Chin Surgery

Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty or genioplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone.

Who is a good candidate for chin surgery?

Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Chin surgery 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 chin surgery recovery?

Most patients will be able to return to work or resume their normal activities within one week after surgery. 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.
