The development of the bones in the face is completed by the age of 18. Therefore, chin reconstruction procedures are preferred after the age of 18. If the jaw is larger than the face, the bone that forms the excess or the tip of the chin is taken back. If the jaw is small in comparison with the face, the tip of the jaw is brought forward or enlarged using implants. Small jaw problem is usually accompanied by arched nose and double chin. Problems occurring in the jowl area can be solved to some extent with these procedures. With the development of technology, procedures for correcting the deformities in the jaw have become easier to do. The demand for jaw reconstruction has increased. With the jaw reconstruction surgeries, which are also called genioplasty surgeries, a more proportional ratio can be achieved and a more suitable jaw structure can be created.

About Jaw Tip Reconstruction (Filing)

The chin is of great importance in ensuring the proportion of the face. Jaws that are smaller than they should be, too close to the neck area, far ahead or behind, or have a pointed appearance compared to the face, are rendered more aesthetic with surgical procedures.

Jaw tip reconstruction surgeries are more preferred if the chin is small. In such problems, the jaw can be advanced or configured using silicone, titanium, medpor implants. In the small chin problem, the arched and curved nose, and the tendency for the jowl sag are among the most common complaints. Correction of the side profile image by interfering with the nose and chin is called profiloplasty. With this process, the ratio of nose and chin is provided, the problem of the double chin is reduced and a younger appearance is obtained.

In cases where the chin is too big compared to the face, the chin can be reversed or the bone that forms the excess is removed. If the size of the excess area is small, only filing is sufficient. Care is taken here to ensure that the patient does not have a chewing problem.

The problem of size and smallness in the entire lower jaw sometimes affects the harmony between the teeth. There are problems with chewing. The compatibility of the teeth in the upper and lower jaw is also ensured by orthognathic surgery.

The operations are completed in an average hour. Jaw reconstruction surgery is performed with general anesthesia. Therefore, it is necessary to stay overnight in the hospital after the procedure. The procedures are carried out with incisions made through the mouth, so there is no visible scar. It is one of the processes where success rates are high and recovery is fast.

Jaw Tip Aesthetic Deformities

The structure of the chin is one of the most important factors in ensuring the proportion of the face. It affects the entire face. Cosmetic problems in the chin directly affect the overall appearance of the face. Many problems can be corrected with jaw reconstruction, such as the the size of the chin, its distance from the neck, its position too far ahead or behind, the sharpness of the chin, the curves of the chin being undefined, or other asymmetries. In addition, jaw dimple closing or forming is also possible with chin reconstruction.

How is Chin Tip Filing Surgery Performed?

Before the chin tip reconstruction surgery, the patient is examined. The operation is planned taking into account the expectations of the patient. The method to be employed is determined. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. The incisions can be opened through the mouth or at the bottom of the chin. Filing, shrinking or enlarging using the implant is made according to the needs of the patient. The surgery is terminated by closing the incisions.

If there are conditions such as jaw curvature, chewing disorder, chin surgery is performed. These operations can also modify the shape. The lower jaw and upper jaw can be intervened together, or the problem can be solved only by interfering with the lower jaw.

If the side profile problem is caused by both the nose and chin, both nose and jaw reconstruction can be performed during surgery. This process takes longer.

Jaw reconstruction surgeries are completed in 60-90 minutes. Depending on the condition of the jaw, this period may be up to 3 hours. After the operation, it is necessary to stay in the hospital for 1-2 days. Fluid feeding may be required in the first days of the post-operation. If the operation was performed on one side, the patient resumes his normal life after 1 week. If applied to the lower and upper jaw together, this period will be 2 weeks.

Who May Have Jaw Reconstruction Surgery? Am I Eligible For Surgery?

Jaw reconstruction is recommended for those over 18 years old with cosmetic concerns because it is necessary to wait for the jawbone to complete its development. But if there are chewing problems or serious problems affecting the patient’s psychology, it can be performed at an early age. People with diseases that adversely affect wound healing should state this when they consult a doctor. In addition, if there are some diseases that may pose a risk in general anesthesia, it should be stated. There is no upper age limit for jaw tip reconstruction.

Jaw tip reconstruction surgeries are performed in people who have problems with jaw and face proportion or who have deformities in the chin. Jaw reconstruction can be performed on people whose jaws look adjacent to the neck, whose jaws are too small or large, or those who have asymmetries on the chin. In addition, the general proportion problem on the face can also be solved.

