What Is Chin Augmentation?
Chin Augmentation or Mentoplasty is a type of plastic surgery, performed to reshape or increase the size of the chin, so that the appearance of the face is balanced . Implantation is performed to add volume to the chin, whereas bone reshaping is done to reduce the size of the chin. It can be used to correct Microgenia, if the person has a normal bite.
It is usually performed with rhinoplasty (nose job) and facial liposuction, to achieve the desired facial proportion.
Typically performed as an outpatient surgery, Chin Augmentation takes a few hours to be performed. The bandages and stitches are usually removed within a week.
A chin augmentation enhances the size of the chin by either placing an implant or adjusting the facial bones. It can also correct any deformity in the skin, birth defects and defects caused due to accidents. The procedure is an easy one and can produce noticeable changes in the chin.
