Chin Surgery (Mentoplasty)

Mentoplasty

Chin Surgery

The main objective of chin surgery is to bring harmony to the face.

Augmentation mentoplasty seeks to compensate the chin deficit that is generated in the profile when the chin is very small or when the chin is markedly behind the line that passes through the glabella and the nasal spine.
Chin reshaping is used to feminize or polish a face with an enhanced chin.
These operations can range from simple to very complex.

- Hematic Biometry
- Blood Chemistry
- Prothrombin time
- Partial Thromboplastin Time
Cardiological Evaluation
For the safety of our patients, it is very important to be sure that before having surgery they are in optimal health condition, that is why a cardio-logical evaluation is essential. Preferably, it is requested that this assessment is perform in our city.

We have a list of specialist partners who support us with the assessments for our patients.
COVID Protocol
The epidemiological situation that we are currently experiencing made us adapt to our new reality, that is why we adapted for you a security protocol for COVID.
This protocol is to maximize the certainty that our patients are in the best health condition for your surgery.
The tests performed are:
- PCR, for its acronym in English for 'Polymerase Chain Reaction', is a diagnostic test that allows detecting a fragment of the genetic material of a pathogen, it is being used to determine whether or not a person is infected with COVID. It must be done no more than 5 days before surgery.
- Antibody test, unlike PCR, these tests do not identify the RNA of the virus, but rather detect antibodies produced against the virus using a blood sample, which is another way of knowing if the patients have an infected status.
Pre surgical Evaluation
Before the surgery, the pre-surgical evaluation with Dr. Lázaro Cárde-nas Camarena is very important, in this con-sultation the last doubts are solved and details of the surgery are refined, the consents paperwork is delivered, pre-surgical indications, post-care surgical procedures, prescrip-tion of medications and photographs control.

DURING SURGERY

Chin Implant
Sedation, the goals that are pursued when using sedation are: to reduce the anxiety of the patient, to reduce the pain produced by the injection of the local anesthetic, to increase the tolerance of the patient in long-term procedures.
Local anesthesia, is used to have loss or temporary absence of sensitivity in a limited area of the body.
Chin contouring
General Anesthesia.
Drugs render a patient unresponsive and unconscious. They are normally administered intravenously (IV) or inhaled. Under general anesthesia, the patient is unable to feel pain and may also have amnesia.
The surgical time od a Mentoplasty (Implant or contouring) is approximately between 1 to 2 hours, it all depends on the case of the patient.
Important; The estimated time provided in this information is only about the surgical procedure, the preparation and recovery time must be considered
