Chin Augmentation (Genioplasty) in Dubai – Enhance Your Facial Harmony
The appearance of your face is greatly influenced by the shape, structure, and size of your facial features, particularly the chin and jawline. A weak jawline can make your nostrils appear more prominent, and your lips look thinner, while a prominent jawbone can make other facial features seem smaller. Deformities in facial structures can affect facial expression and even lead to chewing difficulties. Genioplasty, also known as chin augmentation, is a surgical procedure that corrects the position of the chin and jaw to enhance facial symmetry and appearance. It is a permanent solution to achieve a balanced and attractive face. At MedDental clinic in Dubai, our cosmetic dentists possess exceptional expertise in assessing your facial profile and determining the most suitable chin augmentation procedure.
What is genioplasty or chin augmentation?
Genioplasty is a surgical procedure designed to reshape the chin and jaws, improving the overall presentation of the jawline and face. This procedure corrects a recessed or misaligned jawbone, mild to moderate chin recession, square chin, excessively prominent nose, or post-traumatic defects. By improving facial harmony, genioplasty creates a more balanced and appealing appearance. If you are unsatisfied with your side profiles and seeking a straightforward procedure with rapid results, MedDental Clinic in Dubai is the ideal choice.
Types of Genioplasty:
This type of genioplasty is used to treat cases of retrogenia, where the jawbone is pushed back compared to other facial structures. Sliding genioplasty typically corrects excessively enlarged jawbones positioned forward about the rest of the face.
Chin implants enhance and push forward extremely small jawbones, resulting in a more refined facial appearance.
Genioplasty is performed under general anesthesia, although it is a day-case procedure, allowing you to return home on the same day without needing overnight hospitalization. The surgery is conducted from inside your mouth to avoid visible scars on your face. An incision is made on the lower side of the lip, which is then pulled downwards to expose the jawbone for the genioplasty procedure. The incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches.
Recovery after the surgery:
Although the procedure is relatively painless, it may take a few days or weeks for any discomfort, pain, and swelling to subside completely. Antibiotics and medications will be prescribed to minimize the risk of infection. To ensure a comfortable recovery, consider the following tips:
- Apply a cold pack to the surgical site during the first few days to minimize swelling.
- Sleep in an upright position to help reduce swelling.
- Use a jaw garment provided by your dentist for at least one week after the surgery.
- Consume soft foods and use mouthwash for a few days, practicing gentle brushing.
- Avoid driving for at least 48 hours after the surgery.
- Allow yourself sufficient rest by taking a week off work for a speedy recovery.
By following these guidelines and cooperating with your dental team, you can ensure a successful genioplasty procedure and achieve the desired outcome for your chin augmentation.
