Chin surgery


Who are candidates for a

Chin Surgery?

All those men or women who have already completed their craniofacial growth, approximately between 15-16 years, and that the chin region did not develop properly.

What do you need to know about mentoplasty?

There are several degrees of chin hypoplasia. According to an analysis performed by the plastic surgeon, the surgeon will determine whether there is the need of an implant (prosthetic material), or, in severe cases, will assess the need to cut a segment of the jaws bone and advance it.

To plan your surgery

A clinical analysis is required, based on measurements and facial proportions to determine if you are a candidate for this surgery. Sometimes a problem is associated with dental arches (micrognathia), which should be evaluated before your surgery because you may need orthognathic surgery.

Step-by-step intervention

  • This surgery can be performed under local anesthesia on an ambulatory basis in the case of mild or moderate chin hypoplasia.
  • In the case of severe chin hypoplasia, it is necessary to perform the surgery under general anesthesia or sedation, and to evaluate the in-hospital stay for one night.


Initially you will have some swelling or inflammation and mild pain that will fade away with the indicated medications. During the first few weeks you may feel a certain numbness of the chin, which will eventually give away.
You should avoid any blow or support in the area for 2-3 weeks to prevent the implant from shifting.

Your new look

The incisions will be practically imperceptible in the course of 6-8 weeks. As the swelling subsides, your chin will be smoothed and you will look better and better.
