Can I feel the screws when I touch my chin after Genioplasty?

Hi, I am interested in a genioplasty, but I have a question, is it possible to feel the screws when you touch the chin with your fingers?

Hi,

The simple answer is no.

There are 2 ways of performing a genioplasty.

1) is a sliding genioplasty: This involves cutting the bone and advancing it the required distance. It is held in place with plates and screws. These are deep to muscle, so shouldn’t be felt.

2) Implant geioplasty: In this instance, a customised implant is placed on the bone. This too is screwed in place, but also deep to the soft tissue.

I hope this helps.

Should you need a consultation let me know and I will get my practice manager to call you.
