Genioplasty or chin surgery information and locations in Mexico

A genioplasty is a surgery done to patients with a weak chin, but have an otherwise normal bite. It can be done with either a sliding technique or implants. Depending on the patient, this could be a same day procedure.
A genioplasty can be done with sliding technique or implants. Both techniques require general anesthesia. On a sliding genioplasty, the surgeon cuts the chin bone and moves it to correct the deficiency. This is usually done on patients with more noticeable chin problems. The other procedure is a chin implant made of synthetic material compatible with your body that is attached over the bone. Both techniques are done from within the mouth as to not leave external scars.
