Mentoplasty

Information

The chin is one of the cornerstones of facial aesthetics. Its size and shape are crucial in giving and taking away grace from the face.
Patients who want to improve their chin are usually quite young as a chin defect can create discomfort from an early age.

TYPOLOGIES:

REDUCTIVE MENTOPLASTY consists of reducing the chin bone itself by means of an operation that is performed from inside the mouth, leaving no visible scar.
This operation requires general anaesthesia and a 1-night stay in the clinic.

ADDITIVE MENTOPLASTY, on the other hand, involves the use of silicone implants that are inserted from inside the mouth, leaving no visible scars.
This operation, unlike the previous one, can be performed under local anaesthesia and in day hospital.

Post-surgery

All MENTOPLASTY operations may involve slight pain in the postoperative period and patients may require analgesic therapy for a few days.


The postoperative course involves the patient having a predominantly liquid diet for the first postoperative week so as not to stress the surgical wounds inside the mouth.


There is generally no bruising but only swelling of the chin, visible for about 7 to 10 days.

Antibiotic and anti-inflammatory therapy is mandatory.
