control. We want to ensure that we are doing everything possible for our patients to safely return for surgical and medical spa treatments alike.
The upgraded work flow and safety protocols we have implemented at Fechner MD far exceed those being recommended by any government agency.
Fechner MD will adhere to all local, state, and government mandates. We expect to cautiously resume medical spa and injectable treatments during Phase 2 of the Massachusetts phased reopening. We are awaiting a definitive date from Governor Baker. Cosmetic surgery is expected to resume during Phase 3 of Governor Baker’s plan. We ask for your patience and understanding as our staff is working diligently to reschedule all surgeries and procedures affected by our closure. Please understand that in order to open and adhere to Massachusetts guidelines, we will need to limit the number of staff and patients we have in our building and extend the time between patient appointments in order to sanitize rooms. This means we will have fewer available openings for procedures. In order to maximize our provider appointments, we will continue to hold consultations virtually rather than in person, with a few exceptions (body contouring, Instalift, vein treatments).
We thank you in advance for your patience throughout this time, and we look forward to seeing you here again as we begin to resume business operations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa at (508) 754-4000 and our team will gladly assist you. Thank you!
