Have you always wanted your chin altered? Chin surgery -- called mentoplasty -- is a type of plastic surgery.


This procedure can reshape the chin by adding implants or by altering the bone.


Chin surgery can help balance a person’s face by helping all of the facial features look better together. For this reason, if you are having plastic surgery on your nose, a surgeon might suggest also altering your chin to make sure everything is proportionate.
