Sliding genioplasty to correct chin position
Yes, it's definitely possible to bring the chin point forwards but not down when moving the genioplasty segment of bone. That's the versatility of a siding genio! It is all dependent on the angle of the cut in the bone.It is also possible to fill the groove between the lip and chin (mental crease) with a small portion of bone that can be spared from the bone cut for the genioplasty.
