Chin Surgery - Mentoplasty for Men
Chin Enhancement | Reshaping | Reduction Surgery, also called Mentoplasty reshapes the so called “prominent” chin, improving the contour of the chin and therefore the overall harmony of the facial features resulting in a more elegant jaw line.
Symmetry in face
The chin plays an important part in the symmetry of a Men’s face. Chin Reduction Surgery, also called Mentoplasty reshapes the so prominent chins, improving the contour of the chin and therefore the overall structure of the facial features resulting in a balanced masculine jaw line.
Sometimes where the jaw is very prominent, as with an excessive underbite which braces have not been able to correct, then a more radical surgery (Mandibular Osteotomy) is also performed to reduce the lower jaw’s overall length and allow the teeth of the lower jaw to be positioned naturally behind the upper teeth when the mouth is in a closed position.
Mr Ferrando will discuss all aspects of the the Chin Reduction procedure suitable to you at your consultations.
