Chin surgery

Forehead, lips and chin should form a vertical line. If this is not the case, face harmony is disturbed. The chin holds a central place of all contours of our face, and if it is too big or too small, it disturbs the harmony, and has negative effects on face profile.

How is chin surgery done?

Surgical intervention is done under the chin or trough oral cavity. Such approach enables easier access to the lower jaw bone. With poorly defined chin, we place an implant of wanted size or we can correct the jaw bone. If bone correction is done, jaw bone has to be divided horizontally, and lower part of the bone must be moved forward and fixed in a new position using metal plates or wire. In case of a too big chin, the surgeon must trim the chin bone or horizontally divide the jawbone and move the lower part backwards. Incisions are sutured with fine sutures, and the wound is closed by a waterproof band. It lasts 6 - 8 weeks for the bone to heal completely.

After the surgery there will be bruising, swelling, discomfort in the chin area, but it will all disappear in a few days. You should talk and laugh only when necessary, and after we remove the sutures you must brush your teeth very carefully and gently. The sutures are removed after 1 - 2 weeks.
