If you can not change your prominent chin in your country, why not travel to another country like Iran? In fact, it's not just about price. This is also true for many other things, such as getting more natural results, fewer visible scars, shorter recovery times, and higher quality medical care .


If your sunken chin makes your nose look bigger or you are obsessed with deforming your chin, genioplasty or chin surgery is a good option for you. Iran, with its effective and cost-effective options for chin deformity, is a great destination for health tourists who want to have chin deformity surgery. Thanks to the development of medical tourism, cosmetic surgery such as genioplasty is no longer a high-risk, expensive and inaccessible procedure. therefore we dedicate this post to clarifying chin surgery in Iran .

first of all, lets define genioplasty:

G enioplasty is a form of cosmetic surgery that involves repositioning or reshaping the chin to improve facial harmony.
There are several ways to conduct this procedure:

1. Advancement, or moving the chin forward
2. Pushback, or moving the chin backward
3. Side-to-side, which can help with asymmetrical chins
4. Vertical changes, such as making the chin longer or shorter

 When surgery is performed on a small or sunken chin, it is called chin augmentation. When the goal of chin reduction surgery is prominent, this procedure is called chin reduction. Depending on the type of surgery, plastic or maxillofacial surgeons may perform the surgery. This procedure will also vary depending on the type of improvement your chin needs. Oral-maxillofacial surgeons with specific training and experience in treating the head, face, mouth, and jaw typically perform genioplasty procedures. However, plastic surgeons can also perform this type of surgery if they have the necessary training and experience.


The cost of chin reconstruction surgery depends on the type of surgery you have to perform. The cost of chin implantation in Iran is from 1500 to 3000 dollars. Bone genioplasty or chin augmentation with bone surgery is much more expensive, from $ 4,000 to $ 5,000 because it is a more complicated procedure. In addition, if in Iran you choose to enlarge the chin with skin filler or fat transfer, the price will be reduced between $ 500 to $ 700. The cost of your genioplasty operation in Iran is about 2 times less than the cost you have to pay in other countries of the world. For example, chin implants in the United States or the United Kingdom cost between $ 3,000 and $ 6,000. The price could be as high as $ 7,000 or more if chin augmentation surgery is performed in these countries .

How is chin implant surgery performed in iran?

Chin implant surgery is usually an outpatient procedure, performed using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. A small incision is made either underneath the chin or inside the mouth. Through this incision, the cosmetic surgeon creates space for the chin implant and fits it around the chin bone.Chin implant surgery alone typically takes less than 1 hour to perform; however, if you are having additional procedures, operating time will increase accordingly. Following surgery, the incision is closed with sutures and the chin may be bandaged.

What does a chin implant look like?

Chin implants are small, solid devices made from a biocompatible material, usually silicone, which has been molded to fit around a patient’s chin bone. Chin implants vary in size and contour; your cosmetic surgeon will help you choose an implant that will achieve your desired degree of enhancement and provide the most natural looking res ult.

When inserted, chin implants feel very similar to a natural chin bone, and when performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon, it is usually impossible to tell that a patient has had chin augmentation .


There are Several types of genioplasty: sliding genioplasty,Dermal fillers, Fat transfer and chin implants. These ways are shortly explained below:

Sliding genioplasty:
In a sliding genioplasty, a surgeon uses a saw to cut the chin bone away from the rest of the jaw and move it to correct a chin deficiency. This is also called an osseous genioplasty.This type of genioplasty is recommended for people with severe retrogenia, or people whose chin is too far back in relation to the rest of their face. It can also help with correcting chins that are pushed too far forward and are too long.

Chin implants:
Chin implants can be used to reshape, enlarge, or push forward the appearance of the chin. This can be accomplished via surgery or injection.Surgical chin augmentation involves implanting a plastic material into the chin and adhering it to the bone. Alloplastic implants (those made from synthetic materials) are the most common.Nonsurgical chin augmentation involves using needles to inject fillers, such as body fat, to enhance the appearance of the chin.

Dermal fillers:
For those who are looking for a non-surgical solution to add harmony to their face, dermal fillers may be a good option. With injecting dermal fillers beneath the chin’s skin, the jawline and chin will be augmented.This method does not bring long-lasting results. The augmentation results last for 6-12 months. 

Fat transfer:
Fat transfer is introduced as an alternative to the chin implant. In this procedure, the surgeon uses the patient’s own fat, usually taken from another part of the body with excess fat like abdomen, to bring the chin into better proportion with the rest of the face. The drawback of this method is that it’s a temporary solution and usually it lasts for 2-3 years.

Recovering after chin implant surgery

Following your surgery, your surgeon will instruct you to take oral antibiotics for two days. Oral stitches are absorbable, so you won’t have to return to the hospital to get them removed.You may begin eating normally as soon as you feel you’re ready. A liquid or soft-food diet is recommended. You must rinse your mouth with water or antiseptic oral rinse following every meal.After three to five days, you can remove your wound dressings and compression tape, and return to your daily routine. Don’t exercise for the first 10 days following surgery. Don’t participate in contact sports for six to eight weeks.You may notice swelling, redness, or bruising, which should go away after a few days.
