Chin Augmentation


Chin augmentation, also known as genioplasty, is the surgical procedure to strengthen the appearance of a receding or retruding chin. This is done using an implant or by moving the chin bone forward, thus improving chin projection and width resulting in a better balance of facial features and facial profile. Chin augmentation may be done in conjunction with other facial procedures, such as facelift or rhinoplasty.
