Chin correction | Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery

A new harmony of face and profile

The chin represents one part of the face that is often neglected. This is surprising, since the shape of our chin automatically – and often unconsciously – has an effect on the people around us.

Even when the facial expression as such does not change, different chin shapes create different qualities associated with a person and their aura. A chin may appear “energetically male”, “gently female”, or “childlike”.

People with a strongly protruding or a particularly receding chin often have a harder time in their life than people whose chin shapes are less easily remarkable. For the only reason that their facial profile lacks harmony. This harmony can be established by means of a chin correction with us at Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery:

  • by means of a chin enlargement – if the chin is too small, one that is seen as “receding”, or one that appears like a double chin although the entire body is slender
  • by means of a chin reduction – so that women with a large chin achieve a more feminine face, or men get a more friendly expression

Our team at Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will be happy to inform you in detail during a personal consultation about which treatment options for a chin correction will be most promising in your particular case. Please feel free to contact us about this.

Faq on Chin Correction

What does chin correction mean?

The purpose of a chin correction is to create a harmonious profile in cases of a chin that before was either particularly pronounced or receding; the way to do this is by means of a surgical operation.

Which chin correction methods are there?

When we speak about a chin correction, we must differentiate between a chin enlargement and a chin reduction. A chin enlargement may optimise a receding chin which usually appears like a double chin. In cases of a very prominent chin, however, a chin reduction may be called for.

Does a chin correction hurt?

After a chin correction, the chin may first be pressure-sensitive and hurt. Occurring pain can be countered effectively by means of current anti-pain medication.

What is important before and after a chin correction?

About two weeks before a chin correction, no blood-thinning medication and no nutritional supplements should be taken. In a personal consultation at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we provide detailed instruction as to how to behave before a chin correction.

After the chin correction, you should again refrain from taking any nutritional supplements for another two weeks. The further aftercare depends on the respective method performed.

How is a chin correction carried out?

The chin correction will be carried out in accordance with the individual situation and the chosen treatment method. In a personal consultation appointment, we will inform you in detail about the operation and we will discuss with you which treatment method is best suited for you and your needs.

Will the effect of a chin operation last?

Yes, the effect of a chin correction will last your entire life.

Will there be visible scars after a chin correction?

Here at Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we pay particular attention to using operation methods that leave as few scars as possible. The access to a chin correction will in many cases be via the oral cavity so that there will not be any visible scars later on. Should access from the outside be necessary, we will place the incision so that it will hardly be visible afterwards.

What are the risks connected with a chin operation?

Like with any other operation, a chin correction also comes with the usual operation risks such as infections, wound healing issues, or bleeding. At Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, you will be treated exclusively by experienced and qualified medical specialists, so that we are able to reduce these risks to a large extent. In a personal consultation appointment, we will inform you once again about all risks that might occur during a chin correction.

How much does a chin operation cost?

The costs for a chin correction in our Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery start at 4,500 €. We will be happy to prepare an individual cost calculation for you during a personal consultation.
