Chin reduction surgery is designed to provide a person with a balanced, more pleasingly contoured face. The procedure is not complicated and does not require a significant period of time to recoup from the surgery.

The costs associated with chin reduction surgery are not covered by medical insurance. The process can be quite costly in the United States. There are safe, cost-effective alternatives abroad that can be found at qunomedical.com.

How Does a Chin Reduction Procedure Work?

Through the incision, the surgeon utilizes specialized instruments to remove the bone located at the tip of the chin. Once removed, the surgeon reshapes the bone into a more pleasing shape. The reshaped bone is then replaced through the use of surgical wires and plates. The incision is closed with sutures, completing the surgery. Chin reduction surgery can be part of a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation process. This might include rhinoplasty or a facelift.

Risks associated with the process are minimal and include the possibility of infection. That risk is reduced with the proactive use of antibiotics. A person is placed under a general anesthesia for the surgery, which itself always includes some slight risk. The recovery process following surgery normally is without complications. A patient experiences some swelling during the week or two following surgery. However, swelling normally abates apace within a few days of surgery. Some temporary numbness may occur in the lower lip following surgery if the it is done from inside the mouth. Any scar under the chin will not be particularly visible and dissipates significantly within a year, as a general rule.

Generally speaking, a person is able to return to most routine activities following chin reduction surgery. A patient may want to avoid certain foods and beverages a day or two following surgery if they cause any discomfort. If dissolvable sutures are used, they will be gone within a couple of weeks. Otherwise, they will be removed during a follow-up visit about a week to 10 days after surgery.
