A genioplasty is a dental procedure that is used to develop, rotate, or push back the chin in order to improve jaw alignment. This type of jaw alignment surgery can improve the jaw position as well as the overall appearance of your facial structure
Following an assessment of your symptoms, a physical examination, and special X-rays, Dr. Harouni will be able to determine which type of corrective jaw surgery is best for you.
Braces or other orthodontics may be required before your surgery to move your jaw into the correct alignment. Dr. Harouni teams up with your orthodontist to decide how long an orthodontic treatment is required before surgery.
When you’re fully prepared, Dr. Harouni will perform the orthognathic treatment to readjust the way your teeth meet. To keep you relaxed, this will be performed in the hospital under general anesthesia. He usually performs these surgeries from inside your mouth, avoiding the need for facial incisions.
Once Dr. Harouni moves the jawbone into the perfect position, he will use screws or wires to secure it in place and integrate it with the bone over time. In certain cases, he might need to add extra bone from some other area of your jaw to support the facial structure and teeth.
Recovery time can range from four to six weeks, depending upon the type of surgery. Dr. Harouni offers a comprehensive aftercare plan to ensure that your jaw heals and functions properly.
