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:Benefits of chin augmentation

  • Strengthen a weak, underdeveloped chin.
  • Increase the height or width of the chin
  • Produce a more attractive , well defined jawline.
  • Minimize the appearance of jowls or a double chin
  • Bring balance to the nose and chin
  • Change the appearance of chin dimpling

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.

1. Lower Face Evaluations:

A) Lip Evaluation

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.

B) Labiomental Fold

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.

C) Inclination of the Lower Lip

In conjunction with the labiodental 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.

D) Occlusion

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.

2.  Chin Evaluation

Chin pad thickness

The chin pad is assessed by palpation. Static chin pad position is noted.

Bony component

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.

  • Dynamic assessment

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:

1. Dermal Fillers:

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.

2. Fat Injections:

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.

3. Limitations of Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation:

These processes are non-invasive and show results immediately, but there are certain limitations to such procedures too:

  • Temporary results- last up to 9-12 months
  • Only effective in doing minor changes
  • Cannot fix every problem
  • Often done along with surgery for desired results.

1. Chin Osteotomy

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.

2. Chin Implants

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.

  • Different material

silicone elastomer, polyethylene, hydroxyapatite,

  • Different texture  

Smooth and porous (smooth more preferred)

  • Different size  

They are small, medium, and large sizes available.

  • Different shape  

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:

  • Some patients opt for Genioplasty to either get their chins enhanced or reduced.
  • In rare instances, people have congenital malformations of the chin or asymmetry of the chin.
  • To fix post traumatic deformity.
  • People who decide to have a gender reassignment surgery sometimes undergo this process as a part of the transition process.
  • an overly projected chin requiring bony reduction
  • lengthening or shortening in vertical dimension (too tall or too short of a chin) as well as transverse asymmetries.

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:

  • Above the age of 18 years
  • Good health without any unfavourable conditions that could complicate surgery such as restricted blood flow, coronary artery disease, uncontrolled diabetes, or a weak immune system.
  • A Clear goal of the chin augmentation surgery
  • Realistic expectations for results
  • You know the recovery, risk and result and limitations of the surgery
  • An emotionally Stable mind-set is required to have the best results

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.

It is good to make a list of important questions before proceeding for the consultation step. So you won’t miss addressing any of your concerns. The patient care coordinator is always there to help you.

Your Surgeon Will Evaluate:

  • the shape of the chin
  • the vertical height of the chin
  • the inclination from the lower lip white roll to the labiomental fold
  • the thickness of the chin pad
  • The chin pad takes off below the fold.
  • the chin pad percentage as a function of the height of labiomental fold
  • static ptosis
  • dynamic pad ptosis with smile

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:

  1. Complete your body check-up test
  2. Any medical condition like diabetes or hypertension should be under control.
  3. Quit smoking as advised by the surgeon
  4. Any nutritional support or on-counter medicineshould be stopped
  5. You will be given detail instruction before surgery
  6. The cosmetic surgery team is always there to guide you in case of any confusion.

2. On Admission at Cosmetic Surgery Center

A)  Please inform me about:

  1. Recent illness like a common cold, fever, urinary tract infection, or any other seasonal illness
  2. Your medical ailments like blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, thyroid, or any other illness
  3. Any ongoing medication
  4. History of any major illness, hospitalization, trauma, or surgery
  5. Drug or any other allergy
  6. Family history of any significant illness like blood pressure, diabetes, cardiac ailment, cancer, G 6 PD deficiency, thyroid, thalassemia, bleeding disorder, or any other illness.

B) The Cosmetic Surgeon Will:

  • Listen to your concerns and explain to you again about the surgery
  • Discuss your goalof hair transplant surgery
  • Your physical fitness is also evaluated
  • Will mark the operative area with your active participation. This is useful as guidelines in the procedure.
  • Preoperative medications will be started.
  • The preoperative formalities are done.

3.   In Operation Theater

A) Anaesthesia

 local anaesthesia is given.

B) Incision

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.)

C) Pocket Dissection

By gently stretching this tissue, the surgeon creates a space where an implant can be inserted.

D) Implant Placement and Fixation

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.


E) Osteotomy and Fixation

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.

F)  Closure:

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.

G) Immediate Recovery

  • There will be swelling, bruising, redness and discomfort in the operated area.
  • Your doctor will prescribe you medicines to recover.
  • Use ice packs in the operated area to get some relief from swelling and discomfort.
  • You might feel heaviness in the lower lip, inside of cheeks and sides of tongue. This is due to anesthesia. It takes 2-6 hours for the anesthesia to wear off. Try not to cut your lips and tongue during that time.
  • You might also feel difficulty in talking initially because of anesthesia. Everything will come to normal as soon as the effect wears off.

  • The final results of a chin augmentation procedure can take upto 3 months to show as the swelling subsides.
  • The effect of the surgery is permanent and lasts for a lifetime, though a patient can opt for a revision.

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 accidentally 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.

  • Nerve injury: nerve injured during the incision. (rare)
  • The mandibular tooth roots can be injured during the osteotomy or screw placement.
  • Hematomas
  • The inadequate genial fixation will result in either relapse or asymmetries. We avoid this complication by ensuring satisfactory lag screw fixation on the table rather than relying on postoperative dressings and body healing.
  • Infection of the surgical site
  • Prolonged bleeding
  • Numbness: nerve injury can lead to permanent or temporary numbness
