Chin Surgery: Augmentation

What is Chin Surgery: Augmentation (Genioplasty) ?

Chin surgery/genioplasty  is plastic surgery procedure also called Chin Augmentation, Chin Correction, Chin Sculpting, or Chin Implan, which corrects receding chins, chin misalignment or chin excess.

Reshaping the chin can be accomplished either by using chin implants or by repositioning the bone supporting the chin.

Well defined facial features are the most important traits of physical beauty. Visible contours and natural angles that are proportionate all create balance in your face and a more attractive appearance. Facial aesthetics is based on proportions and a balance between the forehead, nose and chin such as the ‘Rule of thirds’‘. The chin therefore plays an important part in the facial equation.

For a Chin Augmentation, the incisions are made inside your mouth so there will be no visible ugly scars. In Sliding Chin Genioplasty, Sliding your bony chin along with adding or subtracting bone from the chin region to either increase or decrease the facial height or projection is a better option for chin enhancement. The bony parts are secured with titanium plates and screws.

Deciding on Chin Surgery: Augmentation (Genioplasty) 

Genioplasty is best for patients who are otherwise in good health, without active diseases or serious, pre-existing medical conditions.

Consulting a qualified plastic surgeon will enable you to choose the best treatment plan for your condition and your goals.

Genioplasty can be effective for patients with a small or receding chin. A chin that seems too small in proportion to other facial features can make the nose appear overly long. Plastic surgeons frequently use chin implants to balance the features of a younger patient or may use genioplasty in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure in a more mature patient.

Reshaping the chin can be accomplished either by using chin implants or by repositioning the bone supporting the chin.

Genioplasty is frequently combined with liposuction of the neck, nose surgery (rhinoplasty), a neck lift or laser skin resurfacing.
