Is A Chin Implant Worth It For 2mls Of Volume?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hello! I had specific questions about the chin implant. I got 2ml of chin filler done this past month and I absolutely love the results! However chin filler isn’t a permanent solution, and it’s also a costly upkeep and migration is bound to happen. I was wondering if for someone in my case who only needed 2ml of chin filler for the desired look, is chin implant worth it? What type of implant is best? Medpor? Silicone? And can custom chin implant provide a v-shaped chin like the fillers? I do not like the regular look of chin implant because they are too boxy.

A: A chin implant is worth it unless you want to continue with ongoing fillers. The key is a silicone chin implant that has been made into a v-shape that provides the slight needed horizontal augmentation.
