I had a chin implant with lipo done about 5 years ago and I have always been very unhappy with both. The implant looks asymmetrical and placed incorrectly. It's very noticeable when I smile.
Has my chin implant been placed properly? Can it be corrected or will it just make things worse? (photos)

Chin Implant Asymmetry
Chin implant revision surgery
A certain level of asymmetry of the face and chin is normal and expected. Modifying the implant is a possible solution to improve symmetry. However, would revision chin implant surgery be worth it? It would be difficult to determine without examination by a surgeon.

If you did not have the asymmetry before surgery, it is possible that your implant may be in the incorrect position. It also may be possible that your jaw may be asymmetrical that may be enhancing the undesirable result. Since you are not happy with the result, I would suggest a revision operation. This may involve either re-contouring the bone of the chin, replacing the implant, or adjusting the current implant. Hope this helps! Dr. Sajan
