What is a Chin Surgery?

Chin surgery or mentoplasty is a surgical procedure used to modify the size, shape, projection or symmetry of the chin regarding the face.

This procedure may be augmentation or reduction, depending on the case of a chin with very small or big projection. Augmentation mentoplasty is usually performed by placing a silicone implant through a small submental or intraoral approach.
