Chin Surgery in Malaga
Many patients wish to enhance or reduce the size of their chin (Genioplasty). It can be filled with the patient’s own fat through lipotransfer. Alternatively, it can be augmented by placing an implant through the mouth or under the chin.
We can even perform an advancement of the bone through osteotomies. Dr. Javier Collado’s preference will depend on each patient’s needs. The goal is always to achieve a natural result that harmonizes with facial morphology.
Chin augmentation or reduction
The insertion of a chin implant can take between 30 minutes to an hour. During the surgery, the doctor selects the most suitable size and design to enhance the appearance and inserts it into the pocket above the center of the jawbone. The small incision to create the pocket and insert the implant is made from inside the mouth (along the lower lip) or beneath the chin.
Usually, the chin is taped after surgery to minimize discomfort and swelling. Stitches are removed between five and seven days after surgery. If the incision is intraoral, the stitches dissolve.
Specialists in chin surgery.
Here are some of the notable benefits of genioplasty:
- It's a very straightforward surgical treatment.
- Results are highly natural.
- There are no visible scars.
- Subsequent removal is practically unnecessary.
- Remarkable facial improvements for the patient.
- Enhanced confidence and self-esteem.
The approach to this procedure involves two directions: using an implant placed in the chin or surgically reshaping the chin bone. The result is a firmer and more defined chin, achieving a facial oval with greater definition. Therefore, the best candidates are those with a lack of definition between the chin and neck, especially from a lateral view.
It’s considered outpatient surgery if performed with local anesthesia. A short 24-hour stay might be necessary if general anesthesia is required.
If you’re a smoker, you should refrain from smoking. Tobacco can have a negative impact on the healing process.
As the stitches are absorbable, there’s no need to visit the clinic for stitch removal.
Very happy with the result. Javier and his entire team are excellent professionals. Furthermore, the treatment has been unbeatable and very close from the first moment. I had many doubts about whether to have surgery or not and I have to say that I regret not having done it sooner, since the result is fantastic and I have not had any pain. I had a rhinoplasty, I definitely recommend it 100%.
Dr. Collado has restored my happiness. He has blessed hands and what he touches he turns into beauty. Thank you doctor for giving me back the desire to fight, I loved your work. When I look in the mirror, I am very happy. Thank you.
A month ago Javier changed my life, he performed a mastopexy on me and I am the happiest.
As soon as you meet him you know that he is the one who has to operate on you.
Without a doubt, Javier has impressive hands as a surgeon. My experience has been very positive due to the care and advice before the operation. I will always recommend you.
I had a mastopexy on January 10 and I am very happy with the result. They were perfect, since my chest was quite bad, which is why I value the work done by Dr. Javier Collado much more. He is kind and sincere, and treated me very closely. I am very satisfied with the result and with my choice of surgeon. Thank you!
I had a breast augmentation with a prosthesis almost 3 years ago at Quirón Marbella. To date it has been the best decision I have made. My surgery was great. Doctor Javier Collado is very professional. The result exceeded my expectations!
🙏🏽 Thank you always doctor. I have no hesitation in returning to him for any future breast surgery.
Now that it has been a year since I had my nose done with Javier Collado, I can say that he is an excellent surgeon (10/10). The first months after the surgery everything was very swollen, especially the tip, but now that a year has passed and I can really see the result, the tip is perfect, the septum perfect. Plus, the size of the nose fits my face perfectly. It’s exactly what I wanted. All perfect. Thank you very much Javier.
On the 17th, I underwent an abdominoplasty with Javier Collado and my dreams have come true. I wish to thank him for his professionalism and for being so humane. I would recommend him to everyone.
I decided to put myself in the hands of Dr. Javier Collado because of the confidence he emitted from the first moment. In 2016, I had an abdominoplasty and, in 2017, a mastopexy with prosthesis and a thigh lift. The results have once again been excellent.
I visited at least 10 surgeons before deciding and just from speaking with Javier, I knew I wouldn’t make a mistake by putting myself in his hands. I had breast augmentation surgery 16 days ago and… I’m delighted! I am having a very good post-operative period and I love the result.
I only visited, with him, 3 surgeons. However, when I went to his consultation with my husband, we were captivated by his sincerity and kindness. I have only had the operation for 5 days, the postoperative period is going very well with a breast reconstruction with implants and an abdominoplasty that has exceeded my expectations.
It’s been three days since Doctor Collado operated on my chest and I’m super happy! Thank you.
