Chin Surgery (Genioplasty) Before & After Photos

Chin Surgery (Genioplasty) Before & After Case 1

This gentleman has a history of a cleft lip and nasal deviation, with severe difficulty breathing through his nostrils.

I performed a rhinoplasty to straighten a deviated septum, and used the removed cartilage from the septum to make grafts that helped to straighten and support the nasal passages.

We also chose to perform a genioplasty, moving the chin forward to balance his facial features.

Chin Surgery (Genioplasty) Before & After Case 2

This handsome young man has a history of a unilateral cleft lip and palate.

He is seen here 7 months after jaw surgery (maxillary advancement, mandibular setback, and chin advancement), and 1 month after rhinoplasty.

His occlusion (or how his teeth fit together) is now centered and leveled, with the teeth now able to chew optimally. This will help with TMJ and dental health long-term.

The bony work also helped to balance his facial profile, giving his upper lip and chin more support.

The rhinoplasty improved his breathing by straightening the septum and supporting his nasal passages, like having a Breathe-Right strip on the inside of his nose.

His lip scar will also continue to improve after a re-repair and re-orientation of the muscle of his lip.

Chin Surgery (Genioplasty) Before & After Case 3

This patient had a cleft palate and Class III malocclusion, meaning her upper jaw growth had not kept pace with the lower jaw. i.e., the maxilla was further back than the mandible.

This difference in bite causes problems with speech and chewing, and can increase the wear and tear on teeth and the TMJ’s.

Here, a custom-planned Lefort 1 advancement and chin advancement (genioplasty) corrected her malocclusion, while also giving a little bit more chin definition without going through the recovery and risks of a BSSO for the mandible.
