Who is a good candidate for chin surgery?
Chin surgery is a highly individualized procedure. It can be a life-changing procedure for patients who are self-conscious about their chin. This procedure should be done for yourself, not for someone else or to conform with any sort of ideal image.
In general, you may be a good chin surgery candidate if:
- You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
- You have realistic expectations
- You are a nonsmoker
- You are bothered by the appearance of your chin
- You have a chin that is too short or lack projection
If you're considering surgery, spend some time reviewing chin surgery photos and learning about what to expect during recovery. Preparation ahead of time helps patients have reasonable expectations and a smoother recovery.
