Your Cure for an Over-Projecting Chin

Having a strong chin is great. But having a chin that overpowers your other features is not ideal. It’s the kind of chin that sticks out past your lower lip in profile pictures, like a boat anchor for the eyes. Or it seems “droopy” and your kids (or grandkids) like to use it as a joystick.

Chin reduction surgery in Los Angeles permanently cures the issue of too much chin! Let the rest of your features shine in symmetry and in proportion, and allow your face to seem less elongated by that oversized chin. With chin reduction surgery, you might discover a more frequent smile right above it!

Benefits of Chin Reduction in Los Angeles

Facial Symmetry

Chin reduction can keep your chin from drawing everyone’s attention, and instead it works in harmony to shape the face in balance with your features.


A chin reduction can help tighten and smooth out the skin around the cheeks, jawline, and neck for a refreshed, more youthful look.

Long Lasting

With a healthy lifestyle, a chin reduction is permanent and will not require any future adjustments or procedures when performed by a skilled surgeon.

The Process for Chin Reduction Surgery in Los Angeles

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this one-on-one, they’ll discuss your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. If your provider determines that a chin reduction is the most appropriate course of action, your surgery can be scheduled, and you’ll be filled in on the pre-surgery preparation details.



Also called a “mentoplasty” or “genioplasty,” your chin reduction is performed under general anesthesia. You should not feel any pain or discomfort during your procedure. Once ready, your Younique surgeon will make minimal incisions, allowing us to remove part of the bone in your chin. We may also adjust your upper and lower jaw and soft tissues for bite patterns and aesthetic changes.

The 1-hour procedure results in a quick recovery with little to no complications in most cases. Chin reduction surgery in Los Angeles can redefine how you see yourself and help improve your confidence and self-esteem, all while giving you a more youthful appearance.



Most people start feeling better after 1 week when the pain and inflammation begin subsiding. You may still have restrictions on dieting or exercise. However, you should be able to resume work shortly after a chin reduction with scheduled follow-up appointments.
