Genioplasty: Mentoplasty: What is it?
Mentoplasty: What is it and how is it achieved?
Mentoplasty or chin augmentation is a facial surgery that allows you to reshape and improve the size of the chin. Mainly, it seeks to obtain harmonic dimensions with the rest of the factions.
Thanks to this procedure, it is possible to achieve a more aesthetic and profiled face, with surprising results in facial balance.
Having a very short or receding chin is the main reason why some people resort more frequently to specialized clinics to undergo this type of procedure.
Currently, chin surgery can be carried out through various techniques:
- Implantation of a prosthesis: it can be made of different materials, such as silicone or Goterex®. Under the effects of general anesthesia, an incision is made inside the mouth or in the skin below the chin to allow the placement of a facial prosthesis.
- Infiltration of fatty tissue: the patient’s own facial fat is used as a natural filler in order to restore, give volume or reshape the contour.
- Advancement of a portion of the jaw bone: in this case and with an intraoral incision, the bone is displaced and immobilized so that the defect can be corrected.
On the other hand, it must be taken into account that mentoplasty can also be achieved without the need for a surgical operation. Chin augmentation without surgery is performed by infiltration of hyaluronic acid, to achieve the desired shape, or through bioplasty. However, unlike surgery, this procedure does not achieve a permanent effect.
