Chin Shaving Surgery In Phuket Or Bangkok In Thailand
About Chin Shaving
Facial surgery can change chin shape through either chin shaving, chin reduction or chin implants. Chin shape varies widely between males and female, so it is extremely important in gender recognition. The male chin is wider and higher. The female chin tends to be more narrow, pointed and shorter. Chin shaving also known as bone contouring is a process where the excess bone is shaved away to produce a symmetrical shape of the jaw and chin. This is particularly in those individuals with broad faces, pronounced chins and heavy set jaws.

Facial surgery can modify the chin to improve facial appearance and feminize the lower face. This facial feminization surgery may require a small implant, extensive bone cuts or repositioning.
Chin Shaving Surgical Procedure
This facial surgery procedure is called a “sliding genioplasty.” The chin is cut from front to back, separating a horseshoe-shape of bone. This piece can be moved forward or backward to correct a receding or protruding chin. Another section of bone can be completely removed making the chin shorter. The cut angle affects the final height of the chin. The incisions are made either in the mouth or under the chin. The surgeon sculpts the bone to a more pleasing size. For orthognathic surgery, the surgeon will make an incision inside the mouth and reposition the facial bones. The procedure, depending on the extent of the work, takes from less than an hour to approximately three hours.
What will happen at the initial chin shaving consultation?
During the initial consultation, you and your surgeon will discuss the changes you want to make in your appearance. He/she will explain the different options available to you, the procedure itself, and its risks and limitations. The surgeon will also explain the kind of anesthesia required, the surgical facility, and costs. Your plastic surgeon will provide you with instructions about post-operative care. There will be dietary restrictions as well as limitations to your activities. However, you should be aware that your ability to move your mouth and lips may be diminished temporarily. Your surgeon will begin with a complete medical history. The surgeon may also give you specific instructions preparing for surgery, including guidelines for eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding vitamins, supplements and medications. Routine laboratory tests may be required before surgery. Tell your doctor about any allergies you have (to foods, drugs, environmental elements) Avoid aspirin and aspirin-containing medicines for two weeks prior to surgery.
Chin shaving After Care
After surgery, the surgeon usually applies a dressing that will remain in place for two to three days. You will experience some tenderness. Post-operative discomfort can be controlled with prescribed medications. Chewing will probably be limited immediately after chin surgery, and a liquid and soft food diet may be required for a few days after surgery. Most patients feel a stretched, tight sensation after the surgery, but this usually subsides in a week. For the first two weeks the patient is advised to rest, it will take around six weeks to heal and resume their normal activities.
