Chin reduction

Hi. I feel that my chin is too long. Would I be a good candidate for chin reduction and by how much? I have a strong nose so don't want my chin to be too small, just more in proportion. I feel my flat cheeks also make my face look longer. Are cheek implants or fat transfer the better option?

Good day and thank you for your questions. Dr. Monasebian, our Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, will be able to address your concerns. He would have to see you in person to examine your face and then all options can be discussed. This may include procedures on your nose and chin. Dr. Monasebian is also a maxillofacial surgeon and has performed hundreds of these procedures on the chin and nose. We would be happy to see you if you are in the New York City area. Medical insurance may help cover the costs of the procedure if deemed medically necessary which can be determined at your consultation. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Regards, Dr. Monasebian and Park Avenue Plastic Surgery.

Hello. It is difficult to answer your question without seeing a profile (side) view of your face. As far as cheek implants vs fat grafting, it depends on how much projection you need. A little projection can be achieved with fat grafting, but if you need a lot of height added, then implants would be a better option.

I looked at your photo and your face is oval and your nose tip is prominent and your chin is longer. If I reduced your chin, then it would be square which would make your face more masculine. I probably would recommend check implants which would triangulate your face and bring everything more into proportion. I do this as outpatient with incisions in mouth. You would need to be in area of my offices(MIAMI/Newport Beach/San Francisco and EU but only in December) for at least 4 days. You can send photos for evaluation or arrange a Zoom/Whatsup/Skype/Facetime consultation complimentary. Dr. ED Domanskis
