Chin Advancement

The position and shape of the chin has a tremendous influence on the shape and perception of one’s face. This is most evident when the chin is small or recessed. This makes the face overall appear smaller with the neck looking short and full, the jaw line ill-defined, and the nose may even seem large. Changing the position of the chin (i.e., bringing it forward) has one of the most dramatic effects of all of the facial procedures.

The chin may be brought forward by one of two techniques;

  1. add a synthetic implant to the bone (chin implant)
  2. bring the chin bone forward

Each technique has its advantages and indications which differ for each patient. As a general guideline, chin implants are used when small amounts of chin advancement are needed or when the line of chin advancement needed goes beyond the chin area. There are a large number of styles and sizes of chin implants today and this allows a great number of changes to be made. When the amount of chin advancement needed is significant, it is usually better to move the chin bone forward.

Chin Advancement procedure –  Aesthetic Chin Advancement typically is performed to add size and contour to a receding chin.  The patient usually has a normal bite, or dental occlusion, which will not be affected by chin augmentation.  The extent of the procedure depends on what changes are desired and what the surgeon deems appropriate.

There are two basic approaches to Chin Advancement.  In some cases, it may be best to move the chin bone.  In this technique, the surgeon makes an incision inside the mouth to gain access to the chin bone.  Using a sawing instrument or chisel, the surgeon makes a horizontal cut through the bone.

The lower portion of the separated bone is moved forward and wired in position.  The incision in the mouth is closed with sutures and an external pressure dressing is generally placed over the chin.

Since surgery is performed through an internal incision, the patient has no visible scarring.


Chin Advancement recovery

After surgery, there is some soreness and discomfort which is easily controlled by medication.  The surgeon may advise a liquid diet for a day or two following surgery.

The patient is generally up and about the same day as surgery and back to work and normal activities within a week of surgery.
