Achieve a Stronger Profile With Custom Wrap-Around Jaw Implants
If you desire a more defined chin and jawline, you may be a candidate for custom wrap-around jaw implants. Custom jaw implants are ideal for individuals who have significant chin asymmetry or who require more chin elongation than a traditional chin implant can provide. At Tampa Surgical Arts, we offer custom jaw implants for our patients from a renowned cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Manik S. Bedi. Dr. Bedi is triple board certified and you can count on him to offer skilled treatment and a compassionate approach.
What Are Custom Jaw Implants?
A standard jaw implant comes in a range of specific sizes, which is fine for some patients but not for everyone. During a custom jaw implant, we use 3-D computed tomography (CT) imaging and a computer program to design an implant that has the exact height, width, and depth to meet your specific needs. This means that you’ll need to get a CT scan—something we can arrange for you during your consultation with Dr. Bedi—so that we can have a 3-D rendering of your jawline and chin to design the custom implant.
Who Is a Candidate for This Procedure?
As with all cosmetic surgeries, ideal candidates should be in good health, nonsmokers, and realistic about the results to expect from this procedure. Dr. Bedi can help you determine whether you should seek a traditional jaw or chin implant, or if the wrap-around jaw implant is the right procedure for you. In general, though, this procedure is best for:
- Individuals with weak jawlines and chin asymmetry
- Individuals who want to lengthen, widen, or change the shape of the jaw/chin structure
- Individuals with facial asymmetry due to congenital defects, injury, or aging
What to Expect
Your custom jaw implant surgery will take place at Tampa Surgical Arts, as we have an in-clinic surgery center on site. You will receive a comprehensive packet of information that explains what to do before surgery and what to expect afterward. While you will be able to go home the same day as your procedure, you will need someone to take you to and from our center and stay with you for at least one night.
Mild to moderate discomfort is to be expected after the procedure, as well as swelling and bruising. You’ll be instructed to eat only soft foods for a week, and then you can resume normal eating patterns. While you can return to normal activities within a week of your surgery, strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least two weeks.
