Genioplasty is considered as an alternative for chin implants. By using the patient’s own bone, the surgeon can then change the shape, height, projection and the proportion of the chin of the individual. It can actually offer more versatility than the implant chin augmentations which will be able to give the chin with more projection and for changing the shape. The results that osseous genioplasty gives is dramatic, which will in fact make the face as well as other features a lot more proportional. The thing about genioplasty is the fact that this could move the patient’s chin forward or backward, up or down and make this wider, more square or narrow or more rounded. The osseous or sliding genioplasty can change the facial shape as well, which would give them a more striking V line shape opposed with the rounded lower facial shape. Another the thing about it is that this will also come with added effects of tightening the neckline as well as jawline, which would then make the patient look younger by reducing any signs of aging such as jowls and also on double chins.
There actually are various benefits that you could get if you are going to consider an osseous genioplasty. In an osseous genioplasty or a sliding genioplasty, the chin bone of a patient is cut and this will be slid either up or down or perhaps forward to position the chin in an ideal position, which actually is determined through the pre-operative x-ray and in precise measurement. There’s actually still going to be a bone to bone contact on the new chin position and that position is going to be secured through the small titanium plate. Within just several weeks, the cut in the chin bone is going to heal and the chin would then become a bone that’s complete again with a new proportionate position and shape. This actually brings all the muscle fat and skin which later on will tighten the soft tissues where if it is loose would, later on, show signs of aging.
When a patient will age, the fatty tissues, skin and muscle bands of a neck will start to loosen its former elasticity. This would then cause the tissues of the patient to sag and to also lose the definition of the chin and neck.
The silastic chin implants or known in other terms as silicone may shift position and may sometimes cause underlying bones on changing shape. Through genioplasty, it actually won’t happen due to the reason that the bones will heal as a solid single bone. Plastic surgeons who specialize in facial bone surgery are actually familiar with the advantages and disadvantages of each of the chin procedures available.
