Genioplasty, also known as chin augmentation surgery, Chin enlargement surgery, is a form of cosmetic surgery that involves repositioning or reshaping the chin to improve facial harmony. In most cases, this procedure can be performed quickly in local anesthesia. It is a day care surgery. genioplasty can be both surgical and non-surgical. In non-surgical genioplasty, fat or fillers are used to achieve desired results.
The main goal of genioplasty is to restore facial harmony. The shape of our chin has a deep impact on how our face looks and the overall contours of the face,
Because of increased awareness, availability, and safety profile, chin augmentation is becoming more and more acceptable. A study done by ASPS reported that over 14369 Chin implants were done and 16400 chin augmentation surgeries were done in the USA in 2018, which is 2.0% higher than the previous year. Women opting for chin implants were 73%, while men mainly opted for chin augmentation surgery by 58%. Reference: ASPS
The average surgeon’s fee for chin augmentation surgery cost is $3,015, while in India the is an average around Rs. 80,000- 1lakh. Reference: ASPS.

There are a number of reasons why you might consider chin augmentation:
Gender is an important factor for deciding that. As a rule, women prefer a slightly less projecting, rounder chin while men tolerate a slightly more projecting, angular chin. Remember that the height of the chin pad as well as the location and depth of the labiomental fold will affect the appearance of the chin.
Proportion of lips
The lower lip is normally fuller than the upper lip. The fullness of the lower lip determines the inclination of the lower lip, which affects the appearance of the chin.
The position of the labiomental fold contributes to the appearance of the vertical height of the chin. A high labiomental fold will make the chin appear larger, and a low labiomental fold will make the chin appear smaller and more defined. A shallow labiomental fold makes the chin appear larger because the demarcation between the lower lip and the chin pad is less well defined.
In conjunction with the labiomental fold, the inclination of the lower lip also affects one’s perception of chin size. The lower lip inclination helps to create a demarcation between the lip and the chin pad. Therefore, the more vertical the lower lip, the larger the chin appears.
Dental occlusion also affects the appearance of the lower third of the face. For example, a deep bite may contribute to lower lip eversion. It is important to assess dental occlusion and inquire about prior orthodontic or orthognathic treatment. Often orthognathic treatment and genioplasty are clubbed together.
Chin pad thickness
The chin pad is assessed by palpation. Static chin pad position is noted.
It is important to assess the size of the bony chin, especially in the case of the large chin. This is accomplished through palpation and dynamic evaluation: when smiling, a large chin due to a large bony component becomes even more pronounced, whereas a large chin due to excess soft tissue will appear better as the soft-tissue becomes effaced. Cephalograms (head x-rays) are especially useful in determining the size and shape of the bony component.
Orientation of deficiency or excess
In some patients, there is a prominent symphyseal ridge or bulky mentalis muscle which causes increased chin projection just below the labiomental fold. In some cases, bony reduction is indicated.
Chin point projection should coincide with the facial midline. Transverse chin point asymmetry should be noted.
The shape of the chin is important in preoperative planning. Women usually prefer a smaller, rounder chin while men tolerate a larger, more angular chin.
During a normal smile, the lip muscles elevate the corners of the mouth moving the chin pad superiorly. Some patients have a horizontal, non-lifting smile. Patients with a horizontal smile have unbalanced lower lip activity which causes dynamic chin pad ptosis with smiling. Dynamic mentalis muscle activity should also be assessed. Activation of the mentalis produces upward movement of the lower lip enabling us to pout. Patients with congenital or iatrogenic low mentalis origin may have excessive tooth show in repose and a limited ability to elevate the lower lip to pout.
If you are hesitant with going for a surgery, we offer non-surgical options like:
Dermal fillers provide immediate results but only last about six months. During that time, patients often decide if they’d prefer to make their results long-lasting by choosing to undergo chin implants or genioplasty. Patients may also choose to allow the temporary results from the dermal fillers to fade, returning their facial profile to its original appearance.
Fat injections provide similar results as dermal fillers. Fat is harvested from the other body area by liposuction. The harvested fat cells are then re-injected into targeted areas of your chin to achieve the best aesthetic results.