Surgical Methods

Jaw plastic surgery can be performed to solve many problems. Micrognatism of the chin behind the normal is called prognatism. In addition, the chin may be smaller or larger than desired. It may not be providing face proportion. A suitable method is preferred for each problem.

In the configuration of the jaw, the problem is determined. Accordingly, the technique is determined. If the chin is behind, the problem can be solved by advancing the bone. Likewise, the bone standing too far can be taken back. If the problem with the jaw is that the bone is too large, excess bone can be removed. Smaller sized surpluses are filed. Various implants are placed if the chin is too small for the face.

Orthodontic surgery is also performed in cases such as lower or upper jaw skew. This process is generally performed orally.

Hospital Conditions for the Operation

Before the operation, some preparations are made according to the technique and anesthesia to be applied. After the procedure is completed, the patient stays in the hospital for 1-2 nights. After that, if the condition is appropriate, the recovery process continues at home.

Anesthesia

General anesthesia is frequently used in jaw reconstruction surgeries. Therefore, eating and drinking are discontinued for a certain period of time. After the operation, it is necessary to stay in the hospital for at least one night. In general anesthesia, breathing examination is provided by the anesthesiologist. The patient is unconscious. At the end of the procedure, anesthesia drugs are stopped and the patient is awakened.

Is Intensive Care Needed?

Generally, intensive care is not required after chin tip reconstruction surgeries. An unexpected situation is unlikely to occur.

Do I Need a Companion?

It is useful to have a relative to help the patient for 1-2 days after the operation in the hospital. When the patient is discharged, there is no problem in walking or doing their daily work.

Devices Used in Surgery

The devices used in jaw reconstruction surgeries vary according to the technique to be employed. If orthodontic surgery is performed, materials such as titanium plates and screws, melted plates and screws, wire seams, wire and arcs placed on the teeth, external fixator can be used. Orthodontic surgery has aesthetic results even if it is not done for cosmetic purposes. In plastic surgeries, implants of various materials can be used when necessary.

Stereoscopic Facial Surgery Performed With Jaw Tip Filing Surgery

In case of a smaller diameter excess at the tip of the chin, the excess forming bone is filed. It is brought to the shape suitable for the face. These procedures can be performed together with nasal surgery and stereoscopic facial surgery to improve the overall appearance of the face. Stereoscopic facial surgeries are applications that aim to achieve harmony in many areas of the face in a single operation. In general, stereoscopic imaging is among the most effective 3D surface imaging techniques. It provides a general recovery and rejuvenation of the face.

Are Stereoscopic Facial Surgery and Endoscopic Facial Surgery the Same Thing?

Endoscopic facial surgeries are lifting procedures applied to different areas of the face. It is different from stereoscopic facial surgery. Endoscopic facial surgery can also be performed with jaw tip reconstruction and gives effective results. Basically, incisions are opened in invisible points, the tissue to be stretched is displayed endoscopically and the area is relocated in the desired places. Endoscopic facelift can be used on eyebrows, middle face area, in some cases, neck area.

Jaw Tip Filing Surgery Statistics and Success Rates

Jaw tip reconstruction surgeries give results that are largely consistent with the patient’s expectations and the overall face. It is difficult to give a single success rate since chin tip reconstruction is used in the solution of many complaints.

Who is the Operation Team?

Plastic surgeon, assistants, examination team, anesthesiologist, operating room staff, nurses, healthcare professionals participate in the jaw reconstruction surgeries. If there is a malfunction of the jaw function (such as a problem with closing the mouth), an orthodontist is included in the surgery.

Jaw Reconstruction Surgery Prices

Prices of jaw reconstruction surgeries are variable. Prices are determined according to many different factors such as the technique to be applied, the hospital where the surgery will be performed, which problem in the jaw to be solved, the materials to be used during the procedure and the post-procedure. But mainly what action will be applied to the chin affects the price. Enlargement of the tip of the jaw usually takes less time than downsizing. This difference is reflected in the price. The net price information for the patients can be obtained from the institution they visit.

Before Jaw Reconstruction Surgery (Filing)

Before the chin tip operations, the patient’s jaw problem and expectations are evaluated. It is important to express the expectations clearly in the meeting with the doctor. But these also need to be realistic. Then the images of the jaw are taken from different angles. The image planned to be formed after the operation is created over these and shown to the patient. On the day of the operation, the patient comes to the hospital at the specified time. Some of the examinations are done on the day of surgery. The tests required before surgery are usually blood tests, anesthesia examination, physical examination, imaging tests. There are some precautions that the patient should take before the operation. Attention is paid to these and the procedure begins after completing the preparation for the operation.

