What is Genioplasty?

Genioplasty refers to the general technique of improving chin shape, form or projection and can be performed by either cutting and repositioning the bone of the chin or using a synthetic implant. Common indications include small chin, asymmetric chin, or chin disproportionality when compared to the remainder of the face. Access to the chin can be from either inside the mouth of through a limited incision below the chin on the skin.

The Procedure

The chin and nose are intimately related: a small chin often makes the nose look disproportionately large. Chin augmentation is frequently performed at the time of rhinoplasty to improve facial balance and harmony. This combination of procedures can augment the face to make the nose look proportionally smaller.
