What is genioplasty?

Make a slim V-line with Genioplasty

A small chin means that the tip of chin is located at the back, or it seems that there is no chin. In this case, as the boundary of lower chin and the neck is not distinct, the neck seems short. And even the mouth looks protruding. In general, a beautiful chin is located at the contact point of lower lip when connecting a line from a nose to chin, and the line linking the lip and chin should maintain a soft curve. In case of a short chin where the end of chin is a little short, complex genioplasty will not be performed. It is preferred to insert implant at the tip of chin, or to correct it through fat graft or fillers.

Ruby’s genioplasty will make your front chin advanced, will not make your chin widened, and you can expect the effect that makes your chin look naturally slim.
  • Safe!
    As genioplasty is a difficult surgery to cut the facial bone where there are lots of nerves and blood vessels, you should get surgery from experienced professional doctors. Ruby performs a surgery safely without touching nerves by precisely and exactly analyzing the face through 3D-CT.

Golden ratio for an ideal face

The upper lip is 5mm, and the lower lip is 2.5mm when connecting the end of a nose and the tip of chin.

Based on the golden ratio, we perform the surgery at the ideal angle most suitable for individual.

  • The ideal angle of a line connecting the end of a nose and the tip of chin and a horizontal line is 75~80degree
  • It is ideal that when drawing a line from the end of a nose to the philtrum, the upper lip is protruded by about 5mm, and the lower lip is protruded by about 2.5mm. Area under the lip is recessed by about 4.5mm and the most bulging area in the chin is recessed by about 3mm.

Self-diagnosis of a small chin

  • The length of a chin is shorter than that of forehead or a nose from the side.
  • The end of chin is recessed and the lower chin looks thick.
  • Mouth looks protruding due to a small chin.
  • The front chin looks straight from the front.
  • The boundary of a neck and the chin line is not clear.
  • Sometimes people tell me to look dissatisfied or blank.

The effect of genioplasty appears more clearly from the side as well as from the front.

Maintain golden ratio of the front and the side.
Surgery is performed with the golden ratio that will make the most natural and beautiful chin from both front and side considering the size of front chin.
Improved Impression on the whole face.
As the surgery improve the length and shape of the whole face, you can enjoy the effect to change the image of the whole face only through genioplasty.
Natural volume and V-line.
In case of fat graft on chin, only purified fat is used to maintain the effect for a long time. And as fine fat cells are arranged evenly, it will make more natural V-line face.
Maintains volume of front chin permanently.
In case of correcting the short chin using implant, face contouring is maintained as it is before surgery, and you can expect a permanent effect as there is no problem such as deviated chin or reduced volume.

Surgical method

Methods to correct a short chin include fat graft, the use of implant, and a method to cut the bone. In case of fat graft, autologous fat is used instead of implant, which will cause less feeling of irritation. And implant can be inserted through simple anesthesia instead of general anesthesia.
The advancement surgery uses a method to cut and bring together the bone at the end of chin horizontally and to fix and correct it with a metal plate or screws. As this surgery cuts the whole chinbone and moves it forwards, the shape is natural and the neck line become more beautiful.

Fat Graft on chin

It collects unnecessary fats from body parts such as thigh or abdomen, implants them at the end of chin to make a shape.

Chin Implant

It secures a place where implant is located by cutting the mucous membrane at the end of chin and raising the periosteum.
And prepared implant is inserted, then fixed and stitched out.
Ruby Plastic Surgery uses implant that has been proved to be safe.


It cuts 2~3cm of mucous membrane at the end of chin, and bring together and fix the bone pieces as planned.
