Before you decide on whether or not to have this surgery you will have a consultation with your surgeon to decide exactly what look you want. On the day of the surgery your surgeon will come to meet you to answer any questions that you may have.
During chin augmentation the surgeon will place an implant in the chin from inside the mouth or below the chin. Fine dissolvable sutures are used to keep the implant in place and there should be no visible scarring as a result of the surgery.
For a chin reduction the bone on the chin is filled down to create a better shaped chin. Either surgery will last between 1 – 2 hrs and will require a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in hospital.
