Chin plastic surgery

The core of chin plastic surgery is the end of the chin. End of the chin is the center of facial outline and it plays important role in harmony of the face. For example, if the chin is biased to one-side, the whole face look crooked. It is also important for the profile of the face as well as front look.
A beautiful chin line from side chin to the root of the ear via the end of the chin is a requisite to be a beauty.

Jaw Square Correction

Operation Process : Detailed Long Curve Resection
If you have well-developed and protruded mandibular angle and have strong appearance and large looking face, you can get a gentle and smooth chin line through long curve incision.

Front Chin

Operation Process : short Chin, Jutting Chin Correction/ Boomerang osteotomy / T osteotomy
It is very important to make an operation standard according to the length of the face. It is recommended to those whose face look long because of long front chin, those who do not have clear look chin or who has a lantern jaw and those who want to have V line by reducing width. When asymmetry of the chin is corrected, it is important to fix a center line.

Before & After

Cautions after Chin Plastic Surgery

  • After the surgery, please wear a resilient mask. We recommend using it immediately when you are discharged from the hospital. But if you are uncomfortable, please use it after 4 days of operation. Please wear it when you live in your everyday life for 8 weeks. Wear it from 3 to 6 months and then you will have a more beautiful line. However, do not use it at bedtime.
  • You should eat soft and light food. Please refrain from hot and spicy foods.
  • After 7 to 8 days after the surgery, you shall start practicing to open your mouth.
  • If you have cheekbone reduction through a mouth incision, please avoid the nose blowing for up to 6 weeks. If there is mucus in your nose, spit it out from your mouth.
