What is Genioplasty?

Genioplasty, also known as chin surgery or chin augmentation, is a transformative procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the chin and improve overall facial harmony. This surgical technique involves reshaping or repositioning the chin bone to create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing facial profile.

Why Choose Genioplasty?

Many individuals seek genioplasty for various reasons, including:

  • Improving Facial Proportion: A well-defined chin contributes significantly to the overall balance and symmetry of the face.
  • Boosting Confidence: Enhanced facial aesthetics can lead to increased self-esteem and confidence.
  • Correcting Congenital Defects: Genioplasty can address congenital issues, such as a recessed or protruding chin.
  • Repairing Trauma: It can also be used to correct deformities resulting from injury or trauma.
