Menthoplasty

Plastic on the chin allows you to change not only the size and shape, but also rejuvenate the lower face.

CONSULTATION ABOUT DR.BEBYKH

Menthoplasty is the surgical correction of the shape and size of the chin (increase or decrease). The chin protuberance can be enlarged either by implants or by using your own fat. The method is determined taking into account the patient’s pronounced problem and anatomy.

The size of the protuberance depends on the structure of the mandibular bone (including the angle of attachment of lateral branches). Normally, the angle should be 125 degrees. It is possible to draw a conditional vertical line from the tip of the nose to the middle of the lower jaw to determine the proportionality of this area. The angle should be at a distance of 2-3 cm from the nose tip to the middle of the lower jaw to determine the proportionality of this zone.

Plastic on the chin allows you to change not only the size and shape, but also rejuvenate the lower face. The procedure is popular with both women and men who want to make their profile more expressive and proportional. Chin correction is often combined with rhinoplasty. The price of menthoplasty depends on the chosen method.

Important! The operation to remove the second chin is in two stages: pumping out fat deposits and plastic skin tightening.

CHIN PLASTIC INDICATIONS

  • an underdeveloped chin protuberance that creates a bird’s face effect;
  • a protruding chin, whipped;
  • lower jaw heavy, wide (“horse” face);
  • asymmetry;
  • traumatic injuries;
  • congenital defects.

Types of plastic surgery on the chin

Chin mentoplasty is performed in Kiev by several methods. In order to create a longer chin and a larger chin, you will need an implant. Chin enlargement with the implant is also recommended when the patient has a small, underdeveloped lower face area.

After the operation, the face becomes more attractive and clear lines and contours of the jaw appear. The augmentation of the chin allows for complete correction and formation of a new chin.

Implants can be made of silicone or cartilage of the patient. Chin prosthetics are performed under general anesthesia. The procedure lasts no longer than an hour. The surgeon makes the incision may be internal (between the lip and gum) and external (along the lower submandibular fold) and inserts the prosthesis. The incision is sutured and a special bandage is put on the face.

The chin protuberance can also be corrected by using lipofilling (using the patient’s fat cells). This method is considered to be minimally traumatic and allows filling in the existing voids. The chin lipofilling operation is performed within one hour.

Chin Reduction Operation

Chin reduction can be performed in combination with liposuction to remove the second chin and excess fat tissue. The procedure is carried out because of the aesthetic indications, as with its help you can get beautiful features, align the proportions and get rid of existing imperfections. Slimming is also done after significant weight loss, when the skin loses elasticity and firmness. The surgeon tightens the skin and eliminates the defect.

The operation is under general anesthesia. Duration of 2 hours or more. During the intervention, the doctor partially removes the bone and moves the chin back, fixing it in the right position. The incisions are made on the skin or mucous membrane. Consistently, the process looks like this:

  1. The chin is narrowed by removing part of the bones from the sides of the lower jaw;
  2. The protruding chin is corrected by an osteotomy. The osteotomy also helps to make a small magnification. In this case, the doctor moves part of the protrusion forward to correct the beveled chin and increase its volume. During the procedure, the doctor dissects the mucosa and periosteum and uses special saws to perform all the necessary manipulations. Afterwards, he fixes the new position with titanium plates;
  3. The asymmetry is removed by resurfacing the bone.

This type of intervention is only done in conjunction with a maxillofacial surgeon.

Important! Before plastic surgery, you should visit the dentist, undergo a comprehensive examination, roentgen and take tests.
