Chin implants are basically material that come shaped as a chin that will fit onto the front of the chin. There are different types and shapes of chin implant available and different sizes as well. And usually they're fixed, either placed from a small, little cut underneath the chin here, or from a small cut on the inside of the mouth. There is a risk of infection when you put an implant into a patient, and therefore, to try and avoid infection, often we would prefer to make a small incision from underneath here so you won't involve any bacteria that are in the mouth, meaning the infection risk is lower. Other risks of chin implant are that you can get some slight numbness afterwards because you can stretch the nerves that come out of the jaw here a little bit when you put the implant in, but that's unusual. And if you do get it, it should settle down relatively quickly. The implants themselves are usually fixed with a couple of screws each side. The screws are made of titanium. That's to stop them moving around and prevent problems in the future.

A genioplasty is an operation where the chin point can be moved either forward or backwards or up or down, so in pretty much any direction. And, it's really useful where maybe the jaws have grown, not in a correct correlation to each other and have affected the appearance, but the teeth are in the correct position and the bite is good. So, it's for a situation where you just want to move the chin point alone, independent of the rest of the jaw.

A genioplasty is a procedure on the chin that involves making a cut in the actual bone of the chin beneath where the teeth are, in order to move that chin point and that chin point can be moved either forwards or backwards. If someone has got a very long chin or a very short chin, that bony section can also be adjusted as well so we can actually lengthen it a little bit or we can take a wedge out of the bone in the middle to make it slightly shorter. So it's a very versatile operation to alter the shape of the chin.

Genioplasty itself is usually a procedure that has a high success rate. There are some risks with it. The main risks are that you can get some slight numbness or altered sensation because these nerves that come out of the bone are often stretched a little bit when we do the surgery. That's usually a temporary thing, but very occasionally you can get some small amounts of altered sensation, usually in the regions of lower lip, gums, and teeth. Other risks, as with all surgery there's risks of bleeding and infection. Other risks or issues that we see with chin surgery are where we've made small bone cuts here, occasionally you can get little indents in the bone afterwards which you can feel with your fingers at the lower part of the jaw. Usually, it's healed and settled without a problem, but occasionally patients may say that they want a little adjustment or a little smoothing of the jawline, but that wouldn't be 'til at least a year after the surgery.

Chin surgery might be undertaken for a number of reasons. Patients may present with either a chin they feel is too big or a chin that is too small, and those are the commonest things. If you've got a small chin, there are two main ways of augmenting the chin, and one is to use a chin implant, the other is to do bone surgery to alter the position of the chin point and that's known as a genioplasty.

Following bony surgery, swelling is an issue generally and it can take quite a long time for the main...for the final swelling to settle. The main swelling after genioplasty will usually last for a couple of weeks but I usually tell patients that final swelling will take about a year or so. Some patients will go and have massage and lymphatic massage and that may help sometimes. Other than that really that's not all they can do to help themselves. Obviously good oral hygiene is important when, especially in the recovery period to help prevent from infection.

Very occasionally there's a small risk that they can get infected and need to be removed but that's unlikely.

Chin implants are basically material that is fixed to the front of the chin to augment and bring the chin point forward, and it's usually screwed into place using four small titanium screws. A genioplasty is a procedure where we make a cut in the bone, and that bone cut will go underneath the area here, which you can see there's a little nerve that comes out of the bone here. So therefore we make a chin...a bone cut that comes underneath that. And we can cut along the chin beneath the roots of the teeth and move that section of bone forward, or backwards if you've got a big chin, without actually moving the position of the teeth. So, it's a relatively straightforward procedure that will give you a new shape to the bone at the front of the chin.
