Chin Implant Removal After 13 Yrs - Birmingham, AL

After 3 implants from two different dr and 13yrs...

After 3 implants from two different dr and 13yrs of crooked chin, implant, I'm having a complete removal. I haven't been able to find any before and after photos on the internet so I thought I would share.

My first implant was at 28- button implant that was crooked immediately. Same dr tried to fix it but it was always crooked. At 31, had new dr take crooked implant out and put in the implant with wings. It's always been crooked but wasn't as obvious because my face was fuller. Now at 41, my face is this and I'm trusting my dr advise and taking it out for a more natural look.
Surgery is scheduled for Monday July 7th, 2014
I think your face is fine, I wold not take it out. There's fillers they use now in days to put on your nose and chin as well I saw a video on YouTube, maybe you can add some filler so you can achieve the look your going for but really think about it. Good luck.

It looks great! I'm anxious to hear how the process was. I am really, really considering taking mine out now, but my chin is much more recessed so am still afraid. Hope your healing goes smoothly. Keep us posted!

I really don't think you have a weak chin at all. Better leaving all foreign objects out of the body if at all possible.
