Can I Swap Out My Older Round Chin Implant for a Square Chin Implant?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in swapping out my Older Style Chin Implant for a Square Terino Style Implant or something similar . My issue with the one I have is I am constantly laying Filler over it to keep the look I like . I enclosed some Pictures as well .All I am after is lil more projection in Chin and where it wraps to Mandible I would like a Lil Squareness not so much round.The Pic of the Guy I enclosed is soo Subltle but I like the Squareness of his look which I prefer .

A:My assumption based on your description and picture is that you are looking for a wider (not necessarily more square chin appearance since that is what fillers can achieve) While I am not a fan of the standard square chin implants, because they are poorly designed if a square chin look is the desired result, they do make the chin wider.  In that regard the style 1 square chin implant may suffice. But if a truly more square chin look is desired then a custom chin implant design is needed.
