  • Concurrent Platysmaplasty and Genioplasty Using a Novel Intraoral Approach. [Journal Article]
    Plast Reconstr Surg 2020; 145(1):80-83Wu RT, Timberlake AT, … Steinbacher D
  • Facial aging patients frequently seek improved neck and jawline definition. Microgenia, or lack of chin support, is often overlooked or underdiagnosed in these patients. The authors propose a simultaneous genioplasty, in addition to platysmaplasty and face/neck lift, to address both soft-tissue and bony components, and enhance the cervicomental area. The platysmaplasty is performed in a novel fas…
  • Autologous Fat Grafting to the Chin: A Useful Adjunct in Complete Aesthetic Facial Rejuvenation. [Journal Article]
    Plast Reconstr Surg 2018; 142(4):921-925Rohrich RJ, Sanniec K, Afrooz PN
  • The chin makes up the central unit of the face and neck, and is a significant factor in facial harmony and aesthetics. Historically, correction of microgenia required surgical intervention with a sliding genioplasty, or placement of a permanent implant. However, these techniques require more extensive surgical intervention, prolonged downtime, with higher costs and complications. Furthermore, chi…
  • Intraoral Prosthetic Chin Augmentation With Vertical Incisions. [Journal Article]
    J Craniofac Surg 2018; 29(3):774-777Yin J, Fan S, … Jin G
  • To explore a new surgical approach for chin augmentation using a prosthesis with 3 intraoral vertical incisions whereby placement of the prosthesis is more convenient and accurate, with fewer postoperative complications. Following the anatomic characteristics of the chin, a bilateral mucosal vertical incision and a median observation incision are made. The V-shaped mark on the upper side of the p…
  • Treatment Approach to Severe Microgenia Cases: Combined Use of Osseous and Implant Genioplasty. [Case Reports]
    J Craniofac Surg 2018; 29(2):e175-e179Findikcioglu K, Sibar S, Gulsen A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Chin contour is an important part of facial aesthetics and osseous genioplasty is the ideal treatment option for the correction of most chin deformities. However, in some serious microgenia cases, osseous genioplasty may be insufficient to correct the existing deformity. In such cases, it is seen that the combined correction procedures to be applied together with the implant use can be applicable in terms of the safety and its long-term results.
  • Bone resorption under chin implants: The orthodontist's role in its diagnosis and management. [Case Reports]
    Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2017; 151(1):201-208Polo M
  • Alloplastic chin implants have been a valuable treatment modality for the correction of microgenia. Their use has provided satisfactory esthetic results by improving facial balance. However, bone resorption under these implants can occur. Case reports of 4 patients with the incidental radiographic finding of the presence of chin implants are presented. All 4 subjects had lateral cephalograms and …
