Genioplasty (Chin Surgery)

Genioplasty is the medical name for surgery to change the construction of the chin. This can involve making it bigger or smaller, more or less protruding, or more symmetrical. The shape of the chin is also considered during assessment for rhinoplasty surgery, as symmetry and equal prominence of the nose and chin are usually recommended to people seeking aesthetic improvements.

Patients that have receding, overly large or extended, misaligned chins are the most common Genioplasty candidates. People typically undergo Genioplasty to improve the appearance of their chin and overall facial structure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Genioplasty is the medical name for surgery to change the construction of the chin. This can involve making it bigger or smaller, more or less protruding, or more symmetrical. The shape of the chin is also considered during assessment for rhinoplasty surgery, as symmetry and equal prominence of the nose and chin are usually recommended to people seeking aesthetic improvements.

It is a relatively simple procedure which involves repositioning the chin by cutting the lower jaw bone, below the roots of the teeth, through incisions made on the gum lining inside the mouth, which ensures that there is no visible scarring on the face. The chin is then placed in the desired position and reattached with metal plates and screws. This procedure has no effect on the way the patient chews and eats after the surgery as the position of the teeth will not be changed.

Chin augmentation using implants made of bone or synthetic materials is also possible using the same openings as for chin reduction surgery or by making a small cut in the skin underneath the chin.

Although most craniofacial surgeons tend to prefer using the patient’s own bone, both techniques have their merits. A decision on which one will be used is reached after consultation between surgeon and patient. X-rays of the jaws are usually performed in order to aid the planning of the operation.

Recovery time usually depends on which type of procedure was performed. In the 24 hours after the procedure, the chin will feel swollen or tight, however, the majority of patients will be able to go home the day after the surgery. The amount of swelling and bruising experienced varies case-by-case but lasts longer after procedures using the patient’s own bone. The swelling usually heals after around two weeks, although some less obvious swelling may take months to disappear. Patients can eat normally after surgery, but softer foods are recommended for the first few days.

Dr. Cone and his staff were amazing. They took such good care of me and my daughter like family. Highly recommend for adult and kids! Esther Cheung-Phillips
These guys are awesome! The personal care given by Dr. Langevin is absolutely second to none. You will feel like the only patient there Skeeter Ham
From beginning to end Dr. Langevin and his staff took care of me in the most excellent way. From scheduling all the way to post op, they never made me feel like a number but a human that was in good hands. I really appreciated the personal call from Dr. Langevin- not from his staff but from him. That is rare these days to have doctors call you themselves to check on you after surgery. I couldn't be more happy with my results. Aguerra Love
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Cone at Wellspring. Their entire staff is incredibly kind and obviously care about their patients. Crystal was so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. They did a removal of a large facial nevus for me and I am so happy with the results! The entire thing has been truly lifechanging for me. I am very grateful for Dr. Cone & his team and look forward to seeing them when I go for my follow-up visit. Kaylie Peterman
My experience so far has been amazing, even though my anxiety is over the roof when it comes to Dr's. Dr.Cone and his staff have been awesome and make me feel as comfortable as they can. I got otoplasty done and I can't wait for the final results, I do definitely recommend this place for anything else you'd like to get done. I do plan on getting other things done in the Future and without a doubt this is the place! Thank you Dr.Cone, Crystal, Brandi, & Cici you all are the best! Dori Dori
