Chin job in Charlotte

Using a chin job in Charlotte NC to enhance your good looks

A chin job in Charlotte can be a surprisingly simple way to turn a bland, forgettable or unappealing face into one that people find strikingly attractive. This can take the form of a chin implant, or mentoplasty. A sliding genioplasty is a form of bone graft that can also be used to enhance your chin. Less permanent procedures involve the injection of fillers or fat onto the chin. Not only does a strong and well-shaped chin create an impression of decisiveness, purpose and integrity, it also acts as a tent pole for the neck muscles, keeping them taut longer as you age. A chin job is sometimes done alongside or instead of a nose job, to make the nose look less prominent by comparison.


If your facial plastic surgeon decides that this chin job in Charlotte requires an implant for your chin bone, he or she will start by choosing the right implant for your face, or, if necessary, having one custom made. In the chin implant surgery, which should not take more than an hour, the surgeon makes an incision under your chin where it can’t be seen, creates a pocket on your chin bone and inserts the implant into the pocket. The sutures are taken out five to six days later. At this point there will probably be some temporary swelling and bruising around your chin and neck, and possibly some stiffness when smiling or talking. You may also need oral antibiotics.
