Mentoplasty, or in layman’s terms, chin augmentation, is a cosmetic procedure that can reduce or increase the size of the chin. Depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals, chin augmentation generally aims to enhance a “weak chin” or reshape deformities. Chin asymmetry is also correctable through chin augmentation.
Consult with the board-certified plastic surgeons of the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery if you would like to discuss mentoplasty in further detail. The procedure is designed to create a more aesthetically balanced face and is often combined with rhinoplasty. The procedure is typically over within an hour and has a minimal recovery period depending on the technique used.
