THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CHIN DEFORMITY IN RHINOPLASTY CASES

Özet


Patients requesting for rhinoplasty may have mild to moderate chin deformities. Augmentation mentoplasty with an alloplastic implant is a minor procedure and can be combined with rhinoplasty.
We performed rhinoplasty combined with augmentation mentoplasty in 8 patients who had normal occlusion. Two-piece porous polyethylene implant was used for the chin augmentation.
No major complication was observed. One patient had revisional surgery to change a larger implant. The numbness over the chin resolved in a couple of weeks. The aesthetic results of the combined procedure especially on the lateral view were quite satisfactory. Rhinoplasty combined with augmentation mentoplasty provides a better balanced face. Therefore a detailed preoperative facial analysis should be done for the patient who refers for rhinoplasty.
