For A Permanent Chin Augmentation After Trying Fillers Would An Implant Or Sliding Genioplasty Be Best For Me?

Q: Dr Eppley, Attached are before and after photos of me having received chin filler. I am seeking a permanent solution and I am possibly interested in setting up a virtual consultation and traveling to you as it seems you specialize in this procedure. Could you provide me information on your pricing?Do you feel I would need just a chin implant or if there is a different procedure you’d recommend? How long I would be out of town for? And would I have to wait for my filler to dissolve before getting treatment? My desired results are those from the first screenshot with the pink blush. 

Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you.

A:Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. By looking at the chin filler change that appears to be about a 5 to 6mm horizontal advancement change. I even did my own imaging of what the type of chin augmentation change I think you are looking to achieve. Given this modest amount of change I would go with a chin implant as opposed to a sliding genioplasty. You would not have to dissolve your filler before having the procedure.
