Sliding Genioplasy

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I'm thinking about deciding between mandibular advancement surgery or sliding genioplasty for a small chin. I have heard though that genioplasty can roll the bottom lip inward and cause faces to look older and mouths small. It's the main reason I wouldn't do it. I don't want to have a good side profile just to ruin my front.

Does anyone know why the lip roll happens and has it happened to any of you? photos would be appreciated just of the lip for anonymity if you like.

People say if it is done properly then it won't happen however I need to know more information before deciding. Does this happen with mandibular advancement too or is it just sliding genioplasty?  Can anyone recommend any surgeons? I'm looking at Stephen Gibbons or Richard Wood currently. Thanks for your help!
