When the upper jaw is excessively developed, there is a possibility that the low jaw is relatively underdeveloped, in turn creating a small chin. If there is no evidence of malocclusion, a small chin tip can be corrected with the chin tip surgery.
However, if a patient suffers from malocclusion as well, the two-jaw surgery and orthodontic treatment are required. JW Plastic Surgery Center will give you an impressive face line without a small chin.
It is a surgical procedure to correct the small chin tip when your bite is properly aligned. A surgeon cuts the chin tip then moves the lower portion of separated bone forward and wires in position. By grafting the patient’s bone, it is possible to add more volume to the chip tip and correct it in a good position.
This procedure can be performed without the use of artificial implant material and it is also effective in creating a beautiful neck line while significantly adjusting the position of the chin tip.
There are various types of materials for chin implant and the most common materials are Gore-Tex and silicone. The implant material is used based on patient’s bone shape.
Chin implant is a relatively simple procedure that can be completed within 30 minutes. One or two small incisions (approximately 1 cm length) are made to insert an implant material.
