Chin Surgery

Chin surgery, also known as genioplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the appearance and balance of the chin. It can address both small and large deformities of the chin, which can cause significant aesthetic concerns. When evaluating the chin, it is important to assess the normal relationship between the upper and lower teeth. In interventions focused solely on the chin, it is crucial for the dental relationship, or bite, to be normal. Genioplasty surgeries are procedures that aim to change the appearance of the chin. These surgeries can involve increasing or decreasing the size and length of the chin to achieve a chin shape that conforms to aesthetic norms.

When the chin is larger than normal, it negatively affects facial harmony and can result in a coarse appearance. The surgery can be performed to reduce the chin to a size that aligns with aesthetic norms. As a result, a more natural and beautiful facial structure is achieved. On the other hand, having a smaller-than-normal chin is a more common condition. If the person also has a prominent nose, the deformity becomes more pronounced, resulting in a condition known as “Bird face.” In our country, the use of synthetic materials such as silicone, Medpor, and titanium is a common approach for chin augmentation. However, using synthetic materials carries risks such as erosion, displacement of underlying bone tissue, and infection. Additionally, interventions using synthetic materials do not result in any improvement in the submental soft tissue sagging known as “double chin.” At our clinic, these problems are resolved by advancing the chin bone forward. With this technique, aesthetic improvements also occur in the submental and neck areas. Furthermore, as with other problems related to the facial skeleton, surgeries using the patient’s own bone tissue are the most reliable.

Genioplasty surgeries are performed under general anesthesia in a fully equipped hospital. The average duration of the surgery is 45 minutes to 1 hour. The entire procedure is done through the mouth, leaving no visible scars on the face. The patient is discharged on the same day or the next day. After the surgery, there is minimal pain, which can be managed with painkillers taken orally. Swelling associated with the surgery typically subsides completely within 5-7 days.

Orthognathic Surgery – Bite Disorders

Orthognathic surgery refers to a general term encompassing surgical procedures that correct skeletal and dental abnormalities in the facial bones.

Orthognathic surgery can be described as procedures performed to correct disharmony between the jaws or misalignment between the teeth and jaws. It can also address aesthetic and functional issues. The treatment of bite disorders and orthognathic surgeries performed in our clinic are in parallel with modern plastic surgery clinics abroad.

The following are problems that can occur in the facial skeleton and can be resolved through orthognathic surgery:

  1. Forward, backward, right-sided, or left-sided position of the lower jaw
  2. Underdevelopment of one side or the entire lower jaw
  3. Forward, backward, right-sided, or left-sided position of the upper jaw
  4. Insufficient development of the upper jaw
  5. Lack of contact between the upper and lower teeth (open bite deformity)
  6. Chin positioned too far forward or backward, small or large
  7. Cheekbones that are too large, too small, positioned forward, or backward
  8. Distorted shape and structure of the jaws due to accidents or tumors

There are variations in the development and proportions of the facial structure and skeletal growth in each individual, leading to different proportions of jaw development. When there is an abnormal relationship between the upper and lower jaws, malocclusion occurs. These dental and skeletal problems can affect facial aesthetics to varying degrees. Therefore, both functional and aesthetic problems
