A Chin That’s Just Right

Whether your chin is too small, prominent, receding, or protruding, Sykes Facial Plastic Surgery has a fix that can give it a more sculpted contour that looks proportional. Chin augmentation surgery can add definition to the jawline using a customized implant. A chin reduction, on the other hand, can soften the chin and jawline to create a shapelier facial contour.

All About Chin Surgery

What Is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation can make your face more harmonious by adding definition or projection to the chin and jawline using a chin implant. If you have a small, underprojected, recessed, or asymmetrical chin bone that causes a double chin or weak jawline, chin augmentation can enhance your jaw, chin, and neck contours for a more svelte appearance.

What Is Chin Reduction?

If you have a large, prominent, over-projecting, or asymmetrical chin that looks disproportionate to your facial features, a chin reduction can surgically shape or reposition the chin to give you a more shapely definition to your lower face. Dr. Sykes can sculpt your chin to give it a softer contour that can improve the balance between your facial features.

What Is the Procedure Like?

Dr. Sykes will perform your procedure under anesthesia or sedation to ensure you are comfortable. Chin reduction surgery is performed through an incision along the gum line, where he can reshape the bone and tissue to be less pronounced. 

For chin augmentation, he makes the incision underneath your chin in the natural crease, through which he can add your customized chin implant. 

In both procedures, he closes the incisions with sutures, and because the incisions are hidden, there is minimal potential for visible scarring. Regardless of which procedure you are undergoing, Dr. Sykes employs the highest level of precision and artistry to give you the ideal results.

The Recovery Process

After your chin augmentation or reduction procedure, you can expect some bruising and swelling that will gradually subside over the course of a couple of weeks. Dr. Sykes gives each patient thorough post-operative instructions to maximize healing. This will likely include eating a soft diet temporarily and avoiding strenuous exercise to prevent irritation to the area. Most patients are able to return to their routine, including work, after a couple of weeks of rest and recovery.
