Chin Advancement In Thailand

Sliding Genioplasty, often known as “Chin Advancement,” is a cosmetic surgery technique that changes the curve of the chin to match other facial characteristics.
This surgery begins with an incision inside the mouth, below the lower lip. Sliding genioplasty is done in severe situations to extend or shift the chin backward. The bony chin part of the jaw is then sliced and advanced or shifted backward.
This portion is then fastened with a little bone screw or wire.
The operation typically lasts 1 hour, but can extend to 3 hours if additional operations are performed concurrently.
For post-surgical care, it is recommended to follow a soft diet and routinely clean the operation site with saline solution until the first postoperative visit. You may have discomfort and soreness, which can be managed with pain relief.
During the recovery time, you may be able to resume normal activities in 5-10 days. However, you may need to follow a liquid or soft diet for a day or two.

Possible risks and complications of chin advancement include overreduction, underreduction, nerve damage, necrosis, poor cosmetic outcomes, implant or bone filler rejection, hematoma, infection, permanent change in sensation, step down problems, gum recession, tooth root exposer, tooth loss, chin ptosis, blood clots, non-union between bone segments, and screw or plate misplacement. Discuss all hazards with your cosmetic surgeon.
Anesthesia use:
Depending on the procedure, the anesthetic can be general or local.
Hospital admission:
It relies on both your and your surgeon’s preferences. Chin advancement can be performed as an outpatient procedure, in a hospital, or in an ambulatory surgery suite.
Preparation Before Surgery
During consultation, a medical history (including allergies, major medical conditions, and prescriptions) will be assessed, followed by a physical examination and laboratory tests.
Blood and urine samples will be taken for pre-operative laboratory examinations. X-rays may be used to assess bone structure.
 Avoid smoking for 3-4 weeks before surgery as it disrupts circulation and slows healing.
 You may need to abstain from alcohol for a week prior to surgery and during recuperation.
 Avoid using medications including hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids, and vitamins for at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complications before surgery.
Avoid using aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines, and herbal supplements as they can cause more bleeding.
