A Plastic Surgery Option for Individuals With a Recessed or Small Chin

Beauty portrait of young Asian women on light and shadow background A small, recessed, or straight chin can impact one’s confidence. Without a truly defined chin, patients may feel as though there are improper contours. They may find that they struggle with the appearance of their profile due to a weak chin or even the start of a double chin with excess fat. Dr. Thomas Romo III of Romo Plastic Surgery in New York, NY, can help. Along with procedures such as liposuction for the chin and neck, he may also recommend genioplasty, a plastic surgery option for men and women who are seeking a more defined and refined chin and jaw.

What Is Genioplasty?

Genioplasty, also known as chin augmentation, is a surgery that reshapes the chin by augmenting, reducing, or changing its size and shape. It can change the projection of the chin and improve facial balance. The goal of genioplasty is to increase your self-confidence by creating harmony between your facial features.

How Is the Genioplasty Procedure Performed?

Genioplasty may be done either through open surgery, where an incision is made in the lower lip or through an incision made inside of the mouth.

The results of genioplasty are often permanent, but additional procedures may be required for maintenance over time, especially as patients age and experience the sagging of the skin along the jawline that can contribute to changes in the shape and size of the chin area.
