Sutures after chin implant
The deep sutures will dissolve over several weeks. The surface (skin) sutures typically are removed in 7-10 days. Sometimes, a fast absorbing suture might be used that needs not be removed but dissolves on its own.

Recovery from Chin Implant
Sutures generally should not be left more than 7 days. With chin implants, deeper sutures under the skin do most of the work, and the fine skin sutures need not be left long.
How long the stitches stay in for Chin augmentation?
There is a combination of dissolvable and permanent sutures are used when a chin augmentation is performed. The chin incision sutures are removed at 5 days after the surgery.
