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 ›

Really excited to get a 'chin'. All the reviews and stories on here have helped me so much I thought I would try to share my adventure as well. 53 days until my surgery so patiently waiting. I'm just getting an implant, no liposuction. The ps recommended lipo but then said wasn't necessary when... READ MORE

The women in my family have weak chins which causes the fat and collagen in the cheeks to sag in a way that makes me look 20 years older than my age. In addition my jawline was hardly noticeable. I'm 5'6" and 135lbs so losing weight was unlikely to improve this. My profile is much improved 2... 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

For years I had struggled with having a double chin, despite having lost weight and maintained a healthy diet and exercise program. I have never liked my profile and always worried about how my chin looked in photographs. I spoke with a friend who had a chin implant and liposuction done by Dr.... READ MORE

I was self-conscious about my profile for as long as I can remember. It has only gotten worse as I've gotten older, gained a little weight and suffered the effects of gravity. I finally found a surgeon I liked and trusted and scheduled my procedure for January 15. A week before I started... READ MORE

The chin was recommended due to weak profile. I can appreciate it in certain lighting, and angles. But, I can feel it every day. Very tender even after a year and hurts the most when I sleep on it by accident (roll over in the night). I'm having it removed tomorrow morning. My surgeon thinks... READ MORE

My story and review, I hope this can help people make a great decision about improving the way they look by changing something they don't like about themselves. I am a male 45yrs old. About 2 years ago I had Chin reduction (too long) and off the shelf Jowl implants done from another Dr , this... READ MORE

I had Dr Harrison Lee remove my medpor implant out that Dr zide did 7 years ago and replace it with a better sized silicone implant. The medpor never felt comfortable, . It felt like a piece of wood and didn't look good at all. After a lot of research I went to Dr Lee and I had the surgery. So... READ MORE

I've hated my profile since I was a teenager. Always felt I was very pretty from the front but felt I had to hide my ugly profile with long hair and always holding my jaw forward. I was a thumb sucker until I was 3 and I think this is what caused my maxilla to grow more downward, and my mandible... READ MORE

I want my nose look sharper than round. As it makes my nose look big when I smile. Besides, I'm having braces right now. I think I will have a chin implant after they off. I was wondering the chin implant will affect my braces ? As I've worried that after doing chin implant I need to redo my... READ MORE

While in Costa Rica having some dental work done, I decided to have a chin implant placed. I've wanted one for some time and am considering it my first foray into cosmetic surgery...kind of a baby step. I considered several surgeons and after communicating with them opted for Dr. Pino. A number... READ MORE

Dr. Shaw is the second plastic surgeon I consulted for a chin implant and lipo. I am 5'5" and 120 with a very small recessed chin. Even though I'm petite built, I always have a double chin and hate my side profile! !! I'm so self conscience! ! Wow, I wish I would have seen him first! ... READ MORE

I had a flat chin that did not extend in proportion to my face. I also had volume loss in my cheeks. Chin implant and cervicoplasty along with Voluma in my cheeks was my best bet. The swelling after surgery lasted about 2 weeks. At first, my smile was hideous as I had no control of my lips. I am... READ MORE

Dr Ramsey Cochair is wonderful!! I am so glad I chose him. He really listens and was not like the other plastic surgeons I met with in Dallas. Great results. Could not be happier. He was the dr for me! Very easy surgery. I don't understand the other people that do not like their CI on... READ MORE

I've always been photogenic but as I've gotten older I put on weight in unsightly areas such as my chin which caused my face to also appear rounder. The doctor suggested a small (5 mm) implant in addition to neck lipo. I am not sure how I feel about my chin now. I almost think the placement... READ MORE

I am freshly out of surgery and still recovering. Today is the first day I that I am feeling better, still sore but an improvement over yesterday. I had several procedures done at the same time, neck lift and chin implant being the most drastic that I see at this early stage. I am thrilled at... READ MORE

My journey began as I started to lose weight in November 2013. I was looking great however, I was very dissatisfied with my profile view. If I was in my car and you looked at my side view, I looked like an overweight woman because of the deposit of fat under my neck. I had two chins. I looked... READ MORE

I decided on a chin implant after gng to 5 diff doctors . I was gng to get a lower facelift until dr. David Kim of San Fran told me he wd do nothing more than a chin implant . He is a very honest dr. The surgery went well . Recovery is bareable. His staff was very professional and kind. Set... READ MORE
