Make ideally beautiful face lines
When the tip of the nose and chin is on the same line on the ideal profile,
upper lip is apart from the line about 2~3mm , and lower lip about 1~2mm.
If you are not, it can be considered due to few reasons such as flat nose, or short chin, or protruded mouth, but the common reason is short chin
caused by weak development of the end of the chin.
Short chin comes in two ways:
with good set of teeth, and bad set of teeth with under jaw dwarfism.
In the case of good set of teeth,
orthodontics is fairly easy and surgical treatment is simple.
Most of people are in this case,
so you have lots of chance of being in this case, too.
Genioplasty, cutting the bone on the end of the chin after general anesthesia and putting forward, or chin implants will help.
The case of not only small chin
but when lower teeth are abnormally far behind than upper teeth,
it means the whole growth of under jaw including teeth were declined.
People with this symptom couldn’t close their mouth well in their childhood
because of relatively big tongue
which could occur dyspnea, but just few cases exist.
There will be a need of orthodontics
and surgery which pulls whole under jaw forward including teeth.
People do genioplasty
when with good set of teeth having small tip of the chin.
It cuts the tip of the chin, move it forward, and fixate stably using equipment.
It improves the line from chin to neck,
and gives much change by replacement.
Implant is another way to improve short chin,
and the most widely used one is silicon.
Implants for short chin are various from shape to size,
so you can choose the appropriate implant for your bone shape
Genioplasty is a fairly simple surgery,
so it goes with local anesthesia.
