Are you unhappy with the natural contours of your profile? Does it feel like your chin or jawline prevents you from having the profile you desire? Genioplasty is a diverse surgical procedure that can address a range of concerns related to the chin and profile. Explore the possibilities during a consultation with us at Omaha Face Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Omaha, NE!
What Is Genioplasty?
Genioplasty, or chin surgery, includes procedures that reshape and redefine the natural contours of the chin. It may include chin reduction or chin augmentation. Chin reduction is ideal for those who are seeking a slimmer or shorter chin. Chin augmentation, which involves the use of a custom chin implant, is an option for those seeking stronger chin definition.
What Could I Expect from Chin Surgery?
Genioplasty is a cosmetic, surgical procedure. These procedures are performed under anesthesia to ensure complete comfort during the entire process. To begin the surgical process, strategic incisions are carefully made. This allows for the manipulation of tissues and bones in the area. In the case of chin reduction, the bone may be shaved down. In the case of chin augmentation, a chin implant may be put in place.
This is an outpatient procedure done in our onsite surgical suite. Following the procedure, you should allow yourself time to relax and heal. To keep the results in place, you may be provided with specific bandages or other wrappings. Our professional staff will provide you with all of the information you need to adequately prepare for and recover from the genioplasty procedure.
Results achieved with genioplasty will vary for each person and their specific goals for chin surgery. While some initial results may be visible, the best results take some time to become visible. Once any bruising or swelling has subsided, the best results should be clear. Results are intended to be permanent.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Genioplasty may be beneficial for people who are seeking a surgical procedure to reshape or redefine their chin. Most healthy adults are considered good candidates. However, it is essential to maintain realistic goals and expectations for the treatment process and potential outcomes.
A consultation with Dr. Harbison in Omaha can help ensure you could benefit from this procedure. Your personal health, your frustrations, and your treatment goals will be discussed to help tailor your treatment plan.
