What is Chin Genioplasty Surgery?

A surgery that reshapes the lower face, chin genioplasty surgery can help correct a misshapen or less prominent chin as a standalone procedure or also when paired with another face-enhancing procedure to achieve complete facial balance.

While there are a few ways to perform chin genioplasty surgery, at Singhal Plastic Surgery we primarily utilize chin implants to restore facial symmetry and correct minor abnormalities of the lower face. As the chin can have an effect on the perceived size of the nose, chin augmentation surgery can often naturally enhance other aspects of the face as well.

During typical chin genioplasty surgery, the implant is inserted through the lower lip or through the bottom of the chin, depending on the condition and patient preference. This surgery typically takes between 30 minutes and an hour, and there may be different anesthesia options available to patients.

Doctor Singhal has extensive experience in chin genioplasty surgery and will ensure that incisions result in as little scarring as possible. Your incision options can be discussed prior to surgery.

Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Genioplasty Surgery?

Men and women who have misshapen, deformed or undefined chins may qualify for chin genioplasty surgery, as well as those who wish to achieve facial balance with multiple facial surgeries. During your consultation, Dr. Singhal will assess factors such as your health, medical history, cosmetic goals and expectations in order to determine if chin genioplasty surgery is right for you.

What is the Recovery Like?

Chin genioplasty is a relatively simple surgery that requires minimal healing and downtime. During your initial visit, Dr. Singhal will create a surgical plan based on your individual condition, and advise you on how much time you should realistically take from work and normal activities.

It is also important to follow all of the post-surgical instructions provided by Dr. Singhal after surgery in order to reduce the risk of adverse complications or infections.
