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 performed at the same time as rhinoplasty to have the most impact on your profile. LEARN MORE ›

I've previously had a shelf implant placed in my chin and it's still there. I feel like the chin implant really helped my profile but it made my face look longer and it didn't address the jawline area. I later had Radiesse injected in the jawline area but did not receive the desired effect. ... READ MORE

I recently had my Pre Op appointment! Fourteen more days until surgery! I've been waiting for this moment for years and I'm now finally taking the leap! I'm very nervous and excited about the whole thing and would like to share my pre op, and recovery experience! I'll keep updating as I will be... READ MORE

Well, today was my pre-opp appointment! Two more weeks to a new chin! I've been wanting to do this for 10 years, ever since I realized what was "wrong" with my face. Over the past 10 years my want to go through with this procedure came and went. Sometimes I was cool with how my chin was, other... 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

I've always been self-conscious of my weak chin and unbalanced profile. I've hidden behind my hair for years, and micromanage every photo opportunity so that I'm always smiling (makes my chin appear bigger) My younger sister took the plunge two years ago and got hers done and I was so impressed...

In 5 days I am having a chin implant inserted through my mouth, combined with a liposuction. This will be the end of a process that begun with braces at the age of 12. I had a huge overbite (Almost 1cm) that was corrected with Twin Blocks. Still, my chin is very far back. I also have a large... READ 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 chin implant experience so far. 1st Day I took 4 pills of medication half an hour before my procedure instructed by my plastic surgeon. I would say it took about an hour for the liposuction and chin implant to be completed. Multiple shots were injected into my chin area in order to numb it.... READ MORE

I've always been very self conscious about my chin. I noticed I had a weaker profile when my orthodontist pointed it out to me when I was about 13. Ever since then, I wanted to change it. In the spring of 2015 I tried juviderm fillers to try and enhance my profile, but I found it wasn't enough.... READ MORE

Heya! I always knew something was 'off' or 'different' about my face but I couldn't put my finger on it until I became a teenager. It was my chin or.. lack thereof. Waves of insecurity would come + go as a teen/early 20's but for past couple of years, it's all I see when I look in the mirror. I... 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

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

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

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

I always hated my profile and thought my nose was a little on the large side. Little did I realize that it was only my chin that was not balanced w/my other features. Everything now looks proportionate, I feel beautiful. I even love my nose now! Doc is amazing- his recommendation right on! The BEST! READ MORE

On Monday 7/11 I had a chin implant done. The procedure took minimal time. I came in at 7:30 and was done by 9. It was done under local anesthesia. The nurse injected me about 10 times around the chin area. Once numb, the doctor went to work. The scraping of the bone to create a pocket was... READ MORE

Hi guys, Thanks to everyone writing reviews on this website. It has been so helpful!Here is my story: I've always hated my double chin. Not sure where it comes from, both my parents don't have it and I'm super fit (165cm/50kg).Years ago there was a "trend" of injections done to the chin... 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
