Welcome to chinsurgery.com
Dr. Barry Zide has been a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon since 1981, has written and lectured extensively on cosmetic chin surgery, and has performed numerous corrective and reconstructive surgeries of the chin on a variety of patients. Information provided on this site is provided as a tool to guide patients considering corrective or cosmetic chin procedures, and is not intended to be substituted for consultation with a qualified medical professional such as Dr. Zide.
Men and women look best with certain types of chins. An overly projecting chin may look acceptable and strong for a male but too masculine for a woman. A small chin can make a large nose look even bigger and conversely, a large chin may even make a small nose look tiny for the face. This chin/nose relationship must be harmonious.
Surgery of the chin area usually involves inert implants or bony correction depending on the problems. Sometimes soft tissue corrections are required. All surgery must be done with precision.
