As with most surgeries, there are risks involved with chin reduction surgery, which means that not everyone is suitable for it. Although this can be aggravating the guidelines are put into place to ensure that you are safe.

Suitable Candidates for Chin Reduction Surgery

The ideal candidates for chin reduction surgery have a large chin but their teeth are well aligned. This means that if you are undergoing chin reduction surgery to correct an overbite you will need to have your teeth aligned before the surgery.

To be a suitable candidate for chin reduction surgery you will also need to be physically and mentally stable. You should also be realistic about your expectations from surgery to avoid being disappointed by the results. In order to do this you will need to have a good understanding of the procedure and what can be achieved by it before consulting a cosmetic surgeon.

Chin Reduction Surgery and Physical Health

Because chin reduction surgery is usually a cosmetic procedure, it is highly unlikely that it will be performed if you are not healthy. If you suffer from conditions that could be aggravated by surgery, no responsible surgeon will allow you to undergo cosmetic surgery.

If you suffer from a blood disorder such as haemophilia, or if you have to take anticoagulants, such as warfarin, it is unlikely that you will be able to have chin reduction surgery. This is because with any surgery, you are likely to experience a high level of blood loss and as such, surgery should be limited to necessary treatments.

It is sometimes possible to have chin reduction surgery if you have high blood pressure, however the surgery should not be performed against the advice of your GP. You should speak to your GP about the additional risks of surgery because of your blood pressure before deciding to undergo chin reduction surgery.

You should not have any cosmetic surgery if you have had a deep vein thrombosis in the past. Deep vein thrombosis can develop as a result of remaining inactive during and after surgery. Although chin reduction surgery is not as long as some operations, you are still at risk of developing a deep vein thrombosis. This can be extremely dangerous as part of the blood clot can break off causing a pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal.

Chin Reduction Surgery and Pregnancy

If you are pregnant, you will not be eligible for chin reduction surgery. Any surgery during pregnancy presents a risk to both your health, and the health of your baby. As a result of this, you should not consider undergoing any unnecessary surgery until after you have had your child. It is also best to wait until after you have stopped nursing to have chin reduction surgery as the drugs in your bloodstream could have an effect on your baby. If you are breast- feeding and would like chin reduction surgery, you should seek medical advice first.

Chin Reduction Surgery and Mental Health

Mental health is a major issue when it comes to deciding if someone is eligible for any cosmetic surgery. This is as much the case in chin reduction surgery as it is in liposuction. If your surgeon feels that you want to undergo chin reduction surgery as a result of a mental instability, they will not operate on you. This measure is put in place to protect you from undergoing unnecessary procedures at the cost of your mental health. If you have mental issues involving your appearance or an addiction to cosmetic surgeries, a responsible surgeon will not perform any cosmetic surgery.
