An Advanced Genioplasty (aka Sliding Genioplasty) is chin surgery where the chin is advanced or moved forward.

As this surgery is instrumental in correcting disharmony on the face it is usually considered a cosmetic procedure. It can significantly alter the facial appearance of a person and their overall profile and symmetry will be improved.
