I lost 130 pounds which left me with some gobble gobble, well I saved and my wonderful boyfriend is going to help me get it removed. My date is set fro April 28th, I have been waiting 1 and half months. I am soooo excited, I know it will be a tough recovery but I am so ready for this. I know... READ MORE

Growing up I had a very underdeveloped lower jaw. At 13 my orthodontist wanted to perform orthognathic surgery on me (breaking my jaws to re-align them), however after a year of headgear, my overbite was more manageable. Although the overbite was manageable, I've always been very self aware of... READ MORE

Hi I have had a chin implant, it is 3 weeks post surgery, I am very happy with the aesthetic result The scar however is a bit concerning, I thought it would be less visible at 3 weeks, it's quite red, bumpy and swollen at different ends I have been using invincible scar scream 3 times a day...

This was before the surgery. I am so used to clinch my teeth together so people won't notice my chin miss alignment. The doctor told me he will put some anchor to keep my mentalis muscle in place. I will upload the a video later a week after the surgery.. I will upload a new video next week... READ MORE

I've always had a fuller face, but after high school & gaining some weight in college, I developed a prominent double chin. I had a pretty active lifestyle, & my work was physically demanding, so although my weight may have fluctuated by 15-20 pounds over the years, this chin would not go away,... READ MORE

I had a botched le fort 1 jaw surgery and sliding genio in june of 2013. It's been a horrible experience and I honestly don't know how I've coped for this long.  I was an attractive girl before this surgery that was going to fix my overbite and slightly recessed chin; now I don't even want to ...

I wanted a more masculine jaw line, therefore we discussed many options we came into a conclusion of using injectable fillers, simply because we wanted to see results before getting into more permanent thing. I'm very pleased with the income. Many friends did actually noticed it and they too... READ MORE

I had a moderate cross-bite that never allowed me to bite down with all of my teeth. This caused a facial asymmetry and protruded my jaw. I could not have asked for a better surgeon than Dr. Huynh. From the initial interview to the surgery and follow-up appointments, I received the utmost best... READ MORE

I have wanted a more pronounced chin since I was about 13. I have always worn a goatee to hide my weak chin. I finally decided to get a chin implant done. I just had procedure done today. Unfortunately, it still looks way to small for my desire. Ill wait for my check up and discuss this with Dr.... READ MORE

If you are deciding between a chin implant and sliding genioplasty, please read my experience. In July 2010 I had a rhinoplasty and chin augmentation via chin implant (Implantech XL silicone). The implant gave me more projection, but I could feel it in my face, which was obviously awkward and... READ MORE

What do you think is worth it if I have a normal bite but i just don't like my long chin? Any advice is a great help? Thank you... I had braces for 3 in a half years it got my teeth straight but did not fix my chin... Is it better to do just a chin reduction surgery? Thank you for all your help... READ MORE

I consulted with a few jaw surgeons to find out what I could do to improve my appearance. Double jaw surgery was recommended by all of them, but it was ultimately too expensive and I didn't want to wear braces. I, therefore, opted to just get my chin advanced to mask my jaw issues as best I... READ MORE

Please ask Dr. Eppley. He seems to know the most about the procedures that augment the chin in all forms. I don't have much to say on here, but it's telling me I need to say more about it, so... um... it was worth it, it wasn't risky, everybody saw an old picture I used to think was a good one...

I had my first consult with a plastic surgeon when I was 19 years old. I am now 46 and just went for my second consult to address a weak chin. The first doctor told me they would need to break my jaw. I declined. This time Dr. Ceydeli recommended a large chin implant. He seems very nice and I... READ MORE

I just had genioplasty surgery done about 7 days ago (so there is still swelling) and I am upset because I feel like the difference isnt even noticeable... The doctor said he moved the bone out 4mm, but I'm starting to think that wasnt enough. Not sure if I should keep waiting for the swelling... READ MORE

I am a mixed (black & white) 38 year old female that's starting to show signs of aging. I have had a few of surgeries with the "best plastic surgeons in Atlanta" . The best plastic surgeons in Atlanta gave me a crooked chin implant (really due to my underlying anatomy but Hell if ur "the... READ MORE

Do not walk but run quickly away from this doctor, he ruined my face. A little background: I transitioned at 18 years old in the early 90s. I had a few nips and tucks over the years and passing was never an issue. I had my chin filed down in 2004 by a well known ffs doctor in Chicago. He... READ MORE

I had a sliding genioplasty to move my chin forward 5mm.The procedure took 2 hours and I was in recovery for 2 hours then home. ice packs for 24 hours and I took strong painkillers for 7 days and didn't leave the house for about 7 -10 days, very swollen and bruised, peaking at day 3. Looks like... READ MORE

Originally I thought I was completely nuts to be looking into this procedure but I have always been extremely conscious of my side profile and hated it when photos were taken from that angle. After almost two years of internet research and reading experiences on Realself, I decided to take the... READ MORE

This review is written about 3 weeks post op. I had a sliding genioplasty because of my receeded chin, which I was very self-conscious about, and lip incompetence. I was hoping it would fix both. I first met with a maxillofacial plastic surgeon, then an oral surgeon experienced in doing sg's.... READ MORE
