Getting a chin enhancement with implant

The benefits of a chin enhancement with implant in Charlotte NC
If you feel that your face is unremarkable because of a smaller than average chin, you might be interested in chin enhancement with implant. A properly formed chin, distinctive but not overlarge, exaggerated creates an impression of strength, integrity and decision. The chin bone also acts as the tentpole for the muscles of the neck, helping them remain taut and limiting the sagging neck that is often a sign of advancing age. So a chin implant can help you look young for a little longer.

A smaller deficit in the chin area can be treated temporarily with fillers, or more permanently with a fat implant, but if you’re ready for a more significant chin enhancement with implant, you’ll want to see what your facial plastic surgeon has to offer. He or she may have a chin implant that would work for your particular face. If he or she doesn’t have one, it should be possible to have one custom-made.

In the surgery, which usually takes under an hour, the surgeon creates a pocket on the bone and inserts the implant into it. Five to six days later, you can have your sutures taken out. There may be some swelling and bruising around the chin and neck, which should last a week to ten days. During this time, there may also be some stiffness when smiling or talking, but this also passes. Before and after the procedure, you should take the oral antibiotics your surgeon prescribes.
