Chin & Cheek Bone Surgery

This surgery has evolved in the last 20 years. Chin surgery was done mainly as an Orthognatic procedure, in which the boney chin button was moved forward. It was a hospital procedure and involved significant down-time and quite costly. Over the years this surgery has changed to be mainly an implant type of surgery. At first silastic implants were used, now however I almost solely use Medpor Implants. Medpor Polyethylene implants have a long history of successful use in trauma repair.
