Everyone would like their doctor is the best chin surgeon. Also, you would like to have surgery at the best plastic surgery clinic in Dubai. However, the best chin surgeon is pretty relative and varies from person to person.
Actually, the surgeon whom you really trust is the best.
If you plan to have chin augmentation surgery in Dubai, I will help you. Here, you will find out all the information you need. If you need professional support, feel free to contact me.
The structure, shape, and size of the facial bones may vary from person to person, which directly reflects the appearance of the face. Therefore the size and shape of the bones are the most influential factors that affect the facial expression of people.
Chin augmentation and reduction can change the feature directly. Thus the deformities of facial bones cause an aesthetic issue in facial expression.
Furthermore the deformities of the jaw bone, may also cause functional chewing problems. In such cases, maxillofacial surgery which is a subdivision of plastic surgery helps to correct such problems.
Chin augmentation or reduction can also be combined with rhinoplasty in cases that facial profile view needs improvement. Such combined procedures are useful for the correction of underdeveloped chin accompanied by a beak-like nose, called “bird face deformity”.
Profiloplasty is the correction of all units forming the face profile. Chin augmentation or reduction is an integral part of profiloplasty surgery.
There are two techniques for chin augmentation:
This technique of chin augmentation is relatively more complicated and exhausting technique. I cut the mucosa 3-4 cm inner aspect of the lower lip’s base and elevates soft tissue off the chin bone. Powered saw cuts a piece of bone from the chin. I relocate the bone piece as advancing forward to increase the projection, then fix it with screws.
The advantage of chin augmentation with osteotomy technique is that of the scar remains inside the mouth. There will be no visible scar outside.
However chin augmentation with osteotomy has disadvantages. Since it is more complicated and more exhausting, many surgeons do not prefer. Surgical time takes longer than chin implant techniques.
Chin implant placement is the most common and relatively simpler technique for chin augmentation. Surgeon approaches to the chin bone either inside the mouth or below the chin.
I cut the mucosa 3-4 cm inner aspect of the lower lip’s base. It is simple to elevate soft tissue off the chin bone. Then I place the chin implant in front of the chin bone and fix it as using screws. The advantage of this technique is that of not to leave a visible surgical scar. Because skin cut locates inside the mouth. However the disadvantage of the technique is slightly higher the risk of infection. Because inside the mouth has very rich bacterial flora.
I cut 3-4 cm the skin below the jaw and create a pocket over the bone just beneath the skin. After the chin implant placement and fixation with the screws skin is closed. This technique of chin augmentation is easier than intraoral approach. Another advantage is less infection risk. However it leaves 3-4 cm surgical mark below the chin.
Chin reduction is useful to reduce oversized jaw bone in order to achieve natural balance of the face proportions. Suitable candidates should have normal occlusion, namely, the upper and lower teeth should fit each other.
Differentiating the mandibular prognathism is critical. In mandibular prognathism, the lower jaw is positioned more forward relatively to upper jaw. Therefore lower teeth and upper teeth do not fit each other and cause a gap between them. In such cases, sagittal split osteotomy techniques required to push back the lower jaw rather than chin reduction surgery.
In chin reduction procedure, I cut the mucosa 3-4 cm inner aspect of the lower lip’s base and elevate the soft tissue off the lower jaw. After I expose the bone completely, I mark the cutting line of the bony excess. Oscillating saw is very useful device and it facilitates to cut the bone. After bone removal, I refine the sharp edges of the bone as rasping to get a smoother bony surface. In the end, I close surgical cut with absorbable sutures.
You may leave the hospital on the same day whether you had chin augmentation or chin reduction. I will prescribe your medicines which includes antibiotic and pain killer. The surgery, either chin augmentation or chin reduction is not so painful, however you should take pain killer to relieve the pain.
If your surgical wound is inside the mouth, you should also use mouth wash for 4-5 days. During this period I recommend you to take soft foods.
You should wear a jaw garment for 1 week following chin surgery.
Concomitant swelling will resolve within 7-10 days. You will see the actual result immediately after chin augmentation surgery.
However settling down of the soft tissues overlying the bone takes longer time after chin reduction surgery. Therefore the result appears 1-2 months later.

Chin augmentation and reduction costs in Dubai vary from clinic to clinic and depend on surgical variations and the technique. In my practice:
The price includes surgeon fee, blood tests, hospitalization expenses, medicines and consumables used in the hospital. Upon your request, additional overnight stay is subject to extra payment. The price may rise depending on the complexity of the procedure.
