I am undergoing rhinoplasty in January which I am excited about. I have also been given the option of a chin implant, but I saw on The Doctors TV show a lady getting 2 syringes worth of radanese ($1k each) and it will last a year. I'm considering trying radanese for a year and seeing how it goes and maybe testing a chin implant later... since I'm kinda scared of getting a foreign object placed in the chin. Based on my profile view, any thoughts?
Should I Get a Chin Implant or Get Radanese Chin Injections? (photo)

You are a great candidate for chin augmentation

Radiesse is a great way to do a test run before chin surgery
I really like Radiesse for chin augmentation. The truth is, you can only get about 65-70% of the results that are possilbe with a chin implant, however often, that is enough.
With your chin in particular, you want to be careful to bring the chin forward, not downward. The fillers are actually a little better at controlling the direction of the augmentation.
Another really cool option for you is to have saline injected as a test first, then you can really try out the augmentation before treatment. It lasts about 10 minutes, then the saline is absorbed into your body.
Good luck in your search for information!
