Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs chin reduction for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.

Your chin plays a key role in balancing your facial features. Having a chin that is too large for your face makes your nose and other areas appear too small. Chin reduction reduces and re-shapes your chin, improving the overall proportions of your face. Your other facial features and contours become more prominent, giving you a more attractive appearance.

Making the Decision for Chin Reduction

Because your chin plays such a critical role in balancing your face, you should choose a qualified facial plastic surgeon for your chin reduction. Dr. Majmundar is double board certified in otolaryngology – head neck surgery, as well as facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. His experience and education means that he provides you with the highest quality care. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Majmundar examines your chin and face to determine the best treatment plan. He also discusses the outcomes of the procedure so that you have realistic expectations of your chin reduction. We perform all of our surgeries in accredited outpatient surgery centers, and we only use board certified MD anesthesiologists for your safety.

What to Expect After the Surgery

After your surgery, Dr. Majmundar places a dressing over your chin. You wear the dressing for up to three days. Recovery from chin reduction involves the healing of your chin bone. You may experience tenderness, and chewing your food or talking may cause some discomfort. You may also have swelling for up to three months. As you heal, you may feel a tightening sensation in your chin area. This is a normal part of the healing process and should resolve within one week. You should avoid strenuous activities for three weeks, but you can resume your normal, lighter activities ten days after your chin reduction. The risks of chin reduction include nerve damage, which is why you should trust your chin reduction to the experience and expertise of Dr. Majmundar.

Understanding the Surgery

The location of the incision for your chin reduction depends on the extent of your chin reduction. In most cases, the incision is made inside your mouth near your lower lip, or under your chin. The bone from the tip of your chin is removed, and the remaining bone is re-shaped and contoured. The bone tip is replaced and held in place with wires or plates, and the incision is closed with sutures.

Practice Update re: COVID-19 situation

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the corona virus, we have taken the following additional measures to protect our patients:

  1. Until April 30, 2020, we are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for all new patients.
  2. Our teams are receiving ongoing briefings, trainings, and enhanced operating protocols as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
  3. We are introducing the “No ‘waiting’ waiting room”. In general, we are reducing waiting times; but also, as a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our larger size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing and the number of individuals in each reception area.
  4. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  5. We are asking all patients and staff members to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer when entering the office and exam rooms.
  6. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we are not subject to actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  7. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until mid-April.
  8. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the corona virus
  9. We are instructing staff to welcome our patients with a nod or wave instead of fist bumps, elbow bumps, or handshakes.
  10. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please cancel and reschedule your appointments. We advise you to call your family doctor if you have any of these symptoms. Also, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the corona virus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from the time of your visit.
  11. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
