Genioplasty/Mentoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that is used to improve the appearance of a person’s chin. This can take the form of chin height reduction or chin rounding by osteotomy, or chin augmentation using implants.

A particular process, known as a sliding genioplasty, involves removing a horseshoe-shaped piece of the chin bone and sliding it either backwards or forwards, finally fixing it in place using titanium screws. This type of surgery is usually performed by a craniofacial or a maxillofacial surgeon.
