Genioplasty in Tunisia : The aesthetic surgery of the chin

Genioplasty Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step in genioplasty in Tunisia is the pre-operative check-up. The surgeon asks you questions about your general health. He or she will then evaluate your face and chin structure to determine the defect and the type of plastic surgery you need.

Afterwards, he or she will discuss your expectations with you to see if they are realistic or not. He or she will also inform you of the risks and advise you of the recovery time and cost of the procedure.

Your first contact with Med Assistance regarding a genioplasty in Tunisia:

If you are interested in chin surgery / genioplasty, we will first contact you by phone for a personal consultation with your plastic surgeon through one of our medical consultants. You will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and the results you would like to achieve from this facial cosmetic surgery. Your surgeon will communicate with you to understand your expectations of this procedure and the long-term benefits. Every patient is different, and your surgeon will choose the surgical technique and treatment plan that is right for you. During your initial consultation, you should expect to:

*Respond to a medical questionnaire with a complete medical history. Include information about previous surgeries, past and present medical problems and any medications or herbal supplements you are taking.
*Provide your surgeon with clear front and profile photos to conduct a complete examination of your face, including the quality of the underlying skin and bones.
*Discuss the risks and possible postoperative complications.
*An x-ray may be necessary to determine the appropriate procedure.

How does genioplasty in Tunisia work?

Genioplasty in Tunisia can be performed under local or general anesthesia. The operation can be ambulatory or sometimes require a night of hospitalization. It lasts between 30min to 1h30.

Genioplasty chin curl:

This procedure aims to move back a chin that is too far forward. It can be done by planing the jawbone (by filing the lower edge of the mandibular bone) or by osteotomy of the chin (the excess bone is cut).

Chin surgery in Tunisia: Genioplasty of recoil:

This procedure aims to move back a chin that is too far forward, also called protruding chin. It can be done by planing the jawbone (by filing the lower edge of the mandibular bone) or by osteotomy of receding chin (the excess bone is cut).

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.

*Disclaimer: results may vary from one person to another depending on the morphology of the patients. 

  • The pain of a mentoplasty procedure in Tunisia is generally moderate. Painkillers are prescribed to help relieve them. Antibiotics may also be prescribed.

    Bleeding from the mouth is frequent but not serious. Edema of the lips and neck may appear, and can sometimes be significant. During the first few days, there is a reduction in sensitivity in the lower lip, chin, teeth and gums.

    Excellent oral hygiene is required (mouthwash is prescribed). Teeth and gums must be cleaned after each meal with an ultra-soft brush.

    As for food, certain precautions must be taken to ensure proper healing: food must be lukewarm or cold and preferably soft. Hot, spicy or acidic food should be avoided.

As far as anesthesia is concerned, during the consultation, the anesthesiologist will inform the patient of the risks of anesthesia. It is important to know that anesthesia induces reactions in the organism that are sometimes unpredictable and more or less easy to control: the fact of having recourse to a perfectly competent anesthesiologist, practicing in a truly surgical context, means that the risks incurred have become statistically very low.

It is important to know that techniques, anesthetic products and monitoring methods have made immense progress over the last thirty years, offering optimal safety, especially when the operation is performed outside of an emergency and on a person in good health.

As far as the surgical procedure is concerned, by choosing a qualified and competent plastic surgeon, trained in this type of reconstructive and aesthetic procedure, you limit these risks as much as possible, without however eliminating them completely.

Fortunately, real complications are rare following a properly performed genioplasty. In practice, the vast majority of procedures are carried out without any problems and patients are fully satisfied with their results.

However, despite their rarity, you should be aware of possible complications:

Bleeding: it can be abundant, which is extremely rare following this procedure.
Sensitivity problems of the lower lip, gums or teeth are usual and will gradually fade.
Delayed or non-union of the bone: In this case, another operation with bone grafting may be necessary.
Dental lesions: in exceptional cases, the dental roots may be damaged and require treatment.
Melting of the bone fragment: A secondary reconstruction will then require a bone graft or the placement of a chin implant.
