Can The Chin Portion Of Custom Jawline Implant Be Placed Submentally?

Q: Dr. Eppley, for a custom jawline implant, can the chin implant component be placed submentally?

I ask because I have slight chin ptosis / excess tissue from a previously removed chin implant and would like a submental tuck done at the same time.

A: In most men a custom jawline implant is placed through a three incisional technique, one of which is the external submental incision through which the entire implant is inserted.
