What Are My Realistic Options In Getting A Chin Implant?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hey, I am somewhat contemplating getting a chin implant and was wondering what are realistic options.

A: Thank you for your inquiry. I am not absolutely sure what you mean by ‘realistic options’. But in any form of facial augmentation, including that of the chin, the first step is to determine your aesthetic goals and the dimensional requirements to achieve them. (projection, length and width) Knowing the dimensional requirements then allows one to determine if a standard or custom chin implant is best suited to achieve them.

To determine your aesthetic chin augmentation goals I would need pictures as well as a description of your goals to do computer imaging from which we can then determine what would be the appropriate chin augmentation approach for you.
