What is a genioplasty?
Genioplasty in Turkey is a surgical procedure of the chin in which, by modifying the chin, the patient’s features are improved and harmonized, especially the profile.
The face is the result of the composition of different structures. One of the most important structures of the face, along with the nose, is the chin.
Depending on the projection and shape of the chin and its relationship with the rest of the facial structures, the facial aesthetic result can be more or less harmonious.
Chin surgery gives the face attractive features and improves the profile of the face. It is a simple technique with excellent results.
The bony reliefs of the jaw at the level of the chin and upper jaw have special relevance within the facial structure. The most common techniques are to increase or decrease the projection of the chin.
An insufficient chin structure distorts the facial plane and the contour of the mouth, as well as shortening the depth of the neck. Aesthetic correction of these alterations, especially chin augmentation, is often associated with other procedures such as rhinoplasty or a facelift.
Candidates for genioplasty in Turkey
Genioplasty in Turkey is indicated for those who have a chin that is too receding (hypomentonism) or excessively prominent (hypermentonism), which produces an imbalance and disharmony in the structure of the face.
What does genioplasty consist of?
In the case of wanting to increase the projection of the chin, genioplasty is performed in Istanbul through an incision inside the mouth or through a skin incision under the chin. An implant is inserted to increase the projection of the chin and thus improve its relationship with other structures, especially the lip and nose.
Genioplasty is also indicated to reduce an excessively prominent chin and soften the features. In this case, the chin structure is modified by means of a small osteotomy. This procedure does not require prostheses, only a small titanium plate to temporarily stabilise the modification of the bone.
This surgery is performed under local sedation and without hospitalisation.
Postoperative period and recovery
Once the surgery is over, the patient returns home with a bandage to keep the prosthesis immobilised and to protect it from possible trauma. Pain is rare, but if it does occur, it will be treated with painkillers.
Scars in a genioplasty
To avoid visible scars, an incision is made in the inner mouth area and in some cases under the chin. In any case, the scars are absolutely imperceptible.
There are no major contraindications for this treatment.
Risks associated with genioplasty
All surgery carries some risks that you should be aware of. In the case of mentoplasty, complications may arise, especially in the case of prostheses:
In the case of an intraoral approach, there may be a higher risk of infection and encapsulation of the prosthesis. If the approach is under the chin, it may leave minimal scarring. Some patients may experience rejection of the prosthetic material or fibrosis around the implant.
