Online Consultation Before and After

What is
GNG Genioplasty?

  • A Genioplasty is performed if you wish to improve and correct a mildly receding, long, or flat chin. Once surgery is decided, a customized surgery method must be implemented to yield satisfaction after operation.

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

- Pre-diagnosis -

  • X-Ray

    Horizontal and vertical ratio of the end of the chin, as well as overall angles of the face and jawline

  • 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 the lower jaw, soft tissue and nerves and then draft and execute a 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.

Receding chin

Procedure to bring the end of the chin forward

An osteotomy is performed at the end of the chin and is brought forward and fastened. This procedure not only improves the side view image but also gives a slender face line even from the front.

  • Different methods of Chin Osteotomy

    At GNG Hospital, we don’t just stick to one type of chin osteotomy method. There are several approaches to consider in carrying out the surgery and it can be modified depending on the patient’s condition. There’s no definition of which chin osteotomy method is better or worse. Instead, we are confident in delivering satisfaction to patients by choosing the most effective osteotomy method based on each patient’s condition.

    Usage of the HEPA filter ventilation system in all operation rooms.

    What is a HEPA filter ventilated operation room?

    The air outside the operating room is filtered cleanly by the HEPA filter and circulated inside.

    Because air is circulated by providing clean air through a positive pressure system, you don’t need to worry about infection caused by air pollution thus having surgery with confidence.

    Also, there is an air-shower system that shakes off contaminated dust before entering the operating room. We strive to do our best in preventing infection through sterilization and thorough infection control of all medical devices.

    Be rest assured! GNG’s operation rooms are meticulously clean.
