Chin reduction surgery removes excess bone to help improve the appearance of a chin that protrudes too far for your face shape. Typically, this type of surgery, also known as Mentoplasty, is done by an oral surgeon to correct dental problems.
If you think you need to have a chin reduction, there may be other options that will achieve your desired result without removing bone.
Do You Really Need a Chin Reduction?
If the problem is not the chin itself, but rather the extra skin that has collected under the chin, a facelift may be recommended instead. Similarly, liposuction can be used to remove extra fat and eliminate a double chin. In the hands of a skilled surgeon, this can improve the overall appearance of your chin.
The only way to know exactly what you need for your particular face and chin is to consult with a skilled surgeon. To schedule your personal consultation to discuss chin reduction options with Dr. Siegel, call 1-832-358-3223.
