What Is The Cost For Chin Implant Revision and Chin Ptosis Correction?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I recently had a stock chin implant procedure which resulted in lack of desired projection but most importantly chin ptosis during animation. Just wanting to know the approximate price range to perform a stock chin implant revision + chin ptosis correction.
A: I would need to know more information about the past chin implant procedure (incisional approach, type of implant, any x-rays of it) and what your chin ptosis looks like. It is incredibly rare to develop chin ptosis from placing a chin implant as it almost always occurs from removing a chin implant. The only scenario I can currently envision that could account for chin ptosis is if the implant was placed intraorally and it was positioned too high, thus driving down the soft tissue chin pad.
