    Short chin correction

    Theall’s face contouring surgery

    Short chin correction is performed by considering the condition of jaw bone, occlusal balance, size and location of the front and rear jaws, etc. If only the chin tip is small, it can be corrected by inserting prosthetic material.

  • Appropriate cases for short chin surgery
    • Short chin
      The length of the chin is too short, or the boundary between the chin and neck is not clear
    • Retreated chin
      The chin bone is too retreated than normal cakes
    • Protruded lip
      Since the end of the chin is retreated or relatively small, the lip looks to be protruded.
    • No pointed chin
      There is no point on the face and looking dowdy
  • Types of Short chin correction
    • Short chin correction with prosthetic material

      For minor short chin problems, we can correct them by inserting prosthetic material such as goretex to adjust the size and location of the jaw. Having no adverse reaction in the body, goretex is the most commonly used; almost no swelling is expected after surgery. It is possible to resume daily life after removing the bandage 3~4 days after the surgery.
    • Short chin correction with chin tip angle ostectomy

      We prolong the length of chin with autologous bone or artificial bone, cut the upper part of the jaw bone, advance the lower part as much as required, and fix. It is appropriate for those who do not like the insertion of prosthetic material or when such is not appropriate. Operation takes about an hour after general anesthesia, and it is possible to resume normal life 4~5 days after surgery.
