What Safe The Risks Of Post-Genioplasty Release and Fat Grafting?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi, could you tell me all of the risks involved with your post-genioplasty procedure of intra-oral release and fat graft? Also how long does recovery generally take? And can this procedure help to raise the lower lip a bit to cover the lower incisors more / reduce lip incompetence? 

Thank you!

A:The only real risk of post-genioplasy release and fat grafting is how well/effective it would be.

One of the goals of the procedure is to raise the lower lip a bit….the hardest post-genioplasty sequelae to improve long-term.

Recovery is much more rapid than the original sliding genioplasty,. being a week to 10 days at most.
