Should I have Hypedynamic Chin Ptosis Correction Before or After Mini-V Line Surgery?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Hello, I have dynamic/ hyperdynamic chin ptosis. I‘ve planned to get a V-line Surgery in Seoul in some months, where the blunt and wide tip of the chin is cut off by osteotomy, and unnecessary bone parts are cut out, which are reassembled at the bottom center. My question is can I have the surgical treatment for dynamic/hyperdynamic chin ptosis afterwards? I would like to get both surgeries done.
Have a nice day!
A: I am very familiar with that form of mini V line surgery since I frequently perform it myself. There is no question that hyperdynamic chin ptosis correction should be done AFTER this surgery since the loss of supportive bone structure will make the hyperdynamic chin ptosis worse. Or if done before would eradicate any positive benefit from the hyperdynamic chin ptosis correction.
