Mentoplasty is a procedure designed to give your chin a stronger appearance, balancing the general look of the patient’s face. This procedure is purely aesthetic and doesn’t affect the patient’s jaw or teeth.
Before the procedure is performed, the patient’s face is measured and a profile study is carried out to determine the shape and size of the implant.
Mentoplasty is performed through an incision inside the mouth through which an implant is placed above the periosteum of the chin and below the muscle. The implant is easily assimilated by the patient and the final results look natural and harmonic.
This is an ambulatory procedure, meaning the patient will be able to return to normal activities within three days’ time.