Examinations

Before the jaw reconstruction surgeries, some examinations are requested according to the complaint and the technique to be performed. These provide information about the patient’s general health and jaw structure. It affects the course of the operation. Imaging tests, physical examination, blood test, x-ray, anesthesia examination and other routine surgery tests are usually performed before surgery. If necessary, the doctor may order other tests.

Physical Exam

Physical examination is carried out by the doctor. Patient information is obtained beforehand. It is basically performed in five processes. Visual evaluation is called inspection, palpation to feel by hand, percussion by finger touch, auscultation to examine using a stethoscope. Necessary evaluation is done before chin tip reconstruction.

Imaging Tests

Imaging tests are used to observe the jaw joint and surrounding tissues. X-ray, sound wave, magnetic fields, radioactive particles can be used to visualize the internal structures of the body. With the help of them, images of the structures and textures inside are taken and evaluated.

X-ray

X-ray is the method used in imaging especially the bone structures of the body. X-ray shots are done without pain and pain. During the procedure, the patient is exposed to some radiation. The process is performed by passing X-rays through the region where the image should be taken. It is an important examination for the examination of the bones that will be treated before jaw reconstruction procedures.

Blood test

The blood analysis is usually performed with sample blood taken from the vessels in the arm with the help of an injector. Sample blood is passed through various laboratory analyzes. Many tests such as blood count, biochemistry tests, coagulation assays can be performed with sample blood. All of them are commonly called blood tests. It gives important information about the general health of the patient before the surgery.

Anesthesia Examination

Anesthesia examination is usually performed by the anesthesiologist on the day of surgery. Here, information about the general state of health and diseases is collected. During this examination, the patient should inform about their allergies, if any. In addition, conditions such as regular medication and alcohol use should be specified. Information about the previous operations the patient has received is also obtained. It is investigated whether there are any problems in the respiratory tract. In addition, the psychological state of the patient is observed. With this examination, risks that may arise from anesthesia are tried to be prevented.

Other Routine Tests

There are some routine tests required before every plastic surgery. These are done even if there is no suspicion of disease. Determination of blood group, biochemistry tests, PT, APTT, HBs Ag, anti-HIV are among the routine tests performed before surgery.

Should Smoking and Alcohol be Stopped Before Surgery?

Smoking poses great risks when under general anesthesia. It affects the respiratory system badly and delays wound healing. Therefore, it should be stopped at least 6 weeks before surgery. Alcohol use also increases the risk of blood. Smoking and alcohol should be stopped some time before the surgery.

Sharing the Medicines Used with the Physician

There may be medications used by the patient constantly. These medications usually include blood thinning medications. It can be used before and after surgery under the supervision of the doctor. In addition, vitamin supplements with a blood thinning effect are to be discontinued. Likewise, antibiotics, steroids, tranquilizers can be dangerous under anesthesia. Therefore, all medicines used should be reported to the doctor before the procedure.

Preoperative Blood Thinning Drug Use

For other diseases, the medication may be used by the patient. Among these drugs, especially blood thinners should be done under the supervision of a doctor. Because these drugs cause bleeding during surgery. Simply, aspirin also has a blood thinning effect. These drugs can be used under doctor’s supervision. In addition, vitamin E dilutes the blood. If a vitamin supplement is taken, it should be reported to the doctor, and if necessary, it should be discontinued.

Antibiotic Use

If the patient wants to undergo surgery, all the medications he uses should be under the supervision of the doctor for a certain period of time. Antibiotics can interact with anesthetics during the procedure. This can lead to undesirable situations.

Other Medicines

Except for many drugs that should be discontinued, if patients use steroids and sedatives, they should be discontinued before surgery under the supervision of a physician. The reason for these is the concern that it may cause problems related to anesthesia. Diuretics cause potassium and fluid loss. This can endanger the patient during the procedure. Calming drugs lower blood pressure. In this case, the patient may be in shock. In order not to face such a situation, the patient should tell his doctor about the drugs he uses, in order not to encounter any problems during the operation.

Examinations About Treatments Received and History of Disease

Before the procedure, the doctor should be given complete information about the previous treatments. Previous diseases, their treatments, surgeries, if any, and the type of anesthesia should be explained. In addition, the general health of the patient should be examined. All of these are necessary to minimize complications that may occur during and after the procedure and to shorten the healing process.

