What is

This procedure allows you to change the shape or position of the chin. You can only do it when it has reached the total bone growth.
While generally a cosmetic problem, abnormalities of the position of the chin also cause damage to the gums of the lower teeth and can be an obstacle to the closing of the lips.

Before the intervention

Full analysis and a thorough examination of the chin.
Any medication containing aspirin should be avoided 10 days before the operation.
The anesthesiologist will conduct a prior consultation.

The surgery



The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes about an hour.
According to the characteristics of the patient, the incisions made inside the mouth (invisible scars) or under the chin (well hidden scar).



  • Receding chin: placing a silicone implant or a bone graft to model the tip of the chin.
  • Chin forward: reduction of excess bone in the chin.
  • Double chin: Simple or liposuction associated with a reduction of excess skin

After the surgery

Hospitalization is the 24 hours.
Swelling and bruising may occur on the cheeks and lips which disappear within a few days. The mobility of the jaw may be hampered for some time.
To facilitate healing is essential to make a perfect oral hygiene. Avoid overly hot, cold or spicy dishes and leave the snuff, alcohol and exciting drinks.


The final result will be seen after three months of intervention.


Bleeding, swelling, infection, abnormal shape, injury to the teeth, broken jaw or loss of sensation in the lips.
