Masculinizing Chin Recontouring (Genioplasty/Mentoplasty)
What is Chin Masculinization (Genioplasty)?
Male chins tend to be longer and squarer with a flatter base. Chin Masculinization is a procedure that increases the size of the chin in all dimensions in proportion to your features and according to your individual needs.
Chin Masculinization highly benefits those with small, narrow and/or recessed chins, who wish to have a stronger, more angular and masculine chin. Asymmetries are addressed and improved to make the chin more symmetrical.
What about Chin Implants?
Although chin implants occasionally used, we believe that placing a foreign object (an implant) into your body may be problematic and counterintuitive. Chin implants may also cause medical complications because they’re not part of your own body.
In our belief a far better option is to re-shape the underlying facial skeleton by altering or moving the chin bone.
The options for chin surgery are many: the chin can be moved forward, down, widened, or narrowed depending on your features. Therefore no silicone or other types of implants are necessary.
How is a Chin Masculinization surgery performed?
Chin Masculinization is performed under general anesthesia with incisions are made within the mouth, leaving no visible scarring.
