Facial surgery


Many people would like to change the appearance of their chin in order to gain facial proportion and confidence in their appearance. Chin surgery is a procedure that involves correcting the shape and size of the chin, usually through plastic surgery. Its shape and proportions can affect the harmony and balance of the face. Some people may feel dissatisfied with the shape of their chin and want to change it to achieve the look they want for their face. Aesthetic goals are often one of the main reasons why patients choose chin correction.

What is chin correction?

A chin correction, or mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin by improving it with an implant or reducing the bone tissue. The two main types of chin surgery are chin augmentation and chin reduction. Facial appearance and symmetry are important aspects of our self-esteem and self-confidence. Aesthetic goals are often one of the main reasons why patients choose chin correction. Depending on your preference, the plastic surgeon may perform chin reduction, protrusion or other adjustments to achieve the desired aesthetic result.

Price for chin correction is 2100 – 3000 Eur.

Why have a chin correction?

Some patients choose chin correction to improve facial proportions or appearance. For example, a patient may wish to reduce a chin that is too prominent or too curved in order to achieve a harmonious facial appearance. Sometimes the chin may be atypically shaped or sized due to birth defects or injuries. Plastic surgery can help improve these conditions by restoring the shape and aesthetics of the chin.

Procedure of the surgery

Sometimes the bone can be moved forward from the jaw itself, called a mentoplasty or genioplasty. Alternatively, silicone implants of the required shape can be used to protrude the chin. Conversely, part of the chin bone can be removed to reduce an overly protruding chin. A plastic surgeon may recommend a chin correction for a patient who has undergone rhinoplasty to achieve better facial proportions, as the size of the chin can increase or decrease the perceived size of the nose. These procedures are usually performed under local or general anaesthesia.
