Sliding Genioplasty

A type of cosmetic surgery that is used to improve the appearance of your chin due to a deformity, trauma or disease is known as sliding genioplasty. Performed through an intraoral or intradermal incision, it involves cutting the chin bone and repositioning it so that the face is symmetrical and evenly balanced.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons at Jefferson will perform sliding genioplasty to correct your facial asymmetry and/or disproportion and provide you with after-care instructions.
