What is Chin Surgery?
Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical operation that reshapes the chin, either by implant enhancement or bone reduction surgery.
Plastic surgery and other minor office operations can often be performed on the lower jaw line and chin area to improve facial proportions and boost self-esteem and confidence. Board-certified plastic surgeons routinely recommend these procedures to restore the harmony of facial features and the balance of the chin/jaw/cheek/forehead.
An operation called a mentoplasty or genioplasty can sometimes shift bone from the jaw forward. Shaped silicone implants can also be used to give the chin additional projection. Bone can also be removed to reduce an abnormally protruding chin. Additionally, changes to the upper and/or lower jaw may be recommended for better chewing dynamics and occlusion (the way the teeth fit together). These processes can be basic or extremely complex.
The size of the chin can accentuate or diminish the perceived size of the nose; hence a plastic surgeon may prescribe chin surgery or procedures to a patient having rhinoplasty in order to attain better facial proportions.
Additionally, with recent technological advancements, your plastic surgeon may suggest off-label use of gel filler material as an alternative for providing chin augmentation that may last for a shorter period of time after obtaining informed consent after reviewing all options, risks, and benefits.
Chin operations come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Chin surgery can be used to change or improve the appearance of the chin. Chin augmentation and chin reduction are the two most common types of chin surgery.
Chin augmentation surgery is commonly used to improve the appearance of a chin that is underdeveloped. This is usually performed by placing an implant directly into the bone. Either inside the lips or behind the chin skin, a tiny incision is made. Sutures are used to close the incision once the implant has been implanted. Mild edema may develop for a few days, but most patients can return to work within a week.
Chin reduction surgery
Chin reduction surgery, often known as chin shaving surgery, is used to improve the appearance of a prominent or protruding chin. The surgery is usually done as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Either inside the lips or behind the chin skin, a tiny incision is made. The chin is molded to the correct form after excess bone is removed. Sutures are used to seal the incision.
Chin augmentations are a one-of-a-kind operation that gives patients a new sense of self-assurance and a profile that suits them. It alleviates fears and other problems associated with chin misalignment. Patients claim the augmentation procedure has given them a better profile and confidence, as well as:
- The jawline takes on a beautiful triangular contour.
- Adds dimension to the chin for a more attractive appearance.
- The appearance of jowls or a double chin is reduced.
- Brings the nose and chin into harmony.
- Strengthens the chin, which is underdeveloped.
Chin surgery is a highly personalized technique that gives patients who want to modify their appearance and restore confidence life-changing results. Patients in good health who desire to change their chin’s shape, size, or declination are ideal candidates. Patients must also meet the following criteria:
- Have realistic expectations
- Unhappy with the chin’s overall appearance

Our surgeons and staff will provide you with specific instructions based on your needs and medical history. To avoid difficulties, you will be asked to cease smoking before to surgery. To encourage healthy circulation, certain blood-thinning drugs may need to be stopped. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medicines should be avoided because they can induce bleeding. To prevent infection, wash your hair properly the day before your procedure. Get a good night’s sleep and go to bed a little earlier than normal.
We want you to be as relaxed as possible during your procedure. As a result, you’ll be able to relax comfortably to get the most out of your time. Chin augmentation is a personalized technique in which you can achieve a new facial feature with implants or by surgically extending the bone. We carefully conceal an incision along the interior of the mouth, just behind the lower lip or beneath the chin, when installing the chin implant. The implants are then placed in a pocket formed over the chin.
Patients who want their chin angles to improve will have a different experience. The chin bone is surgically detached, shifted forward, and reattached. In some circumstances, bone is molded and connected from other regions to generate a prominent chin. To lessen the appearance of a contoured lower jaw, certain people may benefit from chin reduction surgery. A surgical device is used to reduce or reshape the bone during this surgery.
The incision will be closed with sutures, skin adhesives, or tapes once the chin has been relocated and changed to the desired measurements. Incisions made on the outside of the mouth will leave minor scarring, while those made on the inside of the mouth will be totally hidden.
Make sure you have someone to drive you home and look after you the first day following surgery. All exterior incisions will be covered with bandages after chin surgery. The average recuperation time is 7 to 10 days. We urge patients to avoid intense activities and excessive sun exposure during this time. Swelling that is mild can last up to three weeks. If necessary, prescribed medication might be used to alleviate post-surgery discomfort.
To assist prevent swelling and allow your wounds to heal, you will need to sleep on your back with your head raised for 1-2 weeks after surgery. When the edema has subsided, the results may take up to 1-3 days to appear.
