Chin Reduction In Thailand

Chin reduction is a cosmetic surgical technique that involves cutting down the bone through an incision in the lower gums.
Chin reduction surgery involves making an incision within the mouth (near the lower lip) or beneath the chin. The surgeon uses specialized devices to detach the bone at the tip of the chin, realign it, and remove surplus bone to get the desired contour. The tip is relocated with the remaining part of chin and secured with wires and plates. Suturing the incisions completes the surgery.
Duration of the operation:
The surgery lasts around 2-3 hours.
Post-operative Care:
To keep the wound clean after an oral incision, use antiseptic mouthwash on a regular basis during the first week. If the incision is under the chin, clean it twice daily after leaving the hospital. Keep the wound dry for 2–3 days. Start with a liquid diet, such as soups or smoothies, for the first few days. Consume soft foods for 7-10 days.
Recovery time: Most patients can return to work within a week after surgery. However, your surgeon may recommend taking 1-2 weeks off work. For roughly a week, follow a soft diet and avoid intense activities for up to two weeks. Avoid facial contact for up to 6 weeks.

Possible dangers and complications: Surgery carries inherent hazards. After chin reduction surgery, patients may have swelling for several weeks or months as the bones mend. Infection is a less prevalent concern to consider for chin plastic surgery. One potential negative effect of chin reduction surgery is minor nerve injury. Small nerve injury might lead to numbness in the lower lip and chin. Adverse reactions to anesthesia might cause difficulties, including respiratory system issues.

Chin reduction surgeries require general anesthesia.
Admission to the hospital is determined by both your wishes and your surgeon’s recommendations. Chin reduction can be performed as an outpatient procedure, in a hospital, or in an ambulatory surgery suite.

Preparation for surgery:
During consultation, a medical history (including allergies, major medical conditions, and prescriptions) will be assessed, followed by a physical examination and laboratory tests.
Blood and urine samples will be taken for pre-operative laboratory examinations. X-rays may be used to assess bone structure.
 Avoid smoking for 3-4 weeks before surgery as it disrupts circulation and slows healing.
 You may need to abstain from alcohol for a week prior to surgery and during recuperation.
 Avoid using medications including hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids, and vitamins for at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complications before surgery.
Avoid using aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines, and herbal supplements as they can cause more bleeding.
