I had my first consult with a plastic surgeon when I was 19 years old. I am now 46 and just went for my second consult to address a weak chin. The first doctor told me they would need to break my jaw. I declined. This time Dr. Ceydeli recommended a large chin implant. He seems very nice and I loved his staff. I have read so much here, it answered many of the questions I might have had if it didn't exist. This site was so helpful that I have decided to share this journey with the other readers here. I will be submitting before and after photos.
I went in for my pre operative consult. They...

They told me I would be swollen and bruised. Recovery time depends on the individual. They told me the rule of thumb is - however long it takes for a bruise to disappear on me is how long the my recovery period is likely to be. They also told me I would have skin tightening around my chin area that might be uncomfortable. I want that skin tighter so hopefully I won't whine too much about it being uncomfortable. LOL
They will be using a large silicone implant placed through a small incision on the inside of my mouth.
If I have not mentioned it before I am nervous, so my plan thus far has been to pretend that I am not having surgery. I am however going to have surgery and I plan on showing you a picture the first day, if I am not too loopy from the meds. to figure out how to upload them on here. Wish me luck! Next update scheduled for 4/2/2013.
I'm going to write more of an update when I am not...

I am relieved that my nerves don't seem to be effected, I can still smile though the swelling makes it difficult. The feeling has returned around my bottom lip, under my chin, but my actually chin is still completely numb.The swelling has gone down enough that my face is feeling normal again. (though it still looks pretty bad)
I'll be completely honest the first night was very painful. I was up every two hours putting hot and cold compresses on my face. Last night was uncomfortable but I only woke up when the pain medication wore off. Today I am just taking Alieve for the pain and it seems to be working. If I need a pain pill I will take one but they upset my stomach. I am on a soft food diet for seven to ten days and have my post op visit on Tuesday.
I added week one - post op photos, it was amazing...

I am thrilled with the results of my chin augmentation. If you click on my name you can see the before and after pictures that I took. Dr Ceydeli does beautiful work. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering surgery.
