A chin implant is one of two ways the chin may be reshaped through surgery. The other, called sliding genioplasty, uses your own bone to augment the chin and therefore doesn't involve inserting a synthetic implant under the skin. Chin augmentations are often done at the same time as a nose job to have the most impact on your profile. LEARN MORE ›

My original motivation for getting plastic surgery was to reshape my nose, but in the process of vetting doctors, I learned that my chin was also very recessed and would supposedly benefit greatly from a chin implant. After picking a nose revisionist doctor and undergoing surgery, I learned he... READ MORE

I've hated my profile since I was a teenager. Always felt I was very pretty from the front but felt I had to hide my ugly profile with long hair and always holding my jaw forward. I was a thumb sucker until I was 3 and I think this is what caused my maxilla to grow more downward, and my mandible... READ MORE

I want my nose look sharper than round. As it makes my nose look big when I smile. Besides, I'm having braces right now. I think I will have a chin implant after they off. I was wondering the chin implant will affect my braces ? As I've worried that after doing chin implant I need to redo my... READ MORE

While in Costa Rica having some dental work done, I decided to have a chin implant placed. I've wanted one for some time and am considering it my first foray into cosmetic surgery...kind of a baby step. I considered several surgeons and after communicating with them opted for Dr. Pino. A number... READ MORE

Hey everyone, I am getting closer and closer to my surgery date and figured I could help someone out on here. I found an amazing Doctor Doctor Sherrell Aston out of NY,NY.

Hi everyone! I have wanted a chin implant for quite some time now - been playing with the idea for a few years after seeing a picture of myself from the side on facebook. My chin is not very badly weak/recessed but it is enough that I have a (to me) very unappealing profile. I am also happy for... READ MORE

Dr. Shaw is the second plastic surgeon I consulted for a chin implant and lipo. I am 5'5" and 120 with a very small recessed chin. Even though I'm petite built, I always have a double chin and hate my side profile! !! I'm so self conscience! ! Wow, I wish I would have seen him first! ... READ MORE

I had a flat chin that did not extend in proportion to my face. I also had volume loss in my cheeks. Chin implant and cervicoplasty along with Voluma in my cheeks was my best bet. The swelling after surgery lasted about 2 weeks. At first, my smile was hideous as I had no control of my lips. I am... READ MORE

I've always had a recessed chin/small lower mandible. It impacted my self-esteem negatively for years. I didn't quite understand what it was about MY neck/jaw/profile that was "off"... I brought up my concern to Dr. Mustoe. He instantly responded with a clear plan to help me address my concern... READ MORE

Dr Ramsey Cochair is wonderful!! I am so glad I chose him. He really listens and was not like the other plastic surgeons I met with in Dallas. Great results. Could not be happier. He was the dr for me! Very easy surgery. I don't understand the other people that do not like their CI on... READ MORE

I've always been photogenic but as I've gotten older I put on weight in unsightly areas such as my chin which caused my face to also appear rounder. The doctor suggested a small (5 mm) implant in addition to neck lipo. I am not sure how I feel about my chin now. I almost think the placement... READ MORE

I am freshly out of surgery and still recovering. Today is the first day I that I am feeling better, still sore but an improvement over yesterday. I had several procedures done at the same time, neck lift and chin implant being the most drastic that I see at this early stage. I am thrilled at... READ MORE

My journey began as I started to lose weight in November 2013. I was looking great however, I was very dissatisfied with my profile view. If I was in my car and you looked at my side view, I looked like an overweight woman because of the deposit of fat under my neck. I had two chins. I looked... READ MORE

The surgery went well . Recovery is bareable. His staff was very professional and kind. Set... READ MORE

I did not find any review related to jaw angle implants, so I thought that writing about my journey could help future patients considering this particular surgery. I always considered my jaw to be underdeveloped. I had braces when I was a kid and the problem was always that my palate and jaw... READ MORE

Dr. Elam transformed me from a boy to a man! I went to Dr. Elam because I had a receding chin that always made me self-conscious. I never took any pictures from my side because I felt I had a double chin and that it was a weak feature on my face. I requested a consultation on RealSelf and got a... READ MORE

I used to have slightly set back chin but a full gorgeous laugh before the chin implant. I used to get compliments on my teeth and my broad smile. I am a positive person and enjoyed laughing. After surgery the profile of my face is better ... As long as I don't talk or laugh. The bottom half of... READ MORE
