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 â€ş

Looking Forward to an Improved Profile with a Chin Implant and Submental Lipo - Westake Village, CA

I've always felt my face was "off" just a bit, especially when I catch a glimpse of my profile or when I look down at my phone and see my chin completely disappear in to my neck, yuck! I'm hoping I can achieve more of a contour in the neck with a chin implant as well as submental liposuction... READ MORE

27 yr old African American Female needed a chin implant and buccal fat removal.

So I had my procedure today. My experience with Dr Shah and his staff was pleasant. His medical assistants were very friendly and helpful, so was Dr. Shah. My appointment was at 10:30 am, once I arrived everything went smoothly I didn't have to wait long at all. I filled out paper work and took... READ MORE

Getting the Chin I Always Wanted!

Hi! So... I hated my chin as long as I can remember. From the age of 13 it really started bothering me and profile pictures where not done! 3 weeks ago I had Coolscuplting to reduce my double chin. But this doesn’t solve the biggest problem, my small chin is. It runs in the family and I do n... READ MORE

Profile 911! Rhinoplasty, Chin Augmentation, Submental Fat Reduction - San Francisco, CA

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).

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.

Chin Implant with Liposuction, 35 Yr Old Female - Raleigh, NC

I can relate to so many people's reviews here on Real Self. The first time I remember realizing that I hated my profile was probably back in middle school when I could see my reflection in a sideways mirror. I vividly remember that moment. From then on, I always tried to raise my chin up to... READ MORE

28 Year Old /F Chin Implant - Orlando, FL

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!

Uneven Chin - Virginia, IL

My surgeon said unevenness is due to swelling. It's been two weeks so yeah maybe. But after much research I really thing he did everything right but my natural chin isn't. My old chin in photo never showed evidence of this. I'll see him in a month and I know I'll have to get this done again. He... READ MORE

Rhinoplasty and Chin Implant

For years I've always wanted the lump in my nose to be removed and the tip to be a little more pointy. Finally I gathered the courage to move forward with my procedure. On my initial consultation my dr suggested a chin implant since I have a slight over bight. I never really thought about my... READ MORE

28 Years Old Male, Seeking Custom Jaw Implants, Custom Chin Implant, Custom Cheek Implants, Buccal Fat Removal

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

28 Yrs, Seeking Chin Implant - London, UK

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

Chin Implant + Neck Lipo + Excellent Dr. = Very Happy Me! - Los Angeles, CA

Hello. I waited to post my review until I stopped wingeing back and forth about my results. It’s a rollercoaster…. but well worth the ride. THE DECISION: I’m 44 now, and I have known since I was a teenager that my profile did not line up with who I was. I came from a family that shunn... READ MORE

I Need a Chin (And a New Nose Too) - Folsom, CA

I inherited an unfortunate mouth/chin situation. I've been through multiple sets of braces, retainers, headgear, etc. My orthodontist as a child wanted my mom to commit me to jaw surgery, but she knew that would have been like moving a mountain so we opted to attempt to fix my overbite with...

Patiently Waited for Results

Hi All! Reading reviews here greatly helped me pre and post op, so I'd like to return the favor! I've always hated my profile but never knew what exactly was "off" about it. When I was younger I thought I had an underbite, then I went through a phase when I thought I had a chubby face (even... READ MORE

Chin Implant, 30th Birthday Present to Me

Sliding Genioplasty / Cheek Implant / Jaw Implants / Buccal Fat Removal

I have had a weak chin and jaw my whole life. My family calls them the lightbulb head as both sides of the family suffer from this. I knew that a simple chin implant wouldn't be enough as the back jaw are also just kind of morphed with my neck. I searched high and low for a jaw specialist and... READ MORE

Wanting This Forever!!! - Fleming Island, FL

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...
