WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE DECIDING ON MENTOPLASTY

Mentoplasty, known as jaw shaping surgery, is the best cosmetic procedure performed to achieve a balanced facial appearance. It is possible to strengthen the jaw structure with an implant or to shape it by reducing the jawbone. In this way, a jaw contour that is compatible with the patient’s face can be created. In order to find out what you need to know before you have mentoplasty surgery, Turkey Medicals member and Antalya hospital Otolaryngologist Op.Dr. tells us more…

MENTOPLASTY IS A PROCEDURE THAT DIRECTLY AFFECTS A PERSON’S FACIAL APPEARANCE

Mentoplasty in Antalya, which is performed to reshape the jaw area, is a procedure that can be fully adapted to the needs of the patient. It is possible to increase the forward and/or downward projection of the jaw with implants or by changing the position of the bone within the scope of mentoplasty. Mentoplasty can also be applied to reduce the protrusion of the jaw by shaving the bone.

According to Operator Doctor; “Mentoplasty is actually an umbrella term covering all surgeries that change the jaw and the relationship of the jaw with the rest of the face. The general principle of treatment is the improvement of facial harmony through the provision of proportionality with other facial elements. Mentoplasty can be combined with rhinoplasty to ensure an optimal face ratio.”

Mentoplasty, which is based on the reshaping of the jaw by enlarging or reducing it, strengthens the profile of the person thanks to the improvement of the appearance of the weak jaw. Bone and/or tissue and muscle be removed to reduce the jaw.

THE MENTOPLASTY PROCEDURE CONSISTS OF DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS

In the mentoplasty procedure performed for the purpose of jaw augmentation, an incision is made in the mouth. The pocket created for the implant to be inserted is placed in front of the jawbone. Then, the implant is fixed with stitches.

In the mentoplasty procedure aimed at reducing the jaw, an incision is also made through the mouth or under the jaw. After removing excess bone and/or tissue and muscle, the tip of the jaw is shaped. If necessary, a part of the bone is removed, the jaw is repositioned, and the incision is closed with stitches.
