Can I Get Chin Implant After A Sliding Genioplasty?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m interested in discussing a chin implant overlay. I’ve had a previous sliding genioplasty and would like to get a broader chin and smooth out the minor bone irregular from the genioplasty cut.

A: Overlaying a prior sliding genioplasty between getting a specific aesthetic change as well as to adequately cover the posterior bony stepoffs is optimally done with a custom chin implant design.
