Chin Surgery Case Studies and Patient Success Stories
For some, the reality of dealing with an abnormally large or unusually small chin can be quite troublesome. Thankfully, chin surgery, also known as genioplasty, is a procedure commonly performed by Dr Hunt. Genioplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin in some way. Dr Jeremy Hunt has performed procedures to move the chin forward (Chin Augmentation), move it backwards (Chin reduction) and move it up or down and to reshape or realign the chin. Here are some patient case study receding chin results.
Patient Case Study 1 – Advanced Genioplasty for Receding Chin Augmentation
This patient above had advanced genioplasty to move the chin forward 10mm, giving it a more prominent, stronger appearance. Dr Hunt then performed submental liposuction which is liposuction of the chin and neck area to remove excess fat and sculpt.
Patient Case Study 2 – Receding Chin Surgery Implant
In cases where the bone is not favourable for use, a chin implant is an alternative option. If less significant changes are required, the use of injectable dermal fillers can achieve a mild increase in the prominence of the chin.
The Relationship Between the Chin and your Nose
If you think of the nose as the most prominent feature of the middle third of the face, then the chin prominence is the strongest feature of the lower third of the face. Often an adjustment in the nose size, shape and length is balanced with an adjustment of the chin size and shape. For this reason, chin surgery often compliments a rhinoplasty beautifully and are sometimes performed together.
Recovery after Chin Surgery
The recovery period is associated with some discomfort and downtime is required. Many resume normal activities, such as work and social outings, in a week or two.
