Information on treatment and surgeryGenioplasty

Generally, reducing the jaw length and narrowing a wide jaw is easier than making a short jaw longer. ZEAH Dental Hospital pursues fundamental genioplasty over using prosthesis and aims to provide a safe and tailored surgical method with Zeah’s years of experience in multiple genioplasty procedures.

A natural result that is combined with a well-balanced facial shape is important.
Genioplasty for aesthetic purpose must be safe but also ensure facial symmetry and balance, as well as a natural look. The bone resection surgery must be skillfully performed the first time as insufficient experience can result in a reduced bone but an unnatural look. ZEAH Dental Hospital thoroughly diagnoses the thickness and condition of the bone to perform precise surgery in minimal time, delivering a safe procedure and satisfactory results.
