Enhance Your Natural Appearance with a Chin Reduction
Whether it is a medical requirement or a lifestyle choice, chin reduction surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures globally. If an individual tends to have difficulties with their appearance, one’s doctor may recommend a genioplasty.
The best candidates for chin reduction surgery are those with prominent chins who wish to reduce their size. Patients who have weak or sagging muscles can also benefit from this procedure as it can improve their jawline contour. It may be performed alone or in conjunction with other facial plastic surgeries like rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), a facelift, or facial fillers.
Many people are afraid that chin reduction will not last long and require further surgeries to maintain an attractive appearance. We can assure you that our offices will provide you with the appearance you seek, without the need for touch-ups.
During this procedure, the doctor removes fat and skin from the jawline area to reduce the size of the chin. The whole surgery takes about one hour, and patients can resume their normal activities after the procedure. Since there is no incision, there will be only small bruises near the ears during the recovery period that disappear in one or two weeks, whereas an individual will not be able to do any strenuous physical activity.
The results of this procedure are relatively fast. Though chin reduction surgery is not without its drawbacks and potential side effects. Injury to surrounding tissues, including nerves, arteries, salivary glands, and muscles, may occur. As with any surgical procedure, infection, scarring, changes in sensation, or permanent numbness are not uncommon.
What Do Chin Reductions Do?
The procedure has been around for several decades now and is one of the world’s most popular plastic surgery procedures. People who undergo this procedure often do so because they feel it will improve their appearance and self-esteem. Chin reduction involves cutting excess tissue from the chin and repositioning the skin to give it a more pronounced shape. The chin is reduced in size, while the cheeks are made to appear fuller. Chin reduction can be combined with other facial procedures such as cheek augmentation and upper lip implants to achieve a more dramatic result.
Getting A Reliable Facial Surgeon
The most important thing you can do is find a reliable plastic surgeon. Choose someone who has done at least ten operations and has a reputation as a master of his trade. Ensure that they are a facial plastic surgeon with a medical specialty devoted to reducing the size of other people’s chins.
