Can I Do A Chin Wing Osteotomy After A Sliding Genioplasty?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I was wondering if a chin wing osteotomy is possible, after a sliding genioplasty was done? Was looking for someone in my area to ask about this but I’m not sure if there is anyone – maybe you would know. But either way I figured I would reach out to you with this inquiry as I see you have extensive experience with these types of matters.

Thank you for the info!

A: Suffice it to say that once the oblique bone cut is made from a traditional sliding genioplasty the ability to do a chin wing procedure is then lost.
