Chin Surgery Scottsdale
Chin Surgery (Mentoplasty) is a surgical procedure that is performed to alter the shape and appearance of the chin either through reducing it or enhancing it through the use of a chin implant. Chin surgery can give the chin and jawline a more prominent and defined appearance or reduce the size of a chin that protrudes too much. Both chin reduction and chin augmentation help to bring balance to the facial proportions. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Lille offer chin surgery for patients in Scottsdale.
What is Chin Surgery?
Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone. Many times, a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Chin surgery helps provide a harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.
Recovering from Chin Surgery
Patients can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, and a feeling of tightness around the area following their chin surgery. Pain can be managed with medication and should only last for around three to five days. Patients will need to wear a compression garment during the recovery period for around two weeks. It will take around 6 weeks to recover from chin surgery. Follow-visits can be scheduled to make sure you are healing properly.
