I have had two surgeries performed by Dr. Young in the last year. The first was a jaw implant surgery and the results were wonderful. It was a complicated procedure with a higher risk of infection due the incisions being make through the inside of the mouth. Though painful, it was a total... READ MORE

I had to find the best possible advice on a subcutaneous nodule excision and when I stumbled upon reviews of Dr. Rock on Real Self that were all positive I decided to go in for a consultation with him. He clearly understood my desire to get rid of a floating nodule under my chin that made it... READ MORE

After years of debating, I am not getting jaw surgery for my underbite, but rather chin reduction. My.ortho wanted me to do the big jaw surgery, but I dont have any complications from my underbite, I just hate my chin. So going to do the chin reduction and then braces to fix the bite as best...

I had a chin implant 9 years ago, and, while that improved my profile, I feel that it did not provide me with enough chin projection or jaw definition, and (obviously) did not help with my mentalis strain, lip incompetence, or mouth-breathing; Therefore I am looking into orthognathic surgery,...

I had always loved my chin. The square shape, the way it projected forward slightly like Jolie and Palermo, but I always felt it was a bit too wide. The fact that I liked it so much prevented me from seeking to reduce the size in case I lost what I liked. When went to see a plastic surgeon... READ MORE

Hi I want to have my lower jaw broken as I feel my chin sticks out due to larger lower jaw and I previously had braces for class 3 bite which was taken off 2012. I thought the braces would fix my jaw too but unfortunately it still remains much larger than my top. I hope to get surgery for my... READ MORE

I originally came across Dr. Buonassisi while researching possible surgical and non-surgical alternatives for what is generally referred to as “double chin”. I am a very healthy and active male in my late 20’s, but had noticed an increased amount of fullness in my lower chin area generally... READ MORE

I had a face lift, chin implant, and lip lift. The implant felt a little strange. I had a great profile,, but everyone thought I looked weird. Then my lip started to droop and I looked like I had a stroke. My lips looked strange when I ate or spoke. I had it taken out yesterday and now I... READ MORE

After getting adult braces when I was 28, I started to research orthognathic surgery, as I have always been unhappy with my profile. My orthodontist told me that my upper and lower jaw were in the correct position, but I could consider a genioplasty, and recommended a maxillo-facial surgeon.... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I'm a 34 year old female who is booked in for sliding genioplasty on the 18th of July (3 days). As I have only told the 2 people who will be caring for me pre and post op, I wanted to chat to others out there who have had this or similar operations as I'm a little anxious! I'm... READ MORE

About three years ago I decided to take the plunge and get a little work done. My chin was always a little square for my liking and I wanted it to look more "feminine." (Never mind that in retrospect it looked fine as it was....). Anyway, I convinced my rather reluctant PS to give me some chin... READ MORE

I am almost six weeks post op from having a chin reduction and rhinoplasty ( including septoplasty and turbinectomy) with Dr Warwick Nettle. I just want to say that rhinoplasty for me was way more intrusive then I anticipated... And the chin reduction was actually pretty painful and I have a... READ MORE

I had a chin that jutted out of my face like a witch's chin. I've always been extremely self conscious about it. However, I never did it until now because of the horror stories I have read. It's over a day later and. Have full feeling in my chin and lip and not any bruising. He... READ MORE

My experience (7 weeks post op) has been, thus far very mixed. I had a chin implant inserted in 2000 for a short jaw and receding chin but remained unhappy with my profile, however face-on I was happy with my face. Last Summer a saw a specialist Maxillo-facial and oral surgeon who recommended a... READ MORE

Dr. Pryor removed a sebaceous cyst on my neck. He listened well, remembered all my concerns and responded thoroughly. The incision was precise so there was no bleeding after stitched up. Healed quickly with very faint scar after 10 days, which will disappear with more time. I'll refer my... READ MORE

I chose "chin surgery" from the list: I had both liposuction on my neck and a chin implant. I had a small chin and fat on my neck that gave the appearance of a double chin, which I didn't like. I'm not overweight but the fat deposit on my neck made me look heavier. Also my face... READ MORE

In July of 2009 I had reconstructive jaw surgery to correct my open bite. I was unable to close my mouth comfortably, grinded my teeth badly, snored badly, and had an overall unappealing look to my face due to my weak chin. I do not know the number of millimeters in regards to the repositioning... READ MORE

Hello, I've had both a chin augmentation & neck lipo procedure performed about 7 weeks ago. And i just felt the need to write this for all those that are worried about nerve damage to help put their mind at ease. By my 3rd week I had trouble speaking, numbness, soreness & was... READ MORE

I had a large chin, specifically chin pad (fleshy bit on chin tip) which dimpled and extended down to produce 'witchies' chin. A family trait I always disliked. In addition I always felt my nose and nostrils were too wide and high across the bridge and that my face was quite 'fleshy' all round... READ MORE

I totally regret my chin reduction. It looks worse than before, with a very elongated looking face, pointy chin. Horrible. I could cry every time I look in the mirror.I trusted my doctor because he had done my "nose-job" two years ago and it turned out to be good. This time I feel like... READ MORE
