What is a Chin Surgery?

   

Chin

   

  There are many ways to conduct a chin Surgery. Also known as chin osteotomy, the surgery intention is to extend or decrease the chin length. The chin surgery is also very commonly combined with the jaw surgery, which involves moving the jaws backward or forward. A patient does not have to always have to go through bone surgery for the chin itself. Even though the main method is to fix the chin bone through surgery, in certain cases, insertion of fat grafting or placing implants may be recommended according to each patient’s chin status. Since there are many types of chin, a patient must be diagnosed thoroughly before undergoing the operation. The aesthetical view point is to place surgery on a wide, retreated, long, and short chin.

1. For those who have a short chin, retreated chin, wide chin, or long chin

Chin Surgery Types and Methods

   

TYPE 1 WIDE CHIN

Chin

For a wide chin the T osteotomy is the usual surgical method. The chin is fractured into a T shape in order to reduce both the width and length of the chin.

 

   

TYPE 2 RETREATED CHIN

Chin

  There are mainly two ways in correcting and improving a chin which is retreated too much. The first way is to advance the chin bone. When conducting this surgery, the front part of the chin is fractured and advanced forward. The second method is to insert an implant. The fascia from the front chin is removed before placing the implant.

   

TYPE 3 LONG CHIN

Chin

  For a chin that is longer than the ideal facial ratio, the end of the chin is incised, removed, and last of all, sutured.

   

TYPE 4 SHORT CHIN

  In many cases, for a short chin, a combination of the square jaw surgery may have to be conducted. The first step is to fracture and cut off unneeded parts of the side jaw bone. The second step is to fracture the short or receded chin. The shaved square jaw bone is then inserted into the fractured front chin.
