What Type Of Chin Reduction Do I Need?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Looking to improve the rounded appearance/protrusion to the chin on the side profile. On the front view I would like to achieve a slightly shorter and more rounded/feminine look to the chin. I also have a chin dimple that I have corrected with filler but it is still slightly visible in certain lighting and I would like to have that resolved.
A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. It appears that much of your chin excess is from the soft tissue pad which will take a submental approach and some bone removal as well to adequately reshape it smaller. Fat injections would be the logical approach to the chin dimple which could be performed at the same time.
