Am I Good Candidate For A Chin Implant?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Interested in a chin implant. Have had Botox/Radiesse injections in the area previously, seeking more permanent treatment. I have attached photo which show the effects of Radiesse. Other photos are most recent with Radiesse having gone away.

A: There is not a true matched side profile of a before and after injectable filler outcome. The only black and white jacket outcome that i see is an oblique view,..,.,which does not tell me how much chin augmentation change you have achieved with the filler or some indication of what you are seeking.

I would question the wisdom of an implant given your very recessed chin with hyperactive mentalis muscle. Its indication in your type of chin would only be if the amount of chin augmentation was small/modest. (e.g., under 5mms) Anything more than that in your chin type is better off long term with a sliding genioplasty.