These process are non-invasive and show results immediately, but there are certain limitations for such procedures too:
The osseous genioplasty can address a wide variety of chin deformities ranging from microgenia (small chin) to macrogenia (large chin) to chin asymmetry. Moreover, osseous genioplasty avoids synthetic materials and the associated complications that can occur with a long term foreign body in body.
Mostly patients are comfortable with a subtle change. A change of 5-6mm is often considered for them. However, a change upto 10mm can be achieved by this procedure.
However, it is a major surgery done along with orthodontic (braces) treatment. It is done only in severe cases.
Chin implants can be used to reshape, enlarge, or push forward the appearance of the chin. Surgical chin augmentation involves putting various implants into the chin and adhering it to the bone.
silicone elastomer, polyethylene, hydroxyapatite,
Smooth and porous (smooth more preferred)
They are small, medium, and large sizes available.
They are in various shape, just front enhancing, with side extension, height increasing
After selecting the most appropriate shape for your need, your cosmetic surgeon will select the best match of the implant size and do a little trimming according to the best fit for you.
Indication for chin augmentation surgery are:
Not Recommended For
Osseous genioplasty is not recommended for patients with periodontal disease or patients who have long teeth with a short mandibular height.
Apart from these, some basic eligibility criteria also need to be fulfilled:
Today you get all general information on the internet. The consultation is an opportunity to ask questions regarding your concerns directly to your operating surgeon.

You should be in your optimum health for a safe and smooth recovery
Once you decide to go ahead with surgery you are advised the following:
local anaesthesia is given.
Two types: The intraoral incision (inside the mouth) is selected when muscle correction is necessary.
The submental incision provides excellent exposure and enables the operating surgeon to remove skin and/or fat tissue.
(If a silicone implant will be used, we limit the size of the dissection pocket in order to help secure the implant.)
By gently stretching this tissue, the surgeon creates a space where an implant can be inserted.
This implant, made of synthetic material that feels much like natural tissue normally found in the chin, is available in a variety of sizes and shapes. This allows custom fitting of the implant to the configurations of the patient’s face.
The doctor then makes a horizontal cut along the chin bone. If you’re getting your chin moved backward or made smaller, your doctor also cuts out a wedge of bone. Then they slide the bone forward or backward and attach screws and possibly a metal plate to ensure it stays in place.
To make your chin longer, they reattach the bone with a gap between the rest of the jaw and the chin. Bone will grow back over time and fill this gap.
There are various types of osteotomy according to the need of each individual. Mobilised bone is fixed with screw and plate.
After implantation, the surgeon uses fine sutures to close the incision. When the incision is inside the mouth, no scarring is visible. If the incision is under the chin, the scar is usually imperceptible.
A light compressive dressing of stretch tape is applied to the chin to ensure soft tissue contact with the underlying bone. The dressing is worn continuously for 4 days and then removed. Drains, if employed, are removed within 24 hours.
Ice packs can be placed on the chin for the first 48-72 hours to help decrease discomfort and swelling.
Following your surgery, your surgeon will instruct you to take antibiotics for two days. Oral stitches are absorbable, so you won’t have to return to the hospital to get them removed.
You may begin eating normally as soon as you feel you’re ready. A liquid or soft-food diet is recommended if the incision is inside the mouth. You must rinse your mouth with water or antiseptic oral rinse following every meal.
After three to five days, you can remove your wound dressings and compression tape, and return to your daily routine. Don’t exercise for the first 10 days following surgery. Don’t participate in contact sports for six to eight weeks.
You need to elevate the head of your bed if possible or use two or three pillows to sleep. This aftercare measure helps to reduce the swelling.
Avoid accidently hitting your chin against any solid objects, sleeping on your chin or vigorous exercise that could strain the chin.
You may notice swelling, redness, or bruising, which should go away after a few days.
Fortunately, when an experienced surgeon has appropriately analysed the chin problem and reviewed the patient, genioplasty can be performed on an outpatient basis with few complications.
