Are You Self-Conscious About a Chin That’s Too Big or Too Small?
Boost Your Self-Image with Chin Surgery at LPS!
Chin surgery, or genioplasty, is a surgical procedure that aims to bring a better overall facial balance. Whether you’re bothered by a chin that’s too prominent or would like to bolster an overly weak chin, you might be able to benefit from the procedure. Although chin surgery is primarily done for aesthetic reasons, the procedure can also be used for reconstructive purposes after trauma or injury.
How Does Chin Surgery Work?
There are two primary types of chin surgery – enhancement with implants or reduction which involves reshaping the bone. Both procedures are typically done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia to keep you comfortable throughout. The board-certified surgeons at Longwood Plastic Surgery use a combination of surgical skill and artistry to produce results that are both dramatic and natural-looking.

Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Surgery?
Chin surgery may be worth considering if you’re unhappy with contours that are either too small or too large for your overall facial appearance. The ideal candidate for surgical procedures is an otherwise healthy, non-smoking adult. Patients should go into the procedure with realistic expectations about the results they’ll be able to achieve.
Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportions, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Longwood Plastic Surgery prides itself on providing individualized patient care with custom procedures based on your specific concerns and goals.
What Results Will I See?*
You should be able to see visible changes to your facial contours immediately following surgery. Gradual improvement will continue to occur as any post-operative swelling subsides over the course of several months. Chin surgery is typically a one-time treatment option that produces instant, yet long-lasting results for a lifetime to come.
The great thing about chin surgery is the ability to achieve results that are as subtle or dramatic as you’d like. Your board-certified surgeon will work with you to create a more balanced facial appearance with natural-looking outcomes.
What is the Recovery Like?*
The amount of recovery you’ll need after chin surgery depends on the type and extent of your procedure. Chin augmentation with fat transfer or implants involve relatively little recovery, and most patients are back to normal activities within 1-week. Chin reduction procedures have slightly more downtime of about 2-weeks. In either case, strenuous activities should be avoided for 4-6 weeks post-surgery.
Your skilled surgeon will walk you through every aspect of your upcoming procedure in-depth at the time of your initial consultation.
