Will Mentalis Suspension Improve My Lip Incompetence?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I have lip incompetence and chin ptosis after chin implant removal and soft tissue reduction surgery, all via a submental approach. Can a mentalis muscle resuspension help in my case?
A: Mentalis muscle resuspensions rarely work when done alone. They have a better chance of success when combined with a small implant placed on the chin which encourages soft tissue adhesion like a Medpor or Goretex material.
