Chin surgery

The chin plays a decisive role in facial aesthetics and helps to give us our identity. The shape of the chin has an affect on our social environment which should not be underestimated. A receding chin, double chin or other chin deformities can lead to people having a negative perception of us and a less friendly attitude.

Chin Surgery - Genioplasty (without implant)

A double chin, drooping chin or receding chin can be treated in an outpatient operation. Patients often experience a positive change after only a short time: A feeling of greater self-esteem often goes hand-in-hand with a generally improved posture, more self-assured appearance and a positive radiance.

Corrections in cases of double chin, drooping chin or receding chin

When correcting a double chin, the chin muscle is tightened. A drooping chin is the result of sagging soft tissues. Causes include slackening of the musculis mentalis (chin muscle), loss of the anterior mandibular ridge or detachment of the musculus mentalis by inserting an artificial chin implant. A drooping chin can also be eliminated by tightening the chin muscles. In the case of receding chins (also known as weak or backward recessed chin) in particular, extremely attractive results can be achieved in terms of the facial profile, thus enhancing physiognomy. A lasting result is achieved.

The treatment is painless and leaves no visible scars

The treatment is performed under anaesthesia on an outpatient basis and is painless. The patient can subsequently return home. Surgery is performed in the mouth in the anterior lower buccal fold behind the lower lip, without leaving any visible scars. Artificial chin implants are not recommended because they cause bone resorption on the chin.

We recommend having this procedure done using your own chin bone as it will result in a permanent, natural look. There are no external scars as the procedure is carried out in the oral cavity.
(The Professor Sailer Clinic does not recommend any implants because of possible bone resorption and foreign body sensation)




Facial contourings with chin augmentation, cheek augmentation and rhinopasty

Patient writes report after one year after his facial surger 2022

"I visited 9 different surgeons before I chose Professor Sailer and his team at the Sailer Klinik, and I could not be happier! I am beyond thrilled with my results. I had some rather challenging requests and Prof. Sailer and his team delivered on all of them! My results are incredible. I truly couldn’t be happier. Everything from the initial interview, to the facial planning, to the surgical procedure and recovery were top-notch. I felt like (and still feel like) I am a part of their family. He worked on several areas of my face, and each augmentation resulted in a super-model level result. I highly recommend Prof. Sailer and his clinic to anyone considering an unparalleled aesthetic result.

Patient talks about her facial surgery October 2020

My ordeal involving my congenital mandibular retrognathia began in early childhood. As a young adult, I decided to visit several doctors to explore potential therapy options. At that time, my doctors (oral and maxillo-facial surgeons as well as ENT doctors) advised me to undergo complex surgery with diverse side effects, in which two operations would be performed – a procedure whereby my jaw would have to be broken and reconstructed. I was still a medical student at the time. Merely the thought of a complex operation led me to suppress a potential solution to my suffering.

Many years later, I decided to resume my quest to find an expert in this field – with the aim of no longer simply tolerating but actually overcoming my suffering. Now using other criteria as a qualified doctor in my search for an expert, I finally found Prof. Sailer. After studying his curriculum vitae, publications and medical career, I immediately realised as a doctor that I had found not only an expert but also a luminary in this field.

My impression of Prof. Sailer was not only confirmed during my first consultation. I discovered a man whose humanity and understanding for his patients outshone his expertise. As a fellow doctor, this impression was something new and totally refreshing for me....

Patient report June 2017

Mr. Of. K. from Israel 

Mr. O. can also be contacted by phone to tell you his experience. For privacy reasons, please contact us in advance on +41 43 268 30 78.

My story has begun when I was 13 years old, when my facial bone structure was developed incorrectly. My chin and jaw have become longer, narrower with no volume, and without any masculine feature. I thought to myself that gain weight would be the solution. As I grew up, I realized that the core problem is my bone structure and it has nothing to do with fatness.

I started to explore and study the issue with the hope to find answers and solutions. I found a whole new world regarding jaw and chin correction, and facial aesthetic surgery, but in the same time it was clear that the facial bone structure field is much foggier, than breast augmentation surgery, or rhinoplasty, which you can find much more easily."Which surgeon can deal with so much requests and wishes I have"?

Patient report 2019

Mrs. S.P. from Germany

After an unsuccessful surgery I consulted many doctors in Germany in search of help.

After a lot of time searching the Internet, I learned about Prof. Sailer in Zürich 

I contacted his very sympathetic and friendly wife, Frau Dr. Sailer, and Frau Oppenberger, who was also very helpful. I travelled to Zürich with my mum.

Prof. Sailer was the most caring and considerate doctor I have ever met.

Regarding my difficult situation, he put a lot of thought into how he could help me.

Prof. Sailer is trying to root out the exact cause of the problem.

Here at his clinic you’re not just parked in a corner.

From the very first moment I felt well looked-after in Prof. Sailer’s clinic and I have complete trust in him.

They also looked after my mum very well here.

They even rang me up after I got home to find out how I was doing.

A doctor had never done that for me before.

The entire team that we talked to at the clinic was more than helpful, and very kind too.

That’s why we want to thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you and until next time.”

warm regards


Patient report about chin surgery June 2016

Mrs. A. Urwin from London writes:

I live in London and I had chin implant removal and sliding geneoplasty with Prof. Sailer. I consulted with three other surgeons before Prof. Sailer, but I wasn't happy with the quality of advice.   

Patient report chin and nose surgery, June 2016

Mrs. Maya M. Switzerland

I was unhappy with I looked from the side, my nose was to big with a hump and I had a week chin.

I discussed with my husband that I want to improve my facial appearance and believe me, my husband is not a big fan of plastic surgery and the most important for him was that I look still natural and keep my natural beauty. 

Patient report 2016


After a long ordeal, a number of cosmetic procedures which never satisfied me, always hiding as soon as someone tried to take a picture of me from the side – a variety of obstacles which lay in my path throughout the course of my life because of my jaw malposition – I decided around the middle of December 2015 to attend an advice session with Professor Hermann Sailer.
