Will chin implant be better than genioplasty? What are the disadvantages of a chin implant? Will it wear off my chin in later years? What techniques and kinds of chin implants do you recommend? I was thinking that I don't need chin implant and that maybe facial lipo might help with my chin. What do you think is best?

Chin Implant or Genioplasty - My chin is short.
I have found that placement of a silastic chin implant, through a small curved incision under the chin (also allows excess skin removal) to be very safe, quick, highly effective and far less invasive than a sliding genioplasty. I perform chin implant surgery in 30 minutes or less, often using a local anesthetic alone. In my opinion, you are a good candidate for chin implant surgery. Liposuction won't create the proper chin projection provided by a chin implant.
Hope this helps.
