Leaky chin surgery Tunisia: Advancement genioplasty :
This procedure can be done using two techniques:
*Chin prosthesis (placement of implants). The prostheses can be made of silicone or Medpor (POREX), and come in different forms (central prosthesis, prosthesis with small lateral wings).
*The choice depends on the defect to be corrected, the patient’s preferences and the surgeon’s opinion. The implant is inserted through an incision in the lower jawbone. It is thus hidden by the fat and muscles of the chin.
*Chin advancement osteotomy. The chin bone is cut horizontally to produce a bony fragment. This fragment is then advanced and fixed to the chin with metal plates and screws.
