The chin can be modified in several ways to increase or decrease its size.
To decrease the size of the chin, the chin button can be repositioned to reduce the size of the chin. A wedge of bone may also be removed from the chin to improve its appearance. To increase the size of the chin, the chin button may be moved forward to a more natural position. A chin implant may also be used to augment the chin without performing any bony surgery.
Corrective jaw surgery can be performed in the operating room at the hospital, or at our state of the art surgical facility. In most cases, patients may return home the same day or after an overnight stay at the hospital.
