Chin augmentation(Mentoplasty) corrects and improves a weak chin. For simple and common cases, an implant is used to enhance the contour of the chin. Incisions are made intraorally or under the the chin, depending on the surgeon's diagnosis. A pocket will then be created whereby a customized implant will be inserted and sealed in place. Often, chin augmentations are performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty to balance the enhanced facial features.
In severe cases where the patient has an overtly short and weak chin, a chin implant may not be the solution. Patients who find themselves in such a predicament may not experience enough of an improvement by merely augmenting the chin. Additional chin implants are unable to modify the vertical dimension of the chin. Therefore, in applicable circumstances sliding genioplasty would be the ideal procedure for achieving facial harmony.
Sliding Genioplasty is performed by an incision to separate the the lower chin bone horizontally shifting it forward into its new ideal position. The diagram below illustrates how the procedure is performed. To determine if you are a candidate for sliding genioplasty, contact mi-seoul for more information.
