chin implant removal - please share your experiences

I had mine implanted exactly a week ago. I only wanted it to make my chin appear stronger in my profile. Doctor said the results would be very subtle. I feel huge. It's almost like it not only made my chin stronger, but made my appearance almost masculine. I had the surgery done only because I was having septoplasty/rhinoplasty. I had breathing and ear infections my whole life and decided to do the nose. While searching for a plastic surgeon, they all kept suggesting chin... Somehow I got it in my head to do the chin as well. I used one of the best plastic surgeons in Miami. I'm so upset right now. I have to go to work on Monday and I don't want to. The only plastic surgery I've ever really cared for is a boob job, I did my nose because i had to and my chin was pure vanity. I'm keep seeing the real housewives of beverly hills and I'm scared I look distorted now.
Did anyone's chin improve over time? I feel like much of the swelling is gone at this point.

I'm a female of 25 yrs of age. I only wanted neck lipo really but the front desk girl recommended lipo with an implant and the doctor confirmed. I'm an idiot really for not doing the research about removal. The large silicon implant w/ wings was placed 2 wks ago and I've begged the PS to take it out every day since then. It even feels like my body is begging me to take it out. So... My appointment is tomorrow at 4pm. I am going to have it removed but I am nervous that maybe the bone was sawed for filed for the implant and won't look the same. We'll see. I found a doctor that does a submental tuck surgery in the even that I do have sagging or a "witches chin". This is so sad. And completely self inflicted. If nothing else; I can say this was a very expensive life lesson. I'm really hoping this is reversible. I've been having nervous breakdowns with crying since the day after placement. By the way, I was told it wasn't very painful, but it was! It was so painful for two wks, and I'm only just starting to get sensation back!

Given your age and how short of a time you've had the implant I really doubt you'll have to worry about sagging. It should shrink up. They don't usually do anything to your bone either, so I'd say not to worry too much about it. It's an easy procedure to remove it too. I had one removed and replaced under iv sedation and local and it was a breeze. Mine was reduced from a 10mm (huge) to a 5 mm and there were no problems. best of luck.

Hi all,

I know it's been years since these posts, but please, will someone tell me of their outcome after having taken the chin implant out? I am 11 days post op, and I cannot stand this chin, I need it out now. However, I am deathly afraid of all the possible complications, nerve damage, ruined smile, dimpling, skin sagging, and everything else I've read about that is scaring me half to death.

Someone please respond and let me know how their removal went. Has your chin went back to normal, the way it looked before the implant was placed? Or did you experience any complications?

I anxiously await your response,

Sad Lana

Had chin implant removed 5 weeks ago dis tape my lose chin tight fir a few week and now I would say it is tight again, I am too afraid to trust another doctor again to redo this - ivwas sooo lied to by dr Marco Rodas, whom damaged a facial nerve while removing it under local anesthesia!!!! Check their credentials beforehand then wait at least one month!!!!

I underwent a chin implant procedure with submental liposuction 6 days ago. I'm still swollen and my chin and lower lip are numb. Can't move my lower lip much; it looks paralyzed. My smile looks strange as well. So far, I'm not too happy with the results, but my chin doesn't look terrible. I now my old chin and feel like a part of me is dead. I regret having done this to myself. What I'm concerned with now is the fact that if I leave the implant in, I risk complications in the future: displacement, bone erosion, infection, etc. If I decide to have it removed, I could, and more than likely will, get a deformity (how bad it'll be remains to be seen). I'm 28, male, and pretty lean and fit. I think my implant is a large silicon with wings. Everyday I get this tightening sensation in my chin, and it sucks. I've been depressed since I've had surgery. When I talked to my ps, he told me that he did not want to talk about having it removed--that I should give it some time. I have an appointment to see him again today and will, once again, tell him that I want it removed. If he refuses to remove it, I will contact a surgeon who is willing to do so. Once it's gone, I will continue to update you guys with posts about my recovery. If anybody has a story to share, please do so. Thanks. Best of luck to everyone.

I'm thinking about keeping them. It's better than having a deformity after removal. Plus, two people have already told me that I look great. And I'm pretty healthy and have regular checkups, so idk. Yolo. Sorry, been a bit paranoid and borderline lately.
