How Can I Achieve A Dramatic Chin Augmentation?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am looking for a dramatic chin augmentation as I have a really short chin.
A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. A significant chin augmentation is generally anything north of 10 to 12mms. Your chin deficiency is probably in the range of 15mms. Such can augmentation are best done by a composite approach combining a sliding genioplasty with a chin implant overlay were the bone movement serves as the majority of the movement and the implant overlay adds to it but equally importantly keeps the chin from becoming too tapered and narrowed due to the bone movement.
