Genioplasty indications

Genioplasty is a surgical procedure that focuses on reshaping the chin to meet the specific needs of each patient. It can be performed for both aesthetic and functional reasons, such as after facial trauma or fractures.

Genioplasty in Turkey may be recommended for individuals with:

  • A prominent or protruding chin: to reduce chin protrusion for a more balanced profile.
  • Skeletal deformities: to correct bony chin deformities.
  • Receding chin (retrogenesis): to increase chin projection for a more defined profile.
  • Microgenia (small chin): to increase the size and projection of the chin.
  • Chin hypoplasia.
  • Hemifacial microsomia.
  • Lack of facial harmony.

Genioplasty techniques in Turkey

The choice of genioplasty technique depends on the aesthetic defect to be treated and the patient's motivation.

In Turkey, several genioplasty techniques are available at our partner clinics:

  • Mandibular Osteotomy: This involves a precise, controlled sectioning of the jawbone below the roots of the teeth. This section then allows the chin bone fragment to be repositioned in the desired direction: backward, forwards, downwards, upwards, or sideways. This technique is used for larger chin corrections.
  • Prosthetic implant: A silicone prosthesis is inserted into the chin area to increase the projection and define the contour.
  • Chin Lipofilling: This technique involves the injection of the patient's own fat to increase the volume and define the contour of the chin.
  • Bone or cartilage grafting: This technique uses a bone or cartilage graft to increase the projection and sculpt the contour of the chin.

Genioplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia. The incision is made either under the chin or inside the mouth, depending on the technique used. The surgeon will then sculpt the bone or place an implant, depending on the patient's individual treatment plan. Sutures are usually made with absorbable materials and usually do not need to be removed.

It is common for surgeons to use pre-curved titanium plates and screws, ranging in size from 3mm to 8mm, to hold the modified chin in place after surgery.

Post-operative follow-up to chin surgery

After chin surgery, it's important to expect certain side effects due to the inflammation caused by the procedure itself.

Side Effects

Here's what to expect:

  • Swelling and edema, especially in the first few days after surgery. This may be accompanied by bruising and hematoma.
  • Pain: Mild to moderate pain is common and will be managed by your surgeon with pain medication.
  • Lip numbness: Temporary numbness of the lips is common and should disappear within 15 days of surgery.

Postoperative instructions

To reduce the risk of infection, the patient must maintain good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth gently and use an antiseptic mouthwash several times a day.

Eat a soft or liquid diet for the first week. Avoid spicy, hot, or acidic foods as they may irritate the operated area.

To reduce inflammation, apply a cold compress to the swollen area for the first 24 to 48 hours. Also follow your surgeon's instructions regarding the use of a bandage or chin strap.

If you have a persistent fever, heavy bleeding, increased pain, or a foul odor coming from the wound, contact your surgeon immediately.

Chin surgery results

The final result of your chin surgery will not be visible for several months as the swelling completely disappears and the tissues heal. However, you will notice a significant improvement in facial harmony and profile within the first few days.

Swelling and bruising gradually diminish over the next 10 to 15 days, and the aesthetic result becomes more precise.

Final bone consolidation after bone remodeling generally takes 6 weeks. That's when you'll be able to appreciate the final result of your genioplasty.

Keep in mind that every patient is unique, and healing times may vary slightly from one person to another. In addition, your plastic surgeon in Turkey will guide you throughout the process and provide you with personalized instructions for optimal recovery and satisfying, long-lasting aesthetic results.

Frequently asked questions

With our clinics in Turkey, a genioplasty can be performed on a patient as soon as he turns 16 years old. However, sometimes doctors intervene a little earlier when it comes to children with a very receding chin with difficulty closing the mouth.

There are no notable complications, except chin sensitivity disorder due to the stretching of the chin nerves during the procedure. This disorder is temporary and will disappear within 3 months.

It will be possible to see the final result of a genioplasty starting from the third post surgery month.

Absolutely not! The scars from a genioplasty surgery would be inside the mouth, at the level of the lower gum. Therefore, they will be completely invisible.

Genioplasty is intended for people who wish to change the shape, position, or contour of the chin. It is generally applied to a receding chin that is set back from the rest of the face or a chin that protrudes forward.

The profiloplasty aims at harmonizing the profile of the face where the plastic surgeon associates the correction of the chin with nose surgery (rhinoplasty).

Genioplasty allows the correction of the chin when it is protruding in front (macrogenia) or curling in the back (microgenia).

Advancement genioplasty consists in advancing a receding chin. It consists in taking a bone part of the nose during a profiloplasty and performing the graft to reshape the chin. 

The price of a genioplasty in Turkey is about 2700 dollars. It depends on the procedure performed.
