  • 1-1,5 hours
  • 12-24 hours
  • 1-2 weeks

Chin surgery, mentoplasty, corrects the shape, size or position of the chin, either increasing or reducing it to achieve a facial harmony.

Indicated for...

Men or women from eighteen years old whose chin is too depressed or, on the contrary, too prominent.

Before surgery

First visit

We carry out a physical examination and a personalized interview.

We analyze your complete medical history

We study the clinical state of the facial bone structure and especially the jaw and chin, as well as the maxilla and the position of the teeth.

We value the state of the skin:
-elasticity
-turgor
-fat tissue

Type of procedure

The surgery is performed in a surgery room, usually with local anesthesia plus sedation and in some cases with general anesthesia.

Two lateral incisions are performed to detach the tissues above the chin bone and create the pocket with the right size to place the prosthesis. Subsequently we close the incisions through absorbable stitches.

Recovery

The first 24 hours

Normally, mentoplasty does not require hospitalization, except in very specific cases.

Once the procedure is over, patients can come back home with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication and the specialist indications.

From the first day

During the first days it is normal to feel discomfort, swelling in the face and headache which can be treated with medication and the use of cold compresses.

The incorporation into daily life is relatively quick, in about two days, but the full recovery requires a minimum of two weeks.
