Chin surgery is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin. This can be accomplished in several ways. Dr. Sasson may recommend enhancement with a facial implant or surgical reshaping of the chin bone. The general goal of cosmetic chin surgery is to provide a harmonious balance to your chin and facial features so that you feel better about the way you look. Many times Dr. Sasson 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.
With a short incision under the chin or inside the mouth, Dr. Sasson can place a chin implant directly on the bone. For a chin implant, the incision may be inside your mouth, along the crease that joins your lower lip and gums. An incision just beneath the chin is another alternative that may be recommended.
