A receding or retreating chin affects the appearance of a face very much and is a common feature in people whose faces are also characterized by an unfavorable nose shape. Quite often nasal and chin corrections are often combined.
Depending on the prerequisites a patient brings, the build-up of the chin takes place either through a plastic implant or through the body’s own tissue, which is inserted by forming a small incision below the chin or on the inside of the lip.
The operation is performed under local anesthesia and takes only 45 minutes. The swelling disappears after only 10-14 days so that shortly afterward the threads can be pulled again.
Further information on chin correction can be obtained from our clinic director Dr. med. (H) Deniel Kish at a personal consultation. A non-binding consultation appointment is best made by phone at T:+41 44 505 13 24 or via our contact form.
