Real beauty depends far more on a graceful balance of all your features than on the shape of any one feature alone. For example, a perfect nose can appear too large if the chin is excessively small. At the same time, an overly large chin can spoil the harmony of otherwise attractive features.
Chin remodeling, whether it takes the form of reduction or augmentation, can help bring all your features into better balance.
A central consideration in deciding whether chin remodeling is appropriate is whether dental occlusion (the way your teeth meet) is correct. If it is not, orthognatic surgery supported by orthodontic preparation may be needed. This process can take as much as two years.
In most cases, however, dental occlusion is satisfactory and the appearance of the chin can be dealt with by remodeling alone.
At your consultation, your surgeon will take a general medical history and ask you about your goals for your procedure. He will also describe the various options available, and help you determine which will be right for you.
When using an implant for chin augmentation, our practice typically uses Medpor material for reasons that will be discussed in more detail at your consultation. If you'd like to know more about Medpor products, please visit their website at www.porex.com.
Both chin reduction and chin augmentation are usually performed under general anaesthesia. Typically they are done as day cases.
Both procedures may be performed either through an incision inside the mouth or one placed under the chin. If the procedure is being done at the same time as a face lift or neck lift, the incision will most likely be placed under the chin and also used as access for the neck rejuvenation.
In the case of chin augmentation, an implant may be used or the bone may be reshaped.
If your surgery was done under a general anaesthetic, you will need to arrange for an adult to accompany you home and stay with you through the first night.
