We help to achieve a harmonious image by adjusting the overall balance of the face.
This surgical procedure aims to reduce the size of a prominent chin or jawline. Many people perceive the ideal facial shape to incorporate balanced proportions, so for some people a large chin can imbalance the profile. Chin reduction can also alter the position of the chin, moving it forward or backward to create a more pleasing side profile.
Chin Reduction can benefit people:
1. With a broad chin
2. With a protruding or recessed chin
3. With minor asymmetry
4. With a slightly long chin
* Please be aware that all facial bone contouring surgeries are done using oral-incisions under general anesthesia. After a careful CT scan, the doctor will be able to diagnose your condition better and advise you on the most suitable surgical method for you.
Duration: 1 Hour
Incision: Intra Oral
Stitch removal: 7 – 10 days after the procedure
Recovery period: 7-10 days
Chin Reduction: By T-Osteotomy procedure
Balance between the chin and the lower face is essential to obtain an aesthetically pleasing face and the T-Osteotomy procedure allows the chin to be moved forward or backward to create a better profile. An incision is made inside the mouth along the lower gum line first, then the tip of the chin is resected with one horizontal and two vertical cuts that together resemble a T-shape. The central bone fragment is removed, and the remaining bones are fixed together using a titanium plate and screws, or dis-solvable materials, before the lower jawline is trimmed to create a smooth line. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with a mandibular angle resection.
Chin Reduction: By Direct Trimming
Direct trimming (or the shaving method) is for those people who only require a reduction in chin size as opposed to moving the chin to a different position. This method can reduce both the width and length of the chin effectively and safely and is also effective to correct minor asymmetry of the chin.
