Chin reduction surgery in Lima is a surgical procedure focused on correcting the size and position of the chin. This surgery provides incredible aesthetic results and improves the symmetry and proportionality of the patient’s face.

The chin is a very important part of our face because it stylizes, harmonizes, and defines our facial characteristics. Therefore, chin reduction surgery will help you correct it.

WHAT DOES CHIN REDUCTION SURGERY CONSIST OF?

It is a quick, simple surgical intervention with incredible results. It consists of reducing the chin to the right size to achieve a more symmetrical and attractive face.

Many patients come to our office because they have a prominent chin. Chin reduction surgery is the best option to solve this. There are two techniques to do it.

  • Scraping the chin jawbone, when the prominence is not severe.
  • That of the ‘incision’ (osteotomy), when the prominence is greater.

HOW IS A CHIN REDUCTION SURGERY PERFORMED?

First of all, it is important to attend the consultation and evaluation with our specialist, Dr. Alfredo Zuiko. Here, 3D x-rays will be taken to obtain a correct diagnosis and explain the treatment in detail.

Once this is finished, the patient will be shown how his new chin would look after surgery. If the patient likes it, the appointment for chin reduction surgery is scheduled.

On the day of surgery, a small intraoral incision is made under the mouth. If the prominence of the chin is not considered severe, then the bone is ‘scraped’ to reduce it until it reaches the ideal size and shape.

However, if the prominence is large, then incisions are made and a portion of the bone is removed. Small titanium plates and screws are used to stabilize the new position of the chin.

AFTER CARE

After the operation, the treated area will be swollen and may have slight bleeding. To control these discomforts and prevent infection, you will be prescribed antibiotics and pain relievers.

It is important to rest and not do physical activities that could jeopardize recovery. This period should be at least two weeks, or as indicated by Dr Zuiko.

Finally, it is important to follow all the recommendations provided by Dr. Zuiko to guarantee a stable, hassle-free recovery and obtain the expected results.

WHAT ARE THE RESULTS OF THIS SURGERY?

Chin reduction surgery offers excellent results. The patient will enjoy a beautiful aesthetic, a stylized profile, and a more proportionate face.

The final results can be seen after five to eight days once initial swelling reduces.
