Genioplasty (chin surgery) 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. That is why on many occasions, to ensure greater harmony of the face, a rhinoplasty is performed at the same time as chin surgery. This combination is known as perfiloplasty.
