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 ›

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

For many years I wasn't happy with how I look due to my small chin and it made my face look round. One day I made up my decision, but it took me a while to decide where to go and choose the right doctor. I'm glad that I was recommended to DR. Nunn by Emilly. I felt welcome and comfortable there.... READ MORE

Where should I even start??!! I've always hated my chin.... For years.... I hated my profile... Always felt like I had a very small chin and a big forehead... Just had a chin implant put in on Monday also had liposuction on chin and neck area.... I really don't know how I feel about my results.... READ MORE

I have hated my profile for as long as I can remember due to my weak recessed chin. As I have aged and got some fat under my chin it looks even worse. Price is in NZD. I had a consultation in January. I felt assured that he would do a nice job. It will be day surgery with a general anaesthetic... 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

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

Had multiple procedures, face lift, fat transfer, neck lift & chin implant last July. chin implant has somehow shifted and needs to be replaced. Going to re-tighten under the neck as well. Having procedures done with locals. Will post pictures soon. Here are some current pics. The chin is off... READ MORE

Did not like my profile & chin was naturally set a little farther back than I liked. Went w/large implant, easy procedure, zero bruising, 3rd day was worst swelling. I looked like a Nutty Professor/Jay Leno combo but after the head wrap came off swelling got much better & I love it @ 1... READ MORE

I have always wanted a little definition on the bottom portion of my face, especially when I smile. I had my consultation with Dr Hamilton in February and scheduled my surgery the day after! I felt so confident in his assessment and work, that I didn't need to consult with other doctors. Along... READ MORE

I am nearly 30 years old and have been excessively conscious of my chin. So much so that I would completely avoid photos. A chin implant is a procedure that I have been wanting to do for a long time and it took me nearly two years of saving up on cash to fulfill the requirements. I reckon... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I have wanted a chin implant for quite some time now - been playing with the idea for a few years after seeing a picture of myself from the side on facebook. My chin is not very badly weak/recessed but it is enough that I have a (to me) very unappealing profile. I am also happy for... READ MORE

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

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

Just so you see my before / after ! That was definitely worth it, even If the change may be not so important for others, it really is for me. I don't have to do that weird face when I smile to pretend I have a chin :-) I still need to go back to revise the surgery in 2 days as the implant is not... 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

Finally right time in my life to have a chin implant , liposuction and mini neck lift . Have hated my profile since primary school and after several consultations with several plastic surgeons and 'thinking' about these options for over 2 years I have decided now is the right time ! I'm going... 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

Friends call me Mari, after a 80 lb weight loss, I have had breast augmentation, TT, and now I am considering a face lift. I haven't decided on doctor yet.
