Genioplasty

“What Is Advanced Genioplasty”


Genioplasty or chin augmentation is surgery that enhances the appearance and shape of the chin. An Advanced Genioplasty (aka Sliding Genioplasty) is chin surgery where the chin is advanced or moved forward. A doctor will recommend this procedure if the patient has a retruded chin and profile is not defined. As this surgery is instrumental in correcting disharmony on the face it is usually considered a cosmetic procedure. It can significantly alter the facial appearance of a person and their overall profile and symmetry will be improved.

After the surgery you will need to come for check-ups everyday until the stitches are out. Stitches will be removed in 7-10 days after the surgery. Follow up check-ups: everyday until the stitches are out, and after that doctor will make an appointment according to your healing process.
Dr. Lee prefers genioplasty (arranging bone location) with a wire, rather than silicone implant because of many reasons.
  1. the bone that contacts with silicone slowly gets absorbed and eventually causes bone to go in;
  2. there is always a possibility of contraction using a silicone implant whether it is a nose or chin;
  3. there is a possibility that the silicone implant might move around and deviate.
