Chin reduction

Genioplasty

A genioplasty is an operation to move the bone of the chin into a new position. It differs from a chin implant in that it is a much more versatile operation and can be used to move the chin back ( chin reduction), to lengthen the chin, to shorten the chin, to narrow the chin and to correct asymmetry of the chin. It is usually performed under general anaesthetic and often requires a one night stay in hospital.
