The Advantages Of Chin Implant Abroad 

A chin implant abroad is the ideal treatment for a patient suffering from a receding chin. The procedure improves your face's structure and gives it a more defined jawline. Cosmetic procedures abroad are more cost-effective than in your local country.

Medical tourism spots like Turkey, Poland, and Hungary offer Jaw implant surgery at lower cost and deliver a high satisfaction rate based on patient reviews. The cosmetic surgeons in these countries are as qualified as surgeons from the UK, USA, and Europe, if not better.

Some of the benefits you will experience from seeking a chin implant abroad include:

Confidential and Private 

Some patients want to keep their medical choices private, so seeking treatment abroad provides them with more confidentiality. Medical tourism offers a solution to this problem; you can publicly announce you're going on holiday while seeking the treatment you need.

You get access to superior patient care services.

Most doctors usually see their patients once a month. So, an average doctor spends fewer than seven minutes with a patient. Ultimately, this means that patients don't experience good patient care services from their doctors.

On the other hand, if you travel abroad to receive treatment, you can expect to be treated with care and respect when you go abroad. The surgeons in these reputable hospitals take time to talk to their patients.

It is safe to have the procedure abroad. 

You will find the surgeons are highly experienced with years of practice. Their clinics are accredited by renowned institutions like Joint Commission International JCI or International Organization for Standardization ISO.

You have access to innovative treatment options. 

Traveling abroad to have the cosmetic procedure will open other possibilities or introduce a better, more effective treatment.

Tips For Choosing The Best Mentoplasty Surgery Clinic Abroad 

  • Verify the surgeon's experience. Ask about the surgeon's education, additional fellowship training, and how often they performed the treatment. 
  • Schedule an online consultation. Most clinics or hospitals that work with international patients offer this service. 
  • Research the condition of the clinic before booking. It's recommended to visit the clinic before booking and finalizing the procedure. Talk to the staff and past patients if possible. 
  • Ask what's the follow-up steps after the surgery and aftercare procedure steps. 
  • Choose the right surgeon, do your due diligence, and enquire. 
  • Plan your trip well, and give yourself time to rest after the treatment.

Mentoplasty surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery, chin augmentation surgery, or chin implant surgery are not recommended for patients suffering from one or more of the following conditions: 

  • Severe microgenia – an extremely small or deformed chin 
  • Labial incompetence 
  • Lip protrusion 
  • Severe protrusion 
  • Periodontal disease

How many trips do I need to take abroad to complete the procedure? 

You will need 1 trip abroad to complete the whole procedure, and follow up with your local doctor. 

How long should you stay in the hospital after the surgery? 

An overnight stay is not required

How long is the surgery? 

The surgery will take 1 to 2 hours

What to avoid before the surgery? 

Patients need to quit smoking at least a month before and after the surgery. Blood thinners such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, herbal teas, and supplements are forbidden for at least 2 weeks before the procedure.

How is the surgery performed? 

Prior to surgery, x-rays of the chin and face are taken and the surgeon decides on which parts of the chin area to modify based on these x-rays.

Depending on the patient’s expectations and his or her facial balance, one of these procedures can be performed: mentoplasty surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery, chin augmentation surgery or chin implant surgery.


Anesthesia choice for these procedures can be local or general. Incisions can be created inside, in the mouth or outside, right under the chin.

If the patient requires a chin implant, the surgeon will create a small pocket in front of the chin bone but under the muscle in order to place the implant. 

Different types of implants can be chosen, general options are: 

  • Bone grafted from the patient 
  • Fat tissue 
  • Silicone implant 
  • Biological inserts 


An artificial chin implant is one of the most preferred options as it has a lower risk of developing complications such as infections. The surgeon may also create cuts into the jaw bone or remove and reposition the chin bone for a better effect.

Jaw implant recovery time 

The average chin implant surgery recovery period lasts around 3 weeks. Patients usually return to work and normal activities in around 2 weeks. Patients need to sleep face-up, their heads should be elevated, for a minimum of 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. It helps control post-op swelling and protect the incisions. 

Around 80% of the post-op swelling will gradually disappear in 3 weeks. Patients should avoid chewing for the first few days after the procedure – liquid or soft foods can be consumed during this time.

Chin implant complications abroad 

Chin implant surgery risks and complications can include: 

  • The shift in implant position
  • Asymmetry 
  • Infection 
  • Scarring around the incision area

Chin implant surgery side effects can include: 

  • Anesthesia side effects
  • Swelling 
  • Lower lip numbness 
  • Hematoma (internal bleeding)

Chin implant success rate 

Chin implant surgery reviews set the average success rate at 94%.

Results are immediately noticeable after chin implant surgery. Patients need to avoid chewing for a few days and also avoid smoking for a month after the operation.

These precautions will help reduce surgical scars and allow the body to heal better. The post-op swelling will pass in around 3 weeks, but the bone, if altered, will continue to heal over the course of a year.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can Chin Implant Surgery Be Combined With Other Procedures?
Definitely – plastic surgeons recommend combining chin implant procedure usually with rhinoplasty. That way, it is easier to achieve a pleasing facial balance and harmony.  

When Can I Resume Sports?
Sports or any other effortful physical activities need to be avoided for at least 3 weeks after chin implant surgery. 

Can The Implant Affect Shaving?
Absolutely not – male patients will be able to shave as normal, approximately one week from the operation. Electric razors or shavers can be used again around 10 days after the procedure.

How many days should I travel/stay abroad to do the treatment?

You will need a minimum of 1 to 2 weeks off work.
