Are you looking for a way to improve the balance and proportion of your facial features? Genioplasty, also known as chin implant surgery or chin augmentation, can significantly enhance the contours and shape of your face, adding definition and femininity to your features. At the Wentworth Clinic, we specialise in chin implant surgery to help enhance your natural beauty.
What’s the difference between genioplasty and chin implant surgery?
- Genioplasty: the surgical correction of the chin, known as ‘sliding genioplasty’, and a modified technique called, ‘box genioplasty’.
- Chin implants or chin augmentation, in which a silicone-based implant is used to achieve the desired chin shape and a more balanced and pleasing facial appearance.
Can you combine chin implant surgery with other facial surgeries?
Yes you can. It is very common for our patients to combine chin surgery with other aesthetic procedures, such as a cosmetic facelift, brow lift, or nose correction (rhinoplasty), in order to obtain the most desired outcome.
Are there different types of genioplasty?
There are two types of genioplasty: Box Genioplasty which is the preferred technique performed by Professor Ilankovan here at the Wentworth Clinic, and sliding genioplasty. One of the major benefits of Box genioplasty is that it can be performed under local anaesthetic, resulting in fewer complications or side effects and faster recovery.

Initial consultation with our plastic surgeon
At your one-on-one consultation with our plastic surgeon, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss what you want from your chin surgery. Professor Ilankovan will examine your facial profile, and determine the best way to achieve the final look you desire, resulting in a well-balanced, evenly proportioned face.
During your consultation, you will be fully informed about what’s involved with your Genioplasty or chin implant procedure as well as being advised of the benefits and any complications that could occur.
