Chin Plastic Surgery

CHIN

  • A well-defined chin plays an important role in maintaining facial proportions and balance. The most commonly reported concerns by Men are often related to a receding/weak chin or alternatively a prominent and rather larger than expected chin.
  • Many mistakenly assume problems of the chin can be addressed merely by using an Implant. There are however several underlying soft or hard tissue anomalies contributing to a chin deformity and the management of each varies.

Genioplasty

Is an operation on the chin that uses an osteotomy (cut in the bone) to change the position of the chin in any direction. The chin height, width and shape can be altered using this technique and the fragmented segment can be moved in different direction to achieve the desired shape and size and restore the ideal facial balance and proportions.

 
Chin Implant

This is a surgical procedure where an implant is used to augment a receding chin and improve chin prominence. Appropriately selected implant can additionally enhance the shape and form of the chin. Mr Mattine has extensive experience with different types of implants, including customized patient-specific implants created from high-resolution CT scans and designed individually for each patient.

Mentoplasty

Often patients main concerns are related to a cleft chin, referring the presence of a Y-shaped dimple in the middle. Mentoplasty is a procedure where the underlying soft tissue, particularly muscles are refashioned to obliterate this cleft and improve shape and form of the chin.

 
Chin Reduction

This is particularly applicable to patients with a pointed chin or Witches chin where bony surgery is offered to refashion the contributing deformity and improve chin form and projection.

Facial Fillers

Facial Fillers can be used to enhance facial contour and improve definition of the chin. They are however short lasting and often need to be repeated. They are great in simulating the effects of chin implants before considering the lasting surgical changes of an implant.

 
Liposculpture (Fat grafting)

This is an alternative technique where receding or weak chin can be augmented using patients own fat and has shown to provide reliable and lasting improvement in the patient’s profile.
