Chin Augmentation/reduction (Genioplasty)
Genioplasty/Mentoplasty is a kind of aesthetic surgery that is used to boost the appearance of a person’s chin. This can take the proper execution of chin height decrease, chin rounding by osteotomy, or chin augmentation using implants.
A particular process, called a sliding genioplasty, involves mobilizing a horseshoe-shaped little bit of the bottom of the prominent chin bone by osteotomy and sliding it possibly backward or forwards, ultimately repairing it set up with a titanium step plate using titanium screws. This kind of surgery is usually conducted by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a plastic surgeon.
Chin augmentation using surgical implants may alter the main structure of the facial skin, providing greater stability to the skin features. The specific medical terms mentoplasty and genioplasty are accustomed to referring to the decrease and supplement of material to a patient’s chin. This can take the proper execution of chin height decrease, chin rounding by osteotomy, or chin augmentation using implants.
Chin augmentation may be performed by manipulation of the jaw bone (mandible), and augmentation using that approach usually provides a far more extraordinary correction than with the utilization of prosthetic implants.
Chin augmentation continues to be popular as it is just a relatively simple operation for the patient while producing apparent improvements in the silhouette of the face.
