Sliding genioplasty is a type of maxillofacial surgery used to change the position of the chin bone, which entails horizontal sectioning of the mandible and sliding it forward (it can also be slid backward for those whose chin is 'too big', but this is rarely a problem), then anchoring it in place with titanium screws [1]
