Reasons to choose Genioplasty

The Procedure

How Genioplasty is Performed

  • 1

    Preoperative Assessment: Before the procedure, patients undergo a preoperative assessment, which may include a medical history review, imaging studies, and possibly dental evaluations. This ensures that the patient is in good health for surgery.
  • 2

    Anaesthesia: Genioplasty is typically performed under either local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia, depending on the complexity of the procedure and patient preferences. The choice of anaesthesia is discussed during the preoperative consultations.
  • 3

    Incision Placement: The surgeon makes incisions based on the specific type of genioplasty planned. Incisions may occur inside the mouth (intraoral) or externally beneath the chin (submental). The chosen approach minimises visible scarring.
  • 4

    Reshaping or Augmentation: Depending on the goals of the procedure, the surgeon may reshape the existing chin bone or use implants to augment its size. In augmentation cases, various implant materials may be used, such as silicone or porous polyethene.
  • 5

    Repositioning: If addressing functional issues or misalignment, the surgeon may reposition the chin bone to improve bite alignment and correct jaw-related problems.
  • 6

    Closure of Incisions: The surgeon closes the incisions using dissolvable sutures once the necessary modifications are made. The incisions are meticulously closed to promote optimal healing.
  • 7

    Swelling and Bruising: Swelling and bruising are common in the days following genioplasty. Applying cold compresses and keeping the head elevated can help minimise these effects.
