What Is The Risk Of Severe Bleeding During A Sliding Genioplasty?

Q: Dr. Eppley,Hello. I love your work.  It is so wonderful to see a surgeon that is so talented and passionate about the outcomes of every procedure.

I wanted to ask in regards to a sliding genioplasty in your experience what is the risk of severe bleeding during and post operatively on a healthy patient that does not take any medications. 

Thank you.

A: Of the potential risks and complications of a sliding genioplasty, severe bleeding during surgery or a postoperative hematoma is not one of them.
