Chin Surgery

Trust your chin surgery to a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive facial surgery experience. Nicolas Villanustre, MD, has experience and extensive training with the best plastic surgeons in the world, and now regularly puts his skills to use for his patients.

Your chin is one of your defining features. If it is too large or too small, it can disrupt the harmonious balance of your face. Chin surgery modifies the shape and contour of your chin to help balance it with your other facial features.

The surgery may use a specialized facial implant or it may involve reduction of the underlying chin.

If you feel that your chin is too large or small, disrupting the balance of your face, you may be a candidate for chin surgery. You also may want to consider another facial surgery, rhinoplasty, as the nose also plays a major role in overall facial harmony.

Treatment: Chin surgery takes 1–2 hours under general anesthesia. Dr. Villanustre begins by making an incision in your mouth or below your chin, to hide any scars. During chin reduction, he reshapes the bone at the tip of your chin. In chin augmentation, he uses chin implants – made from soft, solid, and durable silicone –to reshape your chin and make it more prominent.
