Plastic Surgery Case Study – Submental Chin Reduction Technique in Females

Background: Chin deficiency is the most common aesthetic deficiency in men while chin excess is fairly uncommon. In women, however, excessive chin deformities are far more common. Such macrogenias (large chins) occur in two main dimensions, horizontal and vertical, and often presents as a combination of both. Excessive width often occurs as well but always Read More…

Plastic Surgery Case Study – Submental Technique for Vertical Chin Reduction

Background: Excessive chin projection can occur in numerous dimensions and often involves multiple dimensional excesses concurrently. But isolated chin excesses or single dimensional macrogenias (large chins) do occur and presents as either in the horizontal or vertical dimensions. Vertical macrogenia can be effectively treated through two different approaches unlike many other types of large chins. Read More…

Correction of Bony Chin Asymmetry By Inferior Border Shaving

Asymmetry of the chin is not common and is almost always due to the bone. Since the lower jaw is formed embryologically by paired arches coming together in the midline at the chin it would not be surprising that occasionally the two half are not perfectly equal creating a bony asymmetry. (congenital chin asymmetry) But Read More…

Plastic Surgery Case Study – Female Submental Chin Reduction

Background: Chin reduction remains an infrequently performed and challenging procedure. It is a far ‘simpler’ aesthetic prospect to stretch out the soft tissues of a bony prominence through implants or osteotomies (chin expansion) than it is to do a bony chin reduction. While often believed that simple burring of the bone from an intraoral approach Read More…
