Q&A of Pin Removal

Q1:Do I have to get the pins removed?

No, you don’t have to.

The pins are made of metals for surgery and treatment. It’s the same material used for teeth implant, causing no harm to human body so the removal is up to your personal choice.

Q2:Why were the pins used?

They were used to make a perfect fixation.

In case of cheekbone reduction surgery where your bone is completely cut, pins are needed to tightly fix the skin tissue and muscles and make them heal faster between the bones. This procedure equally happens with the V Line Front Chin Surgery, creating a fast agglutination of bones.

Q3:When can I remove the pins?

It depends on each person, but normally after 6 months in average.

In average, most people can receive the pin removal surgery after 6 months~1 year of their surgery. However, recovery process differs for each person, so a consultation with a doctor is needed.
