Chin Surgery

Chin Surgery

If you are having nose surgery, your surgeon may also recommend chin surgery, or metoplasty, to reshape your chin, either through an implant or reduction surgery.  This is to achieve facial proportion, as the size of your chin affects the perceived size of your nose.  Chin surgery will help provide a harmonious balance to your face, so you will feel better about how you look.  If you are having nose surgery, or if you feel your chin is already disproportionate to your nose, talk with your plastic surgeon to discuss the possibility of chin surgery.
