Would it be safe to do an MRI on the body after a sliding genioplasty? Before MRI there be a form asking me to declare any metallic implants in the body. As there is a titanium screw to secure the chin/jaw bone together, can i choose not to tell the nurses or doctors about it?

Why on earth would you not tell the people responsible for your MRI safety about a screw in your chin??????? You need to be honest and complete with all your health care providers if you expect appropriate and safe care!
