What is the surgery like to experience?

Genioplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure, done in our onsite surgical suite. 

  • To begin the procedure, strategic incisions are carefully made. This allows for the manipulation of tissues and bones in the area. 
  • In the case of chin reduction, the bone may be shaved down. 
  • In the case of chin augmentation, a chin implant may be put in place.

What is recovery like after chin augmentation or reduction?

After chin augmentation or reduction, you should allow yourself time to relax and heal. You may need to take approximately one week away from work. To keep your results in place, you may be provided with specific bandages or other wrappings. Our professional staff will provide you with all the information you need to adequately prepare for and recover from your genioplasty procedure.

Chin Surgery FAQ

Will I need to be on a special diet after chin surgery?

There are no specific dietary restrictions, however, eating and chewing may be difficult for the first few days of your recovery. It is best to start with a soft diet and return to a normal diet when it becomes tolerable.

What kind of results can I expect from chin augmentation or reduction?

Results achieved with genioplasty will vary, according to your specific goals for chin surgery. While some results may be visible initially, final results can take some time to appear. Once any bruising or swelling has subsided, you will see your best and long-lasting results.

Will chin surgery affect the appearance of my neck?

Chin augmentation increases the projection of the chin. This can make the neck appear leaner and more angular and youthful. This procedure can also have a skin-tightening effect on the neck.

How does chin surgery affect the appearance of the nose?

Together, the nose and chin play an important role in facial balance. A small or receding chin can make the nose appear overly large. Conversely, an overly large nose can make a normal chin appear too small. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with non-surgical and surgical rhinoplasty to create facial balance.

How do I know if chin augmentation or reduction is right for me?

Genioplasty is a diverse surgical procedure that can address a range of concerns related to the chin and profile. Explore the possibilities during a consultation with Dr. Harbison at Omaha Face.
