Many people suffer from a retruded chin, also called weak or recessive chin. If you look at your face and notice that the chin is set way behind than the upper jaw, then you suffer from this condition. The thrust of your chin may just not be sufficient enough to make your jaw look strong and dignified.
Your plastic surgeon may recommend a variety of procedures to take care of this. Jawline contouring surgery and chin implants tend to be the most popular. At the time of your initial consultation, your surgeon will prepare a custom surgical plan for your chin enhancement.
Surgery Options for Recessed Chin
Your facial balance may be marred by a receding chin. This is especially true for the lower facial area. Mouth exercises may help you to some extent, but they are not enough for dramatic improvements. The soft tissues and bones in your chin and jawline cannot be altered greatly by just exercising them.
This is why many plastic surgeons recommend obtaining a chin implant or chin augmentation surgery. You may ask your surgeon to perform sliding chin genioplasty and other elaborate procedures if a greater degree of augmentation is needed.
Chin implants are the best and easiest way to improve the overall appearance of your lower jawline and chin. Your plastic surgeon may make a tiny incision through the mouth and insert the implant. This biocompatible implant will be positioned on the lower jaw and sutured in place.
Double chin reduction
The plastic surgeon may also recommend liposuction or Kybella injections if you have a double chin because of submental fat deposits. Double chin reduction procedure can help you attain a stronger jawline.
This invasive cosmetic procedure is performed on people who have severely recessed chins and require extensive augmentation. Recovery generally takes longer than other procedures since the procedure is elaborate.
