When is a genioplasty appropriate?
A genioplasty is designed to correct or reshape the profile of the chin and to obtain better harmony between facial features. Typical issues involve a chin that is receding or weak, or the opposite, a protruding or jutting out chin. After a very thorough analysis of the overall facial structure, the appropriate surgical route is determined: reshaping the bone structure or inserting an implant. Aesthetic and plastic surgeon Dr Merle can help to correct these kinds of imperfections and obtain a harmonious result, while meeting your expectations and respecting your individuality. A genioplasty procedure can be performed from the age of 18 years.
