Genioplasty in Turkey
The genioplasty in Turkey is performed by a Turkish plastic surgeon, it is used to correct the unsightly shape of a chin in order to improve the two views of the face : the front view and the side view.
During a genioplasty in Turkey, the surgical act consists in correcting the shape of a protruding chin or the shape of a receding chin, a protruding chin is a chin that is very advanced compared to the normal one.The receding chin, unlike the protruding chin, is excessively receding. The nature of the chin is determined by a vertical line that starts from the forehead, passes through the nose and stops at the horizontal surface of the chin. If this line stops before the limit of the chin, the chin is protruding. If this same line goes beyond the chin, then the chin is receding. The Turkish plastic surgeon can detect during the examination an excess fat in the chin area. So, before doing a genioplasty, he will proceed to a liposuction to aspirate this fat.
Similar to the nose, the chin has a remarkable influence on the appearance of the face : the more refined it is, the better the facial view will be. Almost all of our patients are aware of this detail. Some of them ask for a genioplasty associated with a rhinoplasty. It's called a profiloplasty. A simple lipofilling may be enough to treat a slightly receding chin. If the chin deformity presents a significant damage to the gum and to the lower jaw, the plastic surgeon will prescribe a consultation with a Turkish dental surgeon.
Genioplasty turkey : the intervention
After examining the patient, the surgeon will decide with the anaesthesiologist on the type of the anaesthesia to be used and the length of hospitalization. A genioplasty can be performed under general anaesthesia or under local anaesthesia. It may require a night of hospitalization or it may be performed on an outpatient basis. Genioplasty in Turkey lasts 30 minutes or one hour.The incision made during this procedure is very discreet. It is carried out carefully inside the mouth at the level of the lower gum or outside the chin using a very refined technique.
To improve the shape of a protruding chin, the surgeon proceeds to a replantation of the bone or a receding osteotomy. The first technique requires only the filing of the treated area, while the second technique consists of cutting the excess bone and using metal paddles and screws to fix the front of the chin. This method is called a recoil osteotomy. Repairing the unsightly shape of a receding chin is treated with a prosthesis, a bone grafting, or with an advancement osteotomy. The latter consists of creating a bone fragment and then repositioning it forward using metal paddles and screws
To perform a bone graft, the surgeon removes a quantity of bone from one of these parts : the nose, the kull or the pelvis and then uses it to reshape the shape of the chin. This technique which is well studied and very frequent does not alter the donor parts.
