What is Chin & Jawline Reduction?

If your chin and jawline are out of proportion with the rest of your facial features, or you would like to achieve a softer, more shapely jawline, Dr. Sykes’ chin and jawline reduction surgery can reshape the lower facial structure to improve the following:

  • Prominent or over-projecting chin
  • Heavy, square jawline
  • Lack of definition
  • Asymmetrical jawline

Benefits of Chin & Jawline Reduction

  • Improve your facial balance
  • Create a more sculpted chin and jawline
  • Reduce chin prominence
  • Achieve a more feminine contour
  • Boost your self-confidence
  • Natural-looking results

Am I a Candidate?

Patients who feel self-conscious about their jaw and chin structure may be ideal candidates for our jawline and chin reduction in Beverly Hills. The best candidates want a more sculpted, symmetrical, balanced chin and jawline definition. Additional qualifications include:

  • Being in good physical health
  • Nonsmokers
  • Having realistic expectations about what the procedure achieves

What is the Procedure Like?

Surgical reshaping of the chin and jawline happens under general anesthesia to ensure total comfort throughout the procedure. Dr. Sykes typically makes an incision within the mouth, which prevents visible scarring. The jawbone is reshaped through an incision between the cheek and the gum, creating a more refined, elegant, and feminine structure. 

The chin is addressed through an incision along the gumline toward the front of the mouth, through which Dr. Sykes reshapes the tissue and bone to create a softer, less pronounced chin shape. The incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures, and surgical bandages protect the area, minimizing swelling and aiding the healing process.

The Recovery Process

After surgery, bruising and swelling are expected; they typically peak after two days and will subside within the first two weeks. Dr. Sykes will give you a detailed recovery plan with aftercare instructions that will support your healing progress. Most patients can return to work and daily activities after one week; however, you must avoid strenuous exercise and temporarily eat a soft diet to reduce irritation to the area.

When Can I See the Results?

The results of chin and jawline reduction become visible immediately; however, it may take some time for the residual swelling to subside before you can see the final results. Dr. Sykes’ patients love their new chin and jawline definition, and the softer, more feminine facial harmony helps boost confidence to a new level. Most importantly, Dr. Sykes achieves natural-looking results that enhance your appearance while still maintaining the features that are uniquely you.
