Chin Implants/Reduction

Candidates for Chin Implant/Reduction

A heavy, overly squared or outwardly flaring chin can diminish the more delicate features of the face. If you feel your chin is too prominent or the angles are too severe, Chin Reduction surgery may be able to help.

A chin that is small or poorly shaped can affect the overall look of your face. Chin Implants can strengthen the shape and angles of your face and bring balance to an otherwise weak appearance.

The Procedure

Chin Reduction surgery reduces the size and appearance of the chin, softens a heavy chin line, and narrows the face – giving it a more oval appearance and helping the neck appear longer. Reduction can help better define your facial features; improve the contours and natural angles of your face; and give you a more proportionate, structurally balanced, and softer appearance. Improved proportions can increase your self-confidence and help improve your quality of life. The chin line can be reduced by non-surgical methods, such as Botox injections or by surgical methods – including shaving down the bone or removing a portion of it – or in combination with a Chin Reduction.
