Chin surgery can help improve and correct chin or jaw lines that seem either too pronounced or not visible enough, restoring balance to your face—and helping you see a better you in the mirror.
Types of chin surgery include chin implants, jaw implants, and chin augmentation.
For chins that are too pronounced, a surgeon can reduce the feature by gently shaving down the bone.
Chin implants can be used to improve faces with weak, recessed, or receding chins, and may also help correct a drooping neckline. Jaw implants can restore balance and symmetry to the face, creating a strong jaw line in men or a softer one in women. You might be a good candidate for chin surgery if you have a receding chin, a jutting or recessed chin, weak or heavy jaw lines, “jowling” or drooped neckline, and/or a profile imbalance between the nose and the chin.
What to Expect
During your chin surgery, your plastic surgeon will make incisions along the lower lip crease inside the mouth and then either place an implant or shave down the chin.
Then the incisions are closed up using stitches that dissolve on their own over time.
This minimally invasive procedure can last anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, and you can return home immediately after the surgery.
While recovery from chin surgery is usually relatively quick, your mouth and jaw will be sore for two to three days after the surgery, and some patients may experience swelling for one or two weeks.
People have reported the following benefits:
- Improved chin and jaw lines that feel natural to your face
- Overall symmetry and balance in the face
- Raised and tightened neck skin
- Boosted confidence and self-esteem with an enhanced appearance
- Long-lasting results
