Jaw Aesthetics

These are surgeries that can be performed for patients whose jaw structure is not proportional to other parts of the face. The aim of chin surgeries is to catch the balance between the chin structure and other parts of the face. It can be applied to both women and men.

 

Jaw Implant

Those with a back chin, a large nose, a fleshy neck, and a square-shaped chin are suitable candidates.
The implants to be applied can be of many types. The aim is to use quality material that can create a hard and natural jaw line. Additional interventions such as nose surgery and lip augmentation can be added to this surgery.

Before Surgery


Detailed medical information about the person is obtained. The drugs he uses and additional diseases are definitely questioned. The person's expectations and complaints about his jaw are listened to. What can be done in the surgery and what kind of image will be obtained are discussed together. Other facial structures of the patient are examined in detail. The patient is examined. Appropriate drawings and necessary photography are made.

Operation


It is done under general anaesthesia. It takes about 1 hour. Incisions can be made under the chin or inside the mouth. If it is done through the mouth, the risk of bacterial contamination is higher, but there is no visible trace. Then the appropriate implant is placed on the chin. The drain is not placed.

Postoperative


The patient is discharged on the same day or the next day. If an intraoral incision is made, it is supported with appropriate antibiotics. His diet is mainly liquid in the first days. He can take a bath as soon as he gets home. Intraoral sutures dissolve on their own. Sutures under the chin are removed on the 10th day. The person's face and chin area may swell and become bruised. The patient can return to work after 7-10 days.

Are Placed Implants Safe?


They are very safe and have permanent results. There may be some complications. The implant may be displaced, there may be numbness in the jaw as a result of nerve damage, and infection may occur.

Chin Reduction

It is done under general anaesthesia. It takes about 1 hour. Incisions can be made under the chin or inside the mouth. If it is done through the mouth, the risk of bacterial contamination is higher, but there is no visible trace. Then the jaw bone is cut, reduced and reshaped and fixed with the help of a plate and screw.

Is it safe?


They are very safe and have permanent results. There may be some complications. Infection rates are much less common because no foreign body is placed. Since the bone healing period is the period of union, chewing may be painful at first and it may take a little longer for the swelling to disappear.

Conclusion


With both surgeries, the person's self-confidence and social initiative increase. When evaluating the patient, additional interventions such as nose surgery, face lift, lip augmentation should be reminded.
