Short Chin Revision Surgery

Short or receding chin refers to a condition where the person has a normal bite, but the jawbone is situated too far back or is too short. If the boundary between the neck and face is ambiguous or the patient has a protruding mouth, surgery is performed to reposition the jawbone. Depending on the symptoms, it may be possible to revise the shape of the chin through osteotomy, implant surgery, or fat grafting.

Ideal Chin Characteristics

The chin should be located 3mm in front of the forehead.

When a line is drawn from the chin to the nose tip, it should be at an angle of 75~80° and be 4mm away from the upper lip and 2mm from the lower lip.

When a line is drawn between the philtrum and the chin, the lips should slightly project outward beyond the line.

The chin should have a smooth S-shaped curve.

The ratio of the top, middle and bottom part of the face should be 1:1:0.8.

Diverse Types of Short Chin Surgery at iWELL

There are a wide variety of implants that can be used for the chin. Silicone, Goretex or Medpor (artificial bone) can be inserted to enlarge the chin or reposition it. Surgery is performed by making a small incision inside the mouth and inserting the individually customized implant in place.

01 A small incision is made into the mucous membrane between the lips and gums.
02 A space is created for implant insertion.
03 A custom-made implant is inserted in place and an absorbable thread is used to suture the incision site.
Duration of Surgery Anesthesia Suture Removal Recovery Period
Around 30 minutes Sedation Unnecessary – Taping under the chin for 5 days after surgery
– Possible to return to everyday routines (work) 3~5 days after surgery

This is a method of performing osteotomy on the chin and moving it forward to position it in an appropriate place.Because the bone itself is moved, it is possible to adjust the length of the chin by varying the angle of the osteotomy, and the resulting chin shape appears natural. However, compared to the implant and fat transfer method, it takes longer and requires general anesthesia.

01 A 2 to 3cm incision is made into the mucous membrane near the chin.
02 Osteotomy is performed on the chin along the predetermined cutting line and the bottom fragment is moved forward.
03 The bone that has been moved forward is fixed in place and the incision is sutured with an absorbable thread.
Duration of Surgery Anesthesia Suture Removal Recovery Period
Within 1 hour General Anesthesia Unnecessary – Compression bandage for 2~3 days and returning to everyday routines after a week

Excess fat is collected from the thighs, buttocks or abdomen and grafted into several layers of the chin area.Because excess fat is used, it can also help improve the body shape. Also, it is a simple procedure that causes reduced swelling and leads to a fast recovery.

01 A thin tube is used to collect fat from the thighs, abdomen, etc.
02 Pure fat cells are isolated using a centrifuge.
03 A fine injection needle is used to inject the fat into the subcutaneous layer to maximize the survival rate.
