This patient complained of a weak chin.  The cosmetic deformity is better appreciated on quarter and side views.

The deformity was due to a combination of anatomic factors.  The patient had good occlusion (teeth fit together well), but the chin was under developed.  She had a moderate fat pad causing poor definition between the neck and jay.  Skin tone was good.  The patient had a trachea that was positioned in an anterior position, which further obscured the neck definition (nothing could be done about this).  A Medpor extended implant was used to correct the appearance of the underdeveloped chin, and approximately 250 cc’s were removed using liposuction.  Patient is seen 2 months postop.
