Chin implant surgery: This chin surgery is performed by inserting an implant under the patient’s skin of the chin. The surgeon inserts the implants inside the mouth or under the chin.
Chin reduction surgery:This kind of chin surgery used when a protruding or and excessively large chin is needed to be reduced. It is performed by two methods, direct chin reduction surgery (the doctor makes a submental or intraoral incision and removes the excess bone) and the other method is the sliding genioplasty chin reduction (the surgeon cuts through the jawbone to remove a part of the bone, the bone segment is then moved backward.)
