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 ›

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 paid for consults with 3 separate doctors because I care very much about my face and wanted to choose the absolute best doctor for my procedure. Dr. Rahban "won" my surgery – hands down. Of all the doctors, he spent the most time with me, had the best bedside manner, and the best aesthetic.... 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

I was planning for my rhinoplasty for long as I always hated my short Nose. I planned the surgery here in Delhi(India) after consulting 4-5doctors in different cities. 11th was my Pre surgery consultation and the doctor convinced me for chin implant (using medpor without screw) also as I had a...

I had a medium/large chin implant + neck lipsuction on April 5th, 2013. The surgeon used a large implant and shaved it down to be somewhere in between medium and large. I am writing this review 1.5 weeks post-op. Overall, I am absolutely thrilled with my results. I feel confident, beautiful, and... READ MORE

I originally went in to discuss a nose job because I felt it protruded too much. Dr. Martin instantly said I did not need that and suggested I needed a more prominent chin too balance out my nose. I hadn't thought about that before but it made perfect sense. He liposuctioned my neck and... READ MORE

Hi everyone I just had a medium chin implant put in i had no chin at all it was very small and i hated my profile. I also had a rhinoplasty done because i had a little hump on my nose. I am now experiencing numbness in my chin and left side of my lip, my face feels tight, and looks box like to... READ MORE

I always had a lousy profile which was primarily the result of a weak chin. I had toyed with the idea of doing something about it, but finally decided once I found out that my wife of 14 years didn't love me anymore and we needed to get a divorce. I am one of those guys who needs to "do... READ MORE
