How Do I Treat My Hyperdynamic Chin Ptosis?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Hello, I believe that I have hyperdynamic chin ptosis. My chin appears normal at rest, it is prominent when talking or smiling. It bothers me, especially while talking. I never had any surgery done. What would be my options to correct the appearance of my chin?
Thanks in advance.
A: Hyperdynamic chin ptosis is treated by a submental approach where excessive chin pad soft tissues are removed and the mentalis muscle insertion is tightened down to the bone.
