Özet

Background: Augmentation mentoplasty is a common procedure, applied especially in conjunction with rhinoplasty. Although various materials have been used for this procedure, diced high-density porous polyethylene (Medpor) has not been used so far. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of diced high-density porous polyethylene in chin augmentation.
