I was hesitant to smile due to my pointy and prominent chin for which I went for chin surgery. Pr. Pierre thoroughly explained the genioplasty procedure and suggested reducing chin bone on the vertical length for optimal proportion along with soft tissue adjustment. I am remarkably happy to see the results, as my chin looks even better than the projected image shown initially.
My triangular, sharp, and long jawline made me very conscious. I always felt like my chin is making my face off balance, but finally, I got the chin surgery done five months back. The surgery was complicated and the recovery was long, but surprisingly, it was not painful. I cannot even express how grateful I am to MedDental Clinic for having such expertise!
I am so happy to get the genioplasty procedure done for my receding chin and facial imbalance. The surgery was quick and I did not go through horrible pain; instead, I just felt dull and a bit achy post my surgery. Pr. Pierre is unbelievably skilled in his field and I am confident to state that this is the best decision I ever made.
