Facial proportions define an aesthetic face. If you’re feeling as though your chin isn’t complementing your appearance in the way you’d like, a Genioplasty or Chin Surgery may very well be the perfect solution for you. Dr. Mark Fisher is uniquely trained in craniofacial surgery to offer both chin implants and chin bone surgery to restore your facial harmony and balance your facial appearance.
Enjoy an Elegantly Sculpted Chin
Your chin should frame your lower face in a way that adds to your overall sense of facial harmony, but this isn’t always the case. If you’re feeling as though your chin could better contribute to your sense of facial symmetry, a genioplasty can adjust its size and shape in either direction, creating a look that enables you to feel as confident and attractive as you deserve.

When to Consider Chin Surgery
A genioplasty (chin surgery) can either enlarge your chin or decrease its size, depending on what type of change will better contribute to an even and attractive sense of facial balance. During your consultation, Dr. Fisher will work with you to get to know your specific cosmetic goals. Taking your facial structure into account, he’ll be able to develop a treatment plan that sees you enjoying the outcome you’ve been looking for.
Chin augmentation is a highly effective way to address issues like:
- Weak chin
- Facial asymmetry
- Overly large chin
- Crooked appearance
Your Chin Surgery Options
As with most cosmetic surgical procedures, there is no real “one size fits all” approach to chin surgery. Some patients are interested in adding to the size of their chin, correcting a weak chin that seems a little too soft or doesn’t quite create the distinguished look they would prefer. Conversely, other patients are interested in reducing the size of their chins to correct a disproportionate or overly large look. Dr. Fisher is here to help with either option, putting his extensive training in craniofacial plastic surgery to work building your ideal outcome.
An implant can be placed deep under the skin, on top of your chin bone, to augment the size and shape of your chin. This gives Dr. Fisher an impressive level of control as he builds a look that better frames the lower portion of your face. These implants are made from a synthetic material such as silicone, and Dr. Fisher also offers minimally invasive injectable treatments as an alternative option.
If you feel as though your chin is overly large, Dr. Fisher can help you with a chin reduction that sculpts the look you’re after. Through a small incision made inside the mouth, excess bone is removed, and a smaller, balanced chin is sculpted.
In some cases, Dr. Fisher can actually utilize a minimally invasive and non-surgical alternative, sculpting and shaping your ideal chin without the need for surgery or any artificial implants. Dermal fillers are one way to add volume to what might be considered a weak or soft chin, while facial fat transfer is an all-natural way to accomplish very similar results.
On the Day of Your Procedure
Most chin surgery procedures take between one and two hours, depending on the specifics of your treatment and the method Dr. Fisher will be using. Before your surgery, he’ll talk you through things like incision placement, and go over the details of the actual procedure, so you’ll know exactly what to expect on the day of your surgery.
Enjoying Your Incredible New Look
After your chin augmentation, you’ll experience some swelling and discomfort, but this will fade in time. After a couple of weeks, you will be able to return to your normal routine. Dr. Fisher and his team will provide you with highly detailed aftercare instructions, so you’ll be fully informed as to what you can expect from the recovery process.
