Dodream Mentoplasty

Dodream mentoplasty improves the long protruding chin with normal occlusion, or the case that the chin is retracted inside due to stunted jawbone growth. The length of the chin is reduced or moved front/back through professional surgical method to improve the overall facial shape proportion and for outstanding look from the front!

Mentoplasty Method per Type

CASE1. Short chin

Prosthetic Insertion

Small incision is made inside the mouth to insert the prosthesis into the precise location, and the surgery is completed within 30 minutes through fixed sleeping anesthesia for quick recovery, so this surgery is appropriate for those with minor level of short chin.


The lower jawbone retracted is cut to be moved forward. The tip of the lower jawbone is cut horizontally to be moved forward to the appropriate location, and surgery is possible even in severe level of short chin. There is no feeling of irritation, and asymmetry can be corrected for natural result.

CASE2. Long-curved chin, wide and blunt chin

Chin length reduction

Chin width reduction


This method reduces the vertical length and width of the tip of the lower jawbone through customized resection, so the tip of the lower jawbone is not cut artificially, but the natural line of the tip is used.

CASE3. Minor mandibular prognathism, long facial type

Witch Osteotomy

Dodream Witch Osteotomy is a surgery specialized for reducing the lower jawbone length, and resection is made in W-line while avoiding the nerves, so clear before & after effect can be expected on the chin length.

Short surgical time of less than 1 hour to be discharged on the day of the operation Long recovery period required from orthognathic surgery or V-line surgery is unnecessary to minimize the patient’s burden.
