Genetics and certain other factors can give your chin a soft appearance. This could cause you to feel self-conscious about your appearance or leave you feeling socially awkward.

If you are unhappy with the prominence of your chin or the profile of your face, you should call 801-373-4300 to set up a consultation appointment at Charles V. Pledger, MD’s clinic for cosmetic medicine.

After a quick assessment, Dr. Charles V. Pledger and his associates can help you understand the most applicable methods for accentuating your chin and other facial features.

One possible treatment he might recommend could include installing a small chin implant. This a sterile piece of a special surgical grade plastic that can be inserted beneath the dermal layers in a single outpatient surgery.

The treatment involves making a small incision inside your lower lip. The surrounding tissues will then be gradually stretched to create a small pocket capable of holding the chin implant. This will also reduce any chances of noticeable scarring.

Dr. Charles V. Pledger will provide you with any necessary aftercare instructions which might also include a prescription for anti-inflammatory or other pain medication.

If you live in the Provo, Utah, region and you are interested in accentuating your facial features, you should consider calling 801-373-4300 to schedule a consultation appointment at Charles V. Pledger, MD.
