do I need a 2nd Chin Aug...or is it good now?

#1 Post by timbbusa »

Hey Guys!
About 3 weeks ago I had Jaw surgery done which included advancing the lower mandible, moving around the upper jaw, a turbinectomy and then a sliding genioplasty!

I am thinking about having a 2nd Genioplasty done to make my chin a little more prominent than it is now. The first genioplasty went well, but its hard for me to judge if it looks good. Sometimes I think that maybe I should just get another one done but with an implant this time to make the chin even stronger…I don’t know though.

I haven’t yet talked to my surgeon to see if he would even do a second chin aug.

What do you think, does it look corrected now? Or do I need a second procedure?

I have included 3 before pictures and the rest are all after pictures…

I think you look great. Your face look much more balanced now. I would not touch it.
Noam.

Great results-- I second (well, third) the previous replies. This is ESPECIALLY true because you are only 3 weeks out...I'm nearly 9 weeks and am just now starting to really "judge" my results. You probably still have a lot of swelling, especially in the upper lip which can make the chin/lower jaw not look as pronounced as it actually is. My upper lip swelling has finally gone away and now I can see how my new lower jaw really looks. Give it time-- you'll see what we're seeing soon!

looks great now. I would not do a thing.

You still have some swelling I'm sure. Also remember that when the braces are gone the lips will probably retract a bit as well giving the appearance of a longer jaw.
