What does the procedure involve?

Genioplasty begins with the application of local or general anesthesia. Subsequently, the cosmetic surgeon makes strategic incisions, commonly inside the mouth or at the base of the chin, to access the underlying bone. Depending on the type of genioplasty, adjustments are made using implants to increase the size of the chin or through fat transfer, using the patient's own fat.

Finally, the incision is closed, and during the recovery period, postoperative instructions are provided to ensure a successful recovery.

Types of genioplasty

Chin surgery with implants: This approach involves the use of silicone implants to provide an increase or reduction of the chin. These implants are available in various shapes and sizes, allowing for a more pronounced chin for a more masculine look or a reduced appearance for a more feminine aesthetic.


Fat transfer to the chin: In addition to implants, another option for chin augmentation is the transfer of the patient's own fat. After liposuction, the harvested fat is injected into the chin through small injections, providing a natural and personalized alternative.

Facial filler: Aesthetic medicine treatments are also an option, such as the application of facial fillers, for example, with Radiesse. This procedure helps restore lost volume in areas such as the mandibular arch, cheeks, and cheekbones, contributing to improving facial harmony non-surgically.

Frequently Asked Questions

1 What is included in the cost of a genioplasty?

Ideal candidates for mentoplasty or genioplasty are those looking to address aesthetic concerns related to the size or shape of their chin. This includes individuals with underdeveloped chins wishing to increase projection as well as those with prominent chins seeking reduction. Surgery is most suitable for adults with complete facial growth, good overall health, and realistic expectations about the results. It is essential to undergo an evaluation with a cosmetic surgeon to determine the suitability of the procedure.

Yes, it is possible to combine genioplasty with other cosmetic procedures to achieve more comprehensive and harmonious facial results. This combination often includes rhinoplasty to improve the proportion between the nose and chin, chin and neck liposuction to define the facial contour, buccal fat pad removal (bichectomy) to sculpt the jawline, and in some cases, facelift to address signs of aging. The decision to combine procedures will depend on the patient and the assessment of the cosmetic surgeon.

Chin surgery typically does not leave visible scars, as incisions are made inside the mouth. This way, the scar remains concealed and virtually invisible from the outside, preserving facial aesthetics.

After surgery, analgesic medications are recommended to control pain and antibiotics are prescribed to prevent infections.

The risks and potential complications of genioplasty include bleeding, the risk of infection, chin asymmetry, changes in skin sensitivity, pain, and the possibility of improper positioning in the case of chin implants.
