What exactly is a Chin surgery?
Chin surgery, also known as Mentoplasty and Genioplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin, either by enhancement with an implant or reduction of the bone. Faces come in all different shapes and sizes, but some patients may feel that their chin is not in balance with the rest of their facial features.
Whether the patient feels their chin protrudes too far or seeks more definition around the jaw line, Chin Augmentation or Reduction could be performed to provide more self-confidence and aesthetic enhancement to the facial structure.
Dr. Zacharia may suggest chin surgery as a supplement to nose reshaping (Rhinoplasty), because a small chin can make the nose appear larger. Chin surgery may be recommended as part of a combination treatment plan for a facelift.
