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

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

On March 07, 2016, Dr. Fialkov performed sliding genioplasty, mandibular jaw angle reduction, and buccal fat removal surgery on me. This is the most extensive surgery I have ever had in my life! I was very nervous in the beginning, but Dr. Fialkov was very patient and his professional knowledge... READ MORE

I am glad I did my research and found Dr. Eppley online. I am very happy with my results. The Chin Reduction made the most difference in my appearance and the Septorhinoplasty made a world of a difference on my nose. The Paranasal Augmentation (Implant) created the appearance of the same effect... READ MORE

I had a 7mm sliding genioplasty with Dr Gunson, in Santa Barbara, about three weeks ago. I spent a long time searching for a surgeon, and although he is not well marketed, I found him on a jaw surgery forum. I'm very pleased with the results and the recovery has been a total breeze. I had a... READ MORE

Since my childhoodI had problems because of mine to my small chin. I was often teased and was very shy. Start of this year I have found the swiss "Clinic Prof. Sailer" on the internet. In this clinic my chin was enlarged. The operation was not cheap but painless. I can only recommend this... READ MORE

At 4-weeks post op, my chin is starting to be more defined and I couldn't be any happier. 2weeks ago, I was worried that my chin looks too big, but Doctor Kunachak said I should wait longer, and now, while I still feel a little swelling here and there, I think the size is turning out perfect for...

Earlier last year, I underwent an operation called a sliding genioplasty to correct for a weak chin. The outcome was a success as I achieved a more balanced facial profile and gained more self confidence. The advantage of this operation is that it allows for greater versatility to alter the...
