For many men and women, having a weak or abnormally shaped chin can create a slew of confidence issues. A defined jawline is one of the most desirable aesthetic characteristics for the modern face. In order to achieve this facial structure, many people are beginning to turn to genioplasty, also known as chin surgery, to help correct misaligned or malformed jaw bones.
Will I have to be put to sleep for the procedure?
Typically, genioplasty is performed under general anesthesia, which means that you will be unconscious throughout the surgery.
How long will I be out of work?
Most patients experience mild discomfort and pain during their recovery, which usually only takes a few weeks to subside.
Will I need to change my diet during recovery?
No, you can continue your same dietary regimen unless you are also having another jaw surgery that requires a special diet.
