Geino Plasty
(Cheek/ Chin Augmentation)

We use genioplasty or chin repositioning surgery to correct the following problems:

  • receding chins, or retrogenia
  • overly large or extended chins
  • chins that are too short or too tall
  • misaligned or asymmetrical chins
  • abnormal dental bite

People typically receive general anesthesia before a genioplasty procedure.

The exact operation and recovery times vary, depending on the type of genioplasty a person is undergoing and the extent of corrections a surgeon is performing.

There are two main types of genioplasty:

Sliding genioplasty

During a sliding genioplasty, we uses a saw to cut the chin bone away from the rest of the jaw.

They reposition the chin by sliding it forward or backward to correct receding or protruding chins.

We can also correct asymmetrical chins by sliding or reshaping one side of the chin to match the other.

After repositioning the chin bone, we will reattach it to the jaw with surgical screws.

Implant augmentation

We can reshape, elongate, or enhance a person’s chin by attaching 3D custom made implants around the existing chin bone.

During this procedure, we places an implant over the chin bone, securing it with screws.

Implant augmentation procedures take roughly 1 hour. Surgical implant procedures typically involve the following steps:

  1. We make a small incision either on the inside of the mouth or under the chin.
  2. We insert the implant through the incision and position it around the chin bone then attach the implant.
  3. We close the incision with stitches.

The procedure can enhance the overall look of the face by altering the position and size of the chin to complement better the other facial features, such as the forehead, cheeks, and nose.
