What is genioplasty?
A genioplasty in Turkey and Istanbul is an operation used to perfect the look and appearance of the chin. It can be performed alone or in combination with other jaw-related surgeries, either for medical or cosmetic purposes. The chin has a significant effect on the appearance of a person’s face. By undergoing a genioplasty, patients can change the general profile and symmetry of their face.

Genioplasty in Turkey can be exploited by those who have problems with their chins, such as:
A prominent chin.
A protruding chin.
A fleeing chin.
Hypoplasia of the chin.
A hemifacial microsomy.
A lack of facial harmony.
What are the expected results?
The objectives of the procedure are:
Create an aesthetically pleasing facial contour.
Establish a proportional facial height.
In a study of 40 patients with genioplasty, the majority were generally satisfied with the results of the surgical procedure and only one of them was subject to certain reservations regarding the results, but not enough to get further adjustments. No significant complications were observed during a two-year follow-up period. The resulting appearance and position of the chin were well maintained in all cases.
How is the procedure performed?
The objectives of a mentoplasty can be achieved by:
Chin prostheses: these are the main option for minor chin abnormalities. They are very effective in creating a more balanced and symmetrical appearance in patients with decreasing chins.
Sliding genioplasty: this procedure is reserved for more complex chin deformities, such as those caused by genetics, trauma or disease. This procedure can solve problems related to deformities of the chin, such as airway obstruction. Since this is a sliding surgery, no bone grafting procedure is necessary.
Genioplasty can be performed either horizontally, vertically, or a combination of the two. A horizontal genioplasty is ideal for the chin protruding outward, while a vertical genioplasty is suitable for removing or adding bone tissue to increase or decrease the length of the chin. In some cases, horizontal and vertical changes are necessary to achieve the results desired by the patient. It is normal for surgeons to use pre-bent titanium plates and screws, ranging in size from 3mm to 8mm, to keep the modified chin in place after the procedure.
All genioplasty procedures are performed under general anesthesia and with an incision either under the chin or inside the mouth. Depending on the purpose of the procedure, this may include cutting or removing a piece of the chin or placing chin implants. Most genioplasty procedures for cosmetic purposes are performed in clinics in Turkey, Istanbul, Izmir, Antalya and Ankara. But in some cases, patients may be admitted to hospital, especially if the procedure was performed due to serious illness or a traumatic injury.
