Chin Tip Surgery
Chin tip is one of two important structures forming the facial profile (nose tip), should be proportional to and in harmony with the other parts of the face. With the application called profiloplasty, the cosmetic chin tip surgery is generally combined with rhinoplasty operations. When looking at the profile of face, if the chin tip is at the back compared to nose, prosthesis is placed in the chin tip during rhinoplasty, thus the chin, nose and face are made proportional to each other. The chin prosthesis placed also corrects the jowl of the patient. Cosmetic chin tip surgery is applied for patients whose mouth closing and teeth sequence are normal. This operation is an easy procedure which ensures significant correction and rejuvenation as well as being simple and reliable in facial aesthetics.
