Chin Reduction Surgery
In preparation for chin reduction surgery, the patient will want to avoid aspirin as well as any aspirin-containing medications. In addition, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs should be discontinued for at least one week prior to the surgery. These medications thin the blood, can prevent normal blood clotting, and introduce an increased risk of bleeding and bruising.
Same as chin augmentation surgery, chin reduction surgery begins with the surgeon making an incision inside the mouth (near the lower lip) or under the chin. Using specialized instruments, the surgeon detaches the bone at the tip of the chin and then reshapes and removes the excess bone to properly proportion the contour. The tip is then repositioned with the remaining section of chin and held together using wires and plates. The incisions are sutured to complete the procedure.
Advantages and Disadvantages of chin reduction surgery
All surgeries have inherent risks. The chin reduction surgery is associated with the following risks:
- The patient may experience swelling for several weeks or months while the bone heals.
- Infection is a less common risk to weigh when considering chin plastic surgery.
- Small nerve damage, which can cause the patient to experience numbness in the lower lip and chin.
- Adverse reactions to anesthesia, which can affect a patient’s respiratory system.
Though the risks may be significant and important to consider, the likelihood of complications is greatly reduced when chin reduction surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon. In careful, skillful hands, a chin reduction surgery can improve the appearance of your chin and enhance your self-esteem. A chin reduction can create a more harmonious balance between your nose and your chin as it creates a more equal proportion between the two. Performed in conjunction with a facelift and rhinoplasty, a chin reduction procedure can be the final element in creating an elegant, beautiful appearance.
