Can a genioplasty be reversed?

I'm having second thoughts about my genioplasty, as it doesn't look as I expected. Can it be reversed?

Yes, you could have reconstructive surgery to have your genioplasy reversed. Although, keep in mind, it will unlikely look just as it did prior to your original surgery.

Yes it can and the sooner the better. The longer you keep it in the more damage can be done to the surrounding tissue and the skin will loosen.

Genioplasty can be reversed, however it is more difficult than one might think. It requires a thorough investigation of why the genioplasty is unsatisfactory. The correction can be made so long as the doctor know what is wrong, and how to fix the problem.

If not satisfied with your genioplasty, your surgeon can either replace the current implant with one of a different shape or size, or can remove it.
