Chin reduction surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia and takes about an hour or two to complete. During the procedure, an incision is made either inside the mouth or underneath the chin, and a portion of the chin bone is removed. The remaining bone is then reshaped to create a more balanced and natural-looking appearance. The incision is then closed with sutures, and a bandage or compression garment may be applied to help reduce swelling and promote healing.
Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities within 7-10 days after surgery. Swelling and bruising are common after the procedure and may take a few weeks to resolve.
