Chin Surgery

What is chin surgery?

Chin surgery will reshape the chin with enhancement or reduction to achieve the facial proportion you are looking for.

Types of chin surgery:

Chin implant
Chin implants are available in a variety of sizes to help you achieve your desired outcome. The surgery only takes around thirty minutes to an hour, and can be combined with other age defying procedures.

Chin reduction
A chin reduction involves the shaving or removal of chin bone. If removed the bone will need to be secured with plates and screws. This procedure allows soft tissue to remain attached to the surface of the chin, reducing scarring.

Is chin surgery for you?

Before choosing to have chin surgery, you need to consider:

  • Do you smoke?
  • What prescriptions are you taking?
  • Do you want to modify your appearance?
  • Can you take time off?

You should always speak to your surgeon about all of these things in the consultation, before going ahead with the surgery.
