Chin Implant in Charlotte, NC
The balance of your features plays a key role in your appearance. Having a bone structure that leaves your chin underdeveloped in relation to the rest of the face can make it seem like something just isn’t quite right. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Klein, and board-eligible plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Kochuba, offer chin implant surgery for men and women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina.
What is a Chin Implant?
A chin implant is a cosmetic medical device. It is comprised of a silicone shell, filled with a safe silicone gel. Implants are available in a variety of sizes and styles to fit the unique anatomy of each patient. Chin augmentation with an implant will optimize the chin where the natural anatomy is poorly defined. The surgery is quick and easy but produces incredible results.
Benefits of a Chin Implant
There are some dermal fillers that can be used for chin augmentation, but this approach is not suited for those who need a moderate to advanced degree of volume added to their chin area. Chin implants allow you to have a permanent solution that affects your appearance from the front as well as your profile.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Chin Implant?
Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba will examine your chin and profile to determine if chin augmentation is a good approach to improving your appearance. Nearly every patient who has an under-defined chin is a good candidate for an implant. If you have a history of allergies to the materials used for the implants, you may need to consider dermal fillers instead.
What Do I Need to Do Before a Chin Implant?
Understanding when a chin implant is the right approach takes skill, experience, and expertise. Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba are highly experienced plastic surgeons who recognize which features deserve attention, so we recommend that you schedule a personal consultation with them to find out if chin augmentation is right for you.
How Long Does It Take to Perform a Chin Implant?
Chin augmentation takes 30 to 60 minutes. The procedure is performed in our office with local anesthesia, light sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the nature of the surgery.
What to Expect After a Chin Implant
Bruising and swelling are the most common symptoms after chin implant surgery. You will need to limit your activities for two weeks. In some cases, incisions are made inside the mouth, so we may advise you about dietary changes during the healing period.
Will I Have Scars After Getting a Chin Implant?
Any type of surgery causes scarring as the tissues heal. Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba make the necessary incisions in areas where the scars are not noticeable, such as inside your mouth or under your chin.
When Will I See the Results?
You will see results right after the surgery, but give the swelling time to subside before expecting to see the final outcome of your chin augmentation.
How Long Will the Results of a Chin Implant Last?
Chin implants are designed to be permanent, but they can also be removed should you so desire.
How Much Does a Chin Implant Cost in Charlotte?
Because medical insurance does not cover the cost of chin augmentation, we provide an accurate cost after your consultation with Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba. We help make the surgery affordable by accepting several convenient forms of payment, including cash, check, major credit card and CareCredit® financing.
