The chin is a prominent facial feature that has a significant impact on overall facial appearance.
A chin that is too large or over-projecting may appear out of proportion with the rest of the face and detract from the eyes by interfering with the overall harmony of the face.
As a highly-respected facial plastic surgeon in Worcester, Dr. Frank Fechner is recognized for the outstanding skill with which he performs chin reduction surgery. His personalized approach, compassion, and superior surgical skills allow you to achieve beautiful facial balance with artistry for a more attractive jawline and more aesthetically pleasing facial structure.
Technically known as reduction mentoplasty, chin reduction is a plastic surgery procedure designed to reduce an overly prominent chin. With this cosmetic surgical technique, Dr. Fechner can transform a patient’s appearance and create a more harmonious profile. Reducing the size or projection of an excessively prominent chin can dramatically improve the appearance of the jawline and bring the facial features into a more appealing balance.
Chin reduction is performed as an outpatient procedure under sedation anesthesia. It begins with a small incision that Dr. Fechner likes to place strategically into a natural crease under the chin.
Next, he removes excess bone to shape and contour the chin and then closes the incision with sutures. Sometimes, in addition to bone, Dr. Fechner removes soft tissues in order to treat a droopy chin or to prevent such an issue from occurring.

On behalf of the entire team at Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we would like to take a moment to say thank you again for your loyalty and support during this unprecedented time. The past several months have been unlike anything we've ever experienced, and we're working hard to evolve so that we can continue to provide you with the patient experience you have come to expect from our practice.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa has taken extreme precautionary measures, in addition to following the most up to date CDC recommendations and state guidelines to maximize the health and safety of our patients, staff and facility. Our surgical center and medical spa remain committed to providing the best patient care, and we are actively working to take all necessary precautions as we plan to safely re-open our practice. Please help us continue to protect the health and well-being of our patients and workplace by cooperating with all of our precautionary measures and protocols against COVID-19 at your next appointment, or as you plan for your surgery.
As a fully accredited surgical facility, Fechner MD has always observed the highest level of safety and sanitation. In fact, as a surgeon, Dr. Fechner is an expert in infection control. We want to ensure that we are doing everything possible for our patients to safely return for surgical and medical spa treatments alike.
The upgraded work flow and safety protocols we have implemented at Fechner MD far exceed those being recommended by any government agency.
Fechner MD will adhere to all local, state, and government mandates. We expect to cautiously resume medical spa and injectable treatments during Phase 2 of the Massachusetts phased reopening. We are awaiting a definitive date from Governor Baker. Cosmetic surgery is expected to resume during Phase 3 of Governor Baker’s plan. We ask for your patience and understanding as our staff is working diligently to reschedule all surgeries and procedures affected by our closure. Please understand that in order to open and adhere to Massachusetts guidelines, we will need to limit the number of staff and patients we have in our building and extend the time between patient appointments in order to sanitize rooms. This means we will have fewer available openings for procedures. In order to maximize our provider appointments, we will continue to hold consultations virtually rather than in person, with a few exceptions (body contouring, Instalift, vein treatments).
We thank you in advance for your patience throughout this time, and we look forward to seeing you here again as we begin to resume business operations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa at (508) 754-4000 and our team will gladly assist you. Thank you!