Necessary Tests for Jaw Tumor and Similar Diseases

If there is another problem besides cosmetic disorder in the jaw, probabilities arise with the examinations. Jaw tumors are also benign tumors that are often caused by problems with tooth growth. When it is noticed, it must be removed. If it was noticed before the plastic surgery, it is necessary to intervene the tumor first.

Preparation of the Operation Method and Operation Plan

The technique of the operation is decided according to the complaint in the jaw and the condition of the jaw. For example, if there is a slight size at the tip of the chin, filing is sufficient. In cases not suitable for filing, extra bone is removed. The course of the procedure to be performed in the light of the general condition, expectations, needs and examinations of the patient is planned.

Reconciliation and Psychological Preparation of the Patient

Before the operation, the patient is informed in detail about the procedure. The course of the operation, how it will be performed, how long it will take, the process and risks after it are described. If the patient has questions in his mind, they are explained and their concerns are resolved. The patient and the doctor agree on the procedure.

Preparation for Surgery

Before the jaw reconstruction surgeries, the environment in which the operation will take place, the team to perform the operation, the patient is made ready for surgery. Materials to be used in the process are provided. Surgery is planned according to the technique to be used and the condition of the patient. Details of the surgical procedure are shared with the patient.

Preparation of the Operating Room

The operating room is prepared for the procedure before the procedure begins and the patient is anesthetized. All technical equipment to be used in the process is made ready for the process. If there is any malfunction, it is fixed. Frequently used devices in operations are disinfected with special solutions.

Preparation of the Surgery Team

Before the operation, the team makes the necessary preparation. In particular, the surgeon provides hand and nail cleaning. This cleaning is carried out for five minutes by washing and brushing hands and under nails with iodine solution. If the surgeon has a wound in his hand, he first closes the wound and wears double gloves.

Preparation of the Patient

Usually, the patient is hospitalized one or two hours before the day of surgery. Blood samples can be taken during this time. The vascular access is opened. The clothes required for the operation are worn. The patient should not apply nail polish, should not use hair gel, and should not bring his jewelry with him while coming to the hospital. It is also beneficial for the patient to choose comfortable clothes.

 

Nutrition and Diet Before Surgery

Some time before the surgery, eating and drinking should be stopped, and smoking and alcohol should be stopped. In addition, consuming healthy foods increases the speed of recovery.

Food and Drink Abstinence

Eating and drinking is stopped six hours before surgery. The reason for this is to ensure that the patient’s stomach is empty while under general anesthesia. Otherwise, foods inside the stomach may go up and escape into the trachea. Such a situation is also life-threatening.

Hospitalization

The patient usually goes to hospital a few hours before surgery. Some medications can be given here to help him relax. After the necessary preparations are completed, the surgery begins.

After Jaw Tip Reconstruction Surgery (Filing)

The patient is awakened under the supervision of the anesthesiologist after surgery for the chin tip surgery. Then he is taken to the normal room. You should stay here for a night or two. He is discharged after the necessary follow-ups are made. Recovery after surgery occurs quickly.

Operation Day

After the procedure, the patient is awakened, it is expected to get rid of the effect of anesthesia. The awakening of the patient takes place in the recovery room. Then he is taken to his normal room. She stays in the hospital for a night or two. In some cases, it is not necessary to stay in the hospital. It is carried out as soon as possible after the operation.

Pain

Pain may be felt mildly with the effect of the drugs given on the day of surgery. Pain may occur in the next period. These can usually be controlled with painkillers. Paying attention to the points indicated by the doctor also relieves pain.

 

Movement

Swelling felt after surgery may restrict jaw movements or the patient may be reluctant to walk and become active. Movements in the jaw also improve day by day. But in the postoperative period, it should not be lifted heavily, keep the head up and bend over.

Standing up

After the operation, the patient is raised and run as soon as possible. Thus, regulation of blood circulation is provided. The patient can usually walk easily after one night, as the effect of anesthesia passes.

Dressing and Check-up

The stitches made in the surgery are usually in the mouth. Therefore, dressing cannot be done. While the patient is discharged, an appointment date is also given for the doctor’s check-up. This check-up is usually set for one day in the first two weeks. The doctor will evaluate the healing process.

Nutrition and Diet

The patient must be fed liquid foods for six days after the end of the surgery. Then he can return to his normal feeding routine. During recovery, it is recommended to stay away from cigarettes and alcohol. If other nutritional measures are required for the patient, the doctor will indicate.

