Chin enlargement (mentoplasty)

Chin enlargement may be indicated in case of a receding chin that affects the facial profile unfavourably.

Under local anaesthesia, an implant is guided through the mouth and fixed with sutures underneath the lower lip. Such implants are very well tolerated and cannot be distinguished from normal tissue when palpating the lower jaw. The sutures are self-absorbed.

An alternative and less invasive method is to enlarge the chin with a nanofat graft, which causes less swelling (see nanofat grafting).
