The face is one of our main communication tools. We always want it to look nice and shiny. Plastic surgery achieves the improvement of facial features giving harmony, through different types of interventions. One of those is called genioplasty.
SPECIFICALLY The TERM genioplasty MEANs CORRECTIng THE FORM OF the CHIN. The CHIN CAN EITHER BE augmented by ADDing AN IMPLANT, OR reduced.
The size of the chin affects also the image of the nose. The acquisition of an ideal profile is often not only possible with rhinoplasty. Thus, patients undergoing rhinoplasty may need to undergo genioplasty and thus the combination of those two surgeries creates the perfect profile for the patient.
The Chin can be applied from the age of about 18 years. the facial formation must be completed because the Chin is a procedure that alters total harmony.
This procedure takes from 30 minutes to 2 hours. In about a week the patient can return to normal activities.
