Getting a chin implant in Charlotte NC

Whether you’re male or female, getting a chin implant in Charlotte NC can have a surprising effect on your physical attractiveness. A chin that is properly formed and distinctive without looking exaggerated creates an impression of strength, purpose and decisiveness. 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 keep the appearance of youth longer. A good facial plastic surgeon will sometimes perform a chin implant instead of or as part of a nose job, to bring balance and harmony to the face.


In order to do this, the surgeon will select the right chin implant for your face. If there doesn’t happen to be an implant that precisely suits your features, he or she will have one custom made.


In the surgery, which usually takes less than an hour, the surgeon makes an incision under your chin, creates a pocket on the bone and inserts the implant in. Five to six days later, you can have your sutures removed. There may be swelling and bruising around the chin and neck, which will last a week to ten days. During this time, there may also be some stiffness when smiling or talking, but this also passes. You should take oral antibiotics both before and after the procedure to help protect you from infection. Your surgeon will prescribe them.
