GENIOPLASTY – WHAT IS IT ?
Genioplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure carried out on the chin.
The chin is an important detail of the face, rather like the nose and the cheekbones – it adds character and a certain look. A protruding or “different” chin may prove be an issue for a person and having it altered or modified can not only restore overall harmony to the face but also improve self-confidence.
→ Genioplasty is designed for individuals who are struggling to live with the shape of their chin. No surgery can be performed until the age of 18 when the bone structure of the face is fully formed. In some cases, the patient may decide to opt for corrective surgery on both the chin and nose at the same time (this is known as a profile-plasty).
