Evolution of Noninvasive Orthognathic Surgery/Genioplasty

Orthognathic surgery has traditionally been performed via invasive procedures, to include using a bone saw to alter the mandible and advance the jaw forward. This can be done cosmetically, or for medical conditions such as dental misalignment and airway collapse causing apnea and other medical conditions. Noninvasive jaw and chin surgery typically does not address such medical issues, but can improve cosmesis in patients who are not happy with the appearance of their lower face. This is commonly performed through the use of chin implants as well as both temporary and permanent filler materials, sometimes referred to as “liquid genioplasty”
