Correction of the ptotic chin.

Hugh Devlin, Richard E. Lloyd

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Where there is extensive stripping of the mentalis muscle from the mandible during vestibuloplasty procedures the chin tissues often become lax and droop, giving an unsightly ptotic defect. If this soft-tissue defect is combined with excessive chin tissue an excisional surgical procedure is required. This article describes a surgical procedure to produce an acceptable chin profile.
