What is Receding Chin Correction?

Smooth and natural face contour

Receding chin refers to the case where the upper jaw is excessively developed, making the lowermost part of the face looks missing, or the length of the face is insufficient. If there is no malocclusion, a small chin can be corrected by receding chin correction or simply procedure using a chin implant.

However, if a patient suffers from malocclusion, the two-jaw surgery and orthodontic treatment are required. JW Plastic Surgery Center gives you an impressive facial line without a small chin.

It is a surgical procedure to correct the small chin by cutting the lower jawbone, then moves it forward and fix into the proper position.

This procedure is performed without using any artificial implant material, and it is effective in creating a beautiful neckline while significantly adjusting the position of the chin tip.

Chin Implant

There are various types of implants for chin augmentation. The most common materials are Gore-Tex and silicone, which selected considering each patient’s bone shape.

Chin augmentation using an implant is a relatively simple procedure, in which only one or two small incisions (approximately 1 cm length) are made to insert an implant, and can be completed within 30 minutes.
