Mentoplasty is the intervention that allows to correct the aesthetic defects of the chin.
The chin may present an exaggerated or deficient projection, affecting the aesthetics of the entire face and in particular the profile.
In the case of a deficient projection, the chin is increased by means of an implant, which can be:
- Polyalkylimide Implant: is an absolutely innovative injectable product in the medical field. After the introduction, a very fine, natural and physiological capsule is created that surrounds the substance, giving rise to a true endoprosthesis. Under physiological conditions it is a definitive implant.
- Silicone Prosthesis Implantation: Silicone prostheses are the most used for chin augmentation.
In other cases, the projection of the chin may be exaggerated and will have to be reduced.
