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 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...

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 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

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

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

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.

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

45 Year Old, X-Large Chin Implant with Wings

I always knew the bottom portion of my face was small, but I didn't realize it was due to a weak chin until it was mentioned and then I began researching weak chins, so I decided on a chin implant, hoping it would give my face a better proportion. October 27, 2016 was my surgery date. On day one... READ MORE

20 Year Old with a Recessed Chin

So I have always had a recessed chin. I was in braces for two years and was scheduled to have jaw surgery to fix the issue. After consultations with different surgeons, they decided the surgery wasn't needed and therefore wouldn't be covered by insurance. I found it was cheaper to just go... READ MORE

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
