Mentoplasty, also known as chin surgery, is a cosmetic procedure used to alter the appearance of the chin and give the face a more balanced look. Using surgical implants or by reducing the area to a more comfortable size, a mentoplasty can give men and women the jawline they have always wanted and make them feel confident about their face.
Mentoplasty procedures are often combined with other procedures to maximize the desired effect. For example, patients who choose to have a rhinoplasty procedure (or nose job) may elect to have a mentoplasty procedure at the same time. The new shape and size of the nose may create a lack of balance in the face; this can be corrected by augmenting the chin at the same time. Patients who have a double chin should consider liposuction to maximize the chin augmentation results. A patient with sagging skin around the jaw might want to consider a facial treatment for the same reason.
Our faces are the first thing people notice about us. Having well-balanced facial features can make both men and women feel confident in both their personal and professional lives. Even though it is a surgical procedure, patients who have undergone the operation are back to their regular routine within a week’s time, and are happy with the results.
