The purpose of chin enhancement surgery is to reshape the chin either by augmenting it with an implant or by reducing its bone size for a more harmonious look. To achieve optimal success with chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, it is crucial to consider the entire facial relationships. This is where Dr. Sonderman’s expertise and understanding of both the facial bone structures and external features become paramount to achieving your desired outcome. Dr. Sonderman is experienced in enlarging a small receding chin with the use of an implant. He is also skilled in decreasing the size of the chin to achieve harmony in the profile. It is often beneficial to combine chin surgery with nose surgery to enhance the face, or with neck /face lift to make the neck angle appear sharper and the neck longer. Variations in surgical correction for your chin, or combining your chin surgery with other procedures can, if indicated, bring all your facial features into more pleasing proportions.
Dr. Sonderman will discuss your concerns with you and explain the details of chin implant or reduction cosmetic surgery. He will take the time to understand the outcome that you want. There are several options to consider, including whether or not another facial procedure should be performed at the same time. He will work with you to determine a surgical plan that best suits your needs to create the results you desire.
