Proportionate profile. Attractive Results.
Reshaping your contours for a balanced appearance
Chin surgery aims at bringing harmony to the chin, in proportion to the head, either by altering its shape, height or size. A proportionately sculpted chin in symmetry with the rest of the facial features can help improve one’s confidence and self-esteem.
Chin surgery can either augment the chin or reduce it. Chin augmentation is achieved by surgically moving the jaw forward, using implants or injectable fillers, while chin reduction involves removing bone to decrease an excessively projecting chin. Chin surgery can be performed as a stand-alone procedure, or sometimes as part of a rhinoplasty operation, since the nose and the chin should have a harmonious relation, especially when viewed from the side. A joint procedure (profiloplasty) includes cosmetic surgery techniques combined and aimed at harmonising the whole profile of the face (nose, cheekbones and chin).
Dr. Panayi is a firm believer in tailored solutions that fit the specific unique characteristics of every patient. In order to achieve this, a range of careful measurements is undertaken before the procedure, together with extensive photo-documentation of the target areas. Furthermore, Dr. Panayi always performs a pre-operative 3D simulation of the operation, so that you have a clear idea of what to expect after the procedure. Once your individual operative plan is completed, it is then followed diligently in the operating room. Performed with extraordinary attention to detail and an unparalleled artistic eye, Dr. Panayi takes special care to ensure minimal scarring and an exceptionally natural-looking end-result.
