Chin Augmentation Overview

A genioplasty can be performed using an implant or using the existing chin bone. Chin implants are made of silicone or high-density porous polyethylene. They are placed on top of the chin bone between the bone and the overlying soft tissue. An osseous (bone) genioplasty or “sliding genioplasty” uses the patient’s existing chin bone. A sliding genioplasty is done by accessing the chin bone through an incision inside the mouth. The bone is then cut horizontally below the teeth and slid forward and/or downward into the desired location and held there with a plate and screws. Each technique has its advantages and disadvantages. Dr. Butler, Dr. Patterson, or Dr. Leveque can help decide which technique is best for you.
