Dr. Donald J. Gass, Jr. | Chin Augmentation Surgery in Chandler, AZ
Chandler, Arizona Oral Surgeon | Dr. Donald J. Gass, Jr., is a specialist in the maxillofacial surgery procedure: chin augmentation in Chandler, AZ. The chin and lower jaw are essential to an aesthetically pleasing profile. Many patients will have a recessive chin or lack of proper protrusion of the chin. At the initial office visit, Dr. Gass will evaluate your profile and facial appearance to establish a diagnosis of the problem. Surgery to improve the shape and size of the chin involves genioplasty. Genioplasty is surgical repositioning of the chin to correct under or over development.
The surgery is performed with the aid of general anesthesia. Again, the surgical approach is via the mouth, with an incision below the gums of the lower front teeth. The chin is then surgically repositioned and held in place usually with screws. A dressing will be placed to minimize swelling.
