It’s been three and a half months since my chin implant, and I think it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
The entire process was extremely stress-free, from being driven between the airport, clinic, and my flat by Mark, to the surgery itself. When I arrived at the clinic, the staff were very welcoming and made me feel like I was in good hands. My surgeon Lukas made his assessment as to which size of implant would be best for me and explained the process in detail. I also had plenty of time to read through the various documents I had to agree to and didn’t feel rushed to make a final decision.
When I woke up after the surgery, I could already see that the results were exactly what I wanted. Lukas came to check on me in my room, and he mentioned that he was very pleased with the job he’d done too. After this, I had a short assessment by one of the nurses to make sure the sedative had worn off, and I was driven back to my flat by Mark.
The next few days were probably the most challenging part of the surgery as I had significant swelling in my chin, and I was only allowed to consume liquids. I had another assessment by Lukas to make sure I was healing well, and then a final check-up by one of the nurses five days after the surgery before I flew home. By this time, the swelling was much better (but still a little noticeable), although some dark bruising under my chin took a few days to subside.
There was a feeling of tightness in my chin for the next few weeks, especially when pulling my lower lip over my bottom teeth. I suppose this was due to some minor swelling still being present. Also, a small muscle was severed during the surgery making my smile a little odd for the healing period because I couldn’t pull the centre of my lower lip down as far; now I’m completely healed both of these issues have gone away. The stitches took around two months to dissolve completely, and now they’re gone there’s just the faintest of scars on the inside of my lip. The implant has made a remarkable difference to my face.
All in all, I would recommend CORAMED to anyone considering plastic surgery, and I could not be happier with the staff, the service they provided, and the results.
