CHIN AUGMENTATION (MENTOPLASTY)
Chin surgery can improve the size and shape of the chin. The chin can be surgically altered in shape and size by a number of techniques. Surgery with implants can enlarge the chin or the chin size can be reduced by the removal of bone. Many patients who are interested in rhinoplasty (surgery of the nose) can also benefit from a chin augmentation, since a definite and important relationship exists between the chin and nasal shapes.
