The procedure is performed through an incision hidden inside the mouth. The bone is separated and mobilized to enhance or reduce the size of the chin. Chin augmentation can also be performed with specialized implants
What to Expect
During a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Alghoul can review your candidacy for genioplasty and discuss your aesthetic goals. For some patients, Dr. Alghoul may find that a rhinoplasty procedure may help bring the facial features into balance. He will discuss all of your treatment options.
Genioplasty is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. You may engage in light activity the day following surgery. Return to normal activity, including exercise, takes up to two weeks. Rinsing the mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash after eating is recommended. Tooth brushing can be resumed carefully after surgery. Antibiotics are prescribed for five days.
