In a study of 40 patients with genioplasty, the majority were generally satisfied with the results of the surgical procedure and only one of them was subject to certain reservations regarding the results, but not enough to get further adjustments. No significant complications were observed during a two-year follow-up period. The resulting appearance and position of the chin were well maintained in all cases.
How is the Sliding Genioplasty in Turkey performed?
In a sliding genioplasty in Turkey, the surgeon cuts the chin bone away from the rest of the jawbone, and move it to adjust a chin inadequacy. This is also called an osseous mentoplasty.
Sliding genioplasty is advised for patients with severe retrogenia, or those whose chin is too far back from the rest of their face. It can also help with adjusting chins that are too long or pushed too far forward.
The operation is undertaken under general anesthesia after a pre-anesthesia consultation.
In the beginning, your surgeon will pull down your lower lip and make an incision on the gum below your bottom teeth. Then the gingival tissue is separated from the jawbone. Your surgeon will cut a small vertical line in the chin. This guarantees the that bone will remain straight when it’s displaced forward or backward.
In most cases, the chin is approached by incisions of the oral mucosa (no external scars). The surgeon cuts the chin below the teeth so that it can be moved in the intended direction before the procedure. Then, the bone fragments are fixed by steel wires or titanium mini-plates (osteosynthesis).
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 make your chin shorter (chin reduction), he will remove the cuneus of bone and reattach your chin to the rest of your jawbone.
Stitches are placed in the mouth. They disappear in 2 to 4 weeks or are removed in consultation.
Several techniques make it possible to back a protruding chin: the surgeon can remove excess fat and fatty tissue, file the lower edge of the mandibular bone, or cut the excess bone (osteotomy) then reattach the front part of the chin.
Techniques of Sliding Genioplasty in Turkey
For receding chin surgery, there are also different methods:
- The implant: the prosthesis is concealed by the thickness of the fat and muscles of the chin.
- Chin advancement osteotomy: the surgeon cuts the bone of the chin to create a bone fragment that is then advanced and secured in the desired position using metal plates and screws.
- Bone graft: The surgeon collects the necessary graft from the nose when doing profiloplasty (nose and chin surgery) or elsewhere.

With our clinics in Turkey, a genioplasty can be performed on a patient as soon as he turns 16 years old. However, sometimes doctors intervene a little earlier when it comes to children with a very receding chin with difficulty closing the mouth.
There are no notable complications, except chin sensitivity disorder due to the stretching of the chin nerves during the procedure. This disorder is temporary and will disappear within 3 months.
It will be possible starting from the third post surgery month.
Absolutely not ! The scar would be inside the mouth, at the level of the lower gum.
