Mentoplasty is surgery in which we seek to improve chin projection, thus improving its aesthetic appearance and facial harmony. In the Mentoplasty an incision inside the mouth is created, a very accurate pocket is created and then the soft silastic prosthesis is placed to achieve the required harmonious and aesthetic appearance.
Mentoplasty aims to increase or decrease the size of the chin, thus achieving harmony and balance with the other factions.
Most chin implants are made of silicone, are firm but soft, their placement is more accurate and can usually be very easy.
Solid implants, usually synthetic, whose most common material is solid silicon. Unlike implants used for breast augmentation, the solid silicone implants does not rupture or cause leak in the body.
