My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

Chin implant surgerychin augmentation surgerygenioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery are closely related procedures, usually performed in order to improve contours of the chin, neck and jawline.


Although these procedures are technically different, chin implant surgery, chin augmentation, genioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery can be performed in just one setting. 

What is the difference between them? 
Chin implant surgery – This procedure uses an implant prosthesis to provide both men and women patients with better facial features balance – usually, it adds more projection to the chin 
● Chin augmentation surgery - The jaw bone is directly enhanced in order to achieve the desired result
● Sliding genioplasty surgery – The chin bone is cut and then repositioned to a more appropriate location – this procedure typically adds more vertical height to the chin 
● Mentoplasty surgery – This procedure is performed in order to reduce the sizes of the chins or correct any malformations of the chin caused by abnormal jaw bones 

Chin augmentation surgery, chin implant surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery and mentoplasty surgery are very popular choices among both patients and surgeons from all around the world because of the effectiveness as well as the simplicity and safety of the procedures. These surgeries can be performed either individually or in coordination with rhinoplasty or a neck lift procedure.

Patients who want to benefit from the advantageous cost of medical tourism abroad, travel to countries such as Turkey for their chin implant surgeries to meet the skilled surgeons, to have the best healthcare and to get a comfortable recovery. 

Preparation

Patients need to quit smoking at least a month before and after the surgery. Blood thinners such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, herbal teas and supplements are forbidden for at least 2 weeks before the procedure.

How It Is Performed

Prior to surgery, x-rays of the chin and face are taken and the surgeon decides on which parts of the chin area to modify based on these x-rays.

Depending on the patient’s expectation and his or her facial balance, one of these procedures can be performed: mentoplasty surgery, sliding genioplasty surgery, chin augmentation surgery or chin implant surgery.


Anesthesia choice for these procedures can be local or general. Incisions can be created inside, in the mouth or outside, right under the chin.

If the patient requires a chin implant, the surgeon will create a small pocket in front of the chin bone but under the muscle in order to place the implant. 

Different types of implants can be chosen, general options are: 
● Bone grafted from the patient 
● Fat tissue 
● Silicone implant 
● Biological inserts 

An artificial chin implant is one of the most preferred options as it has a lower risk of developing complications such as infections. The surgeon may also create cuts into the jaw bone or remove and reposition the chin bone for a better effect.

Recovery

The average chin implant surgery recovery period lasts around 3 weeks. Patients usually return to work and normal activities in around 2 weeks. Patients need to sleep face-up, their heads should be elevated, for a minimum of 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. It helps control post-op swelling and protect the incisions. 

Around 80% of the post-op swelling will gradually disappear in 3 weeks. Patients should avoid chewing for the first few days after the procedure – liquid or soft foods can be consumed during this time.

Risks

Chin implant surgery risks and complications can include: 

● The shift in implant position
● Asymmetry 
● Infection 
● Scarring around the incision area

Side Effects

Chin implant surgery side effects can include: 
 

● Anesthesia side effects
● Swelling 
● Lower lip numbness 
● Hematoma (internal bleeding)

Success Rates

Chin implant surgery reviews set the average success rate at 94%.

Before And After

Results are immediately noticeable after chin implant surgery. Patients need to avoid chewing for a few days and also avoid smoking for a month after the operation. These precautions will help reduce surgical scar and allow the body to heal better. The post-op swelling will pass in around 3 weeks, but the bone, if altered, will continue to heal over the course of a year.

Faq

Can Chin Implant Surgery Be Combined With Other Procedures?
Definitely – plastic surgeons recommend combining chin implant procedure usually with rhinoplasty. That way, it is easier to achieve a pleasing facial balance and harmony.  

When Can I Resume Sports?
Sports or any other effortful physical activities need to be avoided for at least 3 weeks after chin implant surgery. 

Can The Implant Affect Shaving?
Absolutely not – male patients will be able to shave as normal, approximately one week from the operation. Electric razors or shavers can be used again around 10 days after the procedure.
