Advantage of
GNG Genioplasty

Point 1 Rigorous tests are performed prior to surgery
to decide the safest and the most effective surgery plan

Different osteotomy method must be selected during surgery depending on the shape of the bone and the location of nerves.
To identify the type of chin shape, rigorous prior tests must be executed. It is especially important to correctly identify the location of nerves and make surgery plan to ensure no nerves are damaged during osteotomy process.

- Pre-diagnosis -

  • X-Ray

    Horizontal and vertical ratio of end of the chin, as well as angle of jawline and overall shape of lower jaw is examined

  • 3D-CT

    Nerve locations are identified

Point 2 Categorized osteotomy methods to maximize effect ↑

There are different osteotomy methods to improve the shape of the chin. We conduct close examinations to identify the size of lower jaw, soft tissue and nerves and then draft and execute surgery plan for the most ideal v-line angle and the most appropriate amount of reduction in the chin. As all of this is planned in advance, we are able to reposition the end of the chin in a way to create the most ideal v-line face.
