I had sliding genioplasty on my chin and needed revisionary
Patient :I had sliding genioplasty on my chin and needed revisionary surgery on it because of surgical error in placement of the bone. After this, my mentalis muscle droops below the border of my jawline and wrinkles/dimples. I had yet another surgery to resuspend the muscle by temporarily suturing it to my braces and this failed. Has this procedure EVER been successful? I have not found one single case or person who had had their iatrogenic chin ptosis corrected. If it makes a difference, differently placed intraoral incisions were used each time, so I assume the mentalis was cut at different spots each time.
Thanks for the query.
It could be possible that the procedure has not been successful. Every procedure has a failure rate which varies from person to person. Healing and appearance depend on the age, location of the wound, regularity pf treatment, etc.
In your case, there could be one of the factors preventing healing.
Consult another doctor for an examination and opinion.
Feel free to write back for further clarifications.
Hope this helped
