Frequently participating in video chats and sharing selfies on apps such as Instagram have made many of us acutely conscious of how we look from every potential point of view. As a result, more people have begun to consider the benefits of chin reshaping surgery to make their faces look more proportional, particularly in profile.
As an experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Schmidt can add definition and contour by either reducing the size of your chin or carefully inserting an implant. Because people instinctively associate facial symmetry with health and attractiveness, chin surgery can immediately improve others’ opinion of your looks.
At Schmidt Facial Plastic Surgery, our goal is to provide valuable information about the procedures we provide and help all our patients feel more confident about the decision to surgically enhance their appearance. To learn more about chin reshaping surgery in Colorado, reach out to us today.
The Proven Benefits of Chin Surgery
Think of your chin as a supporting character for the rest of your face. Unlike the eyes or the mouth, the ideal chin will never call attention to itself – instead, it helps create a strong jawline and a symmetrical frame for the face, enhancing the other features and overall appearance.
By contrast, a disproportionately sized chin can disrupt the balance among facial features. This common issue is easy to correct with chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty.
Depending on the patient’s needs, mentoplasty will involve either augmentation of the chin with an implant or chin reduction. Dr. Schmidt commonly performs this procedure in conjunction with a rhinoplasty, which can significantly enhance a patient’s appearance and profile.
Who Is a Candidate for Chin Surgery?
Patients who experience any of the following could be strong candidates for mentoplasty:
A disproportionately large or small chin
A chin that juts out prominently
A flat or receded chin
A weak jawline

For chin augmentation, Dr. Schmidt will place a soft, natural-feeling implant deep within the chin tissue. As an expert in facial anatomy, Dr. Schmidt will carefully sculpt the implant to harmonize with the nose and other facial features.
For chin reduction, Dr. Schmidt will file down the lower jawbone to reduce its prominence. This procedure can also typically restore an even chin or jawline for patients with an asymmetrical bone structure.
Dr. Schmidt will hide incisions for chin surgery behind the chin under the mouth, so visible scarring is not a concern.
Results and Recovery for Mentoplasty in Denver
Chin reshaping is an outpatient surgery. You’ll be able to return home the same day, but please arrange someone to drive you, since you’ll be drowsy from the anesthesia.
The results of chin surgery are immediate and permanent. Patients will leave with a proportionate chin and strong, balanced profile.
Dr. Schmidt consults personally with each patient regarding recovery and aftercare. Typically, patients will wear dressings over the chin, which they’ll be able to remove about a week after surgery.
Patients should expect minor bruising and swelling after the procedure, which typically dissipates by the two-week mark after surgery.
Denver Chin Reshaping FAQs
Dr. Schmidt has helped restore many people’s self-confidence with skillfully performed facial rejuvenation surgery in Denver. As a double board-certified expert, he often fields questions about chin reshaping surgery.
What If My Results Look Unnatural?
While you can probably picture several celebrities with over-the-top lip or breast enhancements, that won’t be the case with chin reshaping. A skilled surgeon such as Dr. Schmidt will use his experience as a physician and his artistic eye to provide a subtle, proportional outcome.
How Long Do Chin Implants Last?
Most people get a single chin implant that lasts the rest of their lives. While the implant remains in place, the results of your chin augmentation will be permanent. However, if you ever change your mind about your enhanced appearance, removing the implant is a relatively straightforward procedure.
Are There Different Options for Chin Implants in Denver, CO?
Chin implants are not one-size-fits-all. Dr. Schmidt will help you choose the appropriate size and contour to provide the most natural-looking outcome.
