A chin implant is one of two ways the chin may be reshaped through surgery. The other, called sliding genioplasty, uses your own bone to augment the chin and therefore doesn't involve inserting a synthetic implant under the skin. Chin augmentations are often done at the same time as a nose job to have the most impact on your profile. LEARN MORE ›

I'm writing this to keep a diary of sorts on the procedures I plan to have - so far I have only had 1 surgery done on me and it was a Silhouette Face Lift which I do not recommend. However the consultation made me realize I had a weak chin and after reading extensively on others' reviews I am... READ MORE

My original motivation for getting plastic surgery was to reshape my nose, but in the process of vetting doctors, I learned that my chin was also very recessed and would supposedly benefit greatly from a chin implant. After picking a nose revisionist doctor and undergoing surgery, I learned he... READ MORE

Exactly 1 week till my procedure, I don't think it has really set in yet. I am trying to be really positive and continue to look at other people's stories on real-self to feel more prepared. I noticed my chin or lack of around 14 or 15 when peers compared me to a teacher who literally had no... READ MORE

I remember the first time I realized that I disliked my profile; I was in middle school slicking back my pony tail using another mirror to see the back and sides. I was devastated. How pretty I had felt on the inside didn't match on the outside. I always hated candid shots of myself - double... READ MORE

2/23- Hello all! I've been so self-conscious about my profile, so I didn't think I wanted to share my pictures and experience, BUT I found so many of the reviews on this site so helpful.... so here I am returning the favor. Hopefully, my experience will help some of you who have been wanting... READ MORE

I am a 30 year old marketing professional that has hated my profile for many years. My nose has a bulbous tip and a large bridge that I would like to refine. My chin is where the major problem lies - family genes have left me with what I call my "slope chin" and quite frankly it is just going to... READ MORE

I've been self conscious for years with my weak chin; pushing it out during photos and obsessing in the mirror. Getting plastic surgery was a last resort for me. I tried mindfulness and I tried unsuccessfully to accept this aspect of my appearance. It was something that I thought about daily... READ MORE

I've wanted to do this for some time I hated my frog olé made me very insecure my face looked chubby and had chipmunk cheeks also looked like I had a big overbite. Finally decided to do it and had to go back to get it revised. The implant was too big didn't fit my small face it bothered me it ... READ MORE

I used to have slightly set back chin but a full gorgeous laugh before the chin implant. I used to get compliments on my teeth and my broad smile. I am a positive person and enjoyed laughing. After surgery the profile of my face is better ... As long as I don't talk or laugh. The bottom half of... READ MORE

L just had surgery today to add a chin implant, remove my buccle fat and submental liposuction. The doctor I chose is in Miami, Florida and I am so happy I selected him for my procedure. Dr. Bared was attentive, took his time, explained the procedures and set forth realistic expectations in... READ MORE

Don't know if I like the final result yet. Posted are the the 1 month post op on the left and the before surgery in the right Dr Fuentes has been very caring and still continues to answer my questions through email. I was a little upset that he placed a large Hanson anatomical implant in... READ MORE

Went to Dr. Kenneth Hughes in Beverly Hills. Not many guys reveal that they've gotten chin implants but I want to let people know that it's changed my life. Nearly 10 years of contemplation and I finally got it done. The staff is great and my recovery was so quick that I was at work within 3... READ MORE

So, over the past year I've gotten well over $40k in plastic surgery from my go-to surgeon here in St. Pete, but he does't do jaw implants (as most plastic surgeons don't, finding out after endless days of research), whom I'll write a review on eventually, and all I have been very happy with....

Where do I start... Well, for some time now, people have made comments on my weak chin. Even in photos I was forced to delete, because the lack of chin. A year ago I had thought about sliding genioplasty, because I had seen some overdone chin implants that had looked masculine or lengthen the... READ MORE

Having procedures done with locals. Will post pictures soon. Here are some current pics. The chin is off... READ MORE

Since 2014 I've wanted to get an implant as I have a retracted chin. I was more aware of my chin "issue" when I was 20, but a surgery never crossed my mind. I finally came across this site and read amazing reviews with awesome before and afters and then decided I wanted to have an implant (the... READ MORE

My journey began with a desire to correct my deviated septum...which expanded into a chin augmentation (You will understand why when you see the my before and after photos). I figured if I was going to take time off work I may as well go all in. Go big or go home. Right?! My hunt for a... READ MORE

This is a bit of a long review because I'm squeezing 16 days of recovery info into one review rather than a few. Sorry so long! Had a chin implant done a couple of weeks ago on May 5th. It's been 16 days now and I'm finally starting to like the results but I have to say if I knew how painful... READ MORE
