A strong, masculine profile
Are you wondering about chin implants for men? Chin augmentation is a very straightforward, and fairly quick procedure that can make a major difference in a man’s appearance. This is because you can balance and enhance a man’s facial features, by turning a “weak chin” into a more attractive jaw line, giving a more masculine look to the face.
What are chin implants made from?
Chin implants are made from a variety of materials. Much depends upon the manufacturer, and the type of product. Charlotte’s most experienced facial plastic surgeon uses implants that are made of a safe, biocompatible material, that can mold to a handsome and natural look. Implants can be made out of both solid and semi-solid materials that have been used successfully for years. Chin implants come in various shapes and sizes because every procedure requires a personalized fit that is unique to each individual’s facial structure and goals. Your doctor will work closely with you, in an effort to find the option that works best, and to ensure that you will be happy with your results after surgery.
Expectations during and after surgery
Chin augmentation is typically performed under local anesthesia, and can be performed under general anesthesia. Your facial plastic surgeon will make an incision just under the chin, in the natural crease line, or inside the mouth behind the lower lip. Your surgeon will insert the implant through the incision and affix it in place. Once the chin implant is in the appropriate position, and the desired results have been achieved, your doctor will close the incision and cover it with surgical dressings.
The surgery commonly lasts less than one hour. It can be performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty and/or a facelift to achieve full facial balance. Chin augmentation results in little to no visible scarring.
A chin incision is negligibly noticeable, while an incision in the mouth would have no visible scarring.
Other than a new, stronger looking chin, your procedure should leave no other physical reminders of surgery.
