A chin implant is very effective at enhancing the chin and creating a more defined look to your face and profile, but these implants can sometimes be unstable and may change position. Genioplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes and shifts your own bone to create a natural-looking and stronger chin – no implant required.
This is accomplished by sliding a portion of the chin bone forward to create a more prominent projection of the chin. The portion that has been moved will be anchored to the rest of the chin to help the bones fuse together and ensure that the chin is fixed in place. Genioplasty provides incredibly stable results that will not shift or change after the surgery.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Keith Jeffords has performed genioplasty using chin implants and the patient’s own bone and has found that the latter consistently provides better results for his patients. Contact us to schedule a consultation for your genioplasty.
