As highly regarded Beverly Hills chin surgery specialists, Doctors Mayer and Fleming have helped numerous patients realize their dreams of a beautifully contoured chin. Their reputation for outstanding surgical results and impeccable patient care attracts many patients from throughout the greater Los Angeles area, the United States and the world every year. Please peruse the paragraphs below to learn more about this procedure and the results Beverly Hills chin reduction patients can achieve through it.
Reduction mentoplasty – or chin reduction surgery – is performed in order to reduce an overly-prominent chin. As in nasal surgery, we want to achieve harmony with the surrounding facial characteristics. Ideally, the chin should project to a point immediately below the lower lip. When surgery of the chin is necessary it can be done in conjunction with the rhinoplasty or as a separate procedure. Orthodontia to correct the position of the teeth or oral surgery to change the position of the jaw is sometimes required.
The most common aesthetic flaw our Beverly Hills chin implant patients desire to correct is a bulbous or overdeveloped chin. We treat this by making a smill incision under the crease of the chin and reducing excess bone. The chin is bandaged for four to five days.
There are minimal risks of infection, bleeding, rejection or asymmetry, and very rare occurrence of nerve injury.
