Chin Augmentation (genioplasty)
Chin Augmentation Surgery in Atlanta, GA
Enhancing the size or shape of your chin can help balance the features of your face – especially if you have a weak or receding chin, which you may have been born with or that occurs as a result of an overbite (when your upper jaw overlaps and is out of alignment with your lower jaw). An implant may be used during chin augmentation. Alternatively, your plastic surgeon may reposition the bones of your lower jaw.
Genioplasty/Chin Augmentation Before & After
Dr. Greg Mackay has specialized training in Maxillofacial plastic surgery. He performs both sliding genioplasties and chin augmentations. A sliding genioplasty consists of repositioning or reshaping the chin to create facial symmetry and a stronger jaw line. Sometimes, in order to achieve the best result, Dr. Mackay places a chin implant for further projection. This procedure should only be performed by an experienced surgeon with training in facial plastic surgery.