Drug Use

Drugs that should be used after surgery are prescribed by the doctor. These should be used regularly for the specified period. The use of antibiotics after the procedures is important to prevent the risk of infection. Antibiotics should be used regularly for at least a week. Medicines must be taken within the specified time intervals without interruption.

Follow-up Period

The general condition of the patient is observed during the hospital stay. Depending on the condition of the swelling, how the patient feels, and the need for intravenous fluid delivery, the time spent in the hospital also varies. In some cases it is not necessary to stay in the hospital, in some cases it is necessary to stay under surveillance for a night or two.

Risks, Side Effects, Complications

Like every surgical procedure, chin tip reconstruction also involves some risks and complications. Some of these are extremely rare, and some occur frequently. A number of measures are taken to minimize or control risks and complications. The patient should also be sensitive about this issue. It is also important to inform the patient about this issue before the procedure.

Infection

There is a risk of infection after each surgical procedure. This condition can be treated but when it occurs, it prolongs the healing process. Therefore, a series of measures are taken during and after the procedure. The patient is given antibiotics to use for the required time. Taking medications without interruption prevents the risk of infection.

Edema

Swelling in the mouth area is expected for a while after the operation. After a few days, it subsides and passes. If there is a swelling that does not exceed, it is necessary to consult a doctor.

Swelling

Swelling occurs in the treated area for a while. These will lighten up in a few days. The bumps can remain for 3 months, albeit mildly. Swelling usually occurs in the mouth, under the chin, and on the cheeks. To reduce these, it is useful to sleep using higher than normal pillows.

Bruises

Bruises are often accompanied by swelling. The degree of their formation varies from patient to patient. It is quite mild in some patients. With bruises, bruises become lighter day after day.

Bleeding

In the days following the surgery, light blood may leak from the area where the sutures are located. The incisions are usually made orally. Therefore, dressing or dressing cannot be done. The bleeding may be from the area of the sutures or from the nose. This situation takes several days. If there is an abnormal condition, it is necessary to consult a doctor.

Blood Accumulation

The accumulation of blood may progress towards the tip of the chin and cause bruises running towards the neck. In this region, swelling occurs. Although the swelling is getting lighter day by day, it may take 3 months for the actual shape of the chin to appear.

Long-Term Problems

Nerves close to the lower jaw can be damaged during chin tip surgery. In such a situation, loss of sensation may occur under the lower teeth, lower lip and cheek. Loss of feelings usually pass within 6-12 months, but if the damage is greater, numbness can be permanent. Similarly, if the facial nerve near the area is damaged, some movements of the lower lip are restricted. In addition, problems may arise in wound healing. Healing problems often occur in patients who smoke, have malnutrition, or have diabetes.

Anesthesia Complications

Anesthesia carries some risks. In order to prevent these, an anesthetic examination is performed and a series of measures are taken. Thus, the probability of experiencing risks is significantly reduced. In general, nausea and vomiting occur after anesthesia. This situation passes in a short time. A clot can form on the legs, which brings swelling and pain. Although rare, this clot can be thrown to other organs. Depending on the organ it is going to, it may pose vital risks. The patient is carried out in order not to experience circulation problems after the procedure. Some areas in the lung may go out and cause microbial diseases. A heart attack and stroke may occur. Smoking and overweight increase vital risks.

Allergic Reactions

Allergy may develop against some drugs used before, during and after surgery. This situation is immediately intervened. It is important to inform the doctor if the patient has allergies that he knows before the operation.

Things to pay attention to

There are some issues that the patient should pay attention to while the recovery continues after the operation. When necessary care is taken, recovery is accelerated, many of the complications are prevented.

Showering

Since surgical sutures are usually in the mouth, there is no problem in contact with water. But while taking a shower, it is necessary to be careful to keep the head up and not bend. After the patient is discharged, he can take a shower by paying attention to the necessary points.

Talking

It is useful not to talk too much in the first days after the procedure. It is useful to be comfortable about this and inform the people about the situation.

Chewing

Chewing is not performed for at least 3 days. In the first days, it is necessary to eat liquid foods. Then, depending on the situation, soft foods are started to be chewed. Normal nutrition and chewing can be started after feeding with soft foods takes 2-3 days.

Sleeping Position

It is necessary to pay attention to the height of the pillow in order to make the swelling formed around the chin easier to pass. While sleeping, the head should be kept above normal. The head can be raised by placing several pillows on top of each other. Thus, swelling is easier to pass.

