Can your own bone be used for chin augmentation? I'm worried about having a reaction to artificial implants. Is it possible to reshape my own bone for chin augmentation? .

In brief: Sliding genioplasty

Of course. This is called sliding genioplasty, a method which I prefer. Your own bone is repositioned in a way that you like and screws are used to secure

In brief: You

You can use your own chin bone to augment the chin area.
The procedure is called a sliding genioplasty and involves making a cut in the chin bone, advancing it forward and then securing it in place. I usually secure the bone with a titanium plate that keeps the bone in the proper position.
