Good looks are associated with a balance of facial features, including the chin. A small chin may be made more prominent to restore balance by either dividing the jaw bone and sliding it forward (mandibular sliding genioplasty) or by inserting a foreign implant over the jaw bone (augment mentoplasty).
These procedures are performed through a small incision, usually placed under the chin, resulting in a small scar and often transient numbness to the lower lip/chin area.
Occasionally, it is necessary to reduce a prominent chin and this is usually more complex, involving bone and dental work requiring hospitalization and the assistance of a dentist and/or maxillofacial surgeon.
