Mentoplasty / Chin surgery

The chin is the area that harmonizes the transition between the face and the neck. A well-projected and balanced chin demarcates the jaw and this is why little can be disguised from a chin without the proportional measures. In the men, a strong and pronounced chin denotes masculinity. In women, a delicate and angled denotes femininity.

Mentoplasty is surgery to improve the appearance of the chin by inserting an implant specially designed for this area or by grafting the patient’s own fat.
