Sliding Genioplasty vs. Chin Implant
It is difficult to answer this question without a physical exam and impossible without photographs. Please consider posting with some front and profile pictures so that we can make an more accurate comment. In general a sliding genioplasty will pull the neck musculature forward and an implant will not do that. Pulling the neck musculature forward tends to lead to a nice result in the redundant tissue in the neck. The implant can pull some of the skin forward though and that may be enough. But again, without photos it is impossible to tell you which route is best for you. Best of luck.
Genioplasty versus a neck lift plus chin implant
A neck lift involves removing fat above and below the platysma muscle, a platysma plasty , to contour the soft tissues of the neck. A chin implant may or may not be needed to advance the front part of the chin if it's recessive.
A genioplasty is typically performed in the hospital setting, wall a chin implant/neck lift is performed as an outpatient procedure in a surgery center
