Chin Augmentation / Genioplasty

Face Procedures

Chin augmentation, or genioplasty, is a surgical procedure which alters the position and shape of the chin to improve facial contour and balance. Genioplasty surgery can be performed using an implant or by repositioning the bone. Chin augmentation is commonly performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty or facelift surgery, as improving the chin contour can significantly improve the appearance of the nose and neck.

How is chin augmentation performed?

Chin augmentation can be performed via a small incision beneath the chin or by an incision inside the lower lip.

Am I a good candidate for chin augmentation?

Dr. Vaca will perform a thorough facial analysis to determine if chin augmentation would improve your facial profile and proportions. Good candidates for surgery are in overall good health and have reasonable cosmetic concerns and expectations after surgery.
