CHIN CORRECTION: CHINOPLASTY AT THE NOAHKLINIK KASSEL

Kinnplastik in Kassel

A well-shaped chin determines the harmony of the face. For people who suffer from a severely receding or protruding chin, a chin correction gives the chin a new shape. We always keep the proportions of the entire face in mind and thus create an aesthetic result.

Prof. Dr. med. Ernst Magnus Noah is a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery in Kassel. Prof. Noah has already been President of the VDÄPC - (Association of German Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons).

Treatment of a receding chin

With a receding chin, the bony structure is only slightly developed - the face therefore does not have a clear finish and the jawline is often only slightly pronounced. To give the chin a clear shape, our plastic and aesthetic surgeon, Prof. Dr. Noah, works with implants. A local anaesthetic is usually sufficient for inserting the implant. There are two different access routes: via the oral cavity or just below the chin. The operation takes between one and two hours.

Treatment of a prominent chin

If the chin is very prominent, an imbalance in the harmony of the face can occur. An excess of fat cells that cause a double chin, for example, can be treated in the context of a Liposuction can be suctioned off without complications. If underlying bony structures are decisive for the prominence of the chin, we carefully remove them and thus reshape the chin. This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and also takes between one and two hours.

Behaviour after a genioplasty

Immediately after the procedure, the operated tissue is sensitive to touch and swollen. Carefully cool the area and keep your head elevated if possible. If the chin correction was performed through the oral cavity, chewing may be uncomfortable. Therefore, use soft foods and rinse your mouth regularly with an antiseptic mouthwash. A tight bandage will protect and support the chin after surgery. After about two weeks, most patients are socially fit again - you can resume sports after four weeks.

Complications of a chin correction

In addition to the complications that can occur with any procedure (such as wound healing problems and post-operative bleeding), there is a particular risk of injuring facial nerves or parts of the jaw and teeth during a genioplasty.
