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 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

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

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

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. But the last one advised on neck lift with chin implant. He says I'm too young for face lift. My main concern is recovery time n advise on... READ MORE

Where do I start... Well I got my chin augmentation and buccal fat removed by Dr. Elam. I've been looking to encance my chin for so time now and after doing my research for a year, I narrowed it down to the top 4 rated Drs. In Newport Beach. After going into couple of consultations with... READ MORE

I'm going to have a silicone implant in about a week. I just want better balance to my profile. I have a strong nose, but I don't mind it. I'd rather just bring my chin forward so it create a stronger, more masculine profile. I'm not sure of the brand of implant my surgeon uses. He showed me... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I just got my rhinoplasty and chin implant done this past Thursday. I was very busy with finals up until the day before surgery so I really didn't have much time to stress about the surgery. I was pretty glad about this because this is something I would probably be freaking out... 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

Dr. Elam transformed me from a boy to a man! I went to Dr. Elam because I had a receding chin that always made me self-conscious. I never took any pictures from my side because I felt I had a double chin and that it was a weak feature on my face. I requested a consultation on RealSelf and got a... READ MORE

When I was a child of 7 years I broke my nose. I didn't get any treatment until I reached the age of 23. I couldn't breath through my nose, and got it corrected in a clinic. Twelve years later again I couldn't breath anymore through my nose. Then I met Dr. Prof. Sailer. He was the blessing of... READ MORE

I have always hated my profile. I never, ever wear my hair up or back. I decided that a chin implant w/ some neck and chin lipo might be the way to go. I'm not overweight, I just have the luck of having a weak profile. I met with Dr. Anil Shah at the beginning of March 2016. I had... 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 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

I just recently had a chin implant and it was smooth sailing all through the surgery. This is my first experience with plastic surgery. Dr.J and his staff as well as Karen are amazing. I had some odd swelling as I developed a hematoma but Dr.J has taken care of me so well. I truly trust him in... READ MORE

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

This weekend I will have a Chin augmentation and again i started to feel the nerves prior to surgery.
