The chin plays an important role in the overall balanced appearance of the face, as it directly relates to significant adjacent structures such as the lips, teeth, and nose.
Even though every chin is unique in its own way, there are 3 major types of chin based on its underlying anatomy and soft tissue distribution.
However, when the size or positioning of a chin itself is out of normal rage, surgical intervention may be necessary. Some of the most commonly observed chin pathologies are micrognathia, defining an unusually small chin and retrognathia for when a chin is very prominent. If carefully evaluated and planned, aesthetic correction of a chin deformity can provide significant improvement to the overall balance and proportion of the face.
What are the most frequent features people don’t like about their chin?
Deformities of the chin and lower face may be related to either bony abnormalities or soft tissue malposition.
Due to significant weight fluctuations and normal aging process, skin of the face and neck tends to gradually lose elasticity. This may create an impression of a double chin, which becomes even more visible when an unwanted fat layer under the lower jaw is present. Moreover, the chin itself may start seeming droopy, as the soft tissue from the tip of the mandible descends under its lower contour. This process is defined as chin ptosis (sagging) and can be fixed by surgically tightening the saggy tissues.
When it comes to structural peculiarities, the chin should be examined in all three planes: horizontal, vertical and transverse. The horizontal and vertical dimensions can each be deficient, normal, or excessive. Simple deformities such as mild horizontal chin deficiency are easily corrected using either an implant or bone advancement. However, more complicated deformities may require a more complex surgical approach.
What procedures might be helpful?
There are several aesthetic procedures which may help to restore balance and structural symmetry of the face. The procedure chosen to correct a specific aesthetic issue is based on the type and extent of the deformity.
Preparation for chin surgery
As with all aesthetic procedures, thorough preoperative analysis is essential. Specifically, the chin should be evaluated by a medical professional as it relates to other skeletal and soft tissue structures, including the lips, teeth, nose, and soft tissues of the neck. In addition to that, every plastic surgery requires some preparation in order to avoid any perioperative and postoperative complications
It is highly recommended to avoid using tobacco products and consuming alcohol at least 2 months before the procedure in order not to compromise the immune system.
Taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and other blood thinners should be avoided at least 10 days before the procedure, unless the operating doctor has advised differently.
Consult a plastic surgeon about your allergies, previous surgeries and daily medications. If you have any pre-existing conditions that require daily usage of drugs, your operating doctor should be informed about it. Follow your specific pre-operative instructions as they may vary depending on your personal medical history.
Recovery after different chin surgeries
What are the possible risks?
Even though a great majority of aesthetic procedures are considered to be very safe, complications associated with chin augmentation with implants nevertheless may appear.
