Chin reduction is a type of procedure that reduces the size of the chin by shaving down the bone through an incision made in the lower gums.
Chin reduction surgery begins with the surgeon making an incision inside the mouth (near the lower lip) or under the chin. Using specialized instruments, the surgeon detaches the bone at the tip of the chin and then reshapes and removes the excess bone to properly proportion the contour. The tip is then repositioned with the remaining section of the chin and held together using wires and plates. The incisions are sutured to complete the procedure.
