Chin Implant Too Small

I did get a chin implant back in April 6, 2011. Now after some months I’m really not satisfied with the result. I have a really weak chin, and asked my surgeon if I could compensate this so that my face would look more complete. Now it feels like he did enlarge my chin, but not enough. I did this home in Norway. I think my surgeon used a Porex implant, size small/ almost medium he told me. Can someone please tell me their opinion and maybe provide me whit some advices on what to do.

Too small


After viewing your picuture, I would also have done liposuction under your chin. This would have enhanced the jawline and chin. Have your surgeon place a larger Porex implant and do some liposuction at the same time. You will love it.

Size of Chin Implant


After looking at your picture, almost everyone would agree that chin projetion should be increased. Consult with your surgeon, or get a second opinion.

Chin Implant Too Small


Yes it does appear to be a too small chin implant. Best to seek second opinions in person from PSs in Norway.

Chin Implants: Planning and Placement


From the photo you posted, it does appear smaller than what I would usually recommend.  A good start would be to re-visit your doctor and see about a revision.  If you feel that your surgeon isn't listening to you or understanding what you want, it might be better to seek a revision elsewhere.

Chin implant


I would have to agree that the implant is too small as you don't have anywhere near the anterior projection you need. Discuss a revision with your surgeon.
