Mentoplasty, commonly called chin enhancement surgery, is done to either enhance or reduce the chin’s profile. A qualified chin enhancement surgeon, such as Newport Beach facial plastic surgeon Dr. Tenley Lawton, can add appropriate shape or definition, depending upon the individual’s facial structure. Chin enhancement surgery is performed with an implant and reduction surgery involves careful removal of bone. Chin enhancement surgeon Dr. Lawton sometimes recommends nose surgery in concert with chin enhancement surgery to achieve balance in terms of facial proportion because the change from a chin augmentation may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. The goal of any chin enhancement surgery performed by Dr. Lawton is to create the most natural profile, which includes harmonious balance of facial features.
