Removing implant for sliding genioplasty

Removing implant for sliding genioplasty

Postby Vanessa2125 » Thu Feb 22, 2018 3:35 pm

I currently have a chin implant and am about to get a sliding genioplasty to replace it and have it removed. I have visited two oral surgeons so far. The first told me that a genioplasty would get my the same results as my current chin implant. The surgeon that I'm currently seeing told me that he can add more horizontal length AND alleviate some of the mentolabial fold depth. I about to have this surgery done and am super worried that I'm doing it for nothing. Is it possible to alleviate mentolabial fold depth*without adding any vertical length added through the genioplasty? Did any of you undergo a sliding genioplasty procedure and have the mentolabial fold lessened as a result without adding any vertical length? I didn't want to add any vertical length and have my face looking longer. I can't afford jaw surgery if this isn't the case. This is so stressful. All I wanted was a nice chin dammit
