Mentoplasty or chin surgery is a quick and simple surgical procedure that offers incredible aesthetic results on the chin. From a small intraoral incision, the chin bone is approached and the surgeon makes the necessary movements to harmonize the patient’s face. This is also called a bony genioplasty.
There are several ways to perform this procedure:
Advancement, or moving the chin forward.
Backward, or moving the chin backward.
Side-to-side, which can help with asymmetrical chins.
Vertical changes, such as lengthening or shortening the chin.
