As with all elective surgery, good health and realistic expectations are prerequisites. Understanding all aspects of the surgery is important, as is understanding of the different types of chin surgery procedures available.
A pleasing, balanced profile can be achieved by inserting an implant or moving the bone forward to build up a receding chin, or by reducing a jutting or too prominent chin.
Another possibility for improvement through chin surgery is submental liposuction,in which excess fatty tissue is removed to redefine the chin or neckline.
When there is a contributing problem of dental malocclusions or birth defects in the structure of the jaw itself, surgery of the jaw can improve the form and function of the lower face and greatly enhance appearance.
