What is the difference between Chin Implant, Chin augmentation Genioplasty, and Sliding Genioplasty?
A chin implant is a solid silicone prosthesis. This type of implant is available in different shapes and sizes to be used by all people who want to do surgery on their chin. Also, chin implants are other for men and women. This type of surgery is considered an outpatient surgery; in this type of surgery, the person is placed under local anesthesia. The prosthesis is then inserted into the jaw by making an incision in the mouth. After the chin implant, based on the surgeon’s opinion, you can stay or go home.
Chin augmentation (Genioplasty)
Chin augmentation (Genioplasty) is a type of surgery that aims to improve the chin of people who have small or sunken chins. In this surgery, either the chin bone is repaired and resized, or a silicone prosthesis is inserted into the chin. This operation is usually done at the same time as nose surgery.
Chin Augmentation (Sliding Genioplasty)
Chin Augmentation (Sliding Genioplasty) is one of the most common Genioplasty surgery and chin deviation surgery types. Chin Augmentation (Sliding Genioplasty) is a type of chin and jaw surgery performed to move the jaw forward or backward. In Sliding Genioplasty, the jawbone moves backward (to shrink the jaw) or forward (to enlarge the jaw) depending on the type of abnormality. In some cases, the same Genioplasty surgery can be used up and down to shorten or lengthen the face.
