Chin reduction or genioplasty for chin in galoshes or chin liposuction : Presentation

 Genioplasty is an aesthetic chin surgery procedure, which aims to modify the volume and shape of the chin, in order to recreate a harmonious face from the front and profile. 

There are 2 types of chin :

  • Retrogenic chin or Retrogenic : the chin is insufficiently developed. This aspect often increases the defects of the nose and gives an elongated appearance of the nose.
  • Chin too protruding, ” galloping ” or Progenie: the chin is too strong, too advanced, too thick.

Doctor Richard Diacakis, a plastic surgeon in Paris, treats most chins that are too protruding or “galloping” by simple liposuction. Indeed, Dr. Richard Diacakis considers that in most cases of chin too thick, too protruding, a large component of fat participates in the thickening of the chin and therefore can be simply aspirated, without having to perform heavier operations such as milling or genioplasty by osteotomy.  

Similarly, Dr. Richard Diacakis most often recommends an injection of hyaluronic acid instead of a chin implant, as he considers that the projection result is similar, more precise, without any further operation, without any risk of complications, much cheaper and with a duration of effect of several years.  Aesthetic medicine nowadays allows us in certain cases to avoid surgery with equivalent or even better results.

Before a chin
liposuction operation

During the consultation, Dr Richard Diacakis, a plastic surgeon in Paris, will confirm whether it is possible to perform a simple chin liposuction or whether bone surgery is necessary. Indeed it is essential to differentiate between a thickening of the chin fat or bone. Often both components exist and a simple liposuction of the chin is enough to give complete satisfaction.  

Dr. Richard Diacakis will give you a consent, an estimate and a prescription of the necessary medication. No medication containing aspirin should be taken in the 15 days preceding the liposuction. Liposuction of the chin is always performed under local anesthesia. Admission is on the morning of the operation. The doctor will see you in the morning in your room before the operation to take preoperative photos and draw the area to be removed, simulating the result you can expect. 

You will be discharged the same day. You should allow 1 day’s rest after returning home. This is a cosmetic surgery operation: it is not covered by social security. 

What happens during a
chin liposuction operation ?

Chin liposuction is always performed under local anaesthesia as it is not very painful. The micro-incisions are made with a needle and are therefore invisible. The chin liposuction lasts about 30 minutes and is performed with a very fine, foamy cannula, adapted to this location. A compression bandage will be applied in the operating theatre. 

After the chin
liposuction operation 

A shower is possible the next day. It is not necessary to stop your sports or professional activity except in special cases. This operation is very painless and always on an outpatient basis.

The refinement result in chin liposuction is like a classic liposuction with a visible result at 1 month and definitive between 3 and 6 months. Bruises are rare and will disappear if they occur within 10 to 15 days. Pain, although very moderate, can be relieved by simple analgesics.
