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 ›

I’ve read through a bunch of experiences and it helped me get more informed about a chin implant procedure. It was super helpful so here are some details on my experience with a chin implant procedure and recovery. My chin is on the smallish side, and I’ve always been a bit self-conscience... READ MORE

So, where to start? I've always had a weak chin, not necessarily receeding, but weak. I am a male and have very strong defined facial features so my chin just looked disproportionate in comparison. I decided to have a chin implant done 2 months ago via sub mental approach. The procedure went... READ MORE

I originally had no intentions of posting my own procedure but was asked by another user to submit and since I found Real Self so helpful in my decision, I am going to post my experience and results. I have always been somewhat introverted about my profile; aside from having my father's nose, I... READ MORE

I get this done tomorrow morning. Excited and nervous, I dont know If I will hate it or love it. The more I think of it the more I think Im crazy for doing this. But here goes. Ive always been self conscious of my chin which has led me to always have a full beard and shape my chin with my hair.... READ MORE

I have always disliked how my chin melts right into my neck. Originally I went to my ps for alittle botox and casually inquired about my chin. Surgeon said, sure we can put a small or med implant in with alittle lipo to define chin area. Boom!!! . quote given.. i was so anxious and quickly put... READ MORE

I'm excited but nervous as we all are before any procedure. I first visited a Cosmetic Surgeon about a chin implant back when I was in my 20's. I seriously considered it at that time, but then the kids came along and my chin didn't seem to be that important. Three years ago, and six kids... READ MORE

The implant definitely helped my profile. However, it looks somewhat crooked. On the right side I feel a something firm underneath my chin and I'm not sure if the implant is positioned incorrectly or this is excess scar tissue. It feels like it is higher on the left side. I cannot get into him... READ MORE

I've wanted a chin implant for over 10 years now, and I finally decided to go through with it. I'm only 5 days post op right now, but I'm concerned it might be too small. I don't feel like I have any more swelling, so I'm hoping it doesn't get any smaller. I told my doctor I wanted a small,... READ MORE

I am hesitant about posting this on the internet for the world to see but I feel an obligation since this site has helped me so much. I decided on my plastic surgeon from this site as well. I have always had a weak chin, and it didn't really bother me until I started to get some fat under the... READ MORE

Love this site. I'm interested in chin augmentation and rhinoplasty. What do you think? Would I be a good candidate? Just concerned I might be making the wrong decision. All opinions are welcome. I have been thinking about this for years and I plan on proceeding around august. Thanks for your help.. READ MORE

Hated my chin for 25 years. Obsessed over every day - that's 9,125 days of thinking about my chin. Before I got it done, I came on here and asked the professionals if they thought I needed it - every single one said, "yes." My doctor was/is amazing! I am still healing, but it's getting better...

Hi everyone.. I have wanted a chin implant for many years now. I went to a consultation recently and the doctor told me I could use a large implant-however I'd feel more comfortable w a medium. (don't want it too big/noticeable) does anyone have any suggestions who has had the surgery or even... READ MORE

I had a chin implant and sub-mental liposuction done 2 days ago (FEB 18TH 2014) after lurking these pages for a couple years trying to decide whether I should go through with it. So far - I think I'm going to be very pleased with the end result, and I am very happy with the doctor I choose to do... READ MORE

Dr. Philip Young broke a bone in my jaw by screwing in jaw implants and breaking the jaw bone. This bone sat floating around under my skin for 7 months. I could not work, I could not leave my home as the blood needed to be drained every 3 hours. Then, after attempts to find the cause of the... READ MORE

So this is my story. I wasn't the best looking kid. But after puberty, I turned out to be a decent looking guy. Always hearing from people that I have change so much since I was a kid. A nice backhanded compliment really :). Though, my insecurities from childhood has shaped my life in some form.... READ MORE

I have my surgery scheduled for this week. I've always felt self-conscious about my weak chin, especially after seeing pictures of my profile. I guess I'm hoping to match what I picture myself to look like, seeing myself face-on in the mirror. Anyway, I am feeling anxious about my surgery this... READ MORE

Hi! I am seriously considering having a chin implant and have done everything but officially schedule the date. However, I am still apprehensive. I would only want a small implant because I prefer to keep my chin on the smaller side. Based on the experience of those who have had an implant,... READ MORE

Good candidate for chin implant? Not sure large? medium? Self conscious about having chubby cheeks when I'm a relatively very thin guy..I think it's because my chin is weak.. i dont' THink I need lipo. I'm too chicken to go under general anesthesia. I've read a lot of stuff here and made me... READ MORE

I had a recessed chin and wanted this surgery for years. It was done using local anesthesia and everything went great! I don't know the size or type of implant, but the Dr. knew exactly what I needed. This process was done through a small incision below my chin. I have some bruising and... READ MORE

I had a chin implant on 4/16/13 along with liposuction along the jaw/chine line. Although I do trust that my surgeon is technically competent, there was NO discussion of the type (as opposed to size) of implant available. In retrospect, I wish I taken it upon myself to do my homework on the... READ MORE
