The mentoplasty is the surgery whereby the chin size is permanently increased using a silicone implant. Improve your profile, lengthen your neck and mark your features.

This surgery can be performed in the office under local anesthesia in combination with other minor surgeries (ex. Bichectomy, neck liposuction) or in the operating room package with major surgeries (ex. Rhinoplasty, Ritidectomy).
