Combined Sliding Genioplasty with Functional Septorhinoplasty and Neck Liposuction and Platysmaplasty
This Seattle sliding genioplasty patient wanted to improve his overall facial proportions including getting a more refined jawline and less fullness under the chin. He also had significant snoring at night. Dr. Lamperti noted that the patient had a short chin vertical length along with being somewhat recessed. He also had some excess fat in the submental neck area that was amenable to removal. Dr. Lamperti noted that the patient would benefit from tightening of the neck muscles in the area as well. The patient is shown before and 1 year after having a sliding genioplasty procedure in which the patient's chin bone was brought both forward and downward. Submental liposuction was also done along with corset platysmaplasty in which the neck muscles were sutured together. You can note a much more masculine appearing and more harmonious overall facial proportions following this neck and chin repositioning. The patient did also have functional nose surgery to improve his chronic nasal congestion related to a deviated nasal septum and nasal pinching using septoplasty, spreader graft and lateral crural strut grafting techniques. The patient noted much improvement to his snoring following surgery as well.
