Correct chin and cheekbones with mentoplasty and malaroplasty:
a choice devoted to facial harmony
The shape and size of the chin and cheekbones greatly influence the harmony of a face . A face with poorly developed or flat cheekbones and cheeks, in fact, has an unattractive and sensual appearance.
The increase in the prominence of the cheekbones and cheeks can give a flat or hollow face a more youthful appearance. Similarly, increasing the projection of a too short and receding chin makes the face more balanced and attractive. This type of correction is also able to reduce the aesthetic impact of a nose that is a little too pronounced. The profile, in fact, is made up of the relationship between the forehead, nose and chin: if the chin is receding, even a nose that is slightly larger than the norm may seem decidedly more protruding.
How are chin and cheekbones implants made?
Current implants have highly anatomical shapes and the final result can be accurately customized.
According to the needs, it is possible to choose the prosthesis conformed in the most suitable way to make the result pleasant and natural. The prostheses have various sizes in order to make it possible to correct an underdeveloped chin (mentoplasty) in the most appropriate way in each case. Similarly, if indicated, one can proceed on slightly pronounced cheekbones (malaroplasty).
The prostheses are made with a highly biocompatible material which has the advantage of correcting defects in a very natural way.
How mentoplasty and malaroplasty are carried out
The interventions do not cause post-operative pain and can be performed alone or together with other interventions on the face such as face lifting, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty etc.
The scars are not very visible because they remain well concealed within the natural folds of the skin.
For chin plastics, a small incision is used that can be made on the mucosa inside the lower lip or on the skin below the fold of the chin. The prosthesis fits under the membrane that covers the bone (the periosteum) in direct contact with the bone, to which it is permanently welded. The result has a completely natural look and texture.
For the cheekbones, proceed in the same way, with an incision along the ciliary margin of the lower eyelid or from inside the mouth. If the surgery is carried out together with a facelift or blepharoplasty, the access routes offered by the other interventions will be used instead.
What type of anesthesia is used
According to the patient’s preferences both interventions can be performed under local anesthesia with outpatient regimen or under general anesthesia with 1 day of hospitalization.
Do you have questions about mentoplasty and malaroplasty?
Read here first.
No, once implanted the prosthesis has an indefinite duration.
No, the prosthesis remains fixed to the bone on which it was placed and not even a trauma can move it.
The implants are made of pure, inert medical grade silicone.
No, the prostheses are free of reactivity and completely inert, so they remain in the tissues where they are placed indefinitely.
No, because it is located very deep, under the soft tissues of the face and adheres to the bone without moving.
No, it remains inert under the fabrics and becomes an integral part of them.
There are prostheses of various sizes that are chosen based on the correction to be made to obtain a natural result.
Yes, they have been around for many years and now have a follow-up of several decades.
