Description

Chin surgery, also known as genioplasty in cases of chin augmentation and mentoplasty in cases of chin reduction, is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to improve the shape of the chin in order to enhance facial harmony and structure. Chin surgery can be used to correct: chin misalignment, contour or shape of the chin, fat excess in the chin, and chin recession among other things. To perform a genioplastic surgery, a cosmetic plastic surgeon will make incisions in necessary areas; then implant a synthetic material into the chin in order to improve the augmentation of the chin. To perform a mentoplastic surgery, a cosmetic plastic surgeon will make incisions in necessary areas; then sculpt, remove, or reposition the existing bone to a more aesthetically pleasing shape. Chin surgery can also be recommended for patients who have decided to undergo rhinoplasty, as the new shape of the nose may create an imbalance in the face; which can be corrected by mentoplasty or genioplasty. Chin surgery may also be used to improve chewing dynamics and occlusion.
