“What Is Chin Surgery?”


When the front chin is retruded, small, or wide your facial contour may not seem well-defined and balanced. This feature emphasizes the protrusion of the mouth, unconsciously giving an upset or imbalanced impression. Depending on the patient condition, chin surgery or non-incision filler may be applicable to achieve a sophisticated chin line. The chin surgery has various surgery methods such as T-cut, genioplasty, chin implant and chin fat graft insertion.

Comparisons on Different Surgery Methods



Genioplasty & T-cut Chin Surgery Chin Implant Chin Fat Graft
When chin lengthening or forwarding are necessary, genioplasty or T-cut chin surgery allows a flexible design without using the foreign implant. Chin surgery using foreign implants allows a quick surgery (30 minutes) and a fast recovery. The chin implant can be removed when unsatisfied. When chin retrusion is not severe, autologous fat graft is a moderate alternative. Although the result is not dramatic, using the autologous fat tissues is a simple way to enhance the chin.
