Sliding Genioplasty & chin implant surgery in Turkey
In a sliding genioplasty in Turkey, the plastic surgeon cuts the chin bone away from the rest of the jaw, and moves it to adjust a chin inadequacy by a chin implant. This is also called an osseous genioplasty.
Sliding genioplasty is a surgical procedure that is advised for patients with severe retrogenia, or those whose chin is too far back from the rest of the jaw.
The surgeon performs this cosmetic surgery under general anesthesia after a pre-anesthesia consultation.

In the beginning, your plastic surgeon will pull down your lower lip and make an incision on the gum below your bottom teeth. Then the surgeon separates the soft tissue from the rest of the jaw. Your surgeon will cut a small vertical line in the chin.
In most cases of sliding genioplasty, the doctor approaches the chin by incisions of the oral mucosa (no external scars). During this surgical procedure, the plastic surgeon cuts the chin below the teeth so that it can be moved in the desired position before the procedure.
The surgical procedure of chin implant involve the placement of a plastic prosthesis and adhering it to the jawbone.
Chin augmentation & chin reduction
To make your chin longer (chin augmentation), the surgeon reattach the bone with a gap between the rest of the jaw and the chin. Bone will regenerate itself over time and fill this space. To change the positioning of the chin or to shorten it (chin reduction), he will remove the cuneus of bone and reattach your chin to the rest of the jaw with metal plates and screws.
Several techniques of sliding genioplasty make it possible to back a protruding chin: the plastic surgeon can remove excess fat and soft tissue, file the lower edge of the mandibular bone, or cut the excess bone (osteotomy) then reattach the front part of the chin (osseous genioplasty or bone graft).
