Will Custom Chin Implant Stretch Out The Skin Below The Chin?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi, you seem very experienced in custom chin implants. My question is if you want to increase vertical chin height using an implant, will the implant blend with the sub mental skin under the chin (neck) perfectly using custom chin implant?

A: I am not sure what you mean by ‘blend with the submental skin under the chin’. The implant blends into the bone as that is what it sits on. But I think you mean will the skin from the bottom of the chin from the vertical lengthening stretch out below the chin and not look indented…and that answer would be yes.
