Heredity may have given you a "weak chin" or pectoral and calf muscles that do not respond to rigorous exercise. To combat these issues, you can turn to implant surgery. Dr. Wally Zollman offers numerous augmentation surgery options, breast implants, calf implants, chin implants, and pectoral implant procedures at his Indiana plastic surgery practice.
You might not even realize how important the chin's size is in the aesthetics of the face â€” unless, of course, you have a chin that is disproportionate to the rest of your features. If you have a "weak" or receding chin, you may have already looked into chin implants. Indiana plastic surgeon Wally Zollman, M.D., is experienced in inserting chin implants to restore definition to patients' faces.
Many patients interested in chin implants combine the plastic surgery with other surgical procedures. Often rhinoplasty is performed with a chin implant procedure, since the size of the chin and nose should be in balance to create optimal facial proportions. Chin implants may also be combined with facelift plastic surgery. This combination will create a more defined chin through both the chin implants and the reduction of loose jowls.
In addition to the option of combining other procedures with chin implants, Indiana cosmetic surgeon Wally Zollman, M.D., will discuss the outpatient surgery, as well as possible complications, recovery time, and the option of inserting chin implants through an incision either below the chin or in the mouth. Also during the consultation, you'll want to be sure to discuss your desired results with Dr. Zollman; chin implants can vary in size, and your chin augmentation outcome should match your hopes.
If you are unable to increase the size of your pectoral muscles (commonly called "pecs") through exercise, or if you suffered from a growth defect or injury that caused the underdevelopment of your chest muscles, you may want to consider pectoral implant surgery.
The pectoral implant surgery at our Indianapolis , Indiana cosmetic surgery practice can increase the appearance of pecs for men who want a "bulked up" look. It can also create an aesthetically pleasing chest for men who suffer from underdeveloped pectorals. Although the pectoral implant procedure can increase the mass of the pecs, it cannot create muscle definition. Exercise is still the only way to get muscle fibers to show through the skin.
Similar to the female breast augmentation procedure, an implant is inserted to increase the size of the chest during male pectoral implant surgery. Unlike saline breast implants, a pectoral implant is made from solid silicone. (Since the silicone is not in gel form, it does not hold the risks of FDA-recalled silicone breast implants.) Dr. Zollman will place a pectoral implant under your chest muscle. Though the size of the pectoral implant will be discussed during your pre-surgery consultation, your pectoral augmentation should produce the desired results of a larger chest.
Both male and female cosmetic surgery patients at Zollman Plastic Surgery in Indianapolis request calf implants. This outpatient procedure is desired to create a proportional balance between calf muscles and the rest of the leg. It is also used to construct a more defined look, and to correct muscle deterioration or underdevelopment due to medical conditions such as polio, spina bifida, and club foot. Calf implants are made from silicone material similar to that in a pectoral implant.
Dr. Zollman can perform calf augmentation through the use of a calf implant or through fat injection. The fat injection procedure will utilize fat from a donor area on your body, reducing the chance of an allergic reaction. This plastic surgery procedure may require general anesthesia or an overnight hospital stay, depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed and re-injected. During your consultation, Dr. Zollman will discuss which procedure may better suit your needs.
