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 ›

Chin Implant - Finally - Manassas, VA

I'm excited but nervous as we all are before any procedure. I first visited a Cosmetic Surgeon about a chin implant back when I was in my 20's. I seriously considered it at that time, but then the kids came along and my chin didn't seem to be that important. Three years ago, and six kids... READ MORE

Chin Implant - Saint Louis, MO

The implant definitely helped my profile. However, it looks somewhat crooked. On the right side I feel a something firm underneath my chin and I'm not sure if the implant is positioned incorrectly or this is excess scar tissue. It feels like it is higher on the left side. I cannot get into him... READ MORE

Too Small? Denver, CO

I've wanted a chin implant for over 10 years now, and I finally decided to go through with it. I'm only 5 days post op right now, but I'm concerned it might be too small. I don't feel like I have any more swelling, so I'm hoping it doesn't get any smaller. I told my doctor I wanted a small,... READ MORE

Scarred for Life - Bellevue, WA

Dr. Philip Young broke a bone in my jaw by screwing in jaw implants and breaking the jaw bone. This bone sat floating around under my skin for 7 months. I could not work, I could not leave my home as the blood needed to be drained every 3 hours. Then, after attempts to find the cause of the... READ MORE

Amazing Experience - Cincinnati, OH

I originally went in to discuss a nose job because I felt it protruded too much. Dr. Martin instantly said I did not need that and suggested I needed a more prominent chin too balance out my nose. I hadn't thought about that before but it made perfect sense. He liposuctioned my neck and... READ MORE
