Augmentation mentoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure to correct chin retrusion or microgenia which usually requires placement of an alloplastic material over the pogonion, and which results in increased chin projection and a more aesthetically balanced facial profile. Polypropylene mesh is easy to purchase, widely available in a general hospital and most commonly used by general surgeons. In this series of 192 patients, we wanted to demonstrate our simple mentoplasty technique using prolene mesh that can easily be combined with a rhinoplasty procedure, with possible causes of infection and the rationale for using prolene mesh in such procedures.
