Chin Enhancements

Many patients, both men and women, find their appearance can be dramatically improved by enhancements to the chin. The balance of chin projection with respect to the position of the lips is critical to the appearance of youth and beauty in a woman while essential to a man who wants to project strength and masculinity. Chins may be small or recessed and associated with disorders of the jaw as well as sleep apnea. A small chin may accentuate the appearance of a heavy neck or skin excess in the neck. Dr. Sobel will design a set of specific procedure options for each individual. In some cases, Dr. Sobel will refer a patient to other specialists for the treatment of jaw or sleep disorders. Examples of various possible procedures follow.

Chin Implant

In cases where the chin is simply small (microgenia) or recessed (retrogenia), an implant is used to bring the chin out to proper proportions. A small incision is made under the chin and an implant specifically fitted for the patient is inserted. The procedure is relatively simple and results are immediate with minimum swelling and bruising. Alternatively, facial fillers, such as Juvederm Voluma, Radiesse, Sculptra, and Artefill, among others may be used in lieu of an implant.

Submental Liposculpture

The chins and jawlines of some patients are adequate, yet they may appear recessive due to excess fat under the chin and jaw. In these cases, the fat is removed through very small incisions and a liposculpture process. With the fat gone, the chin once again appears normal. If the chin is recessive and there is excess fat under the chin, both an implant and liposculpture may be combined in one procedure.

Facelift

In the case of an aging face where skin has sagged under the chin line, a facelift will remove and tighten excess skin to bring out the chin. The facelift has the added benefit of rejuvenating the entire midface and neck areas. Sometimes, if the chin is naturally recessive, a chin implant will accompany the facelift in a single procedure.

Dr. Sobel may elect to use one or all three procedures described above to create the most pleasing result depending on each patient’s needs.

"After losing more than 160 pounds in 2012 I felt healthy, but my body did not match what I felt inside. Although I felt amazing, I had a lot of loose skin in my abdomen and arms. So much so that I was unable to exercise and move the way I wanted to. I also found it difficult to do my job. Then, I met Dr. Alexander Sobel and everything changed. He thoroughly understood my needs and together we came up with an action plan.

In January of 2013 Dr. Sobel performed an extended abdominoplasty and brachioplasty on me. I am elated about the results of the surgery. I have never looked or felt better in my life. Everyone I know has had “j aw dropping” moments when they have seen me after my surgeries.

What impressed me about Anderson Sobel Cosmetic Surgery is that they listened to my needs in a kind, caring and compassionate Way. They were very professional and outlined realistic goals for my outcome. Their staff is top notch. They spent whatever time was necessary to address any and all of my concerns. I felt welcome and important to them at all times. Dr Sobel is the most amazing and talented surgeon l have ever met.

I carry a stack of Dr. Sobel’s business cards with me at all times. I give them to everyone that says “I want what you have”. I always tell everyone that my Weight loss was life changing but Dr. Sobel changed my life."
