Preparing for a Chin Implant

Find Chin Implant Surgery Clinics in London & UK »

Your surgeon will provide you with all the information you require to prepare for chin lift surgery when you meet him in your initial consultation.  The healthier your lifestyle, the better it is for surgery and as a result there may be certain things that you need to change before having a chin lift.  Up to two weeks before the operation you will be given advise on:

  • What you should and shouldn’t be eating.
  • Smoking.
  • Which medicines can and can’t be taken, for example aspirin or anti-inflammatories.
  • Herbal or homeopathic substances.
  • The length of time you ought to take off work, generally this is about a week.
  • What to prepare for when you return home, for example bandages, painkillers and icepacks.

By keeping to your surgeons advise you will be preparing your body for the upheaval it is about to undertake.  Staying as healthy as possible and providing your body with the right nutrients will help it to repair itself faster post-surgery.  Likewise, keeping toxics out will also ensure a quicker recovery time.

Practical Arrangements before a Chin Implant

When you come out of surgery it is important to keep things as stress-free as possible.  It would be worthwhile to ask someone to help you in these initial days and it is a good idea to make these arrangements beforehand.  Things like looking after your children, cooking or housework might prove too much for you so it would be helpful for you to have someone to help.  It should only take a few days before you can resume such everyday activities.  Some time after the operation you can resume your usual lifestyle and habits, such as smoking or strenuous exercise, but you must check with your surgeon as to when it is safe to do so, (these being different on an individual basis).  For some people changing their lifestyle is a serious upheaval, but it is highly necessary to put yourself in the least amount of risk throughout the chin augmentation process.
