Chin Surgery (Mentoplasty)
Chin Enhancement and Reduction in Tampa
Whether your chin is too large or too small, it can cause the other features of your face, such as the mouth, nose or eyes, to appear awkward or out of balance. Those who are unhappy with the size of their chin may struggle with low self-confidence and a negative self-image. Chin surgery can be used to enhance or reduce the size of the chin to bring a beautiful balance to the face.
Chin surgery is performed in Tampa by Dr. Stan Castor at Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery and Laser Center. Dr. Castor is a board certified Plastic Surgeon with the necessary skills and experience to achieve optimal results with chin implant and reduction procedures.
Are Chin Implants Right for Me?
Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a facial plastic surgery procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone. Many times Dr. Stan Castor may recommend chin surgery to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Chin surgery helps provide a harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.
Chin surgery may be right for you if you are unhappy with the size or projection of your chin. Chin implants can be used to increase the size and projection of the chin. Dr. Castor will perform a chin reduction if you feel that your chin is too large or projects out too far.
How Is Chin Surgery Performed?
Chin Augmentation with Implants
Your chin augmentation will be performed using a specially designed silicone implant that Dr. Castor will develop based on your unique goals and expectations. An incision will be made either on the inside of your mouth or under your chin. Dr. Castor will then place the implant within a small pocket in the underlying tissue and close your incisions. Your chin implant is created to last a lifetime, but it can be easily removed or revised if you choose to change its appearance later on.
Chin Reduction Surgery
During your consultation, you will discuss your goals and expectations with Dr. Castor so the two of you have a good understanding of what you want to achieve and how to achieve it with reduction surgery. Your incision will be made within your mouth or under your chin to reveal the underlying muscle and tissue. Any excess fat can be removed with liposuction, although chin reduction surgery will focus more on the bone. To effectively reduce the size of your chin, Dr. Castor will need to reshape the bone until it is at your desired size.
