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 โ€บ

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 itโ€™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

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

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

Hello, I am trying to decide if I will go forward with having chin augmentation surgery or not. I have lived with a receded chin my entire life I was first aware of it when I was 15 years old and have thought about changing my appearance ever since. I am contemplating going with a filler...

Bad Chin Implant surgery experience. Chin implant size was too big and was placed unevenly. One side of the implant was sitting about 1/2 inch higher than the other side. The pockets where the implant was placed were not aligned the same along the jaw bone. Had two corrective surgeries to... READ MORE

I've hated my chin for as long as I can remember. Paired with a small 2 mm overbite, it was all I saw when in looked in the mirror. I decided to go to a surgeon that specialized in facial plastic surgery. He recommended a small or medium implant. I was overjoyed that I was finally getting this... READ MORE

I always knew that i would eventually have to have my chin fixed. i was told to get jaw surgery when i had braces as a kid and for various reasons it just never happened. As i got older I had no support in my chin and my face was basically falling forward and i was developing these dents and i... READ MORE

My procedure is at 11:45 today and I couldn't sleep last night. I hope I'm happy with my choice of doing this. I've wanted to do this since I was 14 years old and I'm finally getting it done. I will add photos of before and after soon. Thanks to all the people that have shared their stories on... READ MORE

I went to my doctor, Dr. Andrew Miller, to get evaluated for a rhinoplasty. I wanted to get rid of my Caucasian bump on my nose, making it smaller.
