Chin augmentation, also known as genioplasty or mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance or reshape the chin’s size and projection.

The chin plays a pivotal role in facial harmony, and a well-proportioned chin can significantly impact one’s overall appearance. In Singapore, chin augmentation has gained popularity as individuals seek to achieve a balanced facial profile.

Benefits of a Chin Augmentation

Facial Harmony: The chin is a defining feature of the face. A well-proportioned chin brings balance to the face, ensuring that it complements other facial features such as the nose and forehead. This harmony can enhance the overall attractiveness and symmetry of the face.

Enhanced Profile: One of the primary reasons individuals seek chin augmentation is to achieve a more defined profile. Whether the chin is recessed, protruding, or asymmetrical, chin augmentation can correct these issues, leading to a more refined and pronounced jawline and profile.

Increased Confidence: Physical appearance can significantly impact self-esteem. Achieving the desired chin shape and projection can boost an individual’s confidence, allowing them to feel more comfortable and positive about their appearance. This increased confidence can translate into various aspects of life, from social interactions to professional opportunities.

Correction of Birth Defects or Trauma: For some, chin augmentation is not just about aesthetics but about correcting birth defects or deformities caused by trauma. This procedure can restore the chin’s natural shape, improving the appearance.

Anti-Aging Benefits: As individuals age, the chin can recede or become less defined due to bone resorption and skin sagging. Chin augmentation can counteract these signs of aging, providing a more youthful appearance.

Types of Chin Augmentation Procedures


Genioplasty, often referred to as osseous genioplasty, involves surgically repositioning the chin bone. This procedure is ideal for individuals who require significant chin advancement or reduction.

Procedure: A surgeon makes an incision inside the mouth, creating a bone cut in the chin area. The chin bone segment is then moved forward or backward, and in some cases, vertically up or down, to achieve the desired position. It is then secured using plates and screws.

Benefits: Genioplasty provides permanent results and can address both cosmetic and functional issues. It allows for multi-dimensional changes to the chin.

Chin Implants

This procedure involves placing biocompatible implants to enhance the chin’s size and projection.

Procedure: An incision is made either inside the mouth or under the chin. A pocket is created in front of the chin bone and below the muscles. The implant, tailored to the desired size and shape, is then inserted into this pocket.

Benefits: Chin implants offer a less invasive approach compared to genioplasty and are ideal for individuals looking for additional projection without altering the bone structure.

Non-surgical Chin Augmentation (fillers)

This method uses injectable dermal fillers to provide temporary enhancement or reshaping of the chin.

Procedure: A qualified practitioner injects dermal fillers into specific areas of the chin to add volume, enhance projection, or correct asymmetry. The procedure is quick, often taking less than an hour.

Benefits: Non-surgical chin augmentation is ideal for individuals who are not ready for surgery or those who wish to test the aesthetic results before committing to a permanent procedure. It offers immediate results with minimal downtime.

Procedure Overview

Consultation Process

Procedure: During this session, the surgeon evaluates the patient’s facial anatomy, discusses their aesthetic goals, and recommends the most suitable chin augmentation method. Imaging techniques, such as X-rays or 3D imaging, may be used to assess the chin’s structure and plan the surgery.

Outcome: The consultation ensures that both the surgeon and the patient have a clear understanding of the procedure, expected results, and potential risks.

Pre-operative Preparations

Procedure: Patients may be advised to stop certain medications, supplements, and avoid smoking. They might undergo blood tests or other preliminary examinations to ensure they are fit for surgery. Instructions regarding eating, drinking, and medications will be provided for the day of the surgery.

Outcome: These preparations minimize surgical risks and promote faster healing.

Surgical Procedure Steps

Procedure: For genioplasty, an incision is made inside the mouth to access and reposition the chin bone. For chin implants, an incision is made either inside the mouth or under the chin to place the implant. In the case of fillers, injections are administered at specific points on the chin.

Outcome: The chin is reshaped or augmented to achieve the desired appearance.

Recovery and Post-operative Care

Procedure: After the surgery, patients might experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which usually subsides within a week. Pain relief medications and antibiotics may be prescribed. Patients are advised to keep their head elevated, avoid strenuous activities, and follow a soft diet for a few days. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor the healing process.

Outcome: Proper post-operative care ensures that the chin heals correctly, and any potential complications are addressed promptly.
