Chin Correction

Path to a harmonious face

What is a chin correction?

Chin correction involves surgical procedures to either augment or reduce the chin to achieve harmony with other facial features. Whether you have a recessed chin that you want to enhance or an overly prominent chin that you want to reduce, our experienced hands are here to help you.

Chin augmentation

Chin augmentation is performed under general anesthesia or with the assistance of short-term analgosedation. The surgical approach involves making an incision inside the lower lip mucosa, typically 3 to 4 centimeters in length, through which a precisely sized pocket is created for placing a semi-circular silicone implant. Alternatively, the implant can be inserted through a discreet incision under the chin. The size and shape of the implant are meticulously chosen to match the individual facial proportions of each patient, ensuring a natural and harmonious appearance. The procedure leaves no visible scars, allowing for an elegant and discreet chin enhancement.

Chin reduction

Harmony between the forehead, nose, and chin is crucial for a balanced facial appearance. Disproportion, such as an oversized chin, can make the forehead and nose appear smaller, disrupting aesthetic harmony. Chin reduction surgery for both men and women aims to align facial proportions, significantly improving facial profile and enhancing self-confidence.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, with precise incisions made inside the mouth or under the chin. Excess bone is removed, and the chin is shaped to achieve an aesthetically pleasing and harmonious contour.

Recovery after chin correction

The first 3-5 days after the surgery, you may experience discomfort and pain.

It is recommended to consume only liquids and liquid food during the first 2 days of recovery.

During the recovery period, rinsing the oral cavity with hydrogen peroxide solution or another antiseptic solution is recommended, especially after meals.

Expect swelling and bruising in the first 7-10 days. You may experience mild numbness for several months.

You can return to your daily activities within 7 days. More strenuous physical activities and sports are allowed after 3 weeks post-surgery.

Risks after chin correction

The most common risk is numbness of the lower lip, which can last up to a month.
In the first 24 hours, slight bleeding at the incision site is possible.
There is a risk of infection if proper hygiene is not maintained during the postoperative period.
