Chin Implant Revision for Chubby Chin

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in information on a chin implant. I have currently have a chin implant However I’m not quite satisfied with the results.  I’m not sure of what kind of implant I have however I can get that information. I feel that my chin appears very “chubby” and I was expecting more of a narrow silhouette. I will attach before and after pics. The first two are before and the second two are now. 

A: Standard chin implants by definition can not make a more narrow chin as the most common type of chin implant used has extended wings…which always makes the chin wider in the front view. I suspect you have an extended anatomic chin implant with long side wings. It would be crucial to know exactly what type of chin implant you have.

Fo your chin implant revision you need a central chin implant with no wings that creates more of a V-shape to the front of the chin. This is what most female chin augmentations need in my experience.
