Chin augmentation: Chin augmentation first requires an analysis of the bit (occlusion). This will help decide if it requires orthognathic (jaw bone) correction. Ultimately this may be achieved with advancing the entire lower jaw, setting back the upper jaw, braces, or advancing a portion of the chin bone with plates/wires or using implants and/or fillers. The use of neck liposuction may supplement the result as well.
