Chin Augmentation
Medical Term : Genioplasty
This is a surgical procedure to enhance the size of the chin, thus bringing the chin shape in harmony with other facial features especially the lips and nose.
  • Increases chin size
  • Brings shape in harmony with rest of the face
  • Permanent way to create a stronger chin
  • Makes the chin wider
  • Slight lengthening of the face
  • People with weak or receding chins (microgenia), but who have a normal dental bite.
  • If you are unhappy with the way your chin looks, either because of genetics or perhaps because you received a facial trauma at some point, Chin Implant can give your face and neck a more balanced look and helps to eliminate a weak, asymmetrical appearance.
Treatment Options:
Augmentation using Chin Implant: Commonest, less involved option. Implants of multiple shapes, sizes, and materials are available, and are chosen depending on the changes desired.

Augmentation Genioplasty: Surgical procedure in which we split the chin bone (mandible) at the correct point and move & position it forward to the desired point. This bone is fixed in its new position by a system of plates and screws.

Both these procedures are done at our Centre by the intra-oral route i.e. through an incision made inside your mouth between the lower lip and gum, thus leaving no tell-tale signs externally.

Augmentation with Autologous(ones own) Fat as a filler: This technique uses fat as fillers to enhance the chin region.
