A well defined chin helps give balance to the face and creates a major part of one's profile. Mentoplasty, or chin augmentation, is used to enhance the profile and/or facial contours and balance.
A pleasing, balanced profile can be achieved by:
- Inserting an implant
- Moving the bone forward to build up a receding chin
- Reducing a jutting or too prominent chin
- Submental liposuction in which excess fatty tissue is removed to redefine the chin or neckline
- Performing a facelift and neck lift, with tightening of the muscles of the neck.
When there is a contributing problem of dental malocclusion, or birth defects in the structure of the jaw itself, surgery of the jaw can improve the form and function of the lower face and greatly enhance appearance.
The goal of chin surgery is to bring balance to the face as described above. Important factors to discuss with your surgeon include:
- Skin type
- Ethnic background
- Individual healing rate
Your surgeon can also provide information on new medical techniques for chin surgery and offer recommendations for supplementary surgery that can ensure the greatest improvement.
