JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery Study Highlights
Dario Bertossi, M.D., of the University of Verona, Italy, and colleagues examined the long-term results and complications of combined rhinoplasty (nose) and genioplasty (chin). (Online First)
The study involved 90 cases of the combined procedures performed from January 2002 through January 2004 and the main outcome researchers looked at was the long-term stability of the esthetic outcome.
For reduction genioplasty patients, 45.6 percent of the patient population had 100 percent stability after three years. If augmentation genioplasty was considered, 52.4 percent of patients had 100 percent stability after three years. The chin was stable with no more than 1 mm of recurrence, according to the study results.
"The results of the study indicate that the combined approach in correcting the facial profile is an effective procedure to achieve a more harmonic and consistent clinical outcome," the study concludes.
