Chin deviation is generally the visible reflex of a mandibular asymmetry. The difficulty in obtaining a symmetrical result exists, but it can be minimized with the appropriate surgical technique. This article reports the mentoplasty technique with wedge osteotomy performed in an individual with a right-sided chin deviation. Three osteotomies were performed vertically and equidistantly, forming a bone wedge on the contralateral side of the deviation. Horizontal repositioning associated with the rotation caused by the vertical impaction of the chin after bone wedge removal was effective in solving esthetic problems of facial asymmetry, meeting the patient's main complaint...

Importance: Because of the soft-tissue envelope and the dimensional complexity of the muscular contraction of the mentalis muscle, the projection and shape of the chin is not determined by only the bony projection. In a subset of patients with a seemingly underprojected chin, a hyperactive, high-riding mentalis muscle contributes to a blunted chin contour. Objective: To evaluate the use of onabotulinumtoxinA (botulinum toxin A) for improving chin aesthetics in patients with an underprojected bony chin and a high-riding hyperactive mentalis muscle...

INTRODUCTION: It has been suggested that mandibular setback surgery, combined or not with maxillary advancement as a treatment alternative for patients with mandibular prognathism, can induce changes in upper airway space (UAS). Therefore, this study aimed to assess the response of the upper airway in the oropharynx region of patients with Class III skeletal pattern that underwent bimaxillary orthognathic surgery (maxillary advancement and mandibular setback) combined with mentoplasty...

BACKGROUND: Gender dysphoria refers to the discomfort and distress that arise from a discrepancy between a person's gender identity and sex assigned at birth. The treatment plan for gender dysphoria varies and can include psychotherapy, hormone treatment, and gender reassignment surgery, which is, in part, an irreversible change of sexual identity. Procedures for transformation to the female sex include facial feminization surgery, vaginoplasty, clitoroplasty, and breast augmentation...

Chin deformities are commonly encountered defects in patients seeking rhinoplasty. Careful preoperative evaluation may identify patients who could benefit from concurrent augmentation or reduction mentoplasty. Alloplastic chin implants and sliding genioplasty represent the main accepted methods of chin augmentation. Although both procedures may be used for retrognathia or microgenia, the sliding genioplasty may also be used in chin asymmetry, prognathia, and vertical height discrepancies. This article outlines the methods to analyze the chin, and discusses the treatment options available for correction of chin deformities as an adjunct to rhinoplasty...

Various treatment strategies have been proposed to perform the aesthetic surgical correction of asymmetric deformities of the mandible. These techniques range from relatively simple to complex procedures including bimaxillary surgery associated with complex mandibular osteotomies. The authors describe a patient with grade III Goldenhar syndrome, treated by a "chin wing" mentoplasty as described by Triaca. These situations are classically treated with a bilateral sagittal splint osteotomy (BSSO) in combination with mentoplasty...

OBJECTIVE: Rhinoplasty is the most common facial plastic surgery procedure. The appearance of the face must be considered as a whole to achieve the best results, but assessment of the chin is often overlooked. The aim of this paper was to determine the need for mentoplasty after rhinoplasty. METHODS: Adobe Photoshop CS6 (Adobe Systems, San Jose, CA) was used to analyze 200 consecutive rhinoplasty patients, 170 of whom were included in this study. We used Silver and Agarwal's method for assessment of the chin...

BACKGROUND: The goal of mentoplasty is to improve chin projection. Traditionally, this is accomplished by either mandibular osteotomy or alloplastic implants. However, these procedures are not free of complications. This report describes gliding mentoplasty, a novel, simple technique for chin projection. METHODS: The 12 patients in this study underwent gliding mentoplasty. By means of a 2-cm intraoral incision, a subcutaneous dissection was made in the caudal direction...

A receding chin, colloquially known as a weak chin, is a significant aesthetic impediment to a pleasing face. Multiple techniques exist to evaluate the poorly projecting chin, but most are imprecise when it comes to choosing the proper implant size. This choice is further complicated by the impracticality of commercially available chin implants. Most implant manufacturers offer only three to four categories of implants (small, medium, large, etc) that differ in size from one company to another, making the choice of the proper implant size a real challenge...

The neck has always been one of the most difficult areas to manage in rejuvenation surgery. Even patients with adequate results after a facelift may be dissatisfied because of the appearance of the neck. Moreover, not all neck problems are the same in all patients. Some cases only require fat removal to obtain good results, whereas others require complete neck- and facelift to achieve the desired results. This article offers a detailed step-by-step description of the approach to aesthetic pathologies of the neck, tailored to the needs of each individual patient...

Canadians have committed themselves to a healthier lifestyle, and many are seeking to look as well as they feel. For patients with realistic expectations, modern techniques of cosmetic facial surgery can enhance appearance and be of psychological benefit. Today most procedures can be done under local anesthesia on an out-patient basis. Facial contour defects can be improved by means of procedures such as rhinoplasty, mentoplasty, otoplasty and malarplasty. Facial rejuvenation surgery to decrease the signs of aging includes the forehead lift, eyebrow and eyelid lift, rhytidectomy, liposuction and chemical peeling...

In orthognathic surgery, Le Fort I osteotomy is one of the most often used methods for the correction of dental-facial deformities and is considered technically safe. However, this procedure may lead to diverse complications, including uncommon vascular complications. A clinical case is described of late development of pseudoaneurysm in one of the branches of the maxillary artery in a 20-year-old patient who had undergone Le Fort I osteotomy, bilateral sagittal osteotomy of mandibular branch, and mentoplasty and subsequently treated with embolization...

Augmentation mentoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure to correct chin retrusion or microgenia which usually requires placement of an alloplastic material over the pogonion, and which results in increased chin projection and a more aesthetically balanced facial profile. Polypropylene mesh is easy to purchase, widely available in a general hospital and most commonly used by general surgeons. In this series of 192 patients, we wanted to demonstrate our simple mentoplasty technique using prolene mesh that can easily be combined with a rhinoplasty procedure, with possible causes of infection and the rationale for using prolene mesh in such procedures...
