It is the surgical name of removing congenital or accidental problems that occur in people's lower or upper jaw. The procedures performed in the jaw surgery include chin file, jaw extension, jaw reduction, forward or backward operations. The most appropriate procedure for the patients with the jaw tip is the jaw prosthesis. This procedure is based on the size of the prosthesis to be chosen by the surgeon or by a small incision made under the chin.
The operation takes about an hour. It is done under general anesthesia. The patient stays in the hospital one night. The most important thing in this procedure is that the patient maintains himself / herself against the impacts on his / her chin for a period of 1 week. At the end of this 1-week period, the patient can easily return to his / her social life.
In the jaw tip reduction process, the chin section is made to be more compatible with the face.
