How Can I Reduce My Medpor Chin Implant To Look Less Masculine?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a Medpor chin implant that I’ve been unhappy with for years. Approximately a year after the initial surgery I had the same doctor shave it down and it’s better but still too masculine. I’m desperate for a slight alteration to narrow it a bit, if possible. Please let me know if I can schedule a virtual consult. Thank you!

A: If you had it shaved down in place then those results are going to be very limited. As a female if you are trying to get rid of the extended wings (which many females are as that style of chin implant is usually not appropriate for most women) it is much better to extract the implant and replace it with a better implant style. This is the more assured corrective approach.
