Also known as Mentoplasty, chin surgery consists in the reshaping of the chin by performing a reduction surgery of the jaw bone or enhancing its shape using implants. The former is implemented when the chin is too prominent or when there’s a contributing problem of birth defects in the structure of the jaw. The latter is used when trying to enhance a receding chin; the bone may also be moved forward to improve the person’s facial outline.
Your chin is one of the most prominent aspects of your face, enhancing or deteriorating your overall facial contours with great ease. The three milestones of the face are the chin, nose, and cheek areas. When one of these three is out of proportion, the face may appear unbalanced.
Despite the fact that it is often overlooked, a defined chin can have great influence in the way a person’s profile looks. Most people tend to focus on their noses when they look in the mirror, not noticing the fact that their chin greatly affects the general appearance of their faces. Chin surgery helps to harmonize the different aspects of your face and adds balance to your facial outline, making you feel better about the way you look and feel about yourself.
This surgery consists of two main techniques: chin implants and chin reduction through liposuction. The technique your surgeon will use depends on your individual case and the results you are looking for.
