Chin surgery, known as mentoplasty or genioplasty, reshapes the chin through the insertion of an implant or by reduction surgery on the bone. This procedure can be used to correct an abnormal formation in the chin which can cause a deformation in structure of the jaw bones. A situation like this occurs when the jawbones grow unevenly, making the face asymmetrical. Another reason that patients undergo this procedure is due to an accident or illness.
Often, a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve a certain facial proportion. The size of the chin may increase or minimize the perception of your nose's size. The jaw may also need to be realigned to correct speech or the ability to chew. Chin surgery helps set the dimensions and proportions of your face, helping you to bring form in harmonic balance.
