Genioplasty involves the correction of chin deformities through the insertion of a small prosthesis or using the body fat of the patient.
Often, a prominent nose is accompanied by a small and retracted chin. It is for this reason that on many occasions, to ensure greater harmony of the face rhinoplasty is performed at the same time as chin surgery. This is known as perfiloplasty.
