Mentoplasty, often known as chin surgery, is a surgical technique to remodel the chin using either implant-enhancement or bone-reduction surgery.
The lower jaw line and chin region can frequently be treated with plastic surgery and other modest office operations to enhance facial proportions and boost confidence and self-esteem. Board-certified plastic surgeons usually advise these kinds of procedures to enhance the harmony of facial features and the balance of the chin, jaw, cheek, and forehead.
Chin Augmentation/ Implants
Surgery to enlarge the chin is typically done to improve an underdeveloped chin. Usually, an implant is positioned directly on the bone to do this. Either inside the mouth or beneath the chin's skin, a little incision is made. Sutures are used to close the incision once the implant has been inserted. Patients can typically resume their jobs within a week after minor edoema subsides for a few days.
Genioplasty, commonly referred to as chin augmentation surgery or chin enlargement surgery, is a type of cosmetic surgery that includes moving or reshaping the chin to balance the rest of the face. This treatment can typically be completed swiftly under local anaesthetic. It is an outpatient operation. There are surgical and non-surgical options for genioplasty. To obtain the desired results in non-surgical genioplasty, fat or fillers are used.
Chin Reduction Surgery
To lessen a prominent or overly protruding chin, chin reduction surgery, also known as chin shaving surgery, is performed. As an outpatient treatment, the surgery is often carried out while the patient is asleep. Either inside the mouth or beneath the chin's skin, a little incision is made. The chin is moulded to the correct form after the extra bone is removed. Sutures are used to seal the incision.
A chin reduction, also known as mentoplasty plastic surgery, is a cosmetic treatment to change the mandible bone's form and size to minimize the size and contour of the chin (aka the lower jaw bone or chin bone). Direct chin bone reductions improve the chin, neck, and jawline shapes in cases of macrogenism, or an excessively big jaw. For significant facial rejuvenation, a chin reduction is frequently paired with additional cosmetic surgeries such as rhinoplasty, neck lift, or facelift.

Frequently asked questions
Chin augmentations are intended to be subtle. The purpose of a chin augmentation is to balance out facial features. After chin augmentation, your chin will be in better harmony with the rest of your face.
Chin augmentation can be performed alone, or with other cosmetic procedures. Typically, the other procedures are also aimed at balancing out facial features such as the nose, cheeks, or neck. Commonly, chin augmentation can be combined with a rhinoplasty, buccal fat excision, or liposuction of the neck
Chin augmentation can make the neck look slimmer and more attractive. Sometimes, liposuction or a neck lift may be done alongside the chin procedure to further contour the neck and jawline
If the patient doesn’t like the results of their procedure, the chin implant can be removed. However, in some cases, the implant causes a depression in the bone below, which can result in less projection than the individual originally had.
