Reshape The Chin &
Improve Facial Contours

Genioplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes the chin to improve facial aesthetics and harmony. This elective surgery involves altering the chin’s size, position, or shape to address concerns such as an overly prominent or receding chin. Genioplasty creates a more balanced and proportionate facial profile by carefully sculpting the chin. It is often performed as a cosmetic and reconstructive procedure, helping you achieve your desired facial appearance.

Genioplasty FAQs

How does genioplasty work?

Genioplasty in Thousand Oaks involves reshaping the chin for a more balanced and harmonious facial profile. During genioplasty, Dr. Fahradyan makes incisions inside the mouth or externally, beneath the chin. Once access is gained to the chin bone (mandible), he may use various techniques, such as cutting, repositioning, or augmenting the bone.

If the chin is overly prominent, excess bone may be removed, while in cases of a receding chin, the bone may be advanced or augmented with implants. Once the desired changes are made, the incisions are closed with sutures. Over time, as the bone heals and the swelling subsides, the patient’s facial profile becomes more balanced and aesthetically pleasing.

What is the recovery time for genioplasty?

Recovery time varies, but most patients need a few weeks for initial healing and several months for the final results. Swelling and discomfort tend to decrease significantly in the first two weeks.

Are there risks associated with genioplasty?

Like any surgery, genioplasty in Thousand Oaks carries some risks, including infection, scarring, bleeding, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. Dr. Fahradyan will discuss these risks during the consultation.

Will genioplasty leave visible scars?

If performed through the mouth, there are typically no external scars. However, external incisions may leave small, discreet scars, which usually fade over time.

Is genioplasty permanent?

The changes made to the chin bone are usually permanent, so the results are long-lasting.
