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.
