Genioplasty Newport Beach

GenioplastyGenioplasty can change the size, position, and projection of the chin to achieve better facial balance and harmony. Whether your chin is too long, too short, too prominent or not prominent enough, your chin can be altered to balance the rest of your face. The two types of genioplasty include either modifying your own jaw bone or using facial implants. When your dental occlusion or teeth do not come together properly, orthognathic jaw surgery may also be necessary.

Genioplasty is often performed in combination with other procedures for facial rejuvenation. A retruding chin can be improved both by moving the chin forward with a genioplasty and/or by making the nose less prominent with a rhinoplasty. In addition, for a poorly-defined jawline, genioplasty can be combined with a face lift, neck lift, and/or facial liposuction to create a more defined, youthful jawline.
