Mentoplasty – Chin Enhancement

The chin and the nose are the most essential factors in a face profile. Together they determine symmetry and balance. To correct the chin contour there are a couple of alternatives which can also be carried out. A plastic surgery procedure which reconstructs the existing bone structure with or without an artificial implant, a liposculpture of the neck and the cheek and a neck lift with soft tissue enhancement of the chin. This surgery can take place on an outpatient basis under intravenous sedation. It’s a surgery which can be performed in the morning and by evening you are fit enough to go home. While carrying out a chin implant the surgeon gets access through the mouth so as to avoid visible scarring.

Cosmetic surgery is a delicate procedure, though thousands are performed worldwide. Patients should be extremely careful and fully informed on the institute or hospital they are going to be treated at. The qualifications and experience of those performing the surgery are extremely crucial. You want to be assured you are in safe hands and you get your desired look.

Inserting of a chin implant as per technicalities could take 30 minutes to an hour. The size and shape is selected to enhance the appearance. There is a small incision created and the implant is inserted inside the mouth or in the skin under the chin area.

There are also consultants who often lack experience and formal training. It is imperative to check out the credentials of the clinic and of the surgeon who is going to treat you. There are ways to check surgeon’s registration as well as to fully satisfy all your queries. It shouldn’t be that the surgeon just performs these surgeries as a side profile. It is necessary to understand the risks and the expected outcome.
