Woman touching her chinThe shape of the face can be very instrumental in determining how a person feels about their appearance. People who have with they feel is an elongated facial structure because of a large chin can be very dissatisfied with their face. For women,this look may make them appear more masculine and in some cases heavier. Dr. O’Toole explains to patients who are considering chin augmentation through chin reduction that the procedure should be considered with facial rejuvenation for the entire face. For symmetry Dr. O’Toole may recommend a rhinoplasty to reshape the nose so that it matches the chin. Patients should be prepared for 7 to 10 days of early healing with bruising and swelling. If both procedures are performed in combination with each other the swelling could be more significant. Most patients find the pain level to be mild to moderate. The chin reduction procedure is permanent and it reshapes the face through the shaving down of the bone. Patients should be sure of their choice and understand that subtle more natural changes will be less obvious to friends and family. Most patients are very happy with their decision to have chin augmentation. According to a recent online post the best candidates for chin reduction surgery are individuals that are largely hopeless with the appearance with their chin’s profile, in superior physical and mental stability, and realistic in their expectations concerning the effects of the procedure. Candidates should be at least 20 years of age as this defines chin development in its final stage.
