Mentoplasty (also called Genioplasty) is a surgical procedure that aims, through various means, an increase in the projection of the chin.
It is a surgical procedure that offers incredible aesthetic results on the chin or jaw of the patient. From a small intraoral incision, the chin bone is approached to harmonize the patient’s face.
A silicone prosthesis is implanted, which can be of variable dimensions, having a texture and hardness that resembles bone, thus preventing a notable difference between a natural chin and one that has been improved by the prosthesis.
The approach can be intraoral or thru the neck below the chin. The procedure is ambulatory, so it does not require hospitalization.
It is a simple procedure that is performed under local anesthesia in the operating room. It is an ambulatory procedure, so it is not necessary to hospitalize the patient, allowing correction of the facial shape.
It is a minor surgery that will cause minimal localized inflammation that spontaneously resolves in 5 to 7 days.
