What is Chin Reduction Aesthetics?
Aesthetic operations performed by plastic surgeons aiming a natural facial expression to eliminate several defects diagnosed, such as the chin being ahead or longer or larger than usual, as well as fixing the curvature of the chin, are called chin reduction aesthetics.
As with the large chins, the small chin is also a frequently observed aesthetic problem in people.

Individuals experience dissatisfaction with their chin structures and appearances, as well as physical needs such as eating and smiling.
How is Chin Reduction Surgery Performed?

During the evaluations, the procedure is planned by the surgeon considering the expectations of the patient about the size and shape of the chin. Then, the surgery is performed by plastic surgeon in the appropriate operating theatres of health institutions or private clinics. In such procedures, excess bones are cut by entering the inner side of the lower lip and the chin is ensured to be at the desired size. During the procedure, which is performed by cutting the chin bone and taking it forward, bone tissue is transported into the cavity formed during the pulling of the chin forward. The surgery is finalised by fixing the bone by titanium plates and screws.
