Osseous Genioplasty

The chin is vital to the human facial morphology as it adds to the facial asthetics and congruity both on frontal and parallel perspectives. Osseous genioplasty, the adjustment of the jaw through skeletal alteration, can prompt huge improvement of the general facial profile. Several surgical ways exist for the treatment of chin deformities. Osseous genioplasty is a stable procedure that has a low risk of complications and it has an excellent procedure when combines with other asthetic procedure such as rhinoplasty, rhytidectomy  etc.Alloplastic chin implants and sliding genioplasty represent the 2 currently accepted methods of chin augmentation. However, to debate whether alloplastic augmentation or osseous genioplasty is the superior choice is beyond the scope of this article. Techniques for chin reduction include genioplasty and direct chin reduction. Skeletal surgery has been through the test of time, and still remains a valued procedure for the facial surgeon. The Sliding Genioplasty technique includes making a slice through the bone of the jaw, which is called an osteotomy. By arranging for the malposition bone, can reposition the zone to a perfect introduction. A little plate, produced using titanium, is utilized to secure the jaw in its new position on the jaw bone.
