Chin Implant Surgery Compensation Claims
Mentoplasty Negligence in the UK
A chin implant operation, chin augmentation or mentoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to reshape or enhance the size of a patient’s chin. Done either by inserting a chin implant or by moving or reshaping facial bones, cosmetic chin surgery is popular with patients who feel that their chin is not shaped in the way they would like related to the rest of the face.
The chin implant surgery changes the underlying structure of the face in an attempt to provide better balance to the patient’s facial features. The chin augmentation operation is often performed at the same time as a nose job or rhinoplasty to try and balance the facial proportions.

Chin Augmentation or Mentoplasty Procedures
Chin implants have become popular among men and women in the UK with a 50 percent increase in chin augmentations since 2010. Patients undergoing chin implant surgery take on the operation because they have a weak or receding chin that makes them feel overly self-conscious. They hope that a chin implant will balance their facial features and produce a significant change in their facial profile. Chin reduction surgery is also a similar option for patients who would prefer their jaws to be less prominent in their facial profile.
Alongside the increase in chin implants has come an accompanying rise in chin augmentation compensation claims for negligent chin implant surgical operations.

The Chin Implant Surgical Procedure
Normally a chin implant procedure takes up to an hour and the patient is put under general anaesthetic for the duration of the operation.
The chin implants used in a mentoplasty are normally made of silicone or Gore-Tex and are normally custom-fitted to the configuration of the patient’s face.
The cosmetic surgeon makes an incision underneath the chin or inside the patient’s mouth where their gum and lower lip meet. By gently stretching this tissue, the cosmetic surgeon creates a pocket front of the chin bone and under the muscles where a chin implant can be inserted and positioned in front of the jawbone. The implant is usually attached to the bone with sutures or screws. Once this is done, sutures are used to close the incision

When your Chin Implant Surgery Has Gone Wrong
Following the chin augmentation, the patient will have some swelling and experience some tenderness. A liquid and soft food diet may be required to limit chewing for a few days after the chin implants are inserted. The swelling will normally go down after a few weeks.
However, if your chin implant surgery hasn’t produced the results you were expecting, then you may have been subject to cosmetic surgery negligence on the part of your plastic surgeon or clinic. Indications that a negligent chin augmentation procedure has occurred can include:
- Displacement of the chin implant after cosmetic surgery
- Asymmetry of the face after the chin augmentation
- Nerve damage
- Loss of sensation
- Loss of muscle control
- Inappropriate scarring
If any of these indications of chin implant negligence have happened to you, you may be able to make a claim for financial compensation. Speak to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back to start your chin implant negligence claim.
