A lot of people come to our plastic surgeon and say that they would like to have a nose job. They feel that they need a nose job because their nose appears too large for their face. While in some cases this may be true, for many people the problem is not that their nose is too big; instead, the problem is that their chin is too small. The chin serves to balance out a person’s profile. If a person has a small chin or if it is difficult to distinguish where their chin ends and their neck starts, they will have a very weak profile and it will look like their nose is exceptionally prominent. On the other hand, if someone’s chin is too prominent, it can make their facial features appear unusually rigid or too masculine. This is why many people decide to have chin surgery.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Chin Surgery?
A good candidate for chin implants is a person who has a weak chin or feels that their chin and their nose are not well-balanced. A good candidate for a chin implant is someone who does not have an abnormal dental bite that in the future will require them to get a jaw realignment. Additionally, a good candidate is someone who thoroughly understands the details of the procedure.
Chin augmentation has helped thousands of people get the strong profile they want. It is crucial to consult with our plastic surgeon prior to deciding on having a chin implant or not. He will look at your face, review your medical history and help you to make a decision that is best for you.
A good candidate for chin reduction would be someone whose chin sticks out too far on their face. If someone’s chin is significantly larger than the rest of their facial features, our plastic surgeon can simply reduce the chin bone to a more proportionate size.
If you decide to go through with chin surgery, our doctor will likely advise you to prepare yourself for the procedure by not eating or drinking anything after 10 PM. You will likely be advised to avoid medication, unless it’s prescribed by our doctor. You will be advised to avoid shaving or applying moisturizer lotion to the area before the procedure. It’s best to wear little or no makeup to the hospital.
