Mentoplasty which is also called plastic surgery of the chin is the surgical treatment which is used for abnormal chin positions: protruding chin (clog chin), receding chin (receding) or an over-sized, or crooked chin or one that is too small.
This problem concerning abnormal chin appearance has aesthetic consequences on the seamlessness of the contour.
A poorly positioned chin can produce several effects such as lesions of the gum, risks of loosening of the lower teeth, but it can also make it difficult to the close the lips and can sometimes cause disruption to the growth of the jaws.
Mentoplasty will try to restore a balance to the contour of the face between the jaws and the soft tissues.
In general, the chin will be operated on by an incision in the mouth, without any visible scar.
