Chin Set Back

Chin Set Back

Chin setback, also known as genioplasty or chin reduction surgery, is a cosmetic procedure designed to reshape and reduce the prominence of the chin. It is often performed to enhance facial harmony and improve aesthetic balance, particularly for individuals with an overly prominent or protruding chin. The procedure involves repositioning the chin bone to a more desirable location, which can help achieve a more proportionate and attractive facial profile. Recovery typically involves some swelling and discomfort, but results are usually long-lasting and can significantly boost a person’s confidence and appearance.

How it works

Chin setback, or reduction genioplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing the prominence of the chin to create a more balanced facial profile. The procedure begins with a consultation where the surgeon evaluates the patient’s facial structure and discusses desired outcomes. During surgery, which is performed under general anesthesia, an incision is made either inside the mouth or under the chin to access the chin bone.

The surgeon then carefully cuts and repositions the chin bone, moving it backward to achieve the desired setback. Sometimes, a portion of the bone may be removed to further reduce chin prominence. The repositioned bone is secured using plates and screws to ensure stability.

Post-surgery, the patient may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which typically subside within a few weeks. Full recovery can take several months, during which time the new chin position settles, resulting in a more harmonious and aesthetically pleasing facial appearance. Regular follow-up visits ensure proper healing and satisfactory results.

What is a chin setback?

A chin setback, also known as reduction genioplasty, is a surgical procedure that repositions and reduces the prominence of the chin to create a more balanced facial profile.

Who is a good candidate for chin setback surgery?

Good candidates are individuals with an overly prominent chin that disrupts facial harmony. They should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and seek to enhance their facial aesthetics.

How is the procedure performed?

The procedure involves making an incision inside the mouth or under the chin to access the chin bone. The surgeon cuts and repositions the bone backward, sometimes removing a portion of it. The bone is then secured with plates and screws.

What type of anesthesia is used?

Chin setback surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia.

Will there be visible scars?

If the incision is made inside the mouth, there will be no visible scars. An external incision under the chin may leave a small, inconspicuous scar.

Blow Media have just launched our brand swanky new website and, excuse the pun, we are blown away. Scott, Ross and Rik nailed the brief we gave them and have gone above and beyond to produce a cracking website. It was also excellent value for money! The team were responsive throughout and were understanding and cool about last minute changes and design tweaking. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Best Website Design Agency in Berkshire in my view, perhaps the best in the UK. Have built 5 websites with them for clients in London, Leamington and Berkshire and every-time they knock it out the park.

This is an example of what our target clients are saying...“I have just looked at your new website….It does look amazing!!!! Very fresh, modern, vibrant and clear and simple to navigate. :)”. Exactly what we want - Scott and his team have delivered against the brief for our new website. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We have worked with Blowmedia closely to build two websites. I am not a very techy person and was daunted by the whole process, Scott explained everything to me in a way I could understand, always at the end of the phone or contactable by email and the whole process dealing with him and his team was easy and painless. The website is very professional and easy to navigate and has instantly from being launched started to attract new patients. I would highly recommend Scott and the Blowmedia's team to build any website.

I initially spoke to a member of Blow Media's team at a trade show and was very impressed with what they had to offer and with the websites they had already built which I was able to look at on my phone as I queued up to speak to somebody. The initial meeting was followed up very promptly that following week with an email and a fully detailed proposal of what they could offer which was very easy to follow, explaining fully all their services and a breakdown of their costs. I had already researched web designers thoroughly and soon realised that Blow Media, from my initial meeting and early correspondance, was the company I was going to use. From day one they were very proactive and led the whole process. Scott the MD came to see us and very quickly fully understood and visualised what we wanted to achieve perfectly. He also recommended a content writer, an SEO company, a company to do some filming in the clinic and a photographer. We used all his contacts other than the photographer which we decided to try and do ourselves but have since decided to use the photographer Blow Media initially recommended as my photography was the only thing I could criticise about my website. I would highly recommend Blow Media and their whole team, I have already instructed them to start work on our second website as our first website is already delivering and the clinic has never been busier.

Blow Media built our first website back in 2011. They worked closely with us and were able to deliver an outstanding, well presented website that enabled us to get found on search engines. After our business continued to grow we commissioned a second website in 2014 and then our third website was built in 2018. Our experience from start to finish has been fantastic With a special mention for Tracy and Scott who always make the process a joy. I would highly recommend the team and have many times already!
