Chin surgery (Mentoplasty)

Introduction

The male chin is generally squarer in appearance whereas the female chin is much less angular and rounded to the middle. There is often a significant difference in height between the bottom of the chin and lower lip and in males this distance is greater.

 

There are various methods of remodelling the curvature of the chin, as well as chin advancement to correct regression or projection and restore facial harmony. All incisions are intraoral with no visible scar and maximum attention is focused on protecting the mental nerves. Chin and jaw surgery can create a harmonious feminising outcome.
