Genioplasty surgery is a cosmetic remedial treatment that revolves around repositioning or chin reshaping to improve the proportion of the face and features harmony. Genioplasty can improve the appearance by correcting any deformities of the chin and surrounding areas of the face of the patient. Patients are typically given anesthesia to numb the area before the surgery. The genioplasty surgery procedure, recovery, and duration would generally vary on the type and the severity of the corrective surgery.
Our genioplasty surgical experts at The Esthetic Clinics are maxillofacial and oral surgeons who have taken special training and gathered extensive experience in facial procedures. Also, some experienced plastic surgeons might do genioplasty if they have the required expertise in the related field. Cosmetic surgeons at our clinics in Mumbai perform genioplasty or facial features repositioning to fix the following facial deformities:
Corrective cosmetic or plastic surgeries have grown exponentially in popularity over the recent years. People now give more attention to how they look and feel and science and technology can give exactly the same to them as well. This is largely attributed to the fact that science has already accomplished some great milestones to fulfill this wish for people.
A similar specified surgery that a large number of people are considering for their treatment is genioplasty plastic surgery. Genioplasty surgery in India is one of the most sought-after options for individuals having abnormal chins and are looking forward to getting rid of it. People would undergo genioplasty surgery procedures to change their chin’s physical appearance. Therefore, more individuals consider genioplasty as a type of plastic surgery in India.
Individuals suffering from a medical problem such as retrogenia, affecting people’s quality of life, sleep issues, and more can benefit from genioplasty surgery. Therefore, medical conditions might also be a reason for such surgical intervention. In some cases, there can develop sleep apnea due to deformities of the chin.
Genioplasty is a corrective surgical procedure that has emerged exponentially in recent years. Genioplasty is a great solution for those who have problems with the alignment of their chin or any other abnormality affecting their physical appearance. There are generally two types:
Sliding genioplasty surgery accounts for repositioning of the chin to correct any previous abnormalities. Our top cosmetic surgeon would use a saw for cutting the chin bone during the surgery to reposition it by sliding the chin ahead or backward as needed. A top plastic surgeon would also be able to fix the asymmetrical proportion of the chin using this surgery to slide the chin matching both sides. A plastic surgeon would reattach the chin using surgical screws after repositioning the chin.
In implant augmentation surgery, cosmetic surgeons at The Esthetic Clinics can enhance a patient’s chin by elongating or reshaping the chin using silicone or plastic implants to attach with chin bone. In this process of the chin, a cosmetic surgeon would place the implant on the chin bone and secure the implants with screws or stitches. Fillers in place of implants offer an excellent alternative to implants of the chin minus the need for surgical procedures. Injection with dermal fillers can improve the shape and form of the chin to enhance the proportion of facial features.
Patients can experience the achievable outcome of the surgery as these injections are a substitute solution for chin reshaping. These dermal fillers consist of a variety of fat, such as calcium hydroxyapatite, fitting for corrective chin treatments.
During a genioplasty surgery, the cosmetic surgeon at our clinics in India takes proper measurements of the patient’s entire face. Our celebrity plastic surgeon will also take an X-ray along with a CT scan of the jaw for a better evaluation of the current situation. The process will help in getting a clear understanding of the patient’s chin shape and what alteration is required. The surgeon at our clinics in Mumbai will then figure out a suitable reposition for the chin and then proceed with a particular predefined procedure.
The plastic surgeon will then decide how to cut the main bone of the chin and what angle it should be cut from. In surgeries such as chin augmentation, the genioplasty cosmetic surgeon will typically use general anesthesia on the patient to facilitate the complete surgery. The patient will not feel any pain from the genioplasty procedure at our clinics in Mumbai.
Once the surgery is done, our experts and plastic surgeon can allow the patient to go home but they will have to take the necessary precautions during their recovery period. Our team at The Esthetic Clinics will give all necessary details on how to take care after the surgery to the patient when leaving our clinics. The patient can ask for any assistance they might need after the surgery.
The cost of genioplasty surgery varies, depending on the following aspects:
These prices only reflect the surgeon’s fee. The total chin genioplasty surgery costs may include the clinic, hospital, and other facility costs as well. Medical tests, X-rays, pre-operative and post-operative consultation appointments can affect the total cost to vary from patient to patient.
Generally, genioplasty surgical intervention and implants are safer methods for improving the appearance of the chin. However, almost all cosmetic surgical procedures can have possible side effects and risks associated with them. Genioplasty surgical procedures may lead to some side effects, like the following:
After a genioplasty procedure, the patient might need to stay in the hospital for a couple of days generally so that our surgeon can monitor the patient’s recovery. Our team during this stay would help the patient take proper recovery measures.
There will be several measures of genioplasty surgery aftercare that patients will have to take once they are discharged from our clinics in Mumbai. These measures will depend on the specific procedure of treatment and how it affects the patient’s body. However, some common genioplasty aftercare measures are:
The recovery period after a genioplasty surgery is generally around a week or two for most of the patients. However, one week is not enough for the chin to be completely healed. Patients with sliding or implant surgeries would need to have follow-up consultation appointments with our cosmetic surgeon to evaluate the recovery process.
Injectable dermal fillers on the other hand leave no scars and have a shorter recovery duration than sliding genioplasty and implant surgeries. The chin of the patient might appear completely healed within a few weeks of the surgery. However, complete recovery is only when there are no significant signs of residual swelling on the face. The patient will be allowed to do their usual daily chores but complete recovery will take at least three months.
