Is permanent nerve damage possible with chin augmentation? I've heard stories about permanent nerve damage causing partial paralysis as a result of plastic surgery. Is this a risk with chin augmentation? .

Chin Aug Nerve Inj: Complications and side effects are very uncommon with chin augmentation. However, there is a small degree of risk. The most likely side effect is altered sensation in the chin and lower jaw, which may be temporary or permanent depending on the extent of the surgery. A plastic surgeon will be able to tell you if you are at particular risk for this type of side effect at time of consultation.
