Chin Surgery

Chin Surgery at Nuffield Dental Clinic Singapore

Chin Surgery or Genioplasty, is an operation carried out on the chin. This can be for advancing the chin if it is deficient, or to take it back if it is too prominent. It can be used to correct the centerline of the face if there is a left/right discrepancy between the jaws and face.

Chin surgery can address a small and deficient chin. It can also be used to make the lower face look vertically longer or shorter from the front and in profile, depending on the individual patient’s needs. Chin surgery can also, under certain circumstances, be used to camouflage a lower jaw deficient in horizontal length. There are, however, other operations also available for the latter.

A genioplasty can also be used to enhance the results of a cosmetic rhinoplasty to bring the face into full harmony. What particular operation the patient needs, however, can be discussed with a board certified Maxillofacial Surgeon, with an interest in orthognathic, facial aesthetic and cosmetic surgery.

Most surgical services at NUFFIELD DENTAL can be performed under Local Anaesthesia, General Anaesthesia or intravenous sedation. (as requested by nervous patients)
