The lack of a chin according to the profile of a person causes an unfavorable impression. This defect is solved with the implantation of a silicone prosthesis that is placed through a small incision in the oral mucosa, leaving no visible scars, managing to correct the profile and oval of the face.
On the contrary, the excess of chin is corrected reducing it until obtaining the suitable profile.
Mentoplasty is one of the most practiced and most satisfying techniques in facial plastic surgery. By increasing the size of the chin the face acquires the necessary balance to achieve a harmonious and more youthful appearance.
A very small chin can be corrected through a single outpatient procedure or at the same time with other interventions such as the nose. This surgery is advanced by placing a small implant through an intraoral incision (inside the mouth), or in the neck below the chin where it is adequately camouflaged.
