All those men or women who have already completed their craniofacial growth, approximately between 15-16 years, and that the chin region did not develop properly.
There are several degrees of chin hypoplasia. According to an analysis performed by the plastic surgeon, the surgeon will determine whether there is the need of an implant (prosthetic material), or, in severe cases, will assess the need to cut a segment of the jaws bone and advance it.
A clinical analysis is required, based on measurements and facial proportions to determine if you are a candidate for this surgery. Sometimes a problem is associated with dental arches (micrognathia), which should be evaluated before your surgery because you may need orthognathic surgery.
Initially you will have some swelling or inflammation and mild pain that will fade away with the indicated medications. During the first few weeks you may feel a certain numbness of the chin, which will eventually give away.
You should avoid any blow or support in the area for 2-3 weeks to prevent the implant from shifting.
The incisions will be practically imperceptible in the course of 6-8 weeks. As the swelling subsides, your chin will be smoothed and you will look better and better.
