Recessed jaw/chin, sliding genioplasty or chin implant?

Chin Implant Question
There are several factors to consider when deciding between a chin implant vs orthognathic surgery. Many people are not comfortable with the notion of a permanent foreign object in their face, in which case genioplasty is an alternative. If you are ok with an implant then it would be a faster recovery and cheaper procedure to give you moderate chin projection. For many patients, though, orthognathic surgery can provide more significant projection and correct any vertical or symmetry discrepancies as needed. Essentially, both are good options for you. Good luck!
