Chin surgery – mentoplasty

The shape of the chin (as well as the shape of the nose) is important for the proportion of the face. Therefore, thanks to its correction, by enlargement or reduction, you can achieve a significant improvement of the facial features. Chin surgery is a procedure that affects the overall appearance of the face and helps the patient to find satisfaction and balance.

Three solutions are used in the treatment of chin surgery, selected individually to the needs of the patient based on the assessment and interview with a specialist physician.

Autotransplantation of fat tissue
An exceptionally low-invasive method of autotransplantation of fat tissue – Vaser Lipo – can be used to achieve a shapely chin. It involves taking the patient’s fat tissue from another part of the body and transplanting it into the chin to model the right shape. Read more about Vaser Lipo.

Chin implants are often used together with the plastic surgery of the nose to produce a balanced proportion of the entire face. Interestingly, some patients consider their nose to be too large, while in fact correcting the chin proportions causes an optical reduction of the nose. During the procedure, the structure is corrected and a permanent implant or another biocompatible material is used to construct the right shape and size. Patients usually return to work after a week to 10 days, but swelling and bruising may persist for several weeks.

Jowl plastic surgery
In the case of a chin surgery that requires interference with the bones, the procedure lasts from 1 to 2 hours. Your plastic surgeon cuts the skin on the chin, around the mouth or inside the mouth to precisely shape the bone. Due to the stitches, during recovery, it is advisable to take only liquid foods. Discomfort and pain are controlled by appropriate medicines. Swelling may persist for several weeks.
