Chin surgery (mentoplasty)

Specialty of Plastic surgery

Mentoplasty or chin surgery, is a surgical procedure that aims to change the size of the chin to achieve a more proportioned and handsome face, correcting congenital facial asymmetry or asymmetry caused by an accident. Depending on the purpose of the intervention, the specialist will apply the most appropriate technique for each patient. If it is required to correct the shape of the chin or give it a more defined and toned look, then the techniques applied could be the implantation of a prosthetic chin, infiltration of fat tissue from the patient, or the advancement of a portion of the jaw bone. If the deformity of the chin is very accentuated it will be necessary to sand or remove a bone segment (osteotomy) through an incision inside the mouth.
