Chin Surgery

What is Chin Surgery?

Mentoplasty or genioplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone.  We can adjust the chin forward or backward, side to side, shorten or lengthen, and balance asymmetry.

Who is a good candidate for Chin Surgery?

Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend a genioplasty to a patient having a nose operation in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Mentoplasty helps provide a harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.

What can I expect during my  recovery?

Most patients will be able to return to work or resume their normal activities within one week after surgery. You may begin eating a soft food and liquid diet as early as you are comfortable.  However, they must refrain from any strenuous activity and exercises for a few weeks to allow complete healing. Bruising will start to subside within the second week, and may be completely healed in about 10 to 14 days.
