Does It Make Sense to Have a Sliding Genioplasty or Chin Implant Put in While Overweight?
- Asked by Monique5032

I'm overweight, but it's quite obvious that have a receding chin. My chin doesn't go past my forehead from a profile view, and I also have a long 2cm philtrum so everything looks unbalanced, though i'm not getting a lip lift because it's an awful surgery that never looks good imo. Instead of having my skin stretch to accommodate my new chin if I get a genio while skinny, I could just get it while fat & the skin would shrink with ease to fit my chin as I lose weight. Do I make sense? Thanks! lol
Weight Loss Before or After A Sliding Genioplasty
The best way to answer your question is to see some profile pictures of you. I do not believe your weight and subsequent weight loss has much bearing on the success and long-term results of a sliding genioplasty procedure.