Hot-Cold Sensitivity

Fluid should be fed for a while after jaw reconstruction surgeries. In this process, it is useful to stay away from very hot or very cold foods in order to avoid irritation of the region. More care must be taken, as the stitches are inside the mouth.

Drug Use

Drugs prescribed after surgery should be taken regularly for the specified time. The use of antibiotics prevents the risk of infection. Therefore, it should not be disrupted. If the medications that are used continuously are stopped before the surgery, they are started again under the supervision of the doctor.

Sexual intercourse does not cause any problems after discharge. But the position of the head should be paid attention and kept above. Care should be taken in terms of the region after the operation.

 Stitches

If the incisions were opened through the mouth during the surgery, the sutures would be of the type that would melt. It does not need to be taken. Melting period is 1-2 months. Sometimes these can be accidentally swallowed or spit. Such situations do not pose any problems. If the incision is made on the skin surface, this usually happens under the chin. It is taken one week after surgery.

Hygiene

One of the most important issues in the prevention of infection risk is oral hygiene. The doctor prescribes the solution that should be used. The solution is diluted and used daily for about a week. Additionally, it is recommended to gargle with some mixtures. These are salt water, mouthwash and water, oxygenated water. It should be applied during the day as directed by the doctor. It is necessary to gargle each time after eating. Solutions and mouthwashes reduce bacteria in the mouth. While brushing the teeth, the areas where the seams are should not be touched. It is more convenient to use children’s brushes instead of normal toothbrushes. It is necessary to brush more carefully and lightly than usual. It is necessary to start external brushing 3-4 days after surgery.

Special Care After Surgery

Vaseline-derived creams are given after surgery. These are applied to the lips regularly. To ensure oral hygiene, the mouth should be rinsed with the solutions given after each meal and then rinsed with some recommended mixtures. Tooth brushing starts after 3-4 days. When brushing, seams should be avoided, gentle movements should be made and a children’s brush should be used.

Revision Surgery

In rare cases, another surgical procedure may be required in addition to surgery. This is not very common. Generally, the expected appearance in jaw reconstruction is provided in a single operation.

Post-Operative Expectation and Psychology

During the healing process, swelling and bruising in the region, issues to be considered, may affect the psychology of the patient. It can lower your motivation. It is helpful to be patient and comfortable until the full shape of the chin is revealed. If any, concerns should be shared with the doctor and information should be obtained. Jaw reconstruction are largely successful and natural results. When the shape of the chin appears, expectations are usually met.

Sports

During the recovery process, it is beneficial for the body to be active and to do some exercises. But the first 3 months should not be interested in sports. When necessary, a report can be issued regarding this situation.

Nutrition and Diet

Due to the sutures being in the mouth and jaw functions, surgery directly affects nutrition. It is necessary to pay special attention to nutrition for a while after surgery. It is of great importance not to go beyond the points indicated by the doctor about nutrition.

Fluid Consumption

In the days following the surgery, the patient is fed with liquid foods. Liquid nutrition continues for 3-6 days. In this process, it is necessary to take care not to take solid food, though a little. When feeding fluids, it is also necessary to pay attention to the nutrition of foods. Malnutrition slows healing.

Soft Food Consumption

After feeding with liquid foods for the specified period, it is started to consume soft foods gradually. Nutrition with soft foods takes 2-3 days. During this period, solid, hard foods are not taken. Then, it can be restored to the normal feeding routine.

Nutrition

Healthy nutrition is important for wound healing to proceed as it should. Taking care of nutrition during the healing process also protects against possible risks. It is useful to consume enough water during the day and to pay attention to vitamin, mineral and protein intake.

Doctor Check-ups

The first check-up after the operation is done for 7-15 days. Then it continues as often as the doctor deems necessary. Doctor check-ups should not be stopped. If anything unexpected occurs, it is important to consult a doctor outside of the routine check-ups.

Healing Process and Final Result Observation

The general condition of the patient can be discharged from the hospital when the swelling level in the region is appropriate. When he returns home, he needs to be careful for a while. It is also important to comply with the doctor’s remarks in this process. It takes 3-7 days for the patient to return to his social life, job or school. There are some things that you should pay attention to for a while after returning to your daily routine. After a period of up to 3 weeks from the top of the operation, the results begin to be observed. But it takes 3 months for the chin to get rid of swelling and take its full shape.
