CHIN AUGMENTATION (GENIOPLASTY)

What is chin augmentation (Genioplasty-Mentoplasty)? 

It is a procedure that corrects or reshapes a ‘weak’ chin by augmentation, by means of an implant or bone advancement to improve the shape and balance of the face. Since there are chances of unwanted complications with implants (infection, injury to the roots of the teeth, disposition etc) even after years, bone advancement method (hence your own tissue) is preferred by us. 

Who is a suitable candidate for chin augmentation surgery? 

Usually, candidates for chin augmentation are those who want more definition to their face and wish to bring the chin area into proportion with the rest of their features. 

It is not unusual to combine this operation with rhinoplasty or other facial procedures to give extra support to the face and neck and improve the facial profile overall. 

How long does chin augmentation last? 

Results are permanent from this procedure, however an implant may shift over time or may need to be exchanged or replaced. 

How is a chin augmentation procedure performed? 

Each procedure is tailored to individual patients’ needs; however the principal part of the surgery is to expose the chin via an intraoral incision, advance it, and then fix it with surgical wires or plates). In some cases patients need more extensive surgery if the chin is severely retro-positioned.

Duration of operation: 45 mins-1 hour 

Hospital stay: 0-1 night 

What to expect immediately after surgery 

Patients will have a dressing that will remain in place for 2-3 days to minimize the bruising and help to support the newly created shape. There may be tenderness, tightness and discomfort for the first few days and a liquid diet should be followed until the stitches are removed. Talking, eating and smiling may be difficult for the first few days. Initial bruising along with any swelling should disappear within 7-10 days after surgery. 

How long will it be before I can get back to my normal life? 

A 5-7 night stay is recommended in Turkey. Most people can return to work after two weeks post-operative. Due to swelling, full results may not be seen for some months following the surgery. 

Can chin augmentation surgery be performed without scar? 

Scars for this procedure can usually be well hidden in the natural crease under the chin (if an implant is put), or inside the mouth.

Our risk & complication rate is not higher than that of any surgery performed  in any other destination by similarly qualified doctors. Cosmetic surgery offers improvement, not perfection or the solving of life problems.

Why Choose An ISAPS Surgeon

While many types of doctors can perform cosmetic surgery, you entrust your appearance and your life to the doctor you choose. Every cosmetic surgery procedure involves risks and potential complications. If you have decided to undergo cosmetic surgery abroad, you should be confident that the surgeon you choose is properly trained and qualified to perform your procedure. The most intelligent choice is a member of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).
