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 ›

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

Hello! I've always hated my profile. Pictures or videos of me from the side are cringe worthy to me. I'm getting an intra oral chin implant with a lil lipo in two weeks! Very excited and very nervous! I will post updates. I trust my surgeon and have a pre op appt in a few days. I expect to... READ MORE

I've been reading this site since Nov. 2013. This is something I've wanted done for about 12 years or so. I have a receding chin, practically non-existent. Since I had a wife, I stopped worrying about it but after she left, I decided this is something I wanted to do for me. This site is a... READ MORE

So I have always had a weak chin and a round face. But now, at 35, I feel like I was seeing the beginning of jowls. And no matter how much weight I lost, the little roll of fat under my little chin would never go away! So I made an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Shah. He made me feel... READ MORE

Extremely happy with the results. Suffered from a protruding mouth. Had profile surgery, which included a chin implant, midface implant, and two on opposite sides of my nose. I am now 10 days postop and still have swelling. The only bad part was some tingling and waiting for my stitches to heal.... READ MORE

Well I've finally had the procedure that I've been wanting for years. It's only the day after and I'm not too sure about the results yet so I'm trying to reserve judgement for the moment. I was not expecting perfection by any stretch, I was just wanting to to get rid of the feeling of... READ MORE

I'm not sure if I can call this a review just yet. I'm writing this mostly so that I can share my experience with plastic surgery in general (so far). This entry is quite long but if you read it I believe you will get some real well-rounded insight into what it’s like to get surgery on your f... READ MORE

Ok so first things first my plastic surgeon is good! I had a rhinoplasty from him which I love but I think we have both bitten off a little more than we can chew in terms of providing me an enhanced chin/jaw. I told him I wanted a more projected chin with wider jaw and none of the implants... READ MORE

I'm giving comment to you because I was with many questions. Dr.Jhonny Salomon recently made ??me a chin implant . I was afraid , for the size of the chin , for recovery. Now I feel super happy , my surgery two weeks ago. I never had pain nor side effect of anesthesia , I had inflammation and... READ MORE

Background: I am a 40-year-old woman with a somewhat weak chin. When I close my mouth, there is significant dimpling which looks harsh, unnatural and gives the impression I'm displeased. My side profile looks convex, not unlike a puffer fish. Botox and fillers were some options offered to me by... READ MORE

I was seeking a small augmentation from my Surgeon and I ended up with an huge implant which was crooked and the arm of the implant was pushing out my cheek. I couldn't move the muscles in my chin properly and it was twisting my lower lip out of shape. The implant was in for about 12 days... READ MORE

Community, I figure I would make a post because other people's entries have really helped me out. I'm a 27 year old Asian male who has always had this receding chin. I think I am decent looking, but my jaw has always really embarrassed me in photos. It isn't something I'm conscious about... READ MORE

7.5 days ago I had a chin implant that had previously been place too high removed. The doctor doctor had to take it out orally the way it had been originally placed. He put a new size small silicon implant in by making another incision under my chin. Two days after surgery he took of a... READ MORE

Hey I'm 20 always had weak chin and i finally decided to go on with chin implant! I think the Sargent said large silicon implant..after reading all these reviews of people not being able to talk and deforming their faces I'm kinda scared and want to cancel. I am not letting anyone know about... READ MORE

I had a neck lift with a chin implant done approximately 2 1/2 months ago. I am very pleased with the way my neck turned out. I am not so pleased with the chin implant. I feel it is too big and bulky, my face doesn't look as feminine as it did before the procedure. I plan on having the chin... READ MORE
