Facial harmony relies on in large part on the symmetry, size, and balance of skeletal anatomy and features. A chin that appears too pronounced, too recessed, receding or misaligned can, to varying degrees, impact one’s facial profile and look.
To improve the position, size, shape, or alignment of the chin, a chin surgery, which known as a genioplasty, may be recommended. A genioplasty can be performed in several different ways. It all depends upon the unique requirements of the case. In order to create a more prominent chin, it can either be augmented with the placement of an implant or with the surgical advancement of the supporting bone. Likewise, a genioplasty to reduce the look of a chin that’s too pronounced or to correct the chin’s side-to-side alignment can also be performed. In some cases, a genioplasty may be provided in coordination with other cosmetic procedures or corrective jaw surgery to further enhance overall facial appearance.
Depending on a patient’s medical history, a genioplasty by itself is usually performed on an outpatient basis. Because the only incisions made are inside the lower lip, there will not be any visible scarring. Following surgery, patients are given detailed post-op instructions along with follow-up appointments to monitor progress and healing. Recovery typically takes couple of weeks.
