CHIN SURGERY

The Mentoplasty consists of the placement of silicone or polyurethane prostheses to project the jaw to a harmonic level to those patients who have the chin retracted. The incision is made intraoral, the procedure is performed with intravenous sedation and local anesthesia, can be accompanied by rhinoplasty (nose surgery).

You should do special mouthwashes and you can return to your social activities between seven and nine days.
