A receded chin is unattractive, particularly in men. Augmentation of the chin to achieve a more prominent and aesthetic position in line with the lips and nasal tip.

Chin augmentation, also called a genioplasty, using a silicone implant is a common surgical procedure that does not result in a scar on the face of the patient. The surgical implant can be performed under sedation as a day surgery procedure with minimal downtime. Most patients return to work after 2-3 days of rest. There is minimal bruising or swelling and there is no need to change the silicone implant even many years after the procedure.

Augmentation using cuts in the patient’s bone to shift the chin may also be done. This is a relatively more invasive procedure and involves the use of titanium plates and screws to stabilise the chin bone in the new position.

Non-surgical chin augmentation is possible with the use of either hyaluronic acid fillers or the patient’s own harvest fat that has been processed. Both are simple, non-invasive procedures that can be performed in the clinic with minimal downtime.

An overly prominent chin can also result in an unattractive appearance. This is so, whether for male or female patients; in ladies, a overly prominent or strong chin masculinises the facial appearance. Reduction of the chin is performed through an intra-oral incision with no external scars. The bone of the lower jaw may be removed and set back and fixed with titanium miniplates and screws, depending on the patient’s needs.

The procedure can be performed under sedation as a day surgery procedure with minimal downtime. Most patients return to work after 2-3 days of rest. There may be some bruising or swelling, which would resolve after 1 to 2 weeks.
