What Type of Chin Augmentation Procedure Do I Need After Lower Jaw Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I previously got lower jaw surgery and genioplasty for a total of 14mm of movement. I am now considering more chin augmentation either in the form of an implant or genioplasty. Please recommend best next steps, thanks.

A: Having had two bone surgeries for your current chin projection it would make the most sense to build on top of what already exists with an implant for the final chin projection effect. The two prior surgeries and the amount of movement needed have made an implant possible at this point for your secondary chin augmentation.
