Genioplasty – Chin Reshaping
At Dallas Surgical Arts, we want you to feel confident about your appearance, which is why we proudly offer treatments that provide the look you’ve always dreamed of. Dr. Sanovich understands the value of a strong, well-defined chin for both men and women and uses surgical techniques to improve both the size and the shape of the chin.
What is a genioplasty?
Genioplasty is the medical term for surgery that alters the shape and size of a chin and improves contours of the chin, neck, and jawline. If you are looking for more balanced facial features, a chin enhancement could be the ideal solution.
What are my options?
There are several types of genioplasties. Dr. Sanovich can:
- Advance your chin forward if it is recessed. (Advancement Genioplasty)
- Push your chin back if it juts out. (Reduction Genioplasty)
- Move your chin to the side to improve symmetry.
- Remove or add bone to increase or decrease the length of your chin.
What is the process?
Dr. Sanovich cuts the chin bone away from the rest of the jaw and moves it to the desired location. This procedure is called osteotomy and can be used to increase or decrease the profile projection of the chin. Dr. Sanovich utilizes cutting-edge medical technology, such as 3D imagery and virtual surgical planning, to help his patients visualize their results. He then crafts an individualized treatment plan to achieve the patient’s goals.
Does a genioplasty hurt?
Surprisingly, No! Genioplasty is normally performed under deep IV sedation, similar to a colonoscopy, so you will be completely comfortable. During the first week of healing you may experience swelling and slight discomfort, but with the provided prescriptions and detailed post-surgical recommendations your downtime will be minimal.
At the conclusion of the procedure, Dr. Sanovich will provide a Non-opioid injection, EXPAREL. This provides significant long-lasting pain control while reducing opioid use. Dr. Sanovich is always available should you have any difficulty or concern.
