In order to reach facial harmonization, the mento (chin) region must be aesthetically harmonized with the rest of the face and obey certain limits regarding its dimensions. In the general population, it is common for it to be in a more advanced or more withdrawn position, which compromises the beauty and harmony of the face. For both situations there is the possibility of surgical correction.
Mentoplasty aims to correct retro positioning (retracted chin), and this is done through the inclusion of an implant molded for the region. Today there are prostheses of different shapes and different products in order to achieve chin augmentation. Through a small cut below the chin, we insert the implant. The patient is discharged on the same day of the intervention. The result is noticeable already in the first days, becoming evident after two weeks. The main purpose of this surgery is to improve patient’s physiognomy balance, while retaining its individual characteristics.
