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.

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.
