Facial ContouringCHIN CORRECTION

A recessed chin can be seen with an overbite where the lower jaw is underdeveloped. Usually, it is noticeable from the front and/or profile view. There are mainly two ways to fix this: one is implant insertion and the other is sliding genioplasty.

Chin Correction can Benefit

  1. 1. People with an underdeveloped chin
  2. 2. People with an overbite due to a recessed chin
  3. 3. Males who want to look more masculine

How is Chin Correction Performed?

  • a. Implant Insertion
    An incision is made through the mucous membrane of the mouth to the lower jawbone where a silicon implant is inserted. This method is simple and it only takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.

  • b. Sliding Genioplasty
    This method is required when the jaw position and development are normal, but only the chin is recessed. A horizontal cut is made on the chin bone and the bone is moved either forward or backward to place the chin in the desired position. Titanium plates and screws are used to fix the chin in place.
