Chin surgery

A chin correction is a fairly simple cosmetic operation that allows to reshape the face.

Genioplasty (or chin surgery) changes the shape and structure of the chin. This procedure will improve the appearance of your profile and make your facial features more harmonious, which will make you feel confident and good about yourself.

This plastic surgery represents the solution of choice for people with insufficient or leaky chin. A chin implant also makes it possible to camouflage a large nose or even to straighten a neck. To correct an overly pronounced or protruding chin, chin reduction improves facial balance by reshaping the chin and / or mandible by gently shaving the bone.

Cosmetic chin surgery can therefore be combined with rhinoplasty (nose correction), neck lift or face lift, for a harmonious result.


Performed under local or general anesthesia, the surgery lasts about an hour. The incision is made inside the mouth, so it is invisible.

The incision is made under the chin or in the mouth. The surgeon positions the chin implant under the chin muscles and under the periosteum of the jaw. It can also reduce the size of the chin by reshaping the bone. Then he sutures the incision.

The patient can go home immediately after the procedure.

Swelling and bruising may appear, which disappear completely after 2 weeks. A compress is applied outside for 2 days.

Social activity can be resumed after a weekend.

Will I have a scar?

How will the days after the operation unfold?
