Who Can Have a Genioplasty (Chin Tip Surgery)?
Anyone with a protruding or recessed chin can have this surgery. It can be applied to all individuals whose bone development has been completed.
There is a bone structure that gives meaning to our face. A beautiful bone structure and framework are needed for having a beautiful and meaningful face. Sometimes bones cannot be adequate due to accidents, environmental problems or genetic structure. Bone problems are most commonly seen in the jawbone and mid-face bones. In such cases, the appearance is supported with synthetic implants.
With genioplasty, your face is further accentuated, balanced and proportioned. In the patients with a recessed chin, the facial profile is corrected by placing an implant. Especially in men, implants added to the chin tip provide a stronger appearance.
Are the results of genioplasty operations permanent?
Implants used for this purpose have no a limited life span, i.e. they can be used for years. If the removal of the implant is requested for any reason, it can be removed with an operation performed under local anesthesia that takes 15 minutes.
What are experienced after the surgery?
- After the procedure, swelling and rarely bruising may occur in the chin for a few days.
- The patient can go back home a few hours after genioplasty.
- The noticeable results appear immediately after the surgery.
