Sliding Genioplasty In severe cases where the patient has an overtly short and weak chin
Sliding Genioplasty In severe cases where the patient has an overtly short and weak chin, a chin implant may not be the solution. Patients who find themselves in such a predicament may not experience enough of an improvement by merely augmenting the chin. Additional chin implants are unable to modify the vertical dimension of the chin. Therefore, in applicable circumstances sliding genioplasty would be the ideal procedure for achieving facial harmony.
Chin Surgery Chinaugmentation(Mentoplasty) corrects and improves a weak chin.
Chin Surgery Chin augmentation (Mentoplasty) corrects and improves a weak chin. For simple and common cases, an implant is used to enhance the contour of the chin. Incisions are made intraorally or under the chin, depending on the surgeon's diagnosis. A pocket will then be created whereby a customized implant will be inserted and sealed in place. Often, chin augmentations are performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty to balance the enhanced facial features.
